Mette-Marit (49) has to withdraw again. Almost five years ago, the Norwegian Crown Princess announced that she was suffering from pulmonary fibrosis. This disease is incurable, which is why the wife of Haakon (49) has had to go through health ups and downs for years. For this reason, the princess is also often and quickly exhausted and cannot participate in every activity. That’s why Mette-Marit now canceled royal visits on her birthday.

On her 50th anniversary, Mette-Marit and her husband were to attend the opening of an elementary school and attend college. But although the Crown Princess had something to celebrate, she did not appear at the event with her loved one. “The visit to the Kautokeino school is part of the crown prince couple’s trips to Norway in connection with the 50th birthday,” reads a post on the official Instagram-Account of the royals. “The Crown Princess Mette-Marit also traveled to Finnmark, but unfortunately she was ill and could not attend the visits.”is the explanation for their absence.

Even if Mette-Marit has to cancel an appointment because of her illness from time to time, she will soon be seen elsewhere: She and her husband should shoot their own documentary! This was reported by the Norwegian magazine See and hear and the Court also confirmed this information. However, it is still unclear when the series will be broadcast.
