This week, we got a little Scandinavian sparkle in Norway as Crown Princess Mary of Denmark made a visit to her Norwegian royal counterparts in Oslo.
Crown Princess Mary’s short official visit began on Friday with a stop at Oslo’s city hall, where she joined Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway for the opening of a conference on green and sustainable cities. Here, Mary greets Oslo’s mayor, Marianne Borgen.
Here, the three royals pose outside city hall as they arrive for the conference. All wore elegant business day wear, and I think the two crown princesses wore almost matching shoes.
Jewelry for this daytime event was kept simple. Mary matched her gold and diamond earrings and gold bracelets and ring to the gold buttons on her black-and-white polka dot dress.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit didn’t wear any visible jewelry for the conference session, but her vintage-inspired jacket and skirt were almost elegant enough on their own. Simple pearl studs would have been my choice with the outfit—and because her ears are hidden behind her hair in all the photos I’ve seen from the event, that may well be what she wore.
On Friday evening, Crown Princess Mary joined Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon, and Crown Princess Mette-Marit at an official dinner celebrating the opening of Norway’s new National Museum in Oslo.
Queen Sonja wore an ivory evening gown with a tan detail at the waist for the event. Sonja absolutely loves ultra-modern jewelry, and she went all out for this dinner. She wore an avant-garde silver collar necklace with coordinating earrings for the event. She finished the look with bracelets on both wrists, including her signature stack of slim bangles on her left wrist.
Crown Prince Haakon was dapper as usual in his tuxedo for the dinner. Crown Princess Mette-Marit went for a throw-back ’60s/’70s-inspired dress in a bright shade of pink, with dark pink and orange accents.
She accessorized with a pair of amethyst and aquamarine earrings. Queen Sonja has a similar pair of earrings, but the setting is different from this pair.
Crown Princess Mary wore a Grecian-inspired gown with a one-shoulder neckline. It’s an interesting shade that I can’t quite put my finger on. Dusty rose? Terracotta?
The dress came with its own accessory: a belt set with large orange gems. She carried the warm tones of the ensemble through to her jewelry, wearing gold earrings with seashell details, plus gold bracelets on both wrists.
After Crown Princess Mary’s return to Denmark, the Norwegian royals gathered in Oslo again on Saturday for the official opening of the new National Museum.
King Harald V and Queen Sonja led the royal contingent at the ceremony.
With her blue suit and hat, Queen Sonja wore another set of major modern silver jewels: half-moon-shaped earrings, plus an enormous textured silver collar that reminds me a little of a traditional torc necklace. It looks so heavy, but I’m guessing it’s actually quite light. Another small necklace with a heart-shaped pendant peeked out from beneath the large necklace. Sonja also wore her stack of bangles on her left wrist and a diamond ring on her right hand.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit, arriving here with Crown Prince Haakon, was elegant in neutrals for the museum opening.
She wore pearl earrings for the ceremony, plus a large, festive statement bracelet on her right wrist and rings on both hands.
