Re: Princess Martha Louise steps back from royal duties
Why isn't she pressed to relinquish her royal title? Just get on with it! Same headache as with Harry. Either you are in or you are out. This half-half royal life does NOT work anno 2022. Parents should be wiser in these matters. Do not spare your (grand)children, spare the institution, SPARE THE NATION! Half-measures never work in the long run.
It's a very long announcement for something that will not mak
e much of a change. I think it was a mistake to include her long commentary on why she thinks alternative treatments, including crystals, are worthwhile. As a PR matter, that just reminded people of what the problem was in the first place. I doubt this will improve the situation, but I suppose the RF is worried that any stronger statement or action would simply provoke Martha Louise and her fiancÚ into a Meghan-and-Harry-style backlash. And I suppose the recent Danish brouhaha also gave them pause.
I thought she wasn't supposed to use her title in business for years now. How is this different from all the other times she wasn't using it for commercial purposes, except for the length of the statement?
The couple has created more headlines and drawn more criticism this summer and fall, especially because of Mr. Verrett's behaviour.

Not much will change, though, as the number of the princess' public engagements on behalf of the royal house has been low for quite some time.
