The Swedish royals aren’t the only ones who celebrate winners of the Nobel Prize each year. The Peace Prize is awarded every year in Oslo, and the Norwegian royal family is always on hand for the festivities.
On Saturday, December 10, the Nobel Peace Prize was presented at Oslo’s City Hall. This year’s prize was awarded to three different individuals/organizations: human rights advocate Ales Bialiatski from Belarus, the Russian human rights organization Memorial, and the Ukrainian human rights organization Center for Civil Liberties.
King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway were on hand for the prize presentation, as were Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
Queen Sonja wore a teal suit with a matching hat and black accessories for the prize presentation.
She accessorized with a suite of jewelry made from large metallic beads. The set includes earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet. Sonja also wore her usual stack of slender gold bangle bracelets on her left wrist.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore a red jacket and dress for the presentation ceremony with a matching hat.
She accessorized with a pair of diamond and pearl drop earrings.
On Saturday evening, King Harald led the royal party as they arrived at a black-tie reception at the Grand Hotel in Oslo in honor of the Peace Prize laureates.
The royals posed for a group photo with the laureates and their representatives at the event.
For the evening celebration, Queen Sonja wore a white evening gown. She added the necklace and earrings from her modern emerald and diamond demi-parure, plus a diamond ribbon brooch and her gold bangle bracelets.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit chose the same shade of red for her evening attire that she’d worn earlier in the day.
She picked up the print of her gown by wearing earrings with pearl-encrusted circle pendants.
And she finished off the look with a sparkling diamond bracelet on her right wrist.
