We obviously do not know the in's and out's of this but Sven was obviously a decent man at one stage, I mean her mum seems sensible and they had children together.

Maybe Sven feels Mette-Marit did not involve him enough, or maybe she said something to him that hurt or annoyed him.

I don't know, maybe because I know my dad would never do this to me I am clutching at straws as to why a father would do this. Especially as she is now a Princess, you would think he would be over the moon and proud. Instead he is just acting silly.

That's true! If Sven have any dignity left he shall keep quiet ahead.

I’m not the right person translating all of her speach from Norweagian language, to Swedish further to English. But I can try with a small poem MM:s Mother read to her daughter. (If I’m totally wrong I please ask You people from Norway to help me right).



Å være stor, av Tove Houck

Det er ikke beundringsverdige gjerninger som gjør deg til et stort menneske.

Gjerningene er som oftest bare et uttrykk for evnene livet har gitt deg.

Men kjærligheten som varmer gjerningene dine,

godheten som smiler i hendene sine,

viser hvor stor du virkelig er.




To be (a) great (human being), by Tove Houck

It isn’t admirable acts that makes You to a great human being.

Acts often only are expressions of tasks (gifts?) life have given You.

But the love warmig Your acts,

the goodness You shines smileing (into?) out of the hands of Yours,

shows us how great You realy are.

I've translated Marit Tjessem's wedding speech: Royal Wedding Speeches Further discussion of it can take place in that thread.

This thread is for current events in Haakon and Mette-Marit's life.

But even if the marriage was a bluff, the break up 3 moths later was not planned. the reason we split up was because there was no love and because Renate wante dot move on wit her life
I still wonder hoe Mette-Marits mother who seems like a sane and descreet person could marry this clown in the first place, I guess "fame" must have done something to him.

I remember reading an article about the family the day after the wedding by one of Norways most respected journalists, describing them as a nice normal family who would gradually diappear and only be seen for christenings and the odd party like the Ferners, Lorentzes and Haraldsens, how wrong was he:o

In regards to her dad, all my thumbs in MM's back .... support, yuh know.

(if you're wondering where the "thumbs" part comes from ... my most sincere apologies ... I translated it from the German phrase, "Ich halte Dir einen Daum im Ruecken".

In other words .... I give you support (in your endeavour(s)))

Well, Mette-Marit's mother is behaving rather like Dagny Haraldsen did. Discretely.

I never knew Mette-Marit's father was this ridiculous. His marriage, if you can call it that, was just his ticket to Thailand IMO. Also his claims to write an unofficial biography of Marius is despicable. Even if he never writes one, just to say that you're going to exploit your own grandson like that is horrible. I hope for Mette-Marit and Marius's sake that he never does. There is no question why Mette-Marit tries to limit the time her father has with her kids. He is in no way a role model for anyone, young or old.

I know, I mean her father should give her a break. I think it's enough that she's been through a lot before she could finally adjust to being a crown princess.

Sven O. Høiby has lung cancer '06

Mette-Marits father has today been diagnosed with lung cancer, he already told that he though he had it in the se og hør that came out today, and he also told se og hør online today just hours after he had been diagnised.

Information secretary at the palace Astrid Versto has no comment.

Sven O. Høiby definetely has a warped sense of reality. The average person would probably be strucked by such news and would most dwell on it with their family, but this man goes straight to Se og Hør just hours after he's been diagnosed?

Anyway, I wish him well and hope that he gets the treatment that he needs.

I agree with you Alisa about the warped sense of reality Sven O. Høiby seems to have.

Call me a big skeptic, but I also find it very ironic that he picked the fifth wedding anniversary of his daughter to announce his tragic news. Isn't this the very man who seems to announce big things very publicly whenever there is something big happening in his daughter's life? No wonder she wants nothing to do with him.

But as a human being, I do hope that he'll get the treatment he needs.

It would be nice if he could start with a psychiatric treatment at the same time.

Poor Princess for as much she want she can't be quiet in her place developing her job as Crown Princess, she must have her heart jumping when the news program starts...
