Mette Marit wasn't married with the father of her 1st child. Her 1st marriage is with Prince Haakon.

Her 1st child is a boy called Marius, born in 1996.

I know this is off topic but there was a funny picture of Crown Princess Mette Marit, the Queen Sonja and, last but certainly not least according to imperial dignity. The Empress Michiko of Japan, in a haile storm!

How exactly do you pronounce this name?

Is it Met-a Mare-it
Met-a Mar-eet

Is there a long or short pause between the names?

Post by: KentKim on August 11, 2005, 01:38:16 AM
Some info on her:

Mette-Marit is the youngest child of Sven Olav Bjarte Høiby and Marit Tjessem. She has two brothers and one sister: Espen, Per and Kristin.

The Crown Princess grew up in Kristiansand. When she was eleven years old her parents divorced, she stayed with her mother.

Mette-Marit studied at the Oderness Gymnasium, she also went to Australia for half a year to study, before finishing high school at kathedralschool in Kristiansand in 1994.

During the following years, Mette-Marit tried several studies and was frequently seen in the Oslo party scene, which involded drugs and alcohol.

On January 13th, 1997 she gave birth to Marius Borg Høiby, her son with Morton Borg, who has been convicted of assault and drugs dealing.

The birth of her son changed Mette-Marit's live. As a single mother, she brought up her son, worked as a waitress and enrolled at Oslo university again.

In 1999 she met Haakon at a concert in Kristiansand. After a year, the went living together. The couple got engaged on December 1st, 2000 and married on August 25th the next year.

It seems the birth of Marius changed her life for the better eh? Chances are if he hadn't been born, she wouldn't be in the position she is today...

The two e-s in Mette are short and pronounced approximately like e in "send". The a in Marit is long, pronounced somewhat like a in "father". The i in Marit is short and pronounced similar to i in "in". There is no audible pause between the names.

I've got a Scandanavian friend at work and she told me it's pronounced : Met-tay Mair-eet (but this must be said almost with a French roll of the r.) "Maaair'reet"

Although Norwegian uses more diphtongs than Swedish which is my first language (Norwegian and Swedish are closely related), the name Mette Marit (or Mette-Marit with a hyphen) is not pronounced with any diphtongs.

The pronounciation of the Norwegian "r" varies. In some dialects it resembles the French "r" and in some it's a trilled "r".

Mette is a Danish/Norwegian form of the German name Mechtild, and Marit is a Norwegian/Swedish form (one of several) of Margaret, which originally is Persian.

The double a (aa; nowadays generally written å) is pronounced somewhat like "o" in the word "California". It's a long vowel. The o in Haakon is pronounced approximately like "o" in the word "on". It's a short vowel. Stress is on the first syllable.

That's funny, that in Norway, Ingrid Alexandra will become queen over her brother, but in the British line of succession, the little prince comes first.

Any wagers on names? I'm going with something like Olav Alexander Harald (or something like that), the first two after his great-grandfather, the second after his grandfather. Olav Alexander would be cute to match his sister's name.

If it by any chance would interest anyone, Norway once had a king by the name of Sverre. Sverre Sigurdsen was the illegitimate son of king Sigurd II and a lady named Gunhild (I haven't found her last name). King Sverre was born 1150 or 1152 and died 1202. Different sources state his reign from either 1177 or 1184 until his death. He was firstly married to Astrid Roesdatter, and secondly to Margareta Eriksdotter, princess of Sweden. If I'm not mistaken, among his descendants today is queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

No, not unless his elder sister Ingrid dies before him without issue. She will become Queen of Norway after her father passes away or renouces the throne, not him.

No, since Norway nowadays has primogeniture regardless of gender, prince Sverre's older sister Ingrid will one day become the reigning queen.

Maybe I should add that the newborn prince Sverre is also a descendant of king Sverre (who died 1202). :)

I think it's just Sverre Magnus. The Norwegian Royal family has, I think, never been keen on giving their babies lots of names. For instance, king Harald has no other names than Harald.

Post by: Viscount on December 18, 2005, 10:20:01 AM
The order of succession to the Norwegian throne is described in article 6 in the Constitution of Norway:

The order of succession is lineal, so that only a child born in lawful wedlock of the Queen or King, or of one who is herself or himself entitled to the succession may succeed, and so that the nearest line shall take precedence over the more remote and the elder in the line over the younger.

An unborn child shall also be included among those entitled to the succession and shall immediately take her or his proper place in the line of succession as soon as she or he is born into the world.

The right of succession shall not, however, belong to any person who is not born in the direct line of descent from the last reigning Queen or King or a sister or brother thereof, or is herself or himself a sister or brother thereof. [...]

For those born before the year 1971, Article 6 of the Constitution as it was passed on 18 November 1905 shall, however, apply. For those born before the year 1990 it shall nevertheless be the case that a male shall take precedence over a female.

Article 6 of the original constitution had specified salic (male-only) succession; so Harald's sisters Ragnhild (b. 1930) and Astrid (b. 1932) and their descendents are excluded from the line of succession. Under the male-preference primogeniture applying to those born between 1971 and 1990, Princess Märtha Louise (b. 1971) places behind her younger brother Haakon and his descendents.

I read ten minutes ago a press releas on the Royal House of Norway's web site dated 5 december 2005, it talks about the Prince Sverre Magnus, but I found some strange words:

"The King has decided that Prince Sverre Magnus will not have the title His Royal Highness. The Prince’s birthday will not be an official flag day, and there will be no military salutes on this day.

The King’s decision does not entail any constitutional changes. Prince Sverre Magnus is third in line to the throne after Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra."

Anyone could tell me the reason why of this King's decision? Thank you!

I am the "somebody" who said that prince Sverre Magnus is related to king Sverre (Sturlason? Shouldn't the patronymicon be Sigurdsen, since his father was named Sigurd?). It is true, and here is the line:

Sverre I, 1150 or 1152-1202, king of Norway, married secondly, Margareta Eriksdotter of Sweden. Among their issue was:

A. Haakon (Håkon), died 1204, king of Norway. He was unmarried, but had issue by a lady by the name of Inge fra (of) Verteig (or Varteig; I've seen both versions), namely:

B. Haakon (Håkon) IV, 1204-1263, king of Norway. He married Margarete Skulesdotter and among their issue was:

C. Magnus VI, 1238-1280, king of Norway. He married princess Ingeborg of Denmark and among their issue was:

D. Haakon (Håkon) V, 1270-1319, king of Norway. He married secondly Euphemia von Rügen (her father was the prince of Rügen, but I'm not sure if whether she had the title princess or not), and their daughter was:

E. Ingeborg, 1301-1361, princess of Norway. She married firstly Erik, prince of Sweden, and among their issue was:

F. Euphemia, 1317-1370, princess of Sweden. She married Albrecht, duke of Mecklenburg and among their issue was:

G. Magnus, died 1384, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Elisabeth of Pomerania, and among their issue was:

I. Johann, born ca 1365, died 1422, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married secondly Katharina, princess of Saxe-Lauenburg, and among their issue was:


J. Heinrich IV, 1417-1477, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Dorothea, princess of Brandenburg, and among their issue was:

K. Magnus II, 1441-1503, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Sophie, princess of Pomerania, and among their issue was:

L. Albrecht, 1488-1547, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Anna, princess of Brandenburg and among their issue was:

M. Ulrich, 1528-1603, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Elisabeth, princess of Denmark and their only child was:

N. Sophie, 1557-1631, duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. She married Frederik II, king of Denmark, and among their issue was:

O. Christian IV, 1577-1648, king of Denmark. He married firstly Anna Katharina, princess of Brandenburg and among their issue was:

P. Frederik III, 1609-1670, king of Denmark. He married Sophie Amalie, princess (or duchess) of Brunswick-Lüneburg and among their issue was:

Q. Christian V, 1646-1699, king of Denmark. He married Charlotte, princess of Hesse-Kassel, and among their issue was:

R. Frederik IV, 1671-1730, king of Denmark. He married firstly Louise, duchess of Mecklenburg-Güstrow and among their issue was:

S. Christian VI, 1699-1746, king of Denmark. He married Sophie Magdalene, princess of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and among their issue was:

To be continued.

U. Louise, 1750-1831, princess of Denmark. She married lantgrave Karl of Hesse-Kassel, and among their issue was:

V. Louise, 1789-1867, princess of Hesse-Kassel. She married Wilhelm, duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sönderburg-Glücksburg and among their issue was:

From what I gather, King Harald saw no need to accord the new prince HRH.  There are already two Royal Highnesses in line for the throne.  As Prince Sverre Magnus's sister will one day be queen, the prince will have to find his own way in the world as his aunt has.  She is still a princess, but no longer a Royal Highness.

The King's decision has brought out very strong opinions in Norway and abroad, and not all of them in his favour.

5.12.2005

Prince Sverre Magnus


"On Monday 5 December, an extraordinary Council of State was held at the Royal Palace in Oslo, where His Majesty King Harald V announced that Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess, in consultation with The King, have decided that their newly-born son is to be named Prince Sverre Magnus.



The King asked for the Council of State’s assent to the choice of name.



The King has decided that Prince Sverre Magnus will not have the title His Royal Highness. The Prince’s birthday will not be an official flag day, and there will be no military salutes on this day.



The King’s decision does not entail any constitutional changes. Prince Sverre Magnus is third in line to the throne after Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra."

It is really strange. What has become of the monarchy when even the son of a future king isn't given a full royal title. I wonder if he will get the HRH when his father becomes king?
I can understand the wish to limit the royal family, but this is going bit to far for my taste. Its another step in making the RF less royal if you know what I meen.
Just my two cents!

If the reason why of this decision it's just to limitate using the style HRH, I guess Harald V has exagereted; in this way just the kronprinz and his first heir will be able to use the royal style...isn't it a little absurd? Really absurd if we think that the Nowegian Royal House has not so many members as others Houses, like UK Royal House!

Sorry for the sarchasm: Is the grand-father's bad health the reason for that incoherent decision towards his healthy new grand-son?...

(deep breath) Maybe one day Haakon Magnus will amend that...

The King asked for the Council of State’s assent to the choice of name.

The King has decided that Prince Sverre Magnus will not have the title His Royal Highness. The Prince’s birthday will not be an official flag day, and there will be no military salutes on this day.


I just don't understand why the King needs to "ask for the Council of State’s assent to the choice of name" and doesn't need to ask an assent about his personal decision of not granting the title of HRH to his grandson.

Stupid old man!  :P

I agree that this was a very poor descision.  Today's monarchs, in this fast changing world, seem to be leaning towards a trend to de-royalize their descendants, but they don't have the nerve to take it all the way.  Either one is royal or one is not.

I believe these monarchs are breaking ancient traditions.  In my mind, I will always think of Prince Sverre as HRH, just like I will always think of Little Louise Windsor as Princess Louise.  Also, aren't some of Queen Beatrix's grandchildren titled "Count" and "Countess"?

All this is ridiculous in my opinion!

I agree PC. However, I think that Queen Beatrix's grandchildren - some of them at least - being titled Count/ess is a tradition in itself.

I thought that some of QB's grandchildren being titled Count/ess is a matter of course rather than any sort of recent plan to 'downsize' the Dutch royal family. Someone like Lucien can probably tell you more!  :)

I have just read some press about the daughter of Mette Marit and Haakon, Princess Ingrid, 2, going to kindergarten.

Can someone tell me what sort of kindergarten a 2 year old would attend?  She is just a baby!  Where I'm from, children go to kindergarten in the year before beginning school (i.e. 4-5 years old) and sometimes they may even attend 3 year old kinder for an hour or so, but what on earth would a child of this age be going for?  ???

Grace

I believe it is more of a daycare centre. Almost all children in Sweden, and I believe that the situation in Norway is similar, have place on daycare centres from a very young age, some even from the age of one. It is generally because both parents have to work. The Norwegian royal  family have made several efforts to be "like everybody else", and I think that is why crown prince Haakon and crown princess Mette-Marit is letting princess Ingrid start being on a daycare centre (kindergarten) instead of getting her a nanny or some other similar person.

When I first heard, that Hakon Magnus will get married with Mette Marit, I was deeply shocked! After the famous Queen Maud, a daughter of Edward VII and Aleandra, after the in Norway so beloved Crownprincess Märtha and now, Queen Sonja, such a party girl with a son out of a relationship with a man, who was criminal in the past! Terrible!
I thought: that is the end of the monarchie in Norway!
But: I must confess, more and more, Mette Marit doed her duties well and she is really a good mother.
If you like to see new photos from her and family in snow, here my tipp:

Every time nice photos!

A diphthong is two vowels belonging to the same syllable and with no "stop" between them. Most people think they are one sound. :) Sometimes diphthongs are spelled with two letters, but not always. Examples of diphthongs in English would be words like: house, time, stone, file and sour.

A "pure" vowel or a monophthong is simply a "pure" vowel sound, like a in father, u in sun, or o in ton.

I read a reprinted article in Gilbert’s Royalty Digest that the Norwegian royal family has lost much support and lost even more with the Crown Prince’s marriage to Mette Marit.  The article seemed to suggest that such marriages by themselves can/will soon bring the monarchy in Norway.  Doesn’t appear that MM gets credit for turning her life around and being a good mother.  On a certainly level I have to agree.  Isn’t it implicit that mothers and fathers are supposed to be responsible and a good example.  I am not suggestion perfection.  However, rhetorically speaking, is this too much to expect from modern royalty?

I heard the same criticism about Prince Felipe marriage to Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, a divorcee regardless of the civil rather than religious marriage ceremony.

Has any one heard the same criticism?

The Princess was visiting Kiev this week.She had an accident there as she tripped over and fell causing her a concussion so she had to skip most of the agenda unfortunately.She was in Ukraine as the representative of UNAIDS,thus raising awareness for HIV/AIDS.She didn't want to let the local HIV/AIDS group down and invited them up to her hotelroom.Yesterday she was able to visit the Scandinavian school in Kiev.

I think he'll make a good princely figure in Norway's history though he's not officially a son of Haakon, his RH.
Haakon would be considerate to  him, obviously. They have a good relationship (as we can see on the pictures).
Thanks for the pics, anyway, Alexandre64!

My own feeling is that he will remain "Mister," or the equivalent thereof.  His MOTHER has made a very important and highly-placed marriage, but HE is not royalty or noble/aristocratic.  I do not think that he will even be awarded a "courtesy title" of nobility.  He has a father (whom he sees/visits ) and he bears that name, not that of the Royal House.  It is my impression that the Scandinavian monarchies (and others) have severely curtailed the awarding of titles of nobility, especially titles that can be handed down to the next generation/s..    AP

True.Marius,cute as he is,will never get a title because of the reasons you mention.

On the other hand he's as much a member of this close knitted Family and treated as one by the other members of the RF,they love him.

Norway has no nobility, there are no titles that can be assigned to him. Norway has 'prince, princess, king, queen and that's it. Marius is not a child of a prince so he'll be a Mr when he's an adult. The children of princesses also have no titles, Princesses Ragnild, Astrid and Martha-Louise's children are all Mr, Miss and Mrs.

No Princess Martha-Louise's daughters are all in line to the throne but they are plain 'Miss". Princesses Ragnild and Astrid were princesses but never in line to the throne as until 1991, it was male only succession, being female they were not heirs. Martha-Louise is older than her brother but she asked that she not be heir when the laws of succession were changed in 1991 as she was not brought up to be heir, Haakon was. But her children were in the line of succession and they have no titles. ( Just like Princess Anne's children are in the British line of succession and have no titles)

Wow, you seem to be almost fluent in Swedish. You know the most important word; Hej and Jag älskar dig. :)

The photo was taken in June 2008 when the family was hiking in Svalbard.

I don't know if they are close but they do accept each other, but it took some time. They were not very impressed by Mette Marit when they first met her. She did not have a suitable past.

I don't know why, I have the impression that this would be the Parthenon of Athens...Do you have some news about a recent journey of the royal family of Norway in Greece, or Turkey?

I just looked at their website but I couldn't find anything.
Alexandre - did it say where the photo was taken were you found the photo?

I was wrong, it was in Split, Croatia.

I agree! Haakon and Mette Marit is one of my favorite royal couples as well.. I think they look very happy together and very down to earth. I also like the fact that their history is a little bit of a fairytale.

I absolutely love Sonja's hairstyle. I said it before and I am saying it again.

Thank you for these lovely photos! :)

i see that sombody said that the new norwigian prince Sverre magnus is related to the king Sverre Sturlasson who died in 1202.
that it not true. The Royal Family today has no relation whit the Norwigian Royal family frome the viking ages.
that line died out with Haakon VI When he died in 1380.


I am the "somebody" who said that prince Sverre Magnus is related to king Sverre (Sturlason? Shouldn't the patronymicon be Sigurdsen, since his father was named Sigurd?). It is true, and here is the line:

Sverre I, 1150 or 1152-1202, king of Norway, married secondly, Margareta Eriksdotter of Sweden. Among their issue was:

A. Haakon (Håkon), died 1204, king of Norway. He was unmarried, but had issue by a lady by the name of Inge fra (of) Verteig (or Varteig; I've seen both versions), namely:

B. Haakon (Håkon) IV, 1204-1263, king of Norway. He married Margarete Skulesdotter and among their issue was:

C. Magnus VI, 1238-1280, king of Norway. He married princess Ingeborg of Denmark and among their issue was:

D. Haakon (Håkon) V, 1270-1319, king of Norway. He married secondly Euphemia von Rügen (her father was the prince of Rügen, but I'm not sure if whether she had the title princess or not), and their daughter was:

E. Ingeborg, 1301-1361, princess of Norway. She married firstly Erik, prince of Sweden, and among their issue was:

F. Euphemia, 1317-1370, princess of Sweden. She married Albrecht, duke of Mecklenburg and among their issue was:

G. Magnus, died 1384, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Elisabeth of Pomerania, and among their issue was:

I. Johann, born ca 1365, died 1422, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married secondly Katharina, princess of Saxe-Lauenburg, and among their issue was:

J. Heinrich IV, 1417-1477, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Dorothea, princess of Brandenburg, and among their issue was:

K. Magnus II, 1441-1503, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Sophie, princess of Pomerania, and among their issue was:

L. Albrecht, 1488-1547, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Anna, princess of Brandenburg and among their issue was:

M. Ulrich, 1528-1603, duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He married Elisabeth, princess of Denmark and their only child was:

N. Sophie, 1557-1631, duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. She married Frederik II, king of Denmark, and among their issue was:

O. Christian IV, 1577-1648, king of Denmark.

There is also a line closer to the line of succession:

F. Euphemia, 1317-1370, Princess of Sweden and Norway. She married Albrecht, Duke of Mecklenburg and among their issue was:

G. Ingeborg of Mecklenburg, 1340-1395. She married Heinrich II, Count of Holstein, and among their issue was:

H. Gerhard VI 1367-1404, Count of Holstein and Duke of Schleswig. He married Elisabeth of Brunswick-Lüneburg, and among their issue was:

I. Heilwig of Holstein, 1398-1440. She married Dietrich the Fortunate, Count of Oldenburg, and among their issue was:

J. Christian I of Oldenburg, 1426-1481, King of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, Duke of Schleswig and Holstein, ancestor of the modern Danish, Norwegian and Greek RFs and the IF of Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov.

Ok I'm fairly new at learning about the RF of Norway, but since PV's wedding I've come to see them as probably the most elegant RF. I know a lot about the Queen Of England and her family but am soooo over them.

TRH are off duty for two months as they've left for a two month trip around the world with the children.
The children have dispensation from school.The trip is strictly private.Good for them,fly out as long as you
can.

Why make a big number out of putting your daughter and heir in a public school if you're just going to take her out of school for an extended period of time after only a few months, upsetting the class environment that is in its early stages of development, stressing the already very stressed teacher with making special programs and setting a very bad example for parents who increasingly are demanding to take their children out of school outside the regular school holidays in order to benefit from cheaper off-season holidays? If you can't deal with the Stalinist demands of a public school modelled on the Prussian system, go to a private school where you can pay to have a tailor-made program suited to parents' idiosyncracies.

Upsetting the class environment!!!!My Foot!Really,it takes you to put those syllables together.Stalinist demands and Prussian systems,my dear,you're as daft as they come.Good Lawd,is that a case off...if there ever was one... ::) :-X

There might be a very good reason for them to do so,and btw,they didn't make any big number to put them in public schools.At all.
Fact is the children are exceptionally bright and will catch up with homework during the trip.People wanting to have their kids off school
for numerous reasons,they've heard all  of 'm,the non-valid nonsense they come up with.So it's pure and downright jealousy of narrowminded creatures .
The kids will love it and learn of it greatly,the whole family closely togheter for two months is a great experience while they still have the chance.

Within my own family we have the exact same,one of my brothers is on a 7 month trip to Oz and New Zealand,with all the  family,two sons and one daughter.
From time to time they connect to school with the laptop and do their homework.No problem.The massive experience they have with
the whole bunch at once is so worthwhile,school at this time,can't compete.Besides,they've all three skipped a class in Gymnasium
already and won't mind to double a year if they come back and it turns out they missed too much.16 is too young to move on to University
anyway.So I wish  Haakon and Mette Marit and the three children a whale of a time!!


This ofcourse means TRH will not attend the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo on december 10th.Many more to come,the family comes first now.

Really,it takes you to put those syllables together.
Yes, it really takes a Norwegian in close contact with teachers and pedagogues to know the Norwegian public school system.....

Quote
Fact is the children are exceptionally bright and will catch up with homework during the trip
No-one with a little insight is doubting that the children will cope marvellously and that globe-trotting between charity projects really is (at least superfiscially) the best education Ingrid Alexandra can get for her future job.
It's the symbolic value, the signal it sends to other parents, that is crucial. It can also be beneficial, because it can show that this is the way people want to do things now and that the public school system, which originally was based on a Prussian model, is unable to cope, out of touch and needs new and better organisational frames.

Quote
So it's pure and downright jealousy.
Which in Norway, it has been said, is a stronger impulse than the sex drive! (Norway, now again chosen by the UN the world's best country to live in, especially for children,) has also been called "the last Stalinist country" for the negative aspects that can only be summed up in the Norwegian word ensrettethet, i.e. everybody looking the same way and thinking the same, something which often astonishes foreigners accustumed to a larger pluralism of viewpoints.

If your debating technique is that bad, I compassionately hope it was not caused by your parents withdrawing you from school for a longer period of time.

Interesting that you seem to imply that it's fine if the Crown Princely Couple are more in tune with foreign commentators than their own subjects. Wonder if it's possible to "sell out some royals?" We'd better ask Märtha Louise....

Today HRH Crwon Princess Mette-Marit celebrates her 39th birthday.On special request by the Princess there will be no
gun salute on occasion of her birthday as she doesn't see that fitting in light of the rercent tragedy in Oslo and Utoya.

Today is also the day the families and survivors of the tragedy on Utoya will visit the island this afternoon.

On sunday,the National Memorial day for the victims of Oslo and Utoya,a lunch for the bereaved will be hosted
at Oslo Plaza with TM King Harald and Queen Sonja as well as TRH Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette Marit
in attendance.After the lunch the National Memorial Service will be held at Oslo Cathedral.

It was only yesterday the last of the victims was interred,a 16 year old girl.The family had insisted on waiting
for the interment until the girls sister,also a victim at Utoya,was out of hospital again after suffering severe trauma.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit, underway on her own chartered "Book train" on the Trans-Polar Nordland Line from Bodø to Stjørdal to promote reading and literature, with a new theme on each station she is stopping at, reveals in an interview that she is a big fan of fellow sørlending (South Coast Norwegian) author Karl Ove Knausgård, hyped and praised for his six-volume authobiographical novel series called Min kamp (the Norwegian translation of Mein Kampf), translated into English as "My Struggle".

She did not just grow up in Kristiansand and drop out of school like the author, they also share a common shame issue going all the way back to childhood: A father who was an alcoholic. The death of the embarrassing fathers, which they loved and cut off, was very problematic for both of them and coïncidentally they used the same undertaker, so Mette-Marit recognizes Knausgård's descriptions of the funeral bureau from her own father's funeral.

The most memorable scene from Knausgård's six-volume œuvre is his and his brother's return to their native Kristiansand upon learning of their father's death and finding him dead in a total mess of months loads of empty bottles and garbage in the villa where he lived with his mother, their grandmother, who now, demented in a piss-soaked night dress, welcomes her grandsons, who roll up their sleeves and clean the disgusting house which once was their childhood paradise from attic to basement, litterally adding their tears to the soap water, before they bury their father. It's a profound and masterly written katharsis!

The last sentences from Knausgård's volume one resonated with Mette-Marit and she repeats them often:
For mennesket er bare en form blant andre former, som verden uttrykker igjen og igjen, ikke bare i det som lever, men også i det som ikke lever, tegnet i sand, stein og vann. Og døden, som jeg alltid hadde betraktet som den viktigste størrelsen i livet, mørk, dragende, var ikke mer enn et rør som springer lekk, en gren som knekker i vinden, en jakke som glir av en kleshenger og faller ned på gulvet.
=
For humans are merely one form among many, which the world produces over and over again, not only in everything that lives but also in everything that does not live, drawn in sand, stone, and water. And death, which I have always regarded as the greatest dimension of life, dark, compelling, was no more than a pipe that springs a leak, a branch that cracks in the wind, a jacket that slips off a clothes hanger and falls to the floor.

On a more cozy note it can be added that HRH's train was met by the South Sami book bus in Snåsa, one of the few places this very endangered language is spoken.

Norwegian crown princely couple face politicized criticism:

After attending the wedding of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo in Italy, the crown princely family boarded the luxury yacht "Mia Elise" and cruised in the Tyrrhenian Sea. See pics (http://www.dagbladet.no/2015/08/20/nyheter/kongehuset/kongefamilien/kronprinsesse_mette-marit/kronprins_haakon/40690149/). Renting the mega yacht costs $ 250 000 a week, roughly the whole annual appanage of the couple. So who is paying for this? The crown princely couple has refused to answer that question, something which has led to grave accusations of corrupt ties to Norwegian oligarchs.

A shady luxury yacht holiday in the Mediterranean awash with refugees and hotly debated rescue operations (also by Norwegian vessels) becomes an extra sensitive topic when the couple's brother-in-law, Ari Behn, publicly says he is ashamed that the Norwegian parliament has voted to only accept 8000 Syrian refugees. And when Crown Princess Mette-Marit flies directly from the fuel-guzzling yacht to the Norwegian-Swedish border to march in a "pilgrimage for climate justice" together with Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. See pics. (http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/3297642.html)

It all sounds too much like cognitive dissonance.....
