Ok, will Fred marry Mary, or won&#39;t he? They have been dating for two years; she&#39;s moved over there and yet no sign of a wedding. What&#39;s really going on? Any speculations?? Is Mary just "entertainment"?

I don&#39;t feel that one couple is more affectionate than the other. I have always felt that Haakon and Mette-Marit are an absolutely refreshing couple and I have always been impressed by their affection and attention towards each other and the way in which they are so openly affectionate. They honestly have a crush on one another and they don&#39;t hide it. I think that their love for one another is extremely sincere.

Would Somebody please translate this article from www.vgnett.no

Lader opp til dåp på Bloksberg

Av STIG TORE LAUGEN og VIDAR TANGERUD (foto)

HANKØ/MÅGERØ (VG) Sent i går kveld ankom prinsesse Märtha Louise, Ari Behn og Maud Angelica landstedet Bloksberg på Hankø.

På det idylliske landstedet som eies av prinsessen, skal den lille familien lade opp til onsdagens barnedåp i Slottskapellet.

Foreløpig er ikke gjestelisten kjent, men etter det VG har grunn til å tro, vil det ikke komme «store» navn fra andre europeiske kongehus. Mest trolig vil alle gudforeldre og faddere være norske.

Märtha, Ari og Maud Angelica kom til Hankø ved 22-tiden i går kveld i prinsessens egen Audi stasjonsvogn. Ari Behn satt bak rattet, mens den nybakte mor satt i baksetet sammen med Maud Angelica - som var trygt plassert i en svart babybag.

Både foran og bak kjørte livvakter fra Den kongelige politieskorte.

Mye utstyr

Med seg hadde den lille familien mye utstyr - deriblant en stor, hvit badebalje. Mens Ari tok mesteparten av bagasjen, sørget Märtha for å få med seg den mest verdifulle lasten - Maud Angelica - da de gikk om bord i passasjerfergen «Hankø» som tok dem det siste stykket ut til Bloksberg. På den sene kveldsturen var følget de eneste passasjerene.

Prinsessen, Ari Behn og Maud Angelica kom fra Mågerø på Tjøme hvor de har vært sammen med dronning Sonja på kongeparets landsted.

- Jeg har Maud Angelica boende hos meg nå, og det er veldig hyggelig, sa dronning Sonja til VG da hun i går besøkte Hudøy feriekoloni - som ligger i nærheten av Mågerø.

Prinsessen og Ari Behn har så å si ikke vist seg offentlig i det hele tatt etter at Maud Angelica tirsdag 29. april kom til verden på Rikshospitalet.

Here you go, Mandy&#33;

"Loading up for the Christening at Bloksberg"

Princess Märtha Louise, Ari Behn and Maud Angelica arrived late last night at the country home Bloksberg in Hankø.

At the idyllic estate, that is owned by the Princess, shall the little family rest and prepare for Wednesdays christening in the castle chapel.

For the time being the guest list is not know, but VG has reason to believe, there will not be any big names from other european royal houses. Most likely all of the godparents and sponsors will be Norwegian.

Märtha, Ari and Maud Angelica came to Hankø around ten last night in the Princesses own Audi stationwagon. Ari Behn sat back resting, while the new mother sat in the backseat together with Maud Angelica, who was sercurely placed in a black baby seat.



Both ahead and behind drove body guards from the royal police escort.


The little family had with them a lot of equipement, among those a large, white bath basin. While Ari took the majority of the luggage, Märtha attended to the most valuable cargo, Maud Angelica, when they went on board the passenger ferry "Hankø" that took them the final distance out to Bloksberg. They were the only passengers on the late night journey.

The Princess, Ari Behn, and Maud Angelica came from Mågerø at Tjøme where they had been together with Queen Sonja at the royal couples estate.

"I have Maud Angelica staying at my house now, and it is very pleasant," said Queen Sonja to VG when she visited Hudøy summercamp near Mågerø yesterday.

The Princess and Ari Behn have thus to make an official appearance at all since Maud Angelica was born at Rikshospital on Tuesday, April 29th.

It&#39;s always a pleasure to look at pictures of Princess Martha Louise. I wonder why that is since usually with most people if you&#39;ve seen pictures of them once, that is enough and more is redundant. What is it about Princess Martha Louise that makes her so infinitely interesting?

Another one off the top of my head is Queen Paola of Belgium. I wonder if it has something to do with ones ability to totally disengage from posing for some camera so that their true self shows?

Hello thissal,

Here is an article from www.aftenposten.no dated August 5, 2001 that I believe may explain some of your questions about Märtha Louise.

Princess impresses literary VIPs

Princess Märtha Louise brought a smile to the faces of visitors at the opening of the normally sombre Bjørnsonfestivalen literary festival in Molde on Sunday with an amusing account of why the royals are rarely seen wearing crowns.

The Princess arrived in rainy Molde aboard a Braathens plane and was greeted with the pomp and ceremony expected for a member of the royal family. Märtha Louise was to lead the opening ceremony of a literary festival built upon themes of freedom of speech and human rights.
Festival president Knut Ødegård welcomed the assembly with a biting criticism of international oil concerns and other organisations bent on destabilising the situation in Macedonia.
But before gravity could fully take over, Princess Märtha Louise enchanted the gathering and lightened the atmosphere with a tale of why members of the Norwegian royal family do not wear their crowns, but keep them safe and sound instead in Trondheim Nidarosdomen cathedral.
Gratifying to witness, said commentators afterwards, that the one person expected to be surrounded with most pomposity was in fact the least pretentious.

I think that does explain it -- something about the ability to let ones true self shine through despite all the expectations that come with being in the royal spotlight. I suspect this might come from not allowing their royal status and image to become their top priority -- so that it&#39;s not overwhelming.

Of course this is very hard to do and I guess it would take quite a bit of royal experience and maturity to put the world and life into such a perspective.
