Looks like Haakon and Ingrid Alexandra are the best surfers in the family - based on the sizes of their boards.

The papers today quotes the court for saying that Mette-Marit suffers from "crystal-sickness". It's a disease in the inner ear, causing intense dizziness.
If treated in time you will usually be well again within a couple of weeks.

It means Mette-Marit will have to cancel a number of events, but the court reports that she should be fine again by Sunday.

More about it:

From the court:

Quote:
Her Royal Highness The Crown Princess receives treatment for crystal sickness.

The Crown Princess is improving, but after the doctor's advice, the Crown Princess does not travel to Troms° today. His Royal Highness The Crown Prince will therefore conduct the Gjestebudet alone.

The Crown Princess will resume her official duties on Sunday, November 26, 2017.

The Norwegian #royal court confirms in a press release that the Crown Princess suffers from Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. The Crown Princess is under treatment and will carry out her duties on Sunday.

Wikipedia article about ''Benign paroxysmal positional vertigocrystal-sickness'' - also called crystal-sickness:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...ecial%3ASearch

There are many Norwegian articles about it, but I don't have time to translate now.

When your inner ear is affected, you suffer from extreme dizziness, nausea, balance trouble, etc. You have trouble moving at all without feeling absolutely wretched. Even when lying still you feel like everything is spinning. Although "benign" it's not fun at all. I hope HRH feels better soon.

Thanks eya! That interview (on the radio program P3morgen) took place on Dec 19th. - I did listen to it, but I forgot to post information about it here.

Article from Royal Central:
Crown Princess Mette-Marit speaks about her disease – Royal Central
Quote:
On Tuesday of this week, the Crown Princess was interviewed on the popular radio channel P3 in Norway. Then, she commented on her sickness.

During the interview, the Crown Princess said, “I thought I had come early in menopause.” However, the Crown Princess explained that she now feels much better, but that she, from time to time, forgets more.

The Crown Princess is sure that it is training that triggered the illness. “I have been incredibly good at training this fall and am very pleased with it. We are a team of four girls who use a video app where we train at home in our living room,” she told and added, “Last week there were some movements I cannot show because I am afraid I will trigger the crystals again.”

However, it was not during the training that the Crown Princess noted that something was wrong. The Crown Princess said, “I was in a meeting with Haakon and my mother-in-law and father-in-law [King Harald and Queen Sonja] and several from our management team, I turned my head quickly and then it was just as if the whole world began to move.”

After this, the Crown Princess failed to continue the meeting and had to retreat. “I slept for four hours,” she said.
NRK/P3 article with video clips - some quotes translated by me:
p3.no ┬╗ Snakket ut om krystallsyken
Quote:
The radio-hosts also used the opportunity to get to know the Crown Princess better through P3morgen's school diary and asked:

Q: Favorite Series?

''The West Wing, I have seen it many, many times and have a romantic relationship with it. But The Handmaid’s Tale is one of the best series made''.

Q: Favorite song right now?

''Very hard to say, but one of my absolute favorite songs is "Sometimes It Snows In April" by Prince''.

Q: Biggest idol?

''May be Haakon Magnus. He, or Michelle Obama.''

Q: The craziest thing you've experienced?

"I do not think it's suitable for radio," said the Crown Princess.
Scandinavian speakers can listen to the whole interview here:
https://radio.nrk.no/serie/p3morgen/...017#t=1h32m17s

From me: She received some criticism on another radio program and on twitter after the interview. - Why?

1. Because, as readers of the Norwegian forums already know, she and Haakon are criticized for everything they do now.

2. And because her answer to the ''biggest idol'' question wasn't very popular here. - Why? Because she didn't name Queen Sonja as her idol/role model.

Some other points from me:

1. I for one have no problem with her answer. - Why? Because she has done nothing but praising the King and Queen in other interviews (so has Haakon).

2. Haakon has repeatedly told that the King is his role model, but unfortunately, it does not seem like there is any truth to it.

3. BTW, Haakon was interviewed on P3morgen in Feb 2016 (he also received some criticism for his performance).
