After tweeting about their pending arrival, Haakon and Mette-Marit stopped by Bergtun Omsorgssenter (a home for the elderly) on their way home from the Easter holidays. There they took their time to talk to the inhabitants, and to have coffee and cakes with them.  Crown Prince Haakon got advice from one of the women there on how to be a good husband.

The home is close to the winter cabin the Crown Prince and Crown Princess owns, which was finished last year. According to the local paper, the cabin has been used a lot this winter, and the Crown Prince and Crown Princess have often been seen shopping for groceries in the town.

Unfortunately, Mette-Marit’s outfit didn’t seem too well constructed, as there was a tear in the back of her jacket. The tear was revealed as she bent down to talk to the kindergarteners who had shown up to welcome the Crown Prince and Crown Princess.
