Besides participating in a state visit, Norway national day, the trip to Ghana and the UNAIDS Summit in Mali, has MM done anything after their two months vacation?  Confused

There is not much else she did  Thinking
Immediately after their long trip she attended the World Economic Forum in Davos. Then there was the two day visit in Trondheim/region where she also attended the Trondheim International Student Festival (plus speech  Thumb up), together with Queen Sonja: Tea Time campaign of the Norwegian Centre against Racism - they visited a Muslim family. And she did this Harvard course thing. That's all I can recall at the moment. Oh and she visited the UN headquarter in Geneva.
The Couple attended a board meeting with their Humanitarian Fund but I never saw pictures or anything about it. I hope she works and/or studies a lot behind the doors, otherwise it would be too sad  Sad But I can't help it, I like her  Cute

I wonder what the Norwegians think about it?

The Vasa is really pretty!  Wonder why she doesn't wear that one more often?  I thought of another of hers, but I can't remember the name of it - it's very cheap-looking and basically looks like wire and little blue beads.  If I could remember the name, I'd search for a picture.

The monogram is definitely rather odd. Crazy

It seems that Norway doesn't expect Mette to have an important role anyway, not even the queen does while the king and Haakon have many events.

She doesn't even go to the opening of parliament.

There is actually a historical explanation for MM's absence from the parliament. The Crown Princess has never attended the opening of parliament, and even Queen Sonja had to "fight" to be allowed once her husband ascended to the throne. Maud attended, but since her death in 1938, there hadn't been a queen of Norway, so the rationale when Sonja came along in 1991/1992 was that she didn't need to attend either.

Yes, I know but imo it's an example of what Norway expects of the CP wife.
