The police are getting ready for the wedding
On Thursday there was a heavy police presence in Geiranger in connection with the planning of this summer's big princess wedding.
A police helicopter landed on a field near Union, and in the car park outside the hotel there were a number of police vehicles.
- The police are on inspection today as part of the planning, confirms Chief of Staff Kenneth Sætre in the Møre and Romsdal police district to TV 2.
 
The police in Møre and Romsdal are providing large crews for the princess wedding. They ask for extra money to cover the costs.
Oslo Police District sends four police motorcycles to the wedding weekend. Local police fear traffic chaos, and believe that motorbikes are important for emergency preparedness in order to arrive quickly if something unexpected happens.
The plan is for Nasjonale Bistandsressurser to help with a helicopter for monitoring from the air, and personnel and dogs from the bomb squad. The police district has also asked the Coast Guard for assistance.
The police have applied for airspace restrictions from Friday 30 August at 06.00 until the night of Monday 2 September for the center of Geiranger in order to control helicopter, small aircraft and drone activity over the area. The Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority approves the application and creates the restricted area as requested.

Märtha Louise said also that it was the press that had invented the boycott.
- I have said that I will not comment more on articles and the like, that is what we are not supposed to do. I have never said that I will boycott the press or not talk to them, said Märtha. It was you (the press) who came up with the boycott...

Boycott the press? - Nah, that would have meant suffocating themselves.

There is a much used saying in Danish, which roughly translates to: You take a stand until you change your mind. (Man har et standpunkt til man tager et nyt.)
I have no idea what that saying suddenly popped up in my mind. - Must be the weather...

Would this be the first time in Norway's history that a privately-paid family or social event (whether for the royal family or another prominent family) has required this degree of publicly-funded security?
 
Märtha Louise and Durek arrived yesterday to Geiranger. Today the couple was at Hotel Union, where the upcoming wedding will take place.
Are you looking forward to the wedding? asks Dagbladet Durek when they met him at the reception of Hotel Union in Geiranger.
- Of course, I'm gonna marry the woman of my dreams.
In a closed room on the first floor of the traditional hotel, built in 1891, the bride and groom and several others were gathered around a meeting table. They smile and laugh as they go through papers.
A TV team was present for large parts of the meeting.
 
Nettavisen's royal house expert Tove Taalesen:
Märtha and Durek's royal wedding is a three day celebration. And the guests apparently have to pay for both travel and accommodation themselves. Is it really reasonable to expect the invited guests to spend tens of thousands of crowns to celebrate love?
We don't know much. But we know some things. At the "get to know each other" party, guests must dress "sexy and cool". It isn't typical for a Norwegian wedding, and it will be exciting if it means bare stomach, deep necklines, open shirts or lacquer and leather, I have no idea what this dress code means.
If rumors are to be believed, the guests have been emphatically asked not to wear white, all black, all pink and all types of gold dresses at the actual wedding party. And it has to be a ball gown. Not all people have ball gowns hanging in their closets, so this will also be expensive for the guests.
 
VG has contacted the royal houses in Sweden and Denmark, who will not comment on anything in connection with the Märtha and Durek wedding.
- It will be complete chaos. I think it will be a miserable business, because it will be destroyed by chaos, say Kjetil Sørensen and his son Haakon Theim Sørensen, who run a souvenir shop in the center of Geiranger, 100 meters below Hotel Union.
They state that there are around 150 parking spaces in the area in total, and around 40 tourist buses that regularly drive through Geiranger - a village that normally has just over 200 inhabitants.

This coming Monday, the bride and groom are inviting their inner circle to the launch of their specially made wedding drink.
"In collaboration with Oslo Håndverksdestilleri and Fentimans, Märtha Louise and Durek Verrett have the pleasure of inviting you to the launch of their specially made wedding drink", is written in the invitation.
They will present their own unique gin which they have made especially for the wedding in Geiranger.
