Last year, the Crown Princess Mette-Marit, 45, revealed she was suffering from a life-limiting condition called chronic pulmonary fibrosis, in which scar tissue forms in the lungs, and can cause serious breathing problems.
The mother-of-three released her own statement following the diagnosis where she spoke of her determination to carry on as normal.
She said: ‘Although such a diagnosis in times will limit my life, I’m glad that the disease has been discovered so early.
