Princess Mette-Marit of Norway (49) had to cancel an official appointment for health reasons. The royal family reveals why.

Mette-Marit's chronic illness causes problems

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway is, among other things, patron of the women's center 'Stella' of the Norwegian Red Cross in Oslo. The princess had an official appointment there on Tuesday to mark the tenth anniversary. During the visit, she became progressively worse until she finally had to abandon the meeting with the local volunteers. A shock for everyone involved.

The royal family later announced the reason for this in an Instagram post: The crown princess had her chronic pulmonary fibrosis made trouble again which she was diagnosed with in 2019 . This is an incurable disease that causes scarring of the lung tissue. As a result, Mette-Marit is quickly exhausted, struggles with shortness of breath and malaise. Because of the side effects, the crown princess even had to be taken to Oslo's Rikshospitalet hospital at times.

Feelings of guilt because she cannot keep all appointments

Because of her illness, Crown Princess Mette-Marit can no longer attend as many appointments and official events as she used to. That seems to gnaw at her. Speaking on The Kåss Furuseths podcast in early 2021, she confessed: 'I think I'm a little too embarrassed that I'm sick. I know I'm pretty ashamed of it.' In mid-2022, the wife of Crown Prince Haakon (49) infected with the coronavirus, which is particularly dangerous in combination with her pulmonary fibrosis. It seems the Crown Princess needs to take the time to rest and take care of her health. (result)
