The attendance of Crown Princess Victoria to the funeral was planned, however Princess Estelle fractured a leg after having a fall when skiing during a family holiday in the Italian Alps. The Crown Princess preferred to be beside Princess Estelle and thereby, Prince Daniel attended the funeral alone. The fracture is on the shinbone, and the leg is in plaster. Princess Estelle is otherwise fine.

  3. Just heard the bravest 16 old hold an fantastic speech to her dad. The hole of Norway are crying. Word can not express how we feel after those words. It was an amazing speech full of heartache, hurt and lots and lots of love. And an uplifting speech for all who struggle with mental health. This speech will save lives are what we are hearing from experts. My heart is bleeding for these 3 girls.

  9. It was a heartbreaking yet a beautiful ceremony. Ari Behn was a very creative man and it was moving to see the tributes to his artistic sensibilities including Maud’s drawing and the touches of pink all around (one of his favourite colours).

  11. such a sad day for all of them.
    Maud was soooo brave, holding a speech about her father. I was reading a german translation, she chose so wonderful, heart touching words, you can feel the love in every word.

    Her most important sentence: There is always another solution. There is always somebody who loves you.

    I really cried when I was reading her words.

    The king holding Märtha is a lovely picture.

    Ari Behn, may you rest in peace now, in light and no darkness any more.

  15. Maud spoke with such eloquence, straight from the heart. At 16 such a tender age with such inner strength holding her composure, such dignity and grace. Her eulogy was very moving and thought provoking. The portrait of her father that she did was beautiful. Her words were filled with love and warmth for her father, their loss is indescribable. If her words can help one person, then out of this tragedy maybe their is hope for another sufferer, to help pull them out of the depths of darkness. Mental illness can strike any one of us, no one is immune. It is so sad that Ari thought this was the only way out. Such a very sad loss and waste of life. RIP Ari Behn, at peace.

  17. Especially the last photo is heartbreaking! Losing a parent this way is traumatic. They will need a lot of protection now, also from public, to process the trauma.
