Earlier this year, Durek revealed that “asked King Harald” from Norway the hand of the princess, but he had not yet proposed to her because “they weren’t in a hurry” for getting married

In an interview in Billed Bladet he said that he “does things in a respectful way” adding: “I’m very old-fashioned in the way I do things. So I sat down with King Harald and Queen Sonja and asked for their daughter’s hand in marriage. If they had told me no, I wouldn’t have gone ahead.”

The princess was married to the Norwegian writer Ari Behn between 2002 and 2017, when they divorced, and with him she had three daughters: Maud Angelica, 19 years old; Leah Isadora, 17, and Emma Tallulah, 13.

“They said it was my fault and Durek’s fault, that if it hadn’t been for him, this wouldn’t have happened. I was so lucky to have the support of Durek and my family and friends around us, but it’s a void. Suddenly, I was a single mother, which is a very different horse and, of course, the pain, the anger, the self-pity, the sadness of never seeing him again… it’s devastating.”explained the princess.
