I have to admit I didn't care for Mabel at first when the only thing I knew about her was what the press reported (shady background/friends), but here is a lady, like Tessy in Lux, who has taken her position and done something with it. With all the hard work she has been doing she's now one of my favorite royal ladies.
because I agree.
Mabel is basically everything I wish Mette-Marit became: someone who had some flaws/regrets and fucked up majorly a couple of times because they're a normal human being and young human beings sometimes do dumb shit....and most don't have 'the palace' to 'bury' it for them. But then they decided they wanted something different. Someone put the past behind them, learned from it, moved on and who grew and matured into a great role model who wants to do something good and uses their privileged position to do meaningful things in the community.
Mabel became everything I wished Mette-Marit would when she first got married.
