Re: Crown Prince Olav and Princess Märtha
King Olav did the same thing to his son Harold and Sonya, they had to wait 9 years before marrying.
Especially knowing of King Olav's wait, I am surprised he did the same to his son.
I believe that the reason for King Olav's reluctance was the fact that Sonja was the daughter of a merchant. I think he wanted Harald to marry a Princess, which is what he himself had done.
