Norwegian royals and security

I think we can say for sure that she will not be at the centenary events, even if she has the baby soon I dont know about any woman who has just had her 3 child and will feel up to don a gala dress infront of the intired Norwegian press.
***************************

Vg has an article about how the security around the royals and especially Mette-Marit has been increased now right before the birth.

VG quotes Se og Hør that reports that Mette-Mairt has gotten a violence/safety alarm. It’s a small gadget with a red button and if she pushes it the police will be immediately alarmed. She ha also been allowed to use it if something should happen in the end of the pregnancy so that the doctors can be immediately alarmed. They also say that the safety around Mette-Marit has been gradually increased, now she can not be outside without two bodyguards from the Police (Me: when she was first engaged she was sometimes out without any protection) Also Marius has now a bodyguard full time. Also Princess Märtha Louise has the safety alarm. For the royals it is mostly mentally disturbed people that are the problem, especially Märtha has had problems with disturbed men after she got married and had children

When Marius goes to school how does security work?

I have wondered this before about wealthy children (well their parents are wealthy), I assume they go to a Private school where they lock the doors etc.

But what about Marius, does the bodyguard stay at the school all day?

I think the bodyguard would sit in the back of the class and pretty much follow him around everywhere, but blend in a bit. Watching the child is his job after all.

All the Royals' bodyguards (Harald down to Haakon) stayed in the hall while class was in progress so I see no reason why Marius' bodyguard would proceed differently.

i'm glad they implemented this for Mette-Marit & Martha Louise.

I think it's necessary for any celebrity to have these security measures. There are alot of risks for famous people these days and they need and deserve the protection. It's also helpful for CP Mette-Marit since she is so close to the end of her pregnancy. I read somewhere once that the British Royals had them, and they were called 'panic buttons'?

Wouldn't that be that alarm device she's supposed to carry around? It has been discussed in this thread.

that's true! we were talking about the increased security. maybe it has something to do with that (i was actually thinking she had a false alarm, as mary or letizia some months ago).

so, se og hor is not a reliable source?

Back to the security guards for the royal children in school, I second what Mandy said. I recall reading an article a long time ago about the security people around William and Harry and it also said that their guards stayed in the hallway -- which would make sense -- unless someone were climbing in the window, they could head off an intruder before (s)he got to the classroom and threatened all the children.

I read somewhere that these alarms are rather small, so even a child could carry one. Personally, I like the idea of the royals having them for safety.

I wonder if it sets of a noise in the guards ear piece or something. I don't know much about the subject.
