Re: the first photo I think she's in the middle just because the photographer bookended them by gender/height: man-child-odd item out-child-man.
But I too noticed there's no photo of Haakon touching her. Interesting. The way they're posed in these, there isn't one where it would have been natural for him to have an arm around her, but it would have been natural to make one.
I'm surprised there isn't a photo of just MM and Haakon together. While they might not be touching each other in the photos, I don't detect a coldness between them that is so evident between F&M.
Otherwise, the family looks together and in sync. At least they look happy.
I can't imagine the F&M family in these poses. All members standing in a row holding hands and smiling? Not in a million years.
Also note that the kids are well-dressed and well-groomed. They're wearing good quality clothes that fit them. They're bright, simple and suitable for a vacation in the country. Boys' hair are trimmed. Ingrid's hair is neatly braided. No shoes with holes. Ingrid isn't wearing something handed down from Marius. No disheveled children. When have all F&M's kids ever looked this good at a single event?
