Members of the Norwegian royal family and Princess Beatrix of The Netherlands attended ski and ski jumping races at Holmenkollen today. Nearly everyone was seen in a woolly knit ski hat or headband. I thought the hats worn by Princess Ingrid and Prince Sverre (featuring the Norwegian flag) were particularly smart. Hats aside, it’s nice to see royals having great fun together.

The Norwegian family attended the official opening of the bicentennial celebration of the Norwegian Constitution on Sunday night at Eidsvoll, where Norwegian independence was declared. For this celebratory evening outdoors, Prince Sverre Magnus, Princess Ingrid, and Crown Princess Mette-Marit were suitably attired in cozy knit wool hats.

The Norwegian Royal Family were decidedly less formal with their Christmas millinery choices than their British royal cousins. On Christmas Eve, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Ingrid both turned up to church in warm knitted hats. I suspect these hats were chosen more for function than for appearance… but I think a woolen beret or cloche would have been preferable, especially paired with their lovely dress coats.

The 50th Ridderrenn skiing competition for the visually was held today in Beitostoelen, Norway. Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Martha-Louise cheered at the finish line; after the race, Haakon, Mette-Marit and their children Princess Ingrid and Prince Sverre Magnus skied over to a photocall. All dressed in warm ski hats, it looked like a lovely day was had by all.
