The world’s coolest Royals
You probably know a lot about the British royal family, and you might have even heard about Sweden’s sexy monarchs, but how much do you know about the Norwegian royal family? Well, listen up, because they’re awesome.
1) When King Harald risked it all for romance.
The head of the Norwegian royal family is King Harald V, 80, who ascended the throne in 1991, and his wife, Queen Sonja, 79. Their marriage in 1968 caused controversy because Sonja, the daughter of a clothing merchant, was a commoner. According to the official House of Norway website, Sonja had a degree in dressmaking and tailoring and dated Harald in secret for nine years before they were given permission to marry. Apparently, Harald told his father, King Olav V, that if he couldn’t marry Sonja he would never marry at all, leaving their line without an heir.
