It seems than it is a spriritual travel, not only because of the beauty of the region... But I ask me, what say the church in Norway for this trip. They can think if the future Queen of Norway has spiritual problems, than she should ask the priester at home and find a way in the christian teachings not in buddhist.
I hope she hasn't got very serious problems and make her job as CP forth...

This weekend's "Se og Hør"-cover shows a picture of her:http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._5652953_n.jpg (from: Se og Hør | Facebook)
The caption says: This week you can read all about Mette-Marit's secret trip to India. See the exclusive photos!

Can anybody scan these photos or it is forbidden?

Yes, I think also, that maybe she has some problems with her life... If you think about, she was a very free woman before her marriage, she was able to make, what she wanted and now her life is organised by the royal court, she is followed and criticized all the time. Can it be, that she can't familiar with this situation? OK, we know, Haakon and the children are everything for her, but aslo she said for many years, that she would like if Haakon not CP is... Can you imagine, that Haakon give up his status if MM ask him...?
But we know MM for a very strong person, if she has a problem, she will be solve it, I am sure.

Just because she is going on a trip to India alone? Don`t we all need some time alone from time to time?

Yes, but what she make it is a spiritual trip with a guru in little Tibet, not only because she want to be alone... If she want it, than she can make it otherwise and in an other place.

I don't see anything wrong with a trip like that either. It does not have to mean necessarily she's unhappy or whatever.
The parents of a close friend of mine made such "spritual" journeys twice or so, to relax and to clear their minds... and they are no Buddhists either. Actually they are just two hard working people (Christians btw.) who found a good way to wind down...
So maybe it's an experience MM also wanted to make. Furthermore if it's helping her to clear her mind I don't see a problem with it (as long as she returns and keeps on working ).

If MM went on a hiking/walking track journey and those places are in the area or on the way, why not visit them? Also, who knows, the guru might have planned a trip with MM but that doesn't mean MM is in the spiritual stuff.
What we read is only what the tabloids are writing to sell.

Maybe. ... and even if it IS a spiritual journey I don't think it's such a big deal.

BUNTE is not the most reliable source, so anything written there should be read with a pinch of salt.
MM has a very strong Christian faith and have been very open about it. She strikes me as a seeking person, so perhaps that is just was she is doing.

Wikimapia - Let's describe the whole world!

Very interesting... I am reading now about the life of Jesus, and I am surprised, because there is a theory, that Jesus was in India between his 12 and 30 years, and that he was in the monastary of Hemmis, where also MM visited...(!!) So if we see from this point of view, than maybe she wanted also only see, where Jesus was... Maybe... But it is only my theory... But I know of course that the Christian church don't belive that Jesus was in India, so they can't say, ok, MM wanted to see where Jesus lived...

I am surprised to learn that Crown Princess Mette-Marit decided to undertake a solo trip. Is this trip a part of her agenda? Does a protection detail accompany her?
