Thanks! You are so right! I most often check the major newspapers and tv-stations for royal news. I keep forgetting about the royal family web-page:o

I do the same thing, though whenever I hear some stories that I want to have confirmed: I go to the Royal webpage. Like this, or the pregnancies...

During the time of the King's illness Princess Astrid has been asked to step in on a few of the assignments, so that they don't have to be cancelled. She told the press that it was always nice to be asked, and to be able to help.

She visited Haraldsheim Vandrerhjem, where she opened the first special "King's Room" that all the youth hostels in Norway are supposed to have...

But anybody know why Princess Astrid not oftenly take the engagements anymore?I think the Norwegian Royal does not have many members undertake the engagements.Only: the King and the Queen,the Crown Princely couple and Princess Martha Louise.Maybe she avoids the lime light,but i think she should think of the duty,and sharing the work with the family.I do not agree with the idea that she only helps when they ask,so if they don't ask,she also does not help!I don't want to contrast but i see the British Royal is very hard working,their visits always full.You can see the late Princess Margaret in her ill time,she always undertook some visits.
Maybe Princess Astrid does not need to undertake so many engagements,but i mean maybe she can have one or two engagements a month is better.

The Princess does not only do thngs when she is asked, she has several engagements, thought they are usually rather low key. Princess Astrids engagements usually goes unnoticed by the Norwegian press, she had an engagement last week in Oslo and I have not seen one photo of it. The Princess also had (has?) trouble with her legs and is not a young woman anylonger.

She still often accompanies her brother to sports arrangements in Oslo and she is also involved with people who are dyslexic, and who have Downs Syndrom. Princess Astrid also takes part in some of the engagements that we rarely gets to see pictures of like from lunches at the palace, and she has taken part in almost all the statevisits in Norway, and she is also present for most of the gala dinners. She also sometimes goes to funerals abroad like Prince Carl Bernadotte, Count Flemming of Rosenborg and The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.

Today the Princess visited Bæreia for a garden party, here the Princess greeted war veterans. The reason for the visit was the the norwegian association for heart and lung desease has taken over the center, previously run by a organsisation for war veterans.

I don't think Astrid ever has done an interview to that effect - Ragnhild on the other hand did a rather famous interview on television a few years back saying something to that effect.
