Princess Martha Louise, daughter of Norway’s King Harald, said on Tuesday that she would no longer officially represent the Norwegian royal family after “many questions regarding my and my fiance’s role”.

The 51-year-old princess, who is fourth in line to the Norwegian throne, got engaged in June to Durek Verret, an American who describes himself on his website as a shaman and a healer.
At least one foundation for which Martha Lewis served as a patron subsequently ended its association with the princess.

“I have decided that at this time I will no longer carry out official duties for the royal family,” she said in a statement issued by the palace, adding that the decision was taken in coordination with her parents “to establish peace around the royal family.” .” The princess will retain her title, but the palace said she had informed the organizations where she still served as patron that she was stepping down from the role.

His younger brother, Crown Prince Haakon, 49, is heir to the throne.

“I am saddened that the princess will no longer represent the royal house,” Harald said at a press conference on the matter. “We agree to disagree,” said the 82-year-old king. “We’ve seen this process from all sides,” added his wife, Queen Sonja. “It was a unanimous decision.” Harald said Verrett “probably thought he could do something without affecting us.” “He must take into account what we stand for,” Sonja said.

The palace statement said the couple would “clarify the distinction between their own activities and those of the royal family” and would not use the title princess or refer to the royals in social media or commercial activities.

Bo Gladits, secretary-general of the Norwegian Rheumatology Association, told Norwegian news agency NTB that it was “a disciplined and wise decision from our sponsor”.

“He solved it on his own initiative, and that’s good,” Gladits told NTB.

Norwegian media have accused Martha Louise and Veret of using her royal title for commercial gain as well as promoting alternative health care methods.

On Instagram, Martha Lewis said, “I believe that alternative methods can be an important complement to established medicine.” According to the statement, Veret, 47, and Martha Louise will not have any titles or represent the Norwegian royal house when they marry. The couple, who have been together since May 2019, will attend family-related events and traditional royal events, according to Norwegian media.

Martha Lewis has three daughters from her first marriage, which ended in 2016 According to Norwegian media, he plans to move with them to California The palace did not say whether Martha Lewis’ change would affect her daughters.

In addition to her royal duties, the princess has written books in which she claims to have communicated with angels.

A poll published by Norway’s Dagbladet newspaper last month found 68% of respondents said they wanted to retain the monarchy. When Norwegian broadcaster NRK asked the same question in 2017, support for the royal house stood at 81%.
