So when the King dies (hopefully he still lives a very long and happy life) will Martha then take the oath and act as regent?

To be regent she has to be 18 years old and take the oath to uphold and defend the norwegian constitution

So, by Norwegian monarchy law if you marry a commoner, you lose your title "Her Royal Highness"? If so, is there an exception with male royalty, since Haakon not just married to a commoner, but a young woman who had a child with another man who wasn't her husband?

I was always under the impression that Martha-Louise voluntarly gave up her title because she wanted to lead a life outside of the royal family.

She did. According to wikipedia, she gave up the title in order to be able to work more freely. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes...uise_of_Norway

Märtha Louise gave up her style so that she could work, but she would have lost it anyway upon her marriage to Ari Behn.

That's kind of sexist for such a "forward" country like Norway, don't you think?, in Britain and Spain the Monarch's daughters didn't lose their HRH status for marrying commoners and they are two of the most traditional monarchies in Europe so i'm kind of curious about that:)

I believe it was her choice to renounce "HRH". And I've never heard that she would have lost her title upon marrying Ari.

It's been fairly common in Norway that females take their husband's last name when they marry. (There are also some males who take their wife's last name, in recent years.)

Märtha Louise renounced her HRH before the wedding, so that she could be able to work, and pay tax of her earnings.

The point is that her aunts, Princess Ragnhild and Princess Astrid were in the same situation as Märtha Louise upon their marriage - they also married commoners, and thus they lost the HRH, but King Haakon and King Olav decided that their style wouldn't be Mrs. Lorentzen and Mrs. Ferner as would have been normal. As they were princesses, their names became Princess Ragnhild, Mrs. Lorentzen and Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner. Princess Märtha Louise just decided to not adopt Ari's last name upon the marriage.

Norway's Royal Family Under Guard

NewsTrack - Top News

Norway royal family under guard

OSLO, Norway, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Security has been beefed up around the Norwegian royal family after a series of threats raised fears of an assassination attempt.
Authorities said they were guarding against an attack on the family, especially female members. At least 14 people were reported dangerously obsessed with Princess Martha Louise.
The newspaper Dagbladet said threats against the royals have escalated recently.
The most concrete threats have been directed against Princess Martha Louise, Aftenposten reported. But, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Queen Sonja are also believed to be targets of possible attacks.
An alleged plot to kidnap Crown Prince Haakon several years ago was reported in late October.

I think is horrible. If you are against the monarchy, that's fine. But don't take out your issues on people who have really no control over that situation especially children. That's not cool, to put it lightly. I hope the police works extra hard to find the people responsible for this state of affairs.

I think that's a shame! I hope they'll protect the RF from those people...
I wonder what's the problem of these guys. I mean if they were against the monarchy I would think that they planned attacks against the male members. Of course I don't hope so!) What's their problem with the female Royals and especially Märtha? I'm quite shocked.

Males obsessed with Princesses

Incidentally we have had a similar case in the Netherlands, this week:


According to Thursday's Algemeen Dagblad, a man was summoned before the Court of Justice in The Hague, for threathening against life.

Via the European alarm-number 112 the man threathened "to blow a bullet through the heads of the little Princesses" (Princess Catharina-Amalia and Princess Alexia).

The alarmcentrale took the threat very serious and immediately informed the royal family. A member of staff working for the family laid down a complaint. The 35-years old Amsterdamer told the Court of Justice he actually 'cherished warm feelings for Máxima'. The Court of Justice ordered an extended psychiatric report about the man. After this, the case will be continued in Court.

Either the crazies are getting more vocal and getting caught faster or those around several RFs feel its better to reveal these threats publicly.

In the last year, threats against the British, Norway, Denmark, Jordan, Monaco and Greek RFs have come to light (though some of them were about plots/attempts years old).

I was not aware of threats made directly against the Danish royals. I know there have been a couple of security concerns regarding possible terrorist acts around royal residences (Amalienborg the most notable), but nothing which specifically named a member of the family they (whoever they are) intended to harm

Poor Martha-Louise. How frightening this must be. And for Mette-Marit and Sonja aswell. There are some real whackjobs out there!
