Tora Uppstrøm Berg, the 21-year-old girl at the centre of the Swedish Royal affair scandal, has admitted times have been tough for her recently.

In April she revealed details to Se og Hør of her one-night stand with Jonas Bergström, now ex-fiancé to Swedish Princess Madeleine. Uppstrøm Berg has been avoiding the Norwegian press until now.

“It’s been a difficult and very challenging time. My family and friends have been my most important support. They’ve taken me out and got managed to make me think about other things, and made my everyday life as bearable as possible,” she tells Dagbladet.

But the ex handball player come photo artist now has other things to think about. Yesterday, she opened her first exhibition with nine other artists at a gallery in her home village of Meråker in Nord-Trøndelag, where she’s been living since news of the affair broke.

“Photography has been my number two (three?) passion after handball. It’s both incredibly fun and unusual to see the pictures hanging on the walls of the gallery together with the other artists’,” she says.

Her pictures were originally scheduled to be part of a larger exhibition in London, but she’d had to cancel because of the scandal.

“The display didn’t happen for me. It couldn’t bear it,” says Uppstrøm Berg.

She’s currently studying photography at the University of Bournemouth.
