Would someone mind translating the article above (thank you, Her Majesty for the link)? I have always admired MM for her work with UNAIDS.

Very beautiful and very beautifully dressed I think

Hope she's not too bad. :ermm:

Paty 10-20-2008 04:52 AM

Oh! I hope she feels well.

It must of been some fall.

apparently the reminder of the visit will also be cancelled, it has been announced to norwegian newspapers. the spokesperson announced that MM was really sorry. we'll have to wait and see, hopefully there will be an official announcement soon. how unfortunate, it's a real shame. i'm sure MM herself and the activities she was going to visit/get involved with are much dissappointed.

according to aftenposten, she had some troubles before in official visits (in germany, the sunburnt during a press meeting) and the visit to chile, that got cancelled before it started because MM fell ill.

rominet09 10-20-2008 10:43 AM

Really bad luck, I hope she gets well soon

Amely 10-20-2008 10:45 AM

Wow! She was in Kiev, in my city :ohmy::shock: But our press tells nothing about this visit :ermm:

I hope she will feel good

Parrothead 10-20-2008 11:54 AM

Poor MM! I hope she recovers quickly and she is able to reschedule the trip for sometime in the future.

pamk 10-20-2008 11:55 AM

Is MM pregnant? She certainly looks it in the pictures of her arrival -

Parrothead 10-20-2008 11:58 AM

I wondered that also, but I don't think the rules of the forum allow us to speculate. Although (breaking a rule here....) that could explain why she fell. On the other hand, she could be like millions of us and is just naturally clumsy or was rushing to leave her hotel room, trying to put on a high heeled shoe and grab a purse and just fell down.

whatever the reason for the accident, I hope she recovers quickly.

sgl 10-20-2008 01:24 PM

Poor Mette-Marit! I hope that she is going to be okay. It seems like she is quite passionate about the AIDS awareness cause, and I'm sure that she is disappointed that she won't be able to do all of the things that she has planned.

According to an article I read she was falling down the stairs.

How pity. I wish her all the best.

I'm really sorry for her. She has said in an interview that state visits are very important for them. And it must feel horrible to know that many people are disapponted because things has been called off. I feel really sorry for her, and I hope she recover soon. She must feel horrible for this. Falling in stairs is easy to do, unfortunately, and this time it happened at a very bad time. Well any time is bad, but of all times, at a state visit.... Poor Crownprincess. She take much pride in doing a good job.

marmi 10-20-2008 05:00 PM

Not good luck at all!

To have fallen and hit her head is bad enough, but then to have to cancel the rest of the visit & have it make headlines?!
Poor thing!
