Märtha Louise as an author
 
Princess cashes in on title to sell her children's book
Norway's Princess Martha Louise will be using her royal title for all its worth this month, when she sets off on an 11-day tour of the US to sell a children's book she's written.

Such commercial exploitation is controversial at home in Norway.

is there some sort of schedule? I'd like to be able to go see her and buy her book. It'd be really interesting, but...I'd guess she won't be coming to cincinnati. It'd be nice though...

Having read the book, in Norwegian, I have to say that it's the kind of book that might not have sold quite as solid as it has done, had it not been written by a princess, and published before the centennial. Because other than that, it doesn't really stand out- writingwise.

It's not a bad children's book, per se, but Bomann-Larsen's children's book around the same theme (the Royal family's arrival in 1905 and skiing), is funnier and a better read. That is, of course, only my opinion.

The weather's been lousy here in New York. Its been raining nonstop since last night. I wanted to go to the Scandavian House today but its just too yucky out and I have bronchitis.

The signing looks like its a success - bad weather notwithstanding. LaMinka, how did it go?

Heh, I like how true this is. "Using her royal title for all its worth"...kinda' brings Sarah Ferguson to mind. :P Both very nice people, but relying on their titles to sell stuff. Didn't Fergie write books under "HRH the Duchess of York"?

Very god, Märtha is great! I was going with my little sister Julie and Märtha was very nice with all the children and she talk with them and again she is just great! And she is more beautiful in person than in the pictures:rolleyes:

And btw when me and Julie was on Scandinavia House, was my boyfriend on this site (Logged in as me) and he like this site very much too.

Thanks for telling us LaMinka! She seems like she really loves children. Did you take any pictures?

I think its great that she able to have a career for herself and heighten awareness of the Norwegian monarchy with her stories.

I wonder were you worried about your boyfriend posting anything here while you were gone? :D

I am very sad right now. I have been watching Fox and Friends since 4 AM PDT this morning (and I watched the entire three hour show yesterday morning) hoping to see Martha Louise and so far I haven't seen anything. It's 6:38 AM right now. I don't think they will have her on after all. It's really sad, as I was really, really looking forward to this.

Thanks for posting the article Pink Tulip.

I wonder where Nancy Bartley dug up this fact "When she fell in love and married a commoner deemed unsuitable by her father." :confused:

Harald never disapproved of Ari Behn and even if he did, he never publicly hinted at it.
