1) her turbulent teenage/young adult years and involvement with drugs etc. (for which she apologised publicly) as well
as the fact she became a single mother at a very young age and raised her son alone until she met CP Haakon are no secret.
2) the Princess is also known for her close contacts with wealthy fashion designers and she has often been spotted with the righ & famous without there being any relation to her royal job.
All of this has been published both in the Norwegian as as well as in the international press.
So, if there now is a statement (and I quote from the link you provided here):
" “Through my longtime work with international health issues, I have seen the great damage that sexual assault does to children and women,” Crown Princess Mette-Marit stated. “We all share responsibility to fight sexual assault and support victims, and I want to express my deep sympathy and solidarity with the victims of the assaults Jeffrey Epstein has carried out.” .
Once again: for a person who due to own personal experience knows how vulnerable youngsters are one would certainly have expected the princess to do her homework and google this person. Even at that time most of us already were fully aware of his horrible reputation!
