The royal is an active outdoors woman, and often shares snaps as she enjoys the mountains on her Instagram page. 

Although it is not known where the royal had her accident, Norwegian ski resorts have been open for weeks.

Leading resorts, Hemsedal and Trysil, reopened their lifts on December 11. 

The royal’s accident comes weeks after the Norwegian royal family released their traditional Christmas photograph, in which they socially distanced from each other.

The family were all smiles as they posed in front of a Christmas tree at the royal palace in Oslo – but took precautions after King Harald was admitted into hospital  with breathing difficulties in late September.   

Mette-Marit looked typically polished in a floral black and red dress with statement shoulder pads, teamed with neutral heels. 

Her daughter Ingrid Alexandra appeared just as stylish as her mother in a fashionable black chiffon frock, teamed with matching shoes.

He  tested negative for Covid-1 the palace later announced in a statement. 

In the wake of his father’s condition, Crown Prince Haakon had been stepping in and taking over his father’s duties. 

King Harald, who ascended to the throne after the death of his father King Olav on January 17 1991, was also admitted to hospital last year and underwent two weeks sick leave. 

Speaking at the time, Crown Prince Haakon said it was a difficult period for the family and his father was recovering from dizziness but no serious illness was found. 

Weeks ago, Crown Princess Mette-Marit posed alongside and Crown Prince Haakon, 47, and their children Prince Sverre Magnus, 15, and 16-year-old Princess Ingrid Alexandra for their Christmas photo

Crown Prince Haakon has stepped in for his father on several previous occasions including when he became ill in April 2018 with congestion and pain in one foot.

King Harald, who is the country’s first native-born king since the 14th century, won the nation’s hearts when he married a commoner.

He was also praised globally for a 2016 speech showing support for gay rights, saying: ‘Norwegians are girls who love girls, boys who love boys, and girls and boys who love each other.’
