Princess Ragnhild lives in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and has done so for the past 50 years, at least.

More info can be found in the 1905-2005 Norwegian Monarchybiography of her.

He is not nobel, there is no nobility in Norway, He was a sort of war hero I suppose, part of the resistance movement in Norway during WW2 so he might have some medals related to that. He is a major employer in Brazil though, albeit not everything about his business is rosey rosey.

Last week Princess Ragnhild and her husband attended on Ullevåll stadium the soccergame between Norway and Brazil, the result was 1-1 and Norway is still the one country that has not lost to Brazil (impossible as it might sound ) they were accompanied by the President of the soccer confederation Sondre Kåfjord, the event did not appear on the royal agenda

Erling Lorentzen is in the news today. Apparently, he had an affair with a woman 35 years his junior 19-20 years ago. The affair was broken off when she said she was pregnant. He has been paying several milions in child-support all these years (both for childsupport and for her private education at an English boarding school), to avoid huge scandals for his wife's sake, but has also pressed for DNA testing. Now it seems that finally a DNA test has proven that the child isn't his, and he's taken steps to have the parental records deleted. He'll still continue to support the child. He says he's sorry for the pain he's caused his family and wife, and he's got compassion for the child who has been deliberately misled into believing that he is her father.

Princess Ragnhild has apparently known about this for a long time, and right now is angry about the "other woman" doing things that seems like blackmail.

Both of them talked to Se & Hør about it.

The above is a translated summary from: http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=131830

Sorry to say it, but to me princess Ragnhild does not behave very royal in these years. First she denigrate Mette-Marit for not beeing god for the monarchy and now she talks openly about her husband's affair in the most dirty and low class 'magazine' of Norway. To me a real royal is someone who bears her burden in silence and with her head upright. Who is able to shake hands with the persons she dislikes without letting no one know about her feelings. Such a royal person was the late Queen Ingrid and the present Queen of England but I do not see much of them in princess Ragnhild!

Please your royal highness - for the future let the hate stay inside your home...

I don't know - Se & Hør in Norway is infinitely more credible and less trashy than its Danish counterpart, to me, at least, though it's gotten more trashy in the past years. I can think of several more low-class magazines to talk in, to put it like that. And it is such a story, really that it isn't anything that the magazines that are turned towards traditional housewives, ie. Hjemmet, Familien, Norsk Ukeblad (those magazines with recipes, embroidery patterns and such things) would be interested in. Princess Ragnhild's official biography was published on Se & Hør's publishing company back in '95, if I remember correctly, and I guess they've chosen to continue the collaborations.

I guess that since he was taking legal action, they thought it best to get it out there now, before it turned into a huge spetacle of speculations in the media.

Well - I don't know much about norwegian magazines... I just tried to point out that a royal is not supposed to smalltalk to the press about family affairs ect. Prince Henrik was widely criticized by the danish people when he told the press that he was not content with beeing nr. 3 in the family after his wife the Queen and his son the heir. People felt that it was a strange thing to make trouble in the family i front of the public.

A good example of what I will call 'Royal behavior' was in 1967 when the danish gouverment forbade the King and Queen to invite their daughter and son in law - the King and Queen of Greece - to the wedding of princess Margrethe (II). Instead of showing her hurt feelings in public or having an argument with the primeminister Queen Ingrid silent placed framed photes of Anne-Marie and Constantine all over the palace before the official banquet. An elegant way to show her sympathy without to lose her face in a public scandal...

A very sad story, especially for the girl involved. But at least the marriage of Erling and Ragnhild survived dispite of it, good for them! I wonder if they can sue the mother to get te money back...

I am getting up to speed now. I saw refrences to this child of Ragnhild's husband in the Astrid and Harald birthday threads, and I had to check back here to get some back history.

My questions/comment is this....he had paid child support for how many years before getting his DNA test? Why didn't he do it or get it done earlier?

I also agree that Ragnhild has been quite "mean" to Ari and Mette Marit about their standing in the royal family and her husband does this? And by "mean" I am referring to the comments she made about Ari and Mette Marit being totally unsuitable to be members of the Norwegian Royal Family.
