Strangers planned the kidnapping of prince Haakon, according to a book

A new biography of the Norwegian monarch Harald V, reveals that strangers glided to kidnap to inheriting prince Haakon VII before his “controverted” marriage with princess Mette-Marit.
The book, written by Norwegian journalist Per Egil Hegge, explains that the plans of kidnapping impelled the princes to change themselves together and to simplify the security of both. “Delinquents thought to kidnap to the prince and to use it like change currency to remove to a friend from the jail”, said the author.
The biography, of 495 pages, that left on sale today, also narrates the preoccupation of king Harald, before the future public welcome of the marriage between Haakon and Mette-Marit, due to the past doubtful of this last one.
King Harald, in his conversations with the journalist, old publisher of the Aftenposten newspaper, said that Mette-Marit announced in his second or third visit to Palace, that wished “to tell its past them so that we knew what relying”. “When it finished I asked to him: Something more? No, it answered, that he is everything”, it explains the work
According to a new biography, King Harald "admits that he too had doubts about how the public would receive the news of a marriage between Crown Prince Haakon and a young woman with such an untraditional past. On Mette-Marit's "second or third" visit to the palace she asked to tell everything about herself, so that the king and queen knew what to expect. When she was completely finished, Harald said "We can manage that".

Haakon at an meeting with students taking part in seminars relating to the international student festival in Trondheim, where the opening meeting was at the nobel Peace center in Oslo
. Also present was former PM Kjell Magne Bondevik, and the event was only for invited guests, and it seem the palace has really pis*ed of the press with regulation on when and where they could take pictures, apparantly the press was sent back and forth, and they were not allowed to ask questions

story and pics
Crown Prince Haakon at the opening of the Polar Year, of all places in Oslo, IM oit would have been better to have the norwegian opening in a city actually above the Polar Circle:ermm:

Haakon, Frederik and Victoria are patrons of the Polar Year

Varm åpning av Polaråret i Oslo

Marian, this is how I found the pics. I went to the link and on the left side you'll see it says "Zoeken" then look down at the place where it says "trefwoord" directly under that word is a search box where you enter "International polar year" and then click the blue box to the right that says "zoeken". 3 pages of pics of Haakon and a couple of Prince Albert should come up. Or easier yet if you are better in English like me. You can do this once you go to the link click on English which is in the far upper right corner of the page. Once you do that you will notice the search box on the left side and just type in "International Polar Year" and then press search. Hope this helps!

Prince Haakon looks great. Every day more handsome :blush: . But the more important of it, is the conference he attended about the world weather. This issue is urgent these last days where so many natural disasters happened in the world. So many Tsunamies (the last one in Salomon's Islands), so many earthquakes (Japan, Chile, Mexico, Portugal), so many rains (wherever in the planet)...and so few people speaking about these issues as if all was perfectly normal.

So crownprince Haakon does an excellent job remembering this kind of things, perhaps not to agreeable, but urgent to be solved!

Thanks for the pictures fanletizia. I agree with Vanesa about Haakon doing a great job for an important cause. He is truly my favorite crown prince!
I am agree. I think that the royals now made a excellent work that in others times. And always I think this specially of crown prince Haakon. Is much better to have a monarchy that a Republic. I know because I write this.
Haakon has some time off with his friends

You will most probably see the children on May 17th, national day

Seems Crown Prince Haakon is taking some "men-only" time, he is on a boys trip to Lyngsalpene in Nothern Norway this weekend, Haakon arrived in Lyngen on Saturday as part of 14 people party, and they spent the day walking in the mountains, according to the local papers they should go for another mountain trip today and then return to Oslo. This means Haakon will not run in the 10Km Sentrumsløpet that is in Oslo today and he had been invited to run, and there is quite alot of articles speculating he will take part, but it seems he wont.
