I'll never understand why royals are so fascinated with celebrities. All well and good to be entertained, but it's as if they bypass ordinary people who have solid honest jobs and prefer people who sell themselves, just because they have a lot of money. As if in fact mney makes a person much better.

Why not socialize with the aristocrats, business people, or people who work at their charities where they are patrons? Mette Marit has more than enough time to jet set to London and spend more time at a party than with entertainers than they do with one engagement. The royals are just being used for social kudos/cachet and it's just degrading to see so much priority given to entertainers, when people who are hard workers are just given attention long enough to count as an engagement.

It's a shame mainly because a lot of the charity workers would be a lot more giving and a lot better influence.

I do not know about Mette Marit, but I read several books about Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, and a lot of times (please correct me if I am wrong!) it seems neither she nor her husband has any "control" over who they meet. Or maybe I am just jealous that I haven't met the Queen yet LOL!!!!!

Newspapers print pictures of royals with celebrities. You only see what they choose to show you, so don't assume that royals do not spend time with other people.

In the Uk the royals do not always make public their visits to their charities and patronages. These are private visits, but the UK press don't like it and say that they are "secret" as if they have done something wrong.

Princess Charlene with former wrestler and current George Clooney girlfriend, Stacy Keibler (though I hardly would call Stacy a celebrity).
