Almost 50 royal well-wishers descended on Norway to mark the occasion, and the man at the centre of attention was clearly revelling in the festivities.
Norway's Princess Martha Louise and her sister-in-law [Crown Princess Mette-Marit] took their interest in fashion to the first port of call for any style watcher - the catwalks. The pair enjoyed front-row seats at Oslo Fashion Week on Tuesday where Martha Louise turned the VIP red carpet into something of a runway herself.
Norway's [Princess Martha Louise] had a fairytale encounter with some of Denmark's younger literary fans this week. The mum-of-two was given a warm welcome by locals when she visited the Copenhagen Book Fair to present her children's book <I>Why Kings And Queen Don't Wear Crowns</I>.
The younger members of Norway's expanding royal family have been delighting well-wishers with their appearances over recent days, and there was special excitement when the latest addition to the brood, Sverre Magnus, attended his first ever Christmas Eve church service. <br /><br />
