I think Mette Marit has done a wonderful job as Crown Princess since her marriage.

Most of us have things in our past we would not want splashed all over the media and thankfully most of us will never have to suffer that. What matters is how someone moves on with their life and the person they become as they get older and I believe that MM has done this superbly. She is obviously very much in love with her husband and children and also represents Norway wonderfully in her public role.

I agree. Everyone deserves a second chance in life. Mette-Marit took the chance to the positive. It is wonderful to see how she has grown into her role. She definitely had the most fights to win compared to the other married crown princesses. She proved to be a worthy representative of her country. Well done, crown princess. I hope she and Hakoon will throw a big anniversary wedding party next year and let us be part of it with lots of official events and pictures.

The past is the past. She is lovely and does a good job. You know the saying ,"He who is without sin.......". I am glad she was able to turn her life around.

I admit that I don't like her past a bit. Being a traditionalist myself, I would have liked another CRwonprincesse for Prince Haakon. But of course I don't have any right to deny her all the possibilities to undertake a new life. If we doesn't let her try...How could she do it? I also admit that I've nothing to say about her since she married Haakon. It's easy to say that she loves her husband and children and that's perfect.

Of course, I have some complains about Royal's lifes and interest and jobs these last 15 years. But I now think it is not their fault. At least, not completely. They does what they can. No more , no less. No one ignores that there are strong international phynancial powers what are commanding even politicians, who are supposed to have some little power to undertake their job as presidents, deputies, etc...And they are not allowed to. So, just imagine what happens to Royals that doesn't have any political power, either! If things are not going like we should likes them to, are not entirely by Royals or politicians faults. So, our criticizing wouldn't be adressed to them.

But this is another issue and Mette Marit has nothing to do to with it. She is a good Crownprincesse for the times we are living in.

Vanesa.

I think she's great! She always comes across as so genuine. They are evidently a couple in love and have adorable, happy children. So she went to parties, took some drugs and had some sex.... Me too! But now I've grown out of that, just as she did, and MILLIONS of other people (lawyers, journalists, firefighters, nurses) are the same. It's called growing up. Yes. she has a child, but he appears to be a mature, clever, balanced young man.... so where's the problem? The past is the past. Leave it there!

Or shall we return to trading 13 year old virgins and gold?

Monarchy in general is suposse to has special rules, but is no true. Mette Marit is a clear example. She had very many activities in the past, and now She is a Crown Princess.All is right.

We ALL make mistakes some worse than others, and she, like any of us, deserves a second chance. I admire her, and didn't before, but I see how she is with her children and how much she loves her husband. The past is in the past--you can't change it, but you can learn from your mistakes and try to never make the same mistake...

May I remind you how LONG her "past" is ago?! This discussion is totally outdated and the CP has proven over and over again the past 10 years, that she´s a great and proper royal (even more than some born royals that cross my mind...)!

An article about the "Man from Lillestrøm". He was the boyfriend of Mette-Marit, and wanted to sold pictures and videos about Mette-Marit:
- Kan aldri glemme Mette-Marit | rb.no
Google Fordító

I see now, that this theme has an own thread:
An Ex of Mette-Marit to write a book on their relationship

Ten years on and this is still a topic for articles and discussion?

Im not going to bother reading it. It is her current work and contribution that matters.

I totally agree Cepe. Why dig up an old thread to discuss the past of a oerson who has now been happily married for 12 years and does her job well as CP of Norway? What is the point? It is not new or news.

You shouldn't discuss, read and hear it, but this is her past and will be remain it forever. I didn't post it to insult you or your feelings (or Mette-Marit's), but I think there are many peolpe who are interested on Mette-Marit with her past, present and future. Because of her past is she today, who she is, how we know her.

Its not like you are adding anything new to a discussion that was out of date even when this thread was started so I guess I just do not see what point you are trying to make.

Nothing special, I found an article and I posted it. I think this is the sense of this forum.

Seems like this ex-boyfriend is doing this for montetary gain or maybe he is jealous of Mette-Marit life. Maybe he wants some attention. Who really cares that Mette-Marit dated so and so years ago.

You never hear about ex-girlfriends or their family members writing books about male royals nor do you hear about family members of the ex-girlfriend writing a book about the relationship that their family member had with male royal A or B. I never seen or heard of such a book and I doubt it exists. Seems to be some unwritten rule that you don't do this. No one crosses this or they have enough respect for this person that they don't do this.

The same is not true about non-royals (females) who marry into royalty.

It is just that, her "past". Let it go. She is lovely and doing a great job. She wasn't Haakon mistress when he was married to someone else, she is, always, trying to improve herself and a hard worker. Leave her alone.
