This thread will be closed until we're closer to January - or if there is more news to be discussed. Thank you, Larzen, for letting us know about the visit.:flowers:

One of Norway's leading environmental groups wants Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit to cancel their official trip to Chile next week, on "ethical grounds.

It will be interesting to see if they go to Chile as planned, despite the info they have been presented with.

Intresting that this letter just came out when the trip was announced a while ago.

SASSY 01-21-2008 03:18 PM

I don't think they'll cancel their plans.

carlota 01-21-2008 03:44 PM

what a difficult position for them! i just hope that if they do cancel the trip, the claims are true and viceversa. i hope to see them there, though (MM did wonderfully while visiting guatemala earlier on!), although if the claims are serious, perhaps it's better if they do cancel it. i'm sure they should have advisors investigating the situation before/at the moment. was an official agenda released?

Katrianna 01-21-2008 06:00 PM

I read this afternoon that the Crown Prince couple will leave tomorrow, Tuesday for Chile. The trip will go ahead.

According to Aftenposten MM had to cancel her trip because she is sick.
Haakon left for Chile alone, it's not sure whether MM will join him when she feels better.
Mette-Marit avlyser Chile-tur

It's a pity, I always enjoy seeing pictures of their official visits. Somehow I'm not so interested in what they do in Norway but I think they are a great team abroad (e.g. in India).:smile:

Regarding the request to cancel the trip I agree with some other poster:
The trip was announced quite a while ago and I assume that such official visits are decided carefully and in accordance with the foreign ministry and planned long in advance before they are announced. Cancelling now (because of ethical reasons) would be an insult to Chile.

I think that it depends on how ill she is. Obviously by being advised by her doctor not to travel (I can't imagine all those hours on a plane being fun if you have "omgangssyke" ie. the stomach flu) she isn't well. The question is when she gets well, and whether or not she will feel up to a long plane trip to Chile then.

From the article it sounds like the stomach flu is something that "goes around" at the Palace and in Ingrid's kindergarten. Probably inevitable that at least one of Haakon and Mette-Marit would get it.

dazzling 01-22-2008 08:55 AM

I hope she gets better soon. This wouldve been a lovely trip of the couple, guess would see them another time.

I dont think shell follow him, the visit is short & pretty long way. Unless they would plan to stay a few days later after the trip.

So when does the visit actually start, today or tomorrow?

sgl 01-22-2008 10:04 AM

Poor Mette-Marit! The stomach flu is awful. There is nothing worse than travelling while you are ill. It is impossible to enjoy yourself or do anything at all when you have the stomach flu. I hope that she feels better very soon.:flowers:

msleiman 01-22-2008 11:34 AM

I feel bad for MM! Our family just got over the flu and it was awful! I hope she feels better soon.

sofajr 01-22-2008 11:42 AM

I know that infection is aweful! wish her soon recovery. did Haakon leave for Chile?

Her_Majesty 01-22-2008 12:59 PM

It's sad to hear Mette-marit had to cancel her agenda. I hope she will recover soon.

Anyway, I am looking forward to see Prince Haakon in Chile!

antonieta 01-22-2008 01:43 PM

I hope Crown Princess Mette - Marit get's better soon.

kwanfan 01-22-2008 03:20 PM

It's too bad that Mette-Marit had to cancel, although it's certainly understandable. You can't really do public engagements if you are having stomach problems all day. I'm glad that Haakon is well so that the trip didn't have to be completely canceled.
