Aftenposten spoke with the King at a press meeting in Banska Stiavnica during his visit to Slovakia this week.

According to the paper, HRH was clearly aware many ordinary Norwegians and religious leaders are concerned about the Princess’ views. The King is head of the Norwegian Church.

“As parents, we do not always agree with our children. What is important for us is that we love them,” he said.

Princess Märthe Louise created a stir when she started her commercial Astarte Education School (known as ‘engleskole’ in Norwegian), claiming she can teach people to speak with angels.

Criticism was even harsher when the Princess alleged recently that she could communicate with the dead. Many Norwegians believe she should be stripped of her title.

“She will always be our daughter, with or without her title, so I do not believe it really plays [such] a big role,” said King Harald.
