Video of Sonja showing the art in her private collection (with a few interviews with artists interspersed).  I'm not a modern art fan at all, so I couldn't care less about the paintings, but I think it's cool to see the inside of their private apartment in the Palace.

Lovely picture - Mabel is with a good bunch of people, expect they will give her a hug.

Just looked at the Elders website - she downplays her Royal connections ... am sure there are plenty of others who would have readily mentioned it!
Quote
A global advocate on peace and justice issues for almost two decades, Mabel van Oranje became Chief Executive Officer of The Elders in July 2008. She is also a founder and co-chair, together with Martti Ahtisaari and Joschka Fischer, of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

In 1993, while still a student, Mabel founded the European Action Council for Peace in the Balkans and was its CEO until 1997. She also co-founded the Dutch foundation War Child in 1995 and served on its board until 1999. In 1997, she joined the Open Society Institute in Brussels as Executive Director, becoming OSI’s International Advocacy Director in 2003.

Mabel holds a masters degree in Economics and Political Science (cum laude) from the University of Amsterdam. She helped found the global NGO coalition Publish What You Pay and the Independent Commission on Turkey, and was actively engaged in global efforts that led to the establishment of the International Criminal Court in 2002. In 2005, the World Economic Forum named her one of its Young Global Leaders.

Mabel was born in the Netherlands and lives in London with her husband and two daughters. She loves modern dance, jazz music, swimming and tweeting – follow @MabelvanOranje

Queen Sonja attended a press meeting regarding the new book "Kongens Hus" (The King's Houses) at Oscarshall today.
In the book she also tells about when her grandchildren visit them:
http://www.vg.no/rampelys...tikkel.php?artid=10065699

"We always find a table, paper and drawing pencils, it is one of the first things they ask about, so we actually have some plastic table cloths and equipment, so it is everywhere in all houses."  Thumb up
"We found a small house, which turned out to be my father in law playhouse. It was repaired, got a new roof, painted and put into the park again. Today our grandchildren playing in the same house and have their secret meetings here. Cycling is also a favorite sports on the flat gravel paths."
"The house is perfect for Christmas, something we all in the family looks forward to every year. It loves the adults, children and grandchildren. Here we walk, draw, play or baked."
"In the summer house on Mågerø writes the queen that her grandchildren are eager in pursuit of wild strawberries and cherries, and that they are zealous in the swimming pool when they are visiting."
"The royal couple like to play different games with their grandchildren, often as a pastime on board the royal train to the mountains at Easter, not to mention the Prince hut at Easter. Queen Sonja loves to do things with her grandchildren - she bakes them and make gingerbread houses. And she draws and paints a lot with them - something they all love. And many of the drawings end up on the wall at grandmother," says Kjell Arne Totland.

I'm not a huge modern art fan either, but I think it is interesting to spot the difference between the modernization of Amalienborg that Mary and Frederik had done and this one. The paintings here hang at the wall, they're not painted on as murals - which, imo, suits the buildings better.

Not exactly the most attractive tiara, earrings and necklace in the vault, are they?  They look so clunky and heavy, especially with the lace bodice of her dress.  I think she should put those in the to-be-donated-to-charity box at the palace.

And the shoulder pads showing through the lace are not a nice touch!

You're absolutely right, hanzo.  Disney it is...or Wonder Woman.
