Dear Princess. Martha Louise, Mette Marit, Ragnhild, Victoria, Mary, Elizabeth, Madeleine, Lilian and Astrid....

and all the rest of beautiful you.

I am another simple artist in the world of performing arts, and my greatest passion is curiosity

and shearing of the things I learn. I am perhaps a humble journalist with an artistic expression.

I am at the bridge of a new curiosity, namely you your highness, the princess. I want to

understand as much as I can, about your role towards yourself and your people, toward your

history of myth, about the things you do and then the things media tells us, your ideas of the

future, your goals as a princess and your wishes for yourself…. Like a protrait I suppose.

Knowing the fact that I am a commoner, with little political or royal status, I imagine it will

take some time before I will have the “possibility” to meet you in person. So I decide to

start my project today, with the hopes and wishes, that some of you can join me later, and

help me tell the people; what it is all about, to be a princess today. Untill then, I will keep

you posted on this blogg, and keep you informed about my discoveries.

Warm greeting and love, Yours faithfully, Rudi Skotheim Jensen

With the last months unbearable tense events concerning Madeleine, and NOW, her sister, on the brinks of stepping into those royal ranks of marriage, the plot is thickening…. How do you sleep at night, whom can you trust?

I have curiously devoted time, God knows why -if such a being exists, if so, he must be ludicrous in creating me. But time is however being devoted to this, singular quest called princesses. I tried to put my fingers on it now for some time, but alas, they, are randomly circling all part of the skies, very much like a seagull drunk on absinthe.
Now, I have handled my depression with a selection of movies, princess movies. After suffering through bad acting though an entertaining plot in Disney’s “Enchanted”, I learned that first sighted love, have stopped existing in films. And there we are….. This, should hopefully give reality and future generations a chance of less frustration.

BUT, True loves kiss, how does one find it? – If you are, and once again please imagine yourself, a princess. How can you be sure that the man you are dating is not holding your hand because of the exotic idea, entitled prince? Something tremendous is hiding in that shadow. I am a man, I know how this works, in early years, we are far from the cleanest of souls and will bend easily for profit.

So, princes, how do you single out the bad ones from the good ones.. Is there a naughty and nice list involved? Do you go under cover?

Yours truly

Public decisions make a princess take decisions publicly.

I find myself returning slightly sooner to the “love case” taking place in Sweden’s capital, the intentionally accounted for. The occasion is rooted in a metro magazine, a column in fact, that has that keen and reflecting eye over the entitled situation, which got me blogging….
Anders Pihlblad, presents some curious and well chosen words on the media reactions. He says; “As the Royal family is our “ideal” family, we are stirred and curious when something un-ideal is taking place. We find this interesting as the Monarchy has lost its political influence, and because of this, there is pretty much only one task left for them to conduct; producing children. This is why, in media, the sex life of the royalties becomes interesting”

Meanwhile in the East. The Indonesian Teen model Manohara, whom married to the Malaysians Princes Tengku Muhammad Fakhry Petra (at the age of 14, -now 18’teen), is inspiring new depths between those old national wounds of Indonesia and Malaysia.
Manohara (meaning “Hart theft”) claims the Malaysian Prince kidnapped her during a pilgrimage, and for nine months abused her in all classical ways possible. Last year she managed to escape with the help of both her mother and the American embassy. When the press published the cover stories, Indonesians started protesting. In Jakarta, it was reported riots outside the Malaysian embassy. Both the Governments have withdrawn politically from the case, and stated that this is a private affair between husband and wife.

In her home country, she publicly appears as the tragic heroine, badly treated by an obsessed prince. While in Malaysia, she is considered the little devil liar, hunting for fame and glory, and orchestrated by her mother.

My point is that, even if the Prince did these things or not, it is now out in the public. Even if Jonas did cheat or not, it is still out in the public, and the public point of view seems to matter a grate deal to royalties as royal decisions are often made to keep the myth of the ideal portrait in harmony. -Which I find tricky, as the ideal of royalty is also quite a myth.

Fredrik V of Denmark-Norway (1746-66) ruled from the bottom of his bottle and was preferably surrounded by prostitutes, -while by doing so. Christian VII of Denmark was known as insane with sadistically preferences, and we are not even getting started on France and Spain in those days…

Returning to Manohara. She is now playing in a famous TV series, about a young woman who is abused by her husband. She is also giving “expensive” lectures, and the documentary about her adoption is running continuously on Indonesian Television. The Prince is not giving any interviews.
