Princess Marie received this order in 2014 but there hadn’t been a state visit from Norway in a long time so I’m not sure how she received it. But in 2014, Crown Princess Mette-Marit received the Order of the Elephant so I imagine this is connected. Princess Marie hasn’t worn the Norwegian order yet.
