The King and Queen defends the Crown Prince couple's luxury yacht vacation
King Harald and Queen Sonja talked about the Crown Prince couple's luxury yacht vacation in an interview with NRK.
In an interview with NRK, King Harald said that the family must be able to protect friends who have not sought the limelight.
- This was a person who invited the Crown Prince Family on a trip that he (the person) would be involved in, says the King in the interview. Queen Sonja says this person owned the boat.
The King continues:
We must sometimes protect our friends which will not necessarily be in the spotlight.
Queen Sonja adds:
I think it is a principle here and that is that we must be allowed sometimes, we also, to be private and be ourselves.
The King and Queen also said that they didn't know who this person was.
The Queen is the most wonderful, forgiving, non judgmental person I know. Sarah Ferguson speaking in 2011.
