Here is the conclusion to the debate around Crown Prince Haakon’s beard.
The Crown Prince revealed in an interview with Norwegian news channel TV2, that the dispensation for having a beard aboard the vessel, had gone through. Thus, he doesn’t have to shave it off for the occasion.
His wife is someone who is happy about that; in the same interview she chimed in with that she hadn’t given her dispensation for him to rake it off. It would have been quite the interesting scenario if he hadn’t received the dispensation. 😉
Crown Princess Mette-Marit also came out in defense of Haakon’s beard just after he started growing it as well.
A small majority of those who voted in our poll, thought he should have removed the beard.
