Some want to ditch princess after she says she can talk to angels

OSLO, Norway (AP) - A leading Norwegian newspaper called on Princess Martha Louise to renounce her royal title Monday after she said she communicates with angels.
The 35-year-old princess, who is fourth in line to the Norwegian throne, has come under intense media scrutiny for her involvement in an alternative school that aims to teach people how to get in touch with angels.
Some observers have questioned whether her work for the private institute, dubbed "the angel school" in Norwegian media, can be combined with her duties as a member of the royal family.
Martha Louise is the daughter of King Harald V and Queen Sonja, and the older sister of Crown Prince Haakon. She was married in 2002 to Ari Behn, a Norwegian writer.
Martha Louise wrote on the Web site of the Astarte Education School that she had learned how to communicate with horses and talk to angels. The institute offers courses it says can help people get in touch with "the angels and the divine Universe."
Many commentators said a member of the royal family should not be involved in spiritual healing, and some even questioned her mental health.
