A newest poll shows that King Harald is on top of it: 91% believe he does a good job, only 1% believe that he is doing a bad job. Queen Sonja gets 80%, CP Haakon 85% and CP Mette-Marit 63%.

75% believe that King Harald should not abdicate, while 13% say that CP Haakon should take over.


16% percent believe the Princess Märtha Louise does a good job, while 36% believe she does a bad job as a representative of the Royal House. Her husband Ari Behn gets 72% of respondents who think he is doing a bad job.
Royal expert Kjell Arne Totland thinks this has a natural explanation. 'Measurements like this are really always very unfair to the couple Behn. The two are part of the extended royal family, but they are not considered as part of what is often referred to as The Royal Family.'

1138 people were asked by polling institute Ipsos MMI.

thank you fairy tale

Im not sure how serious the poll is,
but looking at the #s for the cp couple, there is a huge difference,
85% compared to 63% for MM

When you compare the numbers with last year's MMI poll, they went a very little down for King and Queen, a little bit more for CP Haakon and quite much for CP Mette-Marit. The Behns, well...I think everybody can imagine why.

I also don't know how representative this poll is, at least they give us the number how many people were asked.

Comparison 2012 - 2013 (doing a good job for Norway):
King Harald: 93% - 91%
Queen Sonja: 81% - 80%
CP Haakon: 89% - 85%
CP Mette-Marit: 75% - 63%
Princess Märtha Louise: 25% - 16%

Ari Behn: 57% that he does a bad job - 72%

Im not quite familiar with the Norwegian Royal Family, but as far as I have seen those Behns are not very well liked, I am aware of the strange attitudes of the Princess, but I just don't have enough information to understand why her husband is stongly rejected. Could anyone be so kind as to explain this?

In a recent survey 67 percent are responding that the current royal family makes a very or fairly good job. The King is as usual the most popular.
As many as 40 percent of respondents believes that King Harald does the best job of royalty, while 21 percent answered Crown Prince Haakon in the survey undertaken by Ipsos MMI for the newspaper Dagbladet.
Queen Sonja gets thumbs up from 9 percent of those surveyed, while Crown Princess Mette-Marit only get 5 percent.
King Harald become the most liked by those over 40 years, while the age group 18-39 years like Prince Haakon best.
In the survey, said 30 percent that the royal family does a very good job, and 37 percent said they think the royals are doing a pretty good job.
King Harald is the people's favorite

Learning from Sweden, do not think so. Johan T. Lindwall, royal reporter for the Swedish newspaper Expressen, is in my opinion a joke of a journalist. Crown Prince Haakon is as popular in Norway as Crown Princess Victoria is in Sweden. Lindwall says Victoria always come out much better than Carl XVI Gustaf in the Swedish polls. I dont think it will be hard to be more popular than Carl Gustaf.

A rather ridiculous poll if you ask me. Who does the best job, they should have asked is he, here doing a good job. Dagbladet is a republican newspaper, a newspaper most people in Norway is laughing of.

In another thread, there were several mentions that the CP couple are disliked in their country. Does anyone have any information on this? The last post here is from a few years ago, and although their ratings aren't stellar, it doesn't come across as actually disliked.
Has something changed?

In which thread?
And yes, their reputation is IMO (and in the opinion of several Norwegian pro-monarchy commentators/experts) totally broken, but ''disliked'' is a very strong word, I think.

Perhaps you should check out the ''Norway: Republic or monarchy?'' thread, where I've written a great deal about it (especially from post 105 to 140).

If you don't have the time to go through it all, then you will find much information in these two posts:
Norway: Republic or monarchy?

BTW, be aware that I suffer from dyslexia, so my writing in those long posts is not the best, but my English writing is better than it was pre 2017.
