Harald (born 1937) and Sonja (born 1937) dated for nine years before they were allowed to marry in 1968. They had two children: Martha Louise (born 1971) and Haakon (born 1973).
Haakon married single mother Mette-Marit Tjessem Høiby (born 1973) in August 2001. Mette-Marit already had a son, Marius (born 1997), and had a troubled past. While their engagement was met with criticism, Mette-Marit has become one of the most beloved members of the Royal Family through her hard work and dedication. Haakon and Mette had two children: Ingrid Alexandra (born 2004) and Sverre Magnus (born 2005).
Martha Louise married Ari Behn (born 1972) in 2002 and they have three daughters: Maud Angelica (2003), Leah Isadora (born 2005), and Emma Tallulah (born 2008).
Astrid (born 1932) is the second of three children born to King Olav V (born 1903; died 1991) and Crown Princess Martha (born 1901; died 1954). Astrid married Johan Ferner (born 1927) in 1961 and they had five children: Cathrine (born 1962), Benedikte (born 1963), Alexander (born 1965), Elisabeth (born 1969), and Carl-Christian (born 1972). Because of her marriage to a commoner, Astrid and her children are not in line to the throne.
