Olav V was the next king, but without a Queen as Princess Märtha already had died in 1954. His daughter Ragnhild had married a Norwegian commoner in 1953. Princess Astrid acted as the first lady until her marriage in 1961. Crown Prince Harald met Sonja Haraldsen in 1959 and although they fell in love they knew it wouldn't be accepted. In 1964 the relationship was discovered but denied by the royal court. Finally in 1968, after the crown prince had threatened to give up his rights to the throne as he wouldn't marry anybody else but Sonja, King Olav V tacked and the engagement was announced. Later that year the couple married and they got two children: Märtha Louise (1971) and Haakon (1973). After a few illnesses King Olav V died in 1991. The new king was Harald V, and for the first time since 1938 Norway had a Queen again.

Does anybody know where I can find more information and pictures of Princess Märtha ?

She must have been some-one special if the Americans are going to raise a bronze sculpture of her.

Picture of Queen Maud of Norway (center) with Crown Prince Olav and Crown Princess Märtha at the Coronation ceremony at Buckingham Palace 1937.
Queen Maud is wearing her robes as a Princess of Great Britain. She also wears the base of the crown which had belonged to her mother Queen Alexandra.

I like the picture of Queen Maud and her son Olav reading a book.

It reminds me of Mother and I looking at a book.
