Mette-Marit’s story told to Thai readers

The story of Norway’s beloved Crown Princess Mette-Marit has now been printed in Thai language again, now as a pocket book titled “Mette-Marit… Chaoying Phu Plick Chom Prawatisart” (Mette-Marit… The Woman Who Changes the History) after having been published earlier as series in a popular Thai biweekly women’s magazine ‘Ploy Gam Petch’.
     The story of a commoner and a single mother who has become the crown princess of Norway is compiled and translated into Thai by Bangkok-based Danish journalist Gregers Møller and Thai writer Phaisan Nangnoi, based on the book “Mette-Marit Prinsesse mot alle odds” by Håvard Melnæs.
     The book covers the childhood and teenage life of the Norwegian Cinderella, Miss Mette-Marit Tjessem Høiby, through to the royal wedding between her and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon in August 2001, as well as stories about people around her along the way. In the Thai edition, the story about the birth of the royal baby of Mette-Marit and Prince Haakon, HRH Princess Ingrid Alexandra, on January 21 this year was added as the last chapter of the book.
     “Mette-Marit… Chaoying Phu Plick Chom Prawatisart” is published by Srisara Co., Ltd., which is also the publisher of Ploy Gam Petch magazine. The book is edited by Chulita Areepipatkul. The release of the book in April 2004 is coincidental with the planning of the official visit to Thailand by the Norwegian crown prince and princess on November 22 this year.
