Thanks eya & polyesco!

Well, read about the annual ''TV-aksjonen'' (''The TV Campaign/Auction") in this English Wikipedia article, which this year went to The Church City Mission.

Either the King, Queen, CP Haakon or CP MM are protectors, and this was (as eya said) the reason to why the Crown Princess guested Lindmo (Norway's largest Talk show) on Friday, where she said that: ''Jeg er ikke redd for vanskelige samtaler, og det tror jeg ikke familien min alltid er like fornøyd med.''
Translated to: ''I'm not afraid of difficult conversations, and that, I don't think my family is always as happy with'' (she was referring to Haakon who has previously teased her about it).
Her appearance: Well, as I have said before, interviews are not her strong side, but she made a good impression, I think.

Royal Norway, why do you say, MM was not that good at interviews? To me she always seems to be quite secured and selfassured when being interviewed!

Because she's not known for doing so here in Norway!
She often says ''veldig'' (''very'') all the time, and puts on her usual ''grumpy don't talk to the media face'' when she gets difficult questions about Marius or other things.
But don't get me wrong, she has a warm and folksy personality/appearance, and she made a good impression on Friday (at least IMO).

How fun! Lovely photos; Ingrid Alexandra looks very grown up.

Am I understanding her caption correctly that she's trying/going to try to attempt 52 new sports? What were the first two she tried, because I think it says 47 more to go?

And did someone suggest synchronized swimming in the comments?

Thanks eya!

Well, let's go through the first photo, which seems to have been taken in the great-hall at Skaugum: From left, Bartosz Piasecki (fencer, and sporting-sjef at The Norwegian Fencing Federation - Wikipedia-article), then we have Marte Stokstad (Norwegian programme-host and close friend of The CP-Couple - no English Wikipedia-article about her) and Jan Åge Fjørtoft (former Norwegian footballer and close friend of The CP-Couple - Wikpedia-article).

Hmm, whether she's tried them (the sports) before or not, I don't know. - But think it's more about winning against Marte & Jan Åge.

She wrote: ''Still 1-0 then @martestokstad 😊 Thanks to the Olympic medalist @fektern (she means Piasecki) who met up to pre-Christmas fencing. Jan Åge, you crushed me this time 💪🏻💪🏻 #52sport 47 to go! Done in around 2039 :).''

You mean the first four? We don't know! Not been mentioned in her Instagram account or the media before now.

It's not as if the other parts of Norway are considered to be subtropical

You are right... :) It can be not easy with this illness in Norway. But I meant skiing can make this illness more worse or not?

From what I understood, Mette-Marit has known about her illness for a time--even though the diagnosis was only shared with the public in October.

This year alone, she's been surfing, kayaking, played her annual charity game of football with her family, flew from London to Mexico to South Africa to Estonia (there's another trip I'm forgetting), had a rousing fencing match.

I think she and Haakon and her doctors know if skiing or the cold would exacerbate her illness, and they would have taken precautions ahead of time.

Great video, where Victoria, Daniel and the kids and the norwegian royals promote Generation Pep's "Up and Jump, Sweden! campaign". Obviously done in Åre.

The video at Generation Pep's social media:

"The pepidemic spreads over Sweden and of course the Crown Princess family has also caught it.
The Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar are of course on Up and Jump!
The pepidemic's joy of movement has also crossed the borders and brought along the Norwegian Crown Prince family.
Full speed, play and jump in the snow is a simple and effective way to bring in everyday movement, how do you get into your movement today?"

Generation Pep to Mette-Marit in Instagram
"gen.pep @crownprincessmm Such an honor that you participated in our campaign
And Mette-Marit
crownprincessmm @gen.pep But of course ❤️"

The Palace announced today that CP Haakon is to undergo surgery this morning:

"His Royal Highness The Crown Prince will today, on Monday, March 4, 2019, have a minor surgical intervention for exostosis in the ear canal.
The surgical procedure takes place at Rikshospitalet in Oslo.
As a result of the intervention, the Crown Prince will have a reduced program for the next two weeks."

Thanks, Eya.

Did a quick read-up.
It's a common thing a surgery is done when it's progressed to the stage where it affects hearing and build up of ear-wax with the added risk of infections that entails.

Thanks for the excellent explanation Muhler. It clarified the situation perfectly.

General News and Information about Haakon, Mette-Marit and family

How coincidental - I'm scheduled to have syringing for a similar condition in a couple of weeks time (a procedure I have to have done once a year). I hope Haakon's went smoothly.
