Norwegian Se & Hør is not claiming that Mette-Marit is pregnant, but they’re certainly presenting some things that may make it sound like it.
Mette-Marit was absent from the Greek wedding on Wednesday. She was on the guest list, leading Billed Bladet to write about her attendance in a pre-written article about the happy wedding, but did not show up for the wedding. Haakon represented the Norwegian royal family on his own.
Se & Hør asked the people in charge of the Greek arrangement, who said they’d been told that acute illness had put a stopper to her travel plans. (The Norwegian royal court did not comment at all, apart from saying that the wedding was a private event, and that they did not comment on the private events.)
At the same time, Se & Hør has a picture of Mette-Marit celebrating her birthday on last Sunday. The kicker here is that she has pulled out an old maternity dress that she allegedly last wore, photographed by the press, when she was pregnant with Ingrid Alexandra seven years ago.
In the picture, there is about as much bump in the stomach area as there currently is with Mary – who is pregnant with twins.
It could just be that this is a case of Mette-Marit’s fear of flying, wanting to be home with the children for the mid-week when they’re going to school/nursery school and cannot accompany them, or that she might start a new semester of her own education.
Either way, should Se & Hør be right in their insinuations – we’ll probably find out soon.
