I hope that the monarchy is not undermined because of this controversy.

Long live the monarchy.

No, the popularity of the monarchy is very strong here. There are not many who take this book or per sanberg very seriously.

I admit I´m very happy about the humanitarian (and that´s in fact what it is, it´s NOT party political) work and principles of Haakon and Mette-Marit!
I think a monarchy who just opens hospital wings and cuts ribbons serves no cause and is without substance.
I agree there is a very thin line. But this line has never been crossed, and both H and MM seem to be very sensibel about that.
Of course they never should support a certain party, but they never did that.
The role itself (especially as a monarch - or president of a republic) is a leading one. You can´t lead by being neutral about everything!
If they don´t want a leader at all, the role of head of state must be abolished altogether, no matter royal or republican. Also republican presidents whithout political power speak their minds from time to time. It is even expected of them!

This is spreading in Twitter quite fast:
Say no to the monarchy tomorrow: Bring the kids in protest past the castle and let's wave goodbye to the king
Si nei til monarkiet i morgen Ta med barna i protesttog forbi slottet og la oss vinke farvel til kongen

The nrk poll shows record high support, the vg poll is usually between 60 and 70%. Vg has been very critical of Mette Marits spending and Haakons birthday party, but has stated that they suport the monarchy.

What was wrong in their opinion with Haakons very modest birthday party?!

Indeed.

If this is considered a major threat to the monarchy, the I think the NRF won't be abolished anytime soon!

The usual, some people talk a minor issue way up, and the media are happy to use the most dramatic headlines possible...

I have always supported the Crown Prince and Crown Princess, but now I'm starting to get worried. Several politicians in the parliament now believe that this is the beginning of the end for the Norwegian monarchy. This may seem strange to foreigners, but in Norway we are very keen that the royal family should be like us.

It´s the CP and the CPss own decision and prerogative, like any other parents, to decide where their children attend school!
It´s an outrageous thing of this man to comment on things who are none of his business!

Yes, you are absolute right.
I really don't understand what is the problem with this choice. Other parents can free choose what of schools their kids attend. If they are wealthy, they choose privat schools, nothing have problem with it.
Only, because MM and Haakon are royals they can't make own decisions???
And I think, they didn't make a bad decisions. For IA will be very important to meet children from other country, from other international background. And for Sverre - who I think need more attention as others - will be this Montessori school the best choice.

The Prime Minister spoke about it during her annual press conference.

Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg has pledged not to send her two teenage children to private schools, a day after Norway's Crown Prince and Princess revealed that their two children would be attending fee-paying schools in Oslo.

I agree, but many here in Norway do not.
