2. Both the SIKT Conference, the Global Dignity thing and other things he's involved in shows his political opinions.

3. He was also accused by a Progress Party member (one of two parties in the government) some years ago for being a supporter of the Labour Party, which I can understand since I'm a labour supporter myself, but he as an future apolitical constitutional monarch has to be careful with what he does/says.

4. And it doesn't help that he's a personal friend of Jonas Gahr Støre, leader of the Labour Party since 2014, Minister of Health between 2012-2013 and Foreign Minister between 2005-2012.

5. And many ask themselves - what happens if Jonas becomes prime minister while Haakon is one the throne?

6. And then we have all the other things that Norwegians don't like with Haakon and Mette-Marit, which I've mentioned in (the 3 quoted) post 120 in the ''Republic or Monarchy'' thread.

7. But all that being said, they have given a good impression lately, and their new PR people have (so far) done a good job.



I think I was very clear and detailed in both post 299 and in the ''Republic or Monarchy'' thread. And I hope the 7 points above will help you understand the Norwegian situation better.
Could you provide a link to the "Republic of Monarchy" thread? I would love to read this.

Read this 3-quoted post about the CP couple:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post2020799

And if you want to read about the personal popularity of Norway's 3 monarchs, then you can read posts 116/117/118 in the same thread. And read post 110 (also in the same thread) if you want to see all the polls on the monarchy under Harald V.

BTW, be aware that I suffer from dyslexia, so my writing in those long posts is not the best, but my English writing is better than it was last year.

Haakon gave a short press briefing in Tromsø today:

NRK article with quotes translated by me:
https://www.nrk.no/norge/kronprinsen...ger-1.13791647
Quote:
Crown Prince Haakon assures to NRK on Thursday afternoon that the Crown Princess is doing well.

''It goes well, but she needs some days to recover.

"She is very sorry that she is not here today, because this is one of the things we does, which we most appreciate," said the Crown Prince.

''Probably it's easy to treat and she'll be fine again in a few days. She expects to be back soon for the weekend,'' says the Crown Prince to NRK.
Nordlys article with 3 quotes translated by me:
https://www.nordlys.no/nyheter/konge.../s/5-34-741010
Quote:
Three weeks ago, Ann Karina Sogge in the Church City Mission in Tromsø received a happy message from the court. Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit had invited 80 people to gjestebud (dinner) in Tromsø. On Thursday the crown prince arrived in Tromsø. The Crown Princess had to stay at home due to illness.
Quote:
The CP couple have previously hosted the gjestebud at Skaugum.

"This is a tradition we've been doing since 2004, when it was a concept with gjestebud in connection with TV-aksjonen (The TV Campaign/Auction). We have done it at Skaugum since then, says the Crown Prince.

The Crown Prince says that one of the reasons that the CP couple broke with tradition of a gjestebud at Skaugum was that they wanted to try something new.

"It is very exciting to move the gjestebud to Tromsø this year, in collaboration with the incredible fine organization that the Church City Mission in Tromsø is. They do so much fine work here in the city. I've been looking forward to this evening,'' he says.

''The Gjestebuds are always very nice evenings, both with human meetings and good programs where we talk about important topics. We will talk about how it is to have some challenges in life that makes everyday life difficult and how we as society shall make the best possible effort to make it better,'' he says.
Quote:
Q: How has the Crown Prince's stay in Tromsø been so far?

A: "It's been good, I'm very fond of the city and the area around here. I have been here many times before. It's amazingly nice and fun to be here in mørketida (the dark time in the north).

Well, as iceflower wrote, The Crown Prince Regent attended the 75th anniversary of the heavy water sabotage operation at Vemork today, February 28.

NRK article with video - google translation and some quotes translated by me:
– Dette var spesielt dyktige mennesker - NRK - translation
Quote:
RJUKAN (NRK): On the day 75 years after the sabotage campaign against the heavy water production at Vemork on Rjukan, Crown Prince Haakon tried himself on parts of the trip.

When the sabotage campaign took place in 1943, there were 2°. Today there were -20° and nine seconds of wind.

"It was a bit fresh, yes, but we had good equipment and we were not out for so long. Those who carried out the action were three for months, so what we did today was probably relatively easy,'' says Crown Prince Haakon to NRK after the trip.
NTB article from Nettavisen with google translation and some quotes translated by me:
Her går kronprinsen i sabotørenes fotspor - NTB/Nettavisen - translation
Quote:
Crown Prince Haakon follows the sabotage tracks on the 75th anniversary of the heavy water action at Vemork.

Operation Gunnerside, as it was called, was the sabotage campaign against Norsk Hydro's plant at Rjukan in Telemark on February 28, 1943. Filmed several times and most recently for an expensive TV series by NRK, it is among the most famous of its kind from World War II.

On Wednesday morning, the Crown Prince and his people at Rjukan by helicopter, and at 13 o'clock they are in the process of carrying out parts of the sabotage attack route, reports Rjukan Arbeiderblad.
VG article with video - some quotes translated by me:
Kronprinsen i sabotørenes fotspor 75 år etter - VG
Quote:
"It was a dramatic story and amazingly impressive that they managed it. They managed to sneak in and not be discovered until they were in the basement where the production of heavy water was going on, managed to burst the explosives, blow it up and retreat without any shots being fired, and all survived and managed to get away. So it's a success story, which also has a high star internationally,'' said Crown Prince Hakon to the press as he finished the day's trip on skis and foot in the snow.
I can't add google translations on VG articles, so use your own to read more of what the CP regent said.
