The people of Norway were taken aback when they learned that a single mother, who had lived life to the full, had won the heart of the heir to the throne. Here, for the first time, ten years after a glamorous wedding that transformed her into a Crown Princess, she tells the story of her life.

This TV portrait presents a rare close-up of a royal personage. We share the Crown Princess's daily round, breakfasting with her family, walking the dog and helping her children with their homework. She speaks candidly of her childhood and youthful years, and of the controversy that surrounded her entry into Norway's royal family. She also reveals how difficult it can be for someone not born to or trained for the task, to adapt to life as a royal.

Part 1 comprises an intimate meeting with the Crown Princess and those closest to her.

Widely acclaimed as one of Europe's most beautiful princesses, she has also been commended for her efforts to combat the ravages of HIV and AIDS. We accompany the Crown Princess as she studies, at work, both at home and abroad, and on ceremonial occasions at the Palace. Unflinchingly, she speaks directly to the camera, explaining precisely who she is and what she stands for. Her closest family and friends paint a picture of a spirited young woman who knows her own mind.

Part 2 proves that Norway's Crown Princess is well prepared and equipped to stand up for the goals she has set herself.
