Princess Märtha Louise of Norway, 36, took the theatre stage to read her self-written fairytale book Why Kings And Queens Don’t Wear Crowns to a group of little listeners. Paying extra attention were her two daughters Maud Angelica, 4 1/2, and Leah Isadora, 2 1/2, wrapped up in fluffy blankets at her feet.
