Thanks, I forgot about that one - barnetrygden!

This is the thread to discuss current pictures and news about Mette-Marit's son Marius.

Keep in mind the rules before posting.

What name does Marius call Haakon?

I wonder what Marius uses to Haakon? Does he call him Papa? Sir? Maybe just Haakon? Does Marius even meet with his own father?

He calls him Haakon. There was a recent video released where he drew a picture and it was for "Mama and Haakon".

I know in America most children will call there stepfather by his first name, except in cases where he's been raised by the stepfather from birth or a very young age and the biological father is out of the picture. Then they would usually call him dad.

to me that's kind of strange, calling your step father by his last name...."Hey Olsen, can you help me with my homework?" Sounds almost disrespectful from an American point of view.

Is Haakon his last name? I thought it was his first name. If it's his last name - that is kind of interesting.

Haakon's not his last name, I think point that is trying to be made is that it's normal for the first name to be used when addressing a stepfather because "Papa" isn't appropriate, since Marius seems to see his father (as evidenced by pictures I've seen in other threads) and "Sir" is way too formal. Haakon hasn't adopted Marius, either. I don't know how often Marius sees his biological father, though, and where the father lives in relation to the Crown Princely couple.

Marius biological father has supposedly cleaned himself up, and now is able to have access to him. I think Marius has even spent a Christmas with him.

The guy knows that if he messes up again this time he won't have an enraged single mother to hide from but a very angry King and Crown Prince to seek and destroy him, so I think he's really trying but Haakon and MM keep a very close eye on him.

I think Marius thinks more of Haakon as a father than his own for several reasons:

1. He lives with Haakon, mom and his siblings so he spents a lot of time with him
2. Haakon has been there for him in many moments like first days of school and stuff
3. Haakon strengted his love for MM through the love for her son

Marius' biological father has unlimited access to Marius. When Marius began school Mette-Marit, Haakon and Morten Borg all accompanied him. All three (plus Marius' paternal grandmother) have been photographed at one of Marius' sports days.
The day Haakon's and MM's engagement was announced Marius' father took him to spend the day in the mountains to protect him from the media.
Marius goes on summer holidays with his father and spends weekends at his home. His father has remarried, ( Marius was at the wedding) and Marius now has a half-brother as well as a step-brother as his step-mother had a son by a previous relationship.
He has a father who is a very active participant in his life, so that's who he calls papa. Haakon is his stepfather and he calls him by his first name.

From Ingrid Alexandra's 2nd birthday video, they show a picture Marius has drawn for his mom and Haakon:

"To Mommy and Haakon"

Marius has got a biological father to call Dad but I think he is very attached to Crown Prince Haakon. In those many pictures, where Haakon and Marius are together, it’s clear that they are very much fond of each other. And in the Christmas pictures of 2005-2006 it’s obvious that other members of the Royal Family also love Marius a lot, I mean Queen Sonja hugs him as if he were her biological grandson. It’s one big, happy family.

And WOW! Marius has got a really big family, Mom, Dad, Step-father, step-mother, half-sister, two half-brothers, step-brother, grandmothers and grandfathers, not counting all step-grandfathers and –grandmothers!

As mentioned in several threads, already, no, Haakon hasn't adopted Marius.

I suppose he is, after all he has taken over many of the duties of a father.

It is hard to see how Haakon could adopt him, as he has a living father whom he sees regularly.
I love the picture Marius drew!

A stepfather doesn't have to be involved with his step-child, he has to be married to the child's mother. That's simply a legal position and has nothing to do with actual relationships. For example, I had a stepmother who was married to my father for ten years and our conversations consisted of me asking her to put my father on the phone. She was still my stepmother, even though I never spoke more than 20 words to her a month.

That may be, but Haakon's relationship with Marius seems much more of a biological father-son relationship. He's very affectionate and caring and considers Marius as good as his own.
