English Royal House article about yesterday's engagements: Crown Prince in New York - The Royal House of Norway
The 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly is underway, and the high-level week that kicks off the session is the most important week on the UN calendar. Many countries are represented at the highest level, and a large number of meetings, conferences and receptions are being held.

Crown Prince Haakon has a full agenda this week, with a special emphasis on sound management of the oceans, seas and marine resources and on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

BTW: Prime Minister Erna Solberg said to the Norwegian media that it was very benefittary for Norway's candidacy for a seat in the UN Security Council in 2021-22 to have the Crown Prince on the team.
The PM also said (humorously) that it was good for Haakon to campaign for something, since he is not allowed to do that at home (politically, she meant).

English version of the Royal House article: Managing the oceans - The Royal House of Norway
Norway has taken a leading role in international efforts to promote sound, evidence-based management of the oceans. The objective is to expand understanding of the major role that the oceans can play in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of eradicating hunger and poverty – provided that there is a good balance between conservation and sustainable harvesting.

Crown Prince Haakon stressed precisely this today when he spoke at the UN Global Compact workshop “The Ocean Retreat”:

''Estimates show that we will be about 10 billion people on the planet by 2050. 10 billion people will need food, energy and means of transport. Many of our future solutions to these challenges lie in the ocean. But all this depends on our ability to manage our oceans sustainably today.

According to the OECD, the ocean economy alone could create 40 million jobs globally by 2030. Unleashing the tremendous, untapped potential of our oceans is key to reaching our Sustainable Development Goals.

But, unless we take steps to safeguard the marine environment, we will not be able to harvest the wealth of the ocean,'' the Crown Prince stated.

English Royal House article about the latest events: A soccer tournament to change the world - The Royal House of Norway
A women's soccer tournament is helping to shine a spotlight on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in New York City. Each team champions one of the SDGs - and their goals reach far beyond the soccer field.

Each year during the United Nations’ high-level week, the teams that have qualified to compete in the Global Goals World Cup convene for a tournament. These players have already carried out wide-ranging efforts to promote their selected SDG. They might have collected donations for the local school, demonstrated for measures to mitigate climate change, or a myriad other activities to help achieve their goal.

English Royal House article with video: Why I believe in a brighter future - The Royal House of Norway
“Development and Human Progress: Why I believe in a brighter future” was the title of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon’s lecture at the International Conference on Sustainable Development at Columbia University in New York City.

First he took the audience back in time for a brief perspective on everything humankind has achieved up to now, which is a great deal. Despite the impression given by the media, the world has made enormous advances in key areas such as poverty, education, health and life expectancy.

Well, this was it for CP Haakon in New York.
And the CP-Couple's ''good period'' when it comes to how they are portrayed in the Norwegian media (which I wrote about in this post) seams to continue.
Because, as I've written in other threads, Haakon/MM's UN engagements are usually criticized by commentators as an interference in pollitics. - But this time, nothing at all!
Why? Well, although the CP-Couple's personal popularity has plummeted after the media started with a more critical coverage of them in 2013, the support for the institution of the monarchy has gone from strong to stronger. - And therefore, the television/newspaper commentators have probably found out that there is no point in continuing, at least not when it comes to stuff like this.

By that one can see that this criticism has nothing to do with "public opinion", but a rather orchestered media campaign to direct/ guide public opinion in a certain direction :whistling:

If I have correctly interpreted Royal Norway's post, the guidance points in the other direction: the media is guided by the public's opinion of the monarchy, which I am not sure is beneficial for the public, the media, or the monarchy.

No, for me this sentence...


"Well, although the CP-Couple's personal popularity has plummeted after the media started with a more critical coverage of them in 2013, the support for the institution of the monarchy has gone from strong to stronger"


....leads me to the conclusion the other way round! And it shows how manipulated people are (by the media) these days.
 
:previous: Well, it's quite simple, you know:
The CP-Couple started to socialise more and more with wealthy people, celebrities and Labour politicians. - And it didn't make it better that Haakon (in interwievs) started sounding like a politician himself.

So, what happened?
1. The egalitarian Norwegian media didn't like it, so they started criticising them in 2013, which then lead to their personal popularity going down hill.
2. Haakon/MM responded with taking their children out of the public school in 2014, and opted to spend parts of their 2015 summer-holiday with some rich-people on their yacht, which of course only intensified the criticism.

But as I wrote in post 99, which both of you referred to, the support for the institution of the monarchy has (at the same time) gone from strong to stronger.
Why? Well, as I've written in other threads: Due to the King's enormous personal popularity, which (although always high) has gone through the roof since his 70th birthday in 2007 - and unpopular politicians.

Yes, it is. And your post shows me I got you perfectly right. It´s just our conclusions might differ!
Let alone I also would never allow "the media" ot anybody else to dictate what friends I socialise with and where and with whom not, to what school I would send my kids etc.
 
:previous: I've actually come very close to defending the CP-Couple when it comes to the school stuff in this post.
And I have nothing personally against Ingrid going to a private international-school, or the CP-Family holidaying with wealthy friends on luxury-yachts (although it's very un-Norwegian).
My problem is the criticism it leads to. - And the CP-Couple knows how the Norwegian media, commentators, politicians and people are like, so they should know better. 😄😄

I don't know! - Her last engagement was when she attended the funeral of Kofi Annan on September 13th, and I know that she and Prime Minister Erna Solberg will hand ut this year’s ''Nordic Council prizes'' at the Oslo Opera House on October 30th (not in the official calender yet).
But she has been quite busy this year, and we must remember that she struggles with some health-related issues, including dizziness.

Thank you ROYAL NORWAY!

I just thought maybe there was some official announcement and I miss it.

Well, but that necessarily doesn´t mean you betray your own convictions and just give in....!
