unfashionable...?! I think the acceptance of mental health issues has grown enormously in the past 15 or 20 years. And there are millions, everyone on another level, affected worldwide.

Well, as long-time readers of the Norwegian threads will know, I have never shied away from criticizing the CP-Couple when I thought criticism was due. Such as they being friends with a bunch of wealthy people and celebrities or taking their children out of the public school, two things that are not very wise to do as CP-Couple in an egalitarian society like Norway. Or their constant criticism of the Norwegian media's relatively careful coverage of Marius, when it was, in fact, Marius himself who in many cases sought the limelight.

But when it comes to the skiing-thing...weeeell, let's go through the facts.
BTW, to understand any of this, one must have read the two previous pages. And while I don't bother to quote a whole bunch of posts here, be aware that the below stuff is meant as a reply to all the posters that have dealt with this topic, including those who have asked questions, i.e. Prinsara, EvaH & ladongas.


So, I reckon that those unfamiliar with this now have gone back in the thread and there found out that the Crown Princess posted the pictures on Monday the 6th of April - and wrote the following:
''Jeg kom meg til toppen gitt. Whats not to love med Oslopåske :) Husk å ta vare på hverandre og vær 2 meter unna de dere er veldig glad i, men ikke bor sammen med :) og alle andre også.''

Translation by me:
''I got to the top! What's not to love with Oslo Easter :) Remember to take care of each other and be 2 meters away from those you are very fond of, but do not live with :) and everyone else too.''

Which means that they went skiing either on that day (which was the first day of the Norwegian Easter-holiday) or on April 3rd, 4th or 5th (i.e. the Palm-weekend, which is when many normally travel to their winter-cabins and in reality start their holiday).
And yes, that was during the lockdown, which was imposed on March 12th, and which began to be loosened up on April 20th.

But now to the important stuff:
1. The authorities (including the Prime Minister and Health Minister in press conferences and interviews) said and even encouraged people during that period (the lockdown, I mean) to be out in fresh air - as long as one followed what had been stated about social distancing.
2. There was no ban on skiing itself!
3. The CP-family was not spending the night in a cabin or holiday-property outside their own municipality (which until April 20th was the illegal-part).

So what were they doing? Well, they just took a few rounds of skiing at The Wyller Slope in Oslo Winter Park, which closed on the day of the lockdown. This meant that the park was without staff and thus with the lifts closed and that the CP family was there at their own risk. But since they are always being followed by officers from Den kongelige politieskorte (The Royal Police Escort), they would have had people there to help them anyway if, for example, an accident had occurred.
And although one cannot see it in CP MM's Instagram-photos, I know from Norwegian television that a lot of ordinary Norwegians living in or around Oslo (many of whom had probably planned to spend their March-weekends and Easter-holiday at cabins or hotels up in the mountains) have done the same thing (gone skiing in the same park I mean), and started doing it way before the Crown Princess posted the pictures. And I haven't seen or read anything about people not keeping their social distancing while doing it.

So did the CP-family do something wrong? Well, the authorities advised people to not do trips outside your own municipality, but there was no ban as long one didn't spend the night in a cabin or holiday-property (now I'm talking before April 20th). And anyway, it's just a 30-min drive from their main home Skaugum (in Asker municipality) to Oslo Winter Park (in Oslo municipality).

Media-coverage: No criticism at all; I think it was actually seen as a morale boost, which was probably also the intention of CP MM when she posted the photos.

It sounds as if the guidance issued by the authorities left space for interpretation (as other posters observed), but the Crown Prince Couple interpreted it along the same lines as most members of the public did.
