The future king and queen of the United Kingdom just had a reunion with the future king and queen of Norway!
Today, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed Norway’s Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit at Windsor Castle, their first official meeting since the Waleses visited Oslo back in 2018.
For the occasion, Kate suited up in a sleek emerald green blazer and matching pleated trousers. Underneath the blazer, she wore a bespoke Burberry pussy bow blouse. Meanwhile, Mette-Marit wore a vibrant red midi dress with subtle puffy sleeves, paired with dark brown pumps.
The two heirs matched in navy blue suits—William pairing his with a red tie and Haakon with a blue tie.
The purpose of today’s meeting was to explore green energy solutions with representatives from leading Norwegian businesses, including Alex Grant, senior vice president and U.K. country manager of Equinor; Øivind Eriksen, CEO of Aker ASA; and Børre Jacobsen, managing director of Northern Lights JV. Joining them at the roundtable was also Wegger Christian Strømmen, a Norwegian ambassador to the United Kingdom.
So far, William and Kate have had a jam-packed week of engagements. The couple attended the Wales vs. England Six Nations rugby match, visited the headquarters of the Wales Air Ambulance charity, and participated in a parade for St. David’s Day.
This week, William was also announced as the royal patron of the Wales Air Ambulance charity. It is his first patronage since receiving the Prince of Wales title.
“The Prince has first-hand experience of working in the unique and often challenging air ambulance environment,” Sue Barnes, chief executive of the Wales Air Ambulance charity, said in a statement. “We look forward to our new relationship with the prince as our charity continues to support a lifesaving service for the people of Wales.”
