You have a right to defend Crown Princess of Norway. If any of my posts are against the TRF rules, the moderators will modify or delete them. It has been my understanding that the TRF advises one to abstain from unsolicited advice.
Well, hate, dislike, call it what you want. Anyway, you use every opportunity to spread your, let´s say, "critics" against the CPss, no matter what it is about - this time it is her ancestry.
Do you know the wise word of "If you have nothing good to say about a person, say nothing!"?
Again, this thread is about genealogy as such, not if this means something. In fact, she wouldn´t need Kings or noble people in her ancestry nowadays to fulfill her job as future Queen of Norway at all. But it is simply interesting to know that she does have this particular background.
Beyond that, the Princess derives from a normal middle class background with a mother who worked as a bank employee and a father who was a journalist, loved by her parents and siblings. And that is something that REALLY does matter indeed!
