They are not; Norway is an egalitarian country.

Norway does have an upper class just like all other countries. Because titles are no longer used does not mean everyone is equal.

Of course not, but wealthy Norwegians are not "royal in all but name."

All right aristo in all but name, how's that? They is still the wealthy and elite class every country has even the smallest poorest.And as all wealthy and elite classes I imagine they usually stick together and intermarry, correct?

True, when you are a Huitfeldt, a Løvenskiold, a Treschow, a Wedell-Jarlsberg, a Knjagenhelm, a Roos af Hjelmsjäter, etc. they you really belong to the "better class" of Norway, so to speak.

Marius Borg Hoiby - Discussions

I remember, from the time of the marriage between Haakon and Mette-Marit, an older Norwegian gentleman saying on Swedish tv that "nobody expects The Prince to marry another royal for political reasons but we do have old, grand families in Norway to choose from instead of shopping in the gutter ". At least to him there were an Norwegian upper class (both previously noble and newer families) and in truth many of the old noble families continued to hold positions at the Royal court at least until the dissolution of the union with Sweden in 1905.

An article about Marius in US Weekly:

Quote:

Move over, Prince Harry: there’s a new hot royal in town! Marius Borg Hoiby, the son of Norway’s Crown Princess Mette-Marit, stepped out on with the rest of his royal family for a soccer game in Oslo earlier this month, sparking all kinds of flustered reactions and attention on the Internet.

The only problem is with the TITLE of the article. The article clearly states that he's NOT a royal, but his half-sibs are, which is completely correct.

Ooh burn. IA or her brother might very well break the marrying commoners trend though.

Not about Mette-Marit.. There are plenty of people at the top who did what she did and worse. Choosing someone from the aristocracy doesn't always mean that person will be classy.

So let's stop looking up at the ones "above" us and looking down at the ones "below" us. There isn't much of a difference.
