King Harald: “She will always be our daughter”
For the first time King Harald of Norway commented on his daughter’s statements that she speaks with the dead. Princess Märtha Louise caused several discussions after announcing she doesn’t only talk to angels, but also to dead people.
During an interview with the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten the King admitted that parents don’t always agree with their children.
“What is important for us is that we love them.” the King said.
The newspaper also asked the King if it wouldn’t be a better choice to revoke Mártha Louise’s title “Princess”. King Harald disagreed and made clear that the title shows that Märtha Louise is still the King’s daughter. Furthermore he made clear that for him it is not really important if Märtha has a title or not. For him it wouldn’t make a difference.
King Harald also underlined he will not criticize his daughter in public. Queen Sonja previously asked the press to respect their choice and privacy.
