Crown Princess Mette-Marit diagnosed with chronic lung disease: October 2018

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit has been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease that, in periods, could limit the exercise of her official program.

Kronprinsessens helsetilstand - kongehuset.no

"For a number of years, I have had health challenges on a regular basis, and now we know more about what these are in. The condition means that the working capacity will vary. The Crown Prince and I choose to inform about this now, partly because in future there will be a need to plan periods without official program. In connection with treatment and when the disease is more active, this will be necessary, says the Crown Princess.
"Although such a diagnosis in times will limit my life, I'm glad that the disease has been discovered so early. My goal is still to work and participate in the official program as much as possible, says the Crown Princess.

Such sad news.
Sad and very serious.
Chronic pulmonary fibrosis is a dilapidating disease that put many of those affected by it in an early grave.

Sad news. I hope everything go well for the Crown Princess.

And the Prime Minister Erna Solberg releases a statement:

“Today, I send warm thoughts to Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Now it is important that the Crown Princess receives good treatment, is closely followed up and receives much care”.

I hope for her that she gets the best treatment. And it is also my wish that she will feel soon better.

That's sad to hear and a real, very difficult challenge for Mette-Marit's future life.

At least it's finally clarified what the cause of her illnesses is, so she can get the best and exactly fitting treatment and she can bring her life and duties in line with her condition and level of energy.

I think we all wish her all the very best!

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department of the Swedish Royal Court, said to Svensk Damtidning:
- The Swedish royal family is informed of this. Otherwise, we don't comment.

A very hard message for the family but it might in some way also be a relieve that they understand better what is going on. I hope they will be able to slow down the disease although it seems to depend on the type/cause whether this is expected to be possible. Wishing Mette Marit and her dear ones all the best in these times.

That’s incredibly sad news. If I understand the translation of the statement correctly, they’re saying she has an unusual, slowly progressing variant of pulmonary fibrosis. I can only hope for her sake that it is very unusual and very slow to progress. Regardless, getting this diagnosis at such a young age is incredibly sad.
I’m sure she’ll receive the very best care and have a ton of love and support from her family and friends.

It is my understanding that there is no cure, they can only try to slow it down and treat symptoms. The only permanent solution is a lung transplant.

Sending good thought to Mette-Marit and the whole family.

Yes. Only a 3-5 years survival rate once it diagnosed. Very sad news.

Sending Prayers to Matte-Marit, Her Family and The Norwegian Royal Family. Hoping she will be able to beat the odds!

I was shocked when I saw the news when I got home.

3-5 years at that age is so sad. Sounds like caught early, and hopefully treatment will progress and she may get longer.

At least they know what is wrong and can both get her treatment and also alter her duties to help her with stress and health.

My thoughts and prayers with her and her family

That is indeed very sad. I read that being female and under 50 are indications for a longer life expectancy but of course we don't (and shouldn't) know all the details of her specific case (and it is even for the doctor's who know the details hard to make predictions). It must be incredibly hard for the whole family.

Such sad news for the Crown Princess and her family. If the life expectancy for this disease is 3-5 years, and her younger children are only 14 and 12, then it's possible Mette-Marit will barely make it to see them into adulthood. I will be crossing my fingers and hoping that she beats the odds.
