September 18
Norwegian and Swedish royal family members got together on Gotland
Swedish Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar spent some late summer days on Gotland in the Baltic Sea together with Norwegian Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Ingrid Alexandra. The Scandinavian heirs to the throne keep in close contact with each other. The Swedish Crown Princess family enjoyed spending time with their Norwegian friends and relatives, as well as showing them this unique part of Sweden.

I don’t know MM’s height but it’s my understanding that neither Victoria or Daniel are particularly tall.

Oh wow, how nice this is.  I can almost stomach MM in this context!

A reason I always like Mette-Marit is because others (royals, dignitaries, 'civilian') seem very confortable around her. Mathilde of Belgium has this same quality.

What is the story behind you meeting her?  I'd be interested to hear how/why and what she was like!  (If you've already posted that before I joined the board, I won't be offended if you just direct me to the thread!)

MM may be a failure as a Crownprincess, but she's a good mother and I think a fun person to go out together.

Sometimes I believe she's very unsure of herself and doesn't really know what to do with her role. I think she doesn't like being in the spotlight and would prefer reading stories to children instead of going to a state dinner.

Sorry but if she doesn’t like being in the spotlight, she shouldn’t have married a prince, more so a “crown prince”. She knew what she was getting herself into.

I would say though that I believe it’s not the Royal status per se that she was attracted to but the “life of leisure” marrying a wealthy person would bring. After all wasn’t she a struggling single mother waitress when she met Haakon the 2nd time?

Ingrid really is in that age when the phone is permanently glued to her hand Tongue Only 4 months until her 18th... wonder how they will mark it, and what privacy she is afforded...considering her mother is hardly public, I suppose the press cant wait for a young and pretty royal to fill the more shallow parts of royal life (what she is wearing, who she is seeing etc)

Gotland really dont need a filter, it such a beautiful place.

As MM has no problem with private massive events once she is interested in the topic and she can jet around the world to attend them I would say that shyness is not her (main) problem, but work shyness. She seems to be nice enough privately but sadly she seems to be self-centered as well (she lets her 80+ year old in-laws down as well as her husband).

She is very lucky that ML is her sister-in-law and not someone ambitious like Sofia in Sweden, because then the contrast would be very visibile. At the moment Harald and Sonia are doing a fantastic job with good approval rates, her problems will start when she is acutally Queen and part of running the show.

In today's society less and less people will be happy with the concept that the highest position in a country is determined by birth rather than open to everyone. As a monarch you can prevent these line of thoughts a bit when you are doing a great job and you are likeable. But that involves work. Turning up in little house in the parie wardrobe twice a year will not be sufficient to keep the Norwegians happy and she might be ill, but is never ill enough to do fun events she is interested in, so that excuse is lame, too.

MM strikes me as someone who might suffer from major depression and anxiety.

I have a chronic illness and haven't unfortunately been able to work for 11 years now. When I have the energy and I'm feeling well, I do all kinds of fun stuff. In between those moments I'm at home feeling unwell but no one rarely sees that.
So for the outside world it might seem that I'm lazy, just slouching at home watching movies and then (occasionally) taking short trips somewhere or going shopping, going for a coffee etc.
Just because I don't work and probably never will be able to do that anymore, I hope no one wants to take my fun days away from me. The mental energy I get from them, is the strenght that carries me over the bad periods, even though the fun days often drain me too.

I know MM wasn't working to her full potential even before she got ill but the situation is different now. I don't think she should have to give up everything, just because she can't work like she "should".

MM never really worked before, often being caught in her lies to excuse her behavior /absence. Why people expect she works now...
