Happy Birthday Mette-Marit!

Crown Princess Mette-Marit was born on August 19th, 1973, which makes today her 46th birthday! So in honor of this special occasion, I thought it might be fun to take a look back at “pre-engagement/engagement” Mette-Marit Tjessem Høiby.

Here she is heading to work in July of 2000, about three months before the news of their eventual engagement was announced.

And here they are after it was announced that they would be getting formally engaged at some point, but not just yet, in October of 2000.

And finally the official engagement on December 1st, 2000.
