Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit made a visit to Norwegian Rescue Dogs as it celebrates it’s 60th anniversary this year.  It is a volunteer organization that helps with around 500 search operations each year and covers all of Norway.  They saw a presentation indoors and then moved outside to see how the dogs are trained in search and rescue.


Requested by @castillollaurel​: Haakon & Mette-Marit pda/cutest moments

There is a story from her school days that will be remembered forever. As the class was making a collage of pictures from the glossy magazines, unlike her friends, who were interested in the royal children, Mette-Marit declared, “Haakon Magnus is childish!” — Mette-Marit before meeting Crown Prince Haakon.

“…For now we’re here. Now we’re together. Mette-Marit, I love you.” — Haakon in his wedding speech to his newly wife.
