Someone found the dress Princess Ragnhild wore at Princess Astrid's wedding at UFF (a second-hand shop, where the proceeds go to charity), and now it has ended up at a museum next to Princess Astrid's wedding dress: https://www.minmote.no/#!/artikkel/2...prinsessekjole

Wow, that's a neat little story. I wonder how it ended up in there.

Erling Lorentzen has written a debate article about NRK's TV-series Atlantic Crossing.

Rest in peace, and condolences to the Royal Family.

Strangely, Mr. Lorentzen was removed from the Royal Family a few years after the death of his wife, even though he did not remarry.

But I am not aware of any reason to believe that it was due to any bad blood between him and his brother-in-law, and I am glad the Palace released its message.

What are the current regulations regarding funerals? There will surely be interest in a public memorial given his status as a war hero.

There's a ban on (public) events in Norway, but funerals and memorial ceremonies are grandfathered in. Up to 50 guests are allowed to attend.

Rest in peace Erling Sven Lorentzen!
Did he live in Brazil?
I hope there's at least one mass or memorial ceremony in Norway.

He and his wife moved to Brazil when they married, but he returned to Norway some years after the Princess's death (and found a new partner there, although he did not marry her).

Here is a brief biographical article in English, written by a Norwegian historian (unfortunately, the official website does not appear to have one):

Trond Norén Isaksen: On this date: Erling S. Lorentzen’s 90th birthday


Quote:
[...] During World War II he joined the resistance movement, becoming one of the youngest members of the elite resistance group Company Linge.

When the royal family returned from exile in 1945, Lorentzen became part of the royal protection squad. He was also given the task of teaching the young princesses to sail, and captured the heart of Princess Ragnhild in 1946. Despite initial strong opposition from King Haakon and Crown Princess Märtha, Lorentzen and Princess Ragnhild were eventually allowed to marry [in 1953].

[...]

Following their wedding, Lorentzen and the Princess settled in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to take care of the Lorentzen family’s business interests. The initial plan was for them to stay there for two years, but it turned out to be forever.

In 1968 Erling S. Lorentzen founded the company Aracruz Cellulose, which turned out to be a great financial success; Lorentzen was able to sell his share for approximately $ 1.7 billion when Aracruz merged with another company in 2008.

[...]

Sad, but expected news; he was 98 already.

Go to the eternal guard, one of last WWII veterans!

I'm sorry if this is somewhere on the thread already, but how was Princess Ragnhild able to convince her parents to allow the marriage? (I assume she didn't have threats to resort to like her brother did.)

She was never in line of succession to the throne. Her spouse would never be a member of the royal family. Even so, when she married a commoner her birthday was removed as a flag day.

Contrast to her brother who was going to be king. His spouse would be the queen consort of the country. There was far more pressure for him to marry a 'suitable royal bride'. Trying to convince his father a commoner could make a good future queen consort was another matter.

If she and her future children had a place in succession when she married, there may have been more pressure for her to marry a royal.

Still, her seven-year wait for approval was not shorter by very much compared to her brother's nine years of waiting, so the objections must have been strong indeed.
