Princess Mette-Marit has written the preface of a book which tells the 'coming out' stories of various Norwegians. It's purpose is discussing tolerance and understanding of homosexuals. The book is sponsored by the Ministry of Children and Equality. She writes : “I hope that this book will create discussion and reflection about how important it is to be allowed to be a whole human being, and how we can help each other to become just that.”

Wonderful! I really admire the work that Mette-Marit has done in helping to teach tolerance and understanding. I would love to read her introduction. I think it's great that she is working to combat homophobia.

MM obviously feels very passionately about this as this is not the first thing she has done in relation to this area. Well done to her for encouraging more tolerance regarding homosexuality.

One of the things I love about MM is that she when she genuinely believes in something she seems to do more than the token gesture of turning up, smiling and getting her photo taken at an event.

yes, it's quite nice that her, just like maxima, are involved in homosexual equality rights. i'm glad MM is helping promote the book.

Nice outfit, I like her dress and jacket also, nice colors. I wonder that she is so selfconfident. And I like the job what she makes. Other princess are to me a little bit superficial in their job. But I think MM makes it "with heart and soul".

And their wedding anniversary is on 25. August, not today or yesterday.

I agree with you she does come across as "heart and soul "
