I suppose it had to be something when it was postponed so many times.
Oh, dear oh dear ...
I wonder what they are disagreeing about, don't you?
Well, MM is probably -- just a guess, here -- feeling some pressure from The Palace wanting her to get her story out there, no? I have heard this was the reason that she is cooperating with the writing of her Biography to begin with.
To my mind, she seems a bit young to have a Bio issued about her, although if it IS published in English, I will want to get it!

I wonder if the delay has anything to do with her younger days pre-Haarkon. With hindsight, people often regret the things they have done in moments of "youthful indiscretion". Official bios tend to whitewash some of those rough times, either at the subject's request or the writer.

How to get Princess Märtha Louises book?

Since a few months I try to get the book "Why kings and queens don't wear crowns" of Princess Märtha Louise of Norway. Does anyone know, where I can buy it?

Does anyone have read that book? How is it?

It's an okay children's book - not particularly special in my opinion.

To be clear it was no illicit affair but (if true) is said to be artificial insemination using a turkey baster. The sperm donor was the doctor's handsome young son. Perhaps Haakon was infertile, or perhaps he and Maud had aversion to having sexual relations since as first cousins they were had grown up close like brother and sister.

The monarchy may only be 103 years old in Norway but king Harald is a direct descendant of the last Norwegian kings of about 1000 years ago and he is equally descended directly from the Danish and Swedish kings who in the centuries in-between reigned over Norway and had the title of "king of Norway" in addition to their own. Thus I'd say he is from a very old dynasty indeed.

I wish they could publish translated version of the books to English especially so I could read on Crown Prince Haskon and Crown princess Mette marit and other Norwegian Royalty.

New book about the Royal Palace, Oslo

Hi,

There is a new book out about the Royal Castle in Oslo. The book has stories about what went on during late 70's when King Olav V was still the Norwegian King. There is also fun stories about Miss Cooper, a small British woman that was chamber maid for the late Queen Maud.

The book also tells stories on how it was to stay with the royals at both Kongssetra, the place where the Norwegian royals stay during Christmas and New Year, as well as Bygdø Kongsgård, their summer holiday place i Oslo.

The book is tittled "Residens Drammensveien 1" and are for now written only in Norwegian, but hopefully it will also come out in English.

By Royal Castle are you referring to the Royal Palace in Oslo?

Hi, yes that's right, which is in Norwegian "Det Kongelige Slott". The book tittle "Residens Drammensveien 1" is the old address of the Royal Palace in Oslo. It was later on changed to Henrik Ibsens gate 1 in 2006 and then in 2012 changed to Slottsplassen.
