Dronningen - Biography about Queen Sonja

I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere, or if it belongs somewhere besides current events (mods please move if necessary ). Sonja's official biography was released today, and there are lots of articles online about it. It looks like she's been very open.

General summary:

About Martha Louise:

About her sister, who committed suicide in 1970, and Sonja's miscarriage shortly afterwards:

About her first meeting with Mette-Marit:

Thanks for sharing. It's quite touching and sad to read about her sister's death and the misscarriages...

I know, I thought that article was so sad. What horrible timing to have both events so close.

Sonja's mother must have been a very strong woman - 2 of her 4 children died before her, but she never seemed like a sad or bitter person. Quite the contrary, in fact.
