It is always said that the most endearing days of the year that make so many people around the world happy are also the most difficult for those with mental health problems, especially those with a tendency to depression. Royalty is not without its most terrible tragedies and we are saddened today that the Norwegian royal family has been beaten by the suicide of one of their own on Christmas Day.
It happened just on the happy day that Princess Marta Luisa of Norway finally attended the first official act with her boyfriend, the famous shaman Durek Verret, on the occasion of the Christmas mass. Nothing foreshadowed then the hard blow that moments later they would have to face: the family received the devastating news that the ex-husband of the princess, Ari Behn, had killed herself at 47.
The representative of the controversial writer Geir Hakonsund was in charge of breaking the news: “With much sadness in our hearts, we announce that Ari Behn has taken his own life. We ask for respect for our privacy in the days ahead.”
Moments later, Kings Harald and Sonia of Norway issued a statement communicating their sadness and thus speaking of the son-in-law who gave them so many headaches in the past: “Ari was an important part of our family for many years and we keep warm and affectionate memories of the. We appreciate having met you. We are sorry that our grandchildren have lost their beloved father and we feel deep compassion for their parents and siblings.”
Undoubtedly, the hardest hit by this terrible tragedy are the granddaughters of the kings, the teenage daughters of the princess and the writer, Maud Angelica, 16 years old; Emma Tallulah, 14, and Leah Isadora, 11, for whom Christmas day will be marked with this terrible memory for the rest of their lives.
Princess Marta Luisa and Ari Behn were married on May 24, 2002 at the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway. Her liaison was attended by many members of European royalty such as Queen Margaret of Denmark, Prince Edward of England, Sophie Rhys-Jones, William and Maxima of the Netherlands, including the now King Philip VI of Spain.
Their divorce occurred in 2016, first in the Norwegian royal family in two centuries. After their divorce, Ari Behn wrote Inferno, a book in which she recognized the depression she suffered from her separation from the princess.
