There is alarm in the Scandinavian country after the Royal Palace sent a statement this Thursday informing about the extension of the medical leave of the Princess Mette-Marit, which began last September 13. They announce that she will be away, at least, until the end of the fall holidays (October 3-9): “The crown princess will also be less active in the future and does not have any official events planned for this week or for the fall holidays “.

A report that has caused severe concern in the country, which now eagerly awaits October 13, the date on which the inauguration of the Royal Palace’s riding hall is scheduled to take place with the presence of the kings and princes. Two days later, they should also attend the 18th birthday celebration of Prince Christian of Denmark.

It has been more than a decade since the wife of Haakon de Noruega, who celebrated her 50th birthday in August with a big party, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a degenerative disease that causes scarring of the lung. It is a serious illness that causes respiratory failure, fatigue and pain in muscles and joints. The disease has no cure but can be controlled with medical treatment and oxygen therapies. However, patients often suffer crises in which they are forced to rest completely.
