Princess Märtha Louise had to worry about her fiancé Durek Verrett
It was an exciting summer for Princess Märtha Louise, 50, but it ended in a painful period… After announcing her engagement to American shaman Durek Verrett, 47, she celebrated the 18th anniversary of his niece, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, in Oslo. Durek then returned to the United States. Märtha Louise and her three daughters Emma Tallulah, 13, Leah Isadora, 17, and Maud Angelica, 19, celebrated Queen Sonja’s 85th Honor Day on the Royal Ship Norge in early July. But then they received bad news from America: her fiancé had contracted Corona and even had to go to the hospital, as Verrett personally announced on Instagram.
Princess Märtha Louise could do nothing from afar. Thus, despite her worries, she pursues her vacation plans and flies off with her children to Spain for the European Show Jumping Championships. There she encouraged her daughter Emma Tallulah, who failed to qualify for the final. Märtha Louise finally breathed a sigh of relief: according to the Danish magazine “Se og Hør”, Durek was better. After all, the princess and her children had some great vacations in Spain.
