These posts are a dime a dozen on social media from parents. People thinking their children hung the stars and gushing over them like crazy. Heck grandparents are even worse.

If any of the kids she goes to school with follow ML on Instagram (highly unlikely) they likely have seen similar from other parents.

Yes.
It comes across as insincere.

Especially as Durek is not a close relative or her step-father.
I find it a little creepy actually. Not that I in all honesty suspect Durek of having any tendencies towards children. It's just that had he been a Scandinavian I would keep a close eye on him.
Had she been my daughter I would have written something like: "Congratulations, (insert term of endearment). Well done!" (Additional praise would be face to face.)

Cultural differences are a funny thing.

I'm totaly with Muhler on that; for me European it ist totaly OTT - and kind of creepy sounding.



I don't even think it is healthy for the children to be so gushed over - quite the contrary.

As an American, I actually think that it is WAY over the top and actually kind of creepy. I was uncomfortable when I read it. I’m sure he’s fond of her but it’s just way, way too much. I think that all of his comments on Instagram are sickly sweet and way over the top... when he and Martha Louise write to each other it seems more like two lovesick teenagers, not two adults in their mid-/late-forties. It just gives me the creeps all around.

The photos are still on Märtha Louise's Instagram page, but with another linking:


https://www.instagram.com/p/CEhSZ46A8pw/


And in case the second link should vanish as well, Hola has the photos too

Thanks! Really nice pictures and a beautiful tribute by Märtha Louise also including Ari's pride in his daughter.

Leah Isadora is a carbon copy of ML! I didn't realise the resemblance between the two was so strong.

Leah Isadora is a beautiful girl, but shouldn't a girl go to be confirmed white-clad?

Not in Norway it seems, this is personal blog from someone, but it seems to describe the concept of confirmation in Norway quite well

As we saw with Ingrid Alexandra when she was confirmed, wearing a bunad is traditional in Norway.


She likely wore a white robe, as Ingrid did, during the actual service over it.

Märtha Louise following Durek's example in stressing that her father is the king?! Quite a strange way to wish your father a happy birthday...

It's a wordplay on king.

Konge in Norwegian (and Danish) is also slang for something or someone being great.
Example: That goal was konge!

Thanks! That is one of those things that imo are literally "lost in translation"
