Princess Mette-Marit has gotten ahead of Meghan Markle. While there is speculation about what the Duchess of Sussex will tell Oprah Winfrey on March 7 about her fleeting stint at the court of Elizabeth II, the future queen consort of Norway has confessed how hard it was for her to adapt to her life as a member of the Norwegian royal family.
In a podcast recorded on the occasion of last Valentine’s Day and published this Saturday, Mette-Marit from Norway complained about the enormous pressure she had to endure in the first years of her marriage to him. crown prince haakon and how difficult it was to get used to always being under the media spotlight, an experience that the Duchess of Sussex knows very well.
“There are periods in my life when I still can’t think without wanting to vomit. Above all, the first phase of my life with Haakon, because it was very difficult. Some programs have recently aired images of the royal family in which my beginnings with Haakon appear, and I can not see them ”, Mette-Marit from Norway is sincere in the podcast, broadcast by the public network NRK.
The princess came from a family background as complicated as Meghan Markle’s. Her status as a single mother, her rebellious youth, and the imprisonment of the father of her first child for trafficking cocaine made many Norwegians not consider her a suitable wife for Prince Haakon and made her the talk of the press. Mette-Marit of Norway, however, has no grudge for the attacks she received at the time.
