Lucien:Please,this is not about private pains whereever they may occur.But while you're at it I had the same three times so what's new...I don't assume nor gossip nor read rags... and I'm the most cheerfull person on the planet....I just say as it is.Too bad it blows bubbles here and there or your personal bubble,but blame MM for that,she started...

When a person regardless of who it is, is in pain, it's NOBODY'S BUSINESS but that person's.....
Cheerful......with your comment, seriously doubt that
Personal bubble......what the heck is that
Blame MM.........please tell me what you blame her for.........being sick?
Karma does have a way of back biting people that are nasty any where on this earth..
Honesty in an question is always the best answer.......

Okay, what is the substance here?

Have Haakon or MM been seen being a little too fond of someone else?
Have they had a row in public?
Have they been seen hardly being able to endure eachother in public?
Do they live most of the time apart?
Has anyone who must be considered to be in the know, said anything about their relationship?
Are there any other concrete signs of an impending divorce?

If the answer to the above questions is no, what is left?

Yes, there's that as well. Charles and Harald would be second cousins once removed.

I do not know much about either Haakon or MM other than they are a crown princely couple of Norway and that they have children. From time to time I've caught blips of information here on their activities and such but in no way could I ever say I "know" them perhaps as well as I would "know" a British royal. I use the word know lightly in the respect that I tend to read more about one more than the other.

As its been stated many times here, this is all rumor. So what if they've not have those moments we love to post about and see in the "Loving moments" thread lately. Marriage isn't about loving looks, holding hands and cooing sweet nothings into one's ear 24/7. It involves disagreements, "I don't like you too much right now" days and times you wish the other would simply go away somewhere. It involves doing things you really might not want to do sometimes and responsibilities that just cannot be avoided. There is not enough money in the world that can ever purchase instant happiness or togetherness.

Would it really be the end of the world if this couple realizes that sometimes the best way to love someone is to let them go? Would it be so hard to watch a couple try to work out their relationship by a trial separation? Would it be so much of an utter surprise to realize that these were in fact, all rumors? A relationship is between two people in a marriage and no one else and we cannot even begin to fathom the ins and outs of anyone's relationships besides our own.

These rumors are not a scandal. They are not anything but a waste of breath compounded by a fan that flames them into a whirlwind. Its empty words that keep those with something missing in their lives that they feel that they need to focus on someone else's without a clue what they're talking about even. Perhaps Haakon and MM are somewhere laughing at it all even.

I feel sorry for those that need to feed on the rumors and not the couple itself.

Agree Osipi except for the use of the word "fans". People who care about this couple would not have created this whirlwind. Trolls - bitter, nasty people who love to cause damage. I do not feel sorry for them at all. I think it is a crime - young people have died because of this type of bullying, vicious behaviour by individuals who do not recognise any responsibility for their actions.

Your comment really is right on, I am so sick to death of negative, bad-mouthing idiots who have nothing better to do with their time then make up ugly stories or repeat insane rumors about people that don't even know personally. This type of behavior is sick, and childish and mean, negative, cruel and hateful, this is don by spiteful people who are so jealous of what others have and they don't have the same.

My grandmother used to say to me: If you can't say something nice, then be QUIET, nobody needs lies or rumors or negative energy nor do we need sugar just to say something, *the truth is always the best answer to anything*...
Amen! I think that MM is a natural target for the haters and nay-sayers because of her pre-marital status as an unwed mother. However, I have to say that MM has carried herself as well as any other Crown Princess since her marriage. As for the rumor that there is someone waiting for her in New York --- I cannot believe that MM would leave two of her three children in Norway while she goes on to a new life in New York.

Some people are really sooo hateful!

Whoooops! As usual, being reigning Queen of Typos, I had to have at least one. My intention was to say "fan the flames" rather than infer that fans of the couple were to be blamed. :) Thanks for finding that one.

Its been corrected.

no problem. Thx for the correction.

You hit a nerve because generally I try and find a balance but trolls definitely bring out my dark side

Forgive me, but that seems ridiculous, and the attitude you've expressed is emblematic of the type of gossip-mongering that tabloids feed on. With NO hard evidence to be cited, and only suspicions and assumptions that build a cloudy image of someone's marriage, it's no wonder that these altogether unsubstantiated rumors have garnered so much stupid attention.

The pearl-clutching and fake righteous indignation are quite entertaining.

If memory services me right, the Crown Princely coupe did take legal action against some tabloid. So if the rumours are false, Crown Prince Haakon or Crown Princess Mette-Marit will take legal action against privacy intrusion.

Good point Al-bina, I had forgotten about that! I hope they do the same this time as well.

If I remember correctly the legal action was taken when photographs from a private vacation were published. Different from just ignoring these silly rumors.

The sad thing about this one though, since it was from Twitter this all started from, just how do you find the right person to go after? We all know anyone can cover their tracks online these days and also how completely innocent users of a website/service can be falsely accused of being the one responsible due to that other person covering their tracks. I think I hear of something like that happening at least once or twice a week now, where it used to be only every so often.

Whoever started this is lower than slime. To use the absence of the Crown Princess for more than legitimate reasons, not to mention for a surgery where the risk of rather serious nerve damage is a very real thing to have to consider *and* likely had her Family terrified the entire day of the Operation until the news than all gone exactly as planned, is actually worse than slime. They're a Slimy, Worm riddled Coward. Sadly, those are the type of critter creatures that seem to wield far too many ways to damage and hurt people in this new digital world of ours.

I really hope Haakon and/or Mette-Marit have managed to contact the Children's Teachers over the weekend to give them a head's up about this. I have no idea how Norway deals w/kids abusing kids (Never will I call it by all the safe names used to hide the actual reality of what is going on in the schools. What I survived was not "bullying". It was abuse, and I firmly believe once we call it what it actually is, that's when change will come. I truly do believe that.), but as night follows day, I'm sure some kid can't wait to get to school and in turn attempt to "but...I was only teasing..." Can't see it happening to Marius, but to Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Sverre Magnus, that I sadly can all too easily see happening.

The one thing that is fact and I give far more weight and credence to : the Crown Prince was due to give a very important speech to a Global Dignity event in the US, but cancelled it as soon as he knew Mette-Marit's Surgery date was going to close to/happening on the actual day in the event sked for the speech. I have a hard time believing Haakon would have done that if things are as truly on the rocks as one stupid Tweet would make you think.

And that's how I'm treating this, one stupid Tweet designed to do exactly what it's intent was, to stir up trouble and stress during the worse possible time to have it happen. If we ever hear anything official, then we'll talk. Until then...

I missed seeing HRH attending whatever Event in Norway was held to mark World AIDS Day today. Her role as the UN Special Ambassador for Youth & AIDS (I think I have that right) is one of the causes/roles I've noticed seems to be one very close to her heart and I'm sure Mette-Marit missed taking part in this year's event too.

Oh...One last thing, thank you everyone for once again reminding me just why I have certain Members around here on Ignore. Not that I really needed a reminder, but it isn't a bad thing to be reminded of from time to time either...

One thing I am reminded of and have come to appreciate even more now is the fact that here at The Royal Forums, our moderators and administrators strive to keep our discussions well away from speculation and gossip and slanderous types of postings. We're encouraged to be ready to show where we base our facts on, remain courteous and respectful to others in the conversation as well as towards the subjects we discuss.

Many times if one was to google about anything royal, chances are that a link will appear to direct one to this message forums and I'm proud to be a member here.

Sorry, but this is a message board. Over 90% of what is written on here are assumptions. You hardly ever get any evidence or hard facts on ANYTHING that is being discussed here concerning the Royals as they do not tend to confirm or comment on their issues. A vast majority of the topics being discussed on the forum are sourced by tabloids or gossip websites. Its up to you what you chose to believe as the varity has always been between sugary and nasty stuff. Just because something sounds nice 'they are so much in love' doesnt make it true. TRF has not started any rumours but only cites outlets like HELLO picking up on the topic, as they pick up on any other royal topic, positive or negative. Its the nature of their business. If you looking for hard facts or evidence you won't find much when it comes to Royal Families and their issues.

Why would it look foolish if he did because of cheating issues? If the rumours are true then I'm sure they tried to work things out before it reached a point of divorce. Moreover, this could be a reason with other reasons.
I know people who would actually divorce in a blink of an eye if one or the other cheated. Some couples are just against it and can't live with it even if they have children.
