Terrible news! I was neutral about her but her work ethic really annoyed me. Now I understand and feel so so sorry for her and her family. Praying for them and really hoping she will live many more happy years.

I really hope she stops smoking now and lives a more healthier life-style: stops going to those posh/jet-set parties all over the world (I belive those circles are not healthy and full of bad habits), eats well and enjoys nature and her family. Cronic disease is horrible but there is a few steps she can take to improve and ease her day-life.

I watched the interview even if the English subtitles didnít work for me. She is very brave indeed, the pain and emotion she has been going through were clearly noticeable in her eyes. I had never heard about the disease, although she has the best healthcare possible, the prognosis is very bad. She is only 45, and a life expectancy of (optimistically speaking) 10 years is still a devastating prospect.

This is devastating. The possibility of life ending in your mid 50ís is tragic.

Just awful for her and the family - my father died young and I have never got over it really - without realizing how fragile I feel sometimes I just cry - the grief is awful and it comes on with no warning - one moment I seem - to others - fine - and then the tears just pour down my face and I am devastated and bereft . . . I hope her family finds a way to go forward in the best way they can . .

I am very sorry to hear that. I am sure though that she will receive best possible care, I read somewhere that the disease is progressing slowly in her case and that a lung transplant would be possible. So hopefully it is not as bad as it sounds now.

The question for me is, who will replace MM in her sick times. Haakon's parents aren't getting younger. Mšrtha is happy with her life. Will it be Ingrid Alexandra?

IA is far too young. I would assume that Haakon will just manage on his own until IA finishes university.

That would be wise.   ML can step in as need to fill the time between when MM steps down completely and when IA is say 25 (a good age in my mind to start full-time royal duties for any heir or heir to the heir).   Gives IA plenty of time for university (undergrad and grad school if desired) and maybe an embassy internship and/or military training (not that any heir should be encouraged to be active duty because they will never be deployed but they should have an understanding).

Did they say anything in the interview about her prognosis? In German TV they said depending what she has, she might have a rather normal life expectancy, can be treated to slow down the process or she can have a lung transplant. All not nice things but also that sounds hopeful.

Once ML's kids are bigger, I'd expect her to fill in. I hope they don't rely too early on IA.

A couple of days later and I am still pretty shocked at this news. Reading that this is sometimes tied to autoimmune issues makes a lot of sense in Mette Marits case. Her years of health issues always sort of had the pattern of someone suffering from an undiagnosed (or unacknowledged publicly) autoimmune disease. I hope she is granted many many years still for the sake of IA especially. That young girl is going to have a lot on her shoulders as a result of this.

       The average life expectancy is 3 to 5 years. Some studies put it at 2.5 years. She is younger than the avg age of diagnosis and some do manage to hold on for a long time but if there is an autoimmune aspect for Mette-Marit I doubt that helps her chances. Lung transplants can help but sadly only 51% of patients that get those are alive after 5 years. If it turns out there is an autoimmune aspect as well then I think this is  a situation where she will be lucky to see her younger two grow up. It isnít nice to think of but this is a terminal illness and it is an terrible  way to go. I really hope she is one of the flukes who has a decade of more ahead where she can be there for her kids and have some quality of life.

Like with cystic fibrosis, there is a quite a spectrum from moderate and quite manageable to very severe and very life changing/shortening. We have no way of knowing how severe MM's case is and can only hope she falls into the less severe cases, that can be managed with medication. In such a case her life expectancy would not be that much shorter than normal. Treatment improves as research finds new information and possibilities, so all the reason to get your hopes up.
