Gotcha!

How lucky are you to have places where you can read all about European Royals with any degree of regularity!

Good naturedly, I envy you.

Cool

Rolf was a very good looking gentleman. What was his profession? That's too bad for the Princess and her family.

His career before retirement was a head engineer at a factory, and later he had his own consultancy. Later he has been the head of a work training centre in Kristiansand - a foundation where former substance-abusers who wants to get help to rehabilitate themselves. He has also been the head of the Norwegian association for people who have had heart or lung transplants (he had a heart transplant in the 90s)

Everybody VG talked to mentioned that he never talked about Mette-Marit, or the royals, in public, and that he was known for his discretion. Tung tid for Mette-Marit - VG Nett

Was he only a stepfather or a good friend for Mette-Marit? I am shocked about that news. I couldn't imagine how it have to feel loosing two fathers between one year. Let us hope that they are strong enough to handle this terrible happening.

He sounds like the kind of father one can truly be proud of. I am probably going to get a lot of flack for saying this, but, well, now she has a reason to wear all black.
