In February this year, Princess Martha Louise of Norway said that she was considering moving to the United States. She then said that the reason was that her boyfriend, the American shaman Durek Verrett, feels badly treated and no longer wants to settle in Norway. This was discussed by the princess in an interview with TV2. Asked in the interview if it is relevant for her to move to the USA, she answered: “Yes, it may be that we end up there eventually.”

Now the princess has confirmed in an interview with the Norwegian newspaper VG that she has decided to move. Princess Martha Louise plans to move to the United States and take her three daughters with her. When she will move is not yet decided but the princess plans to keep her villa in Oslo and says she will visit Norway often even if she moves to the USA. The princess wants to settle in Los Angeles where her boyfriend has lived for many years.

The princess was asked if she was planning to move, to which she replied: “Right now there is Covid and it is difficult to plan, but we plan to move with time. The children will of course join me. We will keep the home in Lommedalen anyway. We must have a home in Norway. We’ll still be here a lot. We can not leave beautiful Norway completely.”

For the second time since the coronavirus pandemic broke out, the princess and Durek Verrett have to spend many months without being together. The two have not seen each other since he left Norway just after Christmas. Princess Martha Louise says: “He is in Los Angeles, and now we do not know when we will see each other again.”

The interview was done to promote a new TV series about the princess that she and her daughters have participated in. The TV series premieres in Norway on April 7th 2021 and it is expected that it will create many headlines in the coming weeks.

Princess Martha Louise is the daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja, and the older sister of Crown Prince Haakon.
