Left-leaning royals alienate their own subjects

May 8, 2014

According to News and Views from Norway:

The outspoken deputy leader of the Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet, FrP), Per Sandberg…claimed the royal couple was too left-leaning.

“The royal couple is on the left of Norwegian politics, especially on environmental, climate, immigration and some questions of values,” Sandberg continued. “I note that Haakon and Mette-Marit act aggressively in public in these relationships.” He referred to a trip the crown princess took to India in 2012, after a gay couple who were friends of Mette-Marit could not get visas in time to collect their twin children born by surrogacy, which is illegal in Norway.
