The Crown Princess seems to complain about privacy only when her beloved firstborn is criticized..

Indeed, the climate last year was different. Even the Norwegian Royal Court had to intervene.

I don´t see any double-standards here! Posting holiday pictures on an instagram feed is their business only. However, filming them and taking secretly photos on their italian holidays without having their permission is the real controversy here....!

I find it hard to believe that MM would favour one child over another. Of course, we don't know her personally to know for sure, but I can't imagine she would have "favourites". She has posted such style photos of IA and Sverre on social media before.

I don't think the previous comments were about MM having 'favorites' over her children. I think it was because last year and the previous years MM have been very vocal about protecting Marius' privacy (of which is normal to every mothers out there) and even the Norwegian Royal Court had to intervene. And now she's posting her photo with Marius' photo as if nothing happened.

But yeah, all is well. Maybe the climate has changed now.

But what the royalfly said was related to my comment and it is true.
The Crown Princess only screams for privacy for her son when the publicity is negative.

See the following articles:

To me it seemed like you were insinuating MM favours Marius over IA and Sverre, so I apologise if I misread your post. I've seen those articles before when they were originally posted here; it appears that I just got the wrong end of what you were trying to say.
Just for the record I think that, whilst it seems a bit hypocritical of MM complaining about privacy but posting a private photo, Marius isn't Haakon's son and thus not a royal and a private citizen, so I also rightly understand why she would complain. But I also think that if Marius wanted to remain private, he wouldn't be mixing with high-profile celebrities in the US and posting photos on a public Instagram with over 10k followers.

No I wasn't insinuating any favoritism among her children.

I was simply stating how hypocritical the Crown Princess is by stating her son is a private figure when he is being criticized or portrayed unfavorably yet does not complain when her son is giving interviews or is collaborating with high profile publications.

I think you understand my views.

Marius needs to make up his mind what he wants a public life (that is subject to criticism) or a private one and stick to it.

Yes I understand your views perfectly now you’ve explained them; even if I did find that statement a little patronising (again apologies if that wasn’t intended, seems I’m not the best at interpreting posts again).

Obviously, Marius is a private citizen and should not concern the Norwegian Royal Court but since she's MM's son, the press just won't leave him alone.

Maybe the climate have changed now following MM's photo with him in Instagram. And he looks handsome too.

Do you truely expect the Crown Princess complaining about her eldest son publicly - even if she disagreed on his "public" activities?!
And do you really expect this family never ever to post photos of Marius on instagram again only because they took their right to complain about the media because they hurt M´s privacy?!
And don´t you see the difference between private material you yourself choose and agree upon to be published (like we all do these days on instagram or facebook) and material other people decide themselves to publish about you or your loved ones?
This is rather a statement than a real question...!

It is a spectacular country they live in, the Norwegians.

No wonder, they walk around in a state of eternal bliss, and don't concern themselves with worldly trivialities, like shoes...

The Norwegian countryside does seem gorgeous indeed. It's been on my bucket list for a long while!
