Thanks polyesco!

The Literature Trip uses to be criticized every time - I hope this doesn't happen this time.

After the King/Queen's 80th birthday celebrations, the Crown Prince couple have had a pretty good period without any criticism in the media. Not even Global Dignity has been criticized, and experts have said that we must give them a chance.
The Queen is the most wonderful, forgiving, non judgmental person I know. Sarah Ferguson speaking in 2011.

This again has to do with the Law of Jante, which I wrote about in the Republic/Monarchy thread.

Experts/commentators (and I would say the vast majority of Norwegians) believe that she and Haakon should do as the King/Queen used to do when they were younger and travel around the country, make visits/openings to/of hospitals, schools, factories, tunnels, bridges and naming of ships etc.

People (whether it's right or wrong) don't like that they are interfering/meddling in other things.

Also authors have criticized her - this is from last year:
Crown Princess Mette-Marit is pleased with this year's literature journey and hopes it will contribute to debate. At the same time as she finishes this year's literary journey with author meetings along the Bergen track, she receives criticism from author Birger Emanuelsen.

''I can not see what the Crown Princess is going to give to Norwegian literature. However, I see very well what Norwegian literature and Norwegian writers are going to give to her. A much-needed image'', Emanuelsen writes on his Facebook page.

He criticizes the Literature journey for not doing anything for Norwegian literature?
But as I said in my above post, she has not received any criticism this time.

I saw her on the television news now tonight, and as usual she looked uncomfortable when she was interviewed by the press.

What has been the criticism of the literature trip? It seems very benign and very much in the vein of what royals have traditionally done.
