Despite entering her sixth month of pregnancy, Princess Martha Louise shows no sign of slowing down. The Norwegian royal spent a busy afternoon signing copies of her recently published fairy tale for fans at the local library in Baerum, Norway.
The mother of one has enjoyed a successful career as a storyteller. Her latest book, entitled Why the Royals Don't Wear A Crown
, was released in November and tells the tale of a little crown prince who, like her grandfather, takes the name Olav and becomes king.
Martha Louise, her husband Ari Behn and their young daughter Maud Angelica are home for the holidays from New York. They have been living in the Big Apple since October while waiting for the renovations on their own suburban Oslo home to conclude.
The princess is looking forward to celebrating a family Christmas with King Harald
and Queen Sonja. This year, Crown Prince Haakon
will host the royals for the traditional Christmas Eve festivities on their estate.
