It's terrible what he does to her, and she tries so hard to do a good job as a royal. I just hope no one thinks less of her because of his actions. I think she's doing a great job. :flower:

mm she is not one of my favourite royals, but what her father does to her is quite dissapointing. she is having lots of difficulties to addapt to her new life and her father is doing that job even difficultier. too bad for mr. hoiby... it seems he doesn't really care for her daughter.

Wow. At least he seems to be enjoying himself...

Why does it look like he&#39;s signing autographs or something?

Embarassing Sven O. Hoiby

It seems that Mette-Marit's father is coming up with yet another way to embarass her and to get himself in the spotlight. Honestly, I think this many must lay awake at night coming up with ways to embarass his daughter.

But at least he's got a Norwegian flag in his hands ...

We feel so sorry for Mette-Marit that her dad screws up like this all the time! She isn't very popular, and we don't think that her dad's stupid behaviour will add any points!

Though we think it's stupid, we have to ask if anybody has any pictures of Sven O.'s girlfriend Cowboy-Laila???

It should be noted that she is not Mette-Marit's step-mother yet.

Is it just me or does anyone else find Sven O. Høiby to be a major attention seeker? Of all the days he could pick to make this little fact known that he is in a serious relationship and wants to marry this woman, he had to pick his granddaughter Ingrid Alexandra's first birthday?

He couldn't wait to make this announcement next week? I guess today it has the full impact what with everyone in good spirits about Ingrid Alexandra turning one and hey! her maternal grandfather is also planning on getting married!

I can see why Mette-Marit has distanced herself from her father all these years. I can't say I blame her.

It seems to me that he goes out of his way to do things that would embarrass Mette-Marit and the royal family. It's like it's some sort of game and he finds it funny. He is like one of those people who get a thrill out of shocking others. You would think that he would care enough about his dauther and grand-daughter to allow the day to be about Ingrid Alexandra. But instead, he has to come out with a little bit of a shocking and potentially embarrassing story. It's selfish and a bit silly if you ask me.

I can't blame Mette-Marit from distancing herself from him either.

He is kind of a laughing stock in Norway, actually! Nobody takes him seriously what so ever, and most people feel sorry for and imbarrased on behalf of CP Mette-Marit that have to struggle with such an immature father. He plays all kinds of silly stunts to get in the paper/magazines (at least I think so).

Needless to say he isn't particularly popular! He ought to see that he is in a very special situation due to his daughters position, and keep himself in the background and be a support for her instead of disrespecting her so much by his behavior. Her mother have done that (and I can understand why she divorced him!!), and is a tremendous help and support for CP Mette-Marit. At least that is what I think!

And for that marriage, I won't believe it until I see it!!

Oh no, he's at it again. I wonder if MM cringe everytime she opens to paper to find her father involved in his latest shenanigan. If I was her, I would just die.

KikkiB is right. Few in Norway take him seriously, and fewer will take him seriously if he indeed does marry her and makes a public spetacle out of it. I think I would have taken him far more seriously myself if he had married her quietly without much hoopla in the press beforehand. I get that the man is a journalist by trade, but really there is such a thing as too much press.

The perfect in-law of a royal is someone you don't see a lot of, or who doesn't make much of herself/himself. Mette-Marit's mother is one of them. I think breaking tradition to ask her to be the one non-royal godparent for the new heir to the throne is a good evidence of how good she is at it. She seems to have been there for Mette-Marit and Marius all the time, and also in recent years for Haakon and Ingrid Alexandra. They call her in to babysit when they go on longer journeys. I very much doubt they would call Svein O. in to do that.

He had the perfect opportunity after the wedding to redeem himself in his daughter's eyes, by not speaking out in the press which might've helped their relationship... I'm sure there are lots more behind that relationship that we will never know, but his attentionseeking has to be a big part of it.

No wonder why she doesnt want to talk to him! And that marriage; She is 34 years younger than him! After a year it will be over! Someone needs to make that man shut up!!
