Princess Märtha Louise of Norway has agreed to stop using the title of Princess in her business activities, the Norwegian Royal Household has announced. The Princess came to this decision after consulting with her family. Princess Märtha Louise will continue to use her title when she is representing the King and in private. In a business setting, she will use her name, Märtha Louise.

Princess Märtha Louise is currently on a tour of workshops with her boyfriend, Durek Verrett called “The Princess and the Shaman.” The workshops promise: “A journey to the mysteries of life, how to get into deeper contact with your inner power and raise awareness so that you bring out the true you no matter where you are in life.”

Princess Märtha Louise is the elder child of King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway. Her younger brother, Haakon is the Crown Prince of Norway. On 24 May 2002, Princess Märtha Louise married author Ari Behn, and they had three daughters together before divorcing in 2017. When she began her own business in 2002, she began paying income tax, and her father issued a royal edict which removed the style of Royal Highness. She retained her place in the line of succession and still carries out some public duties.

Earlier this year, Princess Märtha Louis co-authored a book about being highly sensitive.
