Princess Martha Louise of Norway’s daughter Leah Isadora, 16, becomes a social media sensation

The glamorous granddaughter of the King and Queen of Norway has become a social media sensation after building up a 200,000-strong following sharing snaps of her stylish outfits and easy make-up tips.

Leah Behn, 16, the daughter of Princess Martha Louise of Norway and her late husband Ari Behn,  has racked up tens of millions of views across her TikTok, YouTube and Instagram pages where she share insights into her jetset lifestyle.

But the student, who is untitled and sixth in line to the throne, appears to live a life away from royal duty, instead posting about her sunny trips to LA and Dubai, going thrift shopping,  and spending time with her mother and sisters Maud, 18, and Emma, 13. 

In one clip posted to TikTok, she compares her relationship with her mother to that of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore of hit noughties show Gilmore Girls.

The show tells the story of Lorelai, a single mother who is very close to her teen daughter, Rory, she had when she was 16. 

Despite being born to multi-millionaire old-money parents, Lorelai describes herself as a free spirit and rejects her family’s wealth, raising her daughter modestly.

Perhaps seeing a reflection with her own relationship, Princes Martha-Louise, 50,  is far from a stiff-upper lip royal.

She describes herself as a ‘clairvoyant’ and has previously said she wants to help people by teaching them how to talk to angels. 

Princess Martha-Louise’s boyfriend, who also has a strong TikTok presence, is a bisexual Shaman who works with A-listers including Gwyneth Paltrow. He describes Leah as his ‘bonus daughter’.

Clearly close to her mother, another clip shows the pair driving together where Leah says: ‘My mum is so pretty’.

Discussing the traumatic day, Martha Louise revealed they returned home from the Christmas morning church service to the news.

‘They were saying that it was my fault and Durek’s fault—that if it hadn’t been for Durek, this wouldn’t have happened. I was so lucky to have the support of Durek and my family and my friends all around us, but it’s a void.

‘Suddenly I was a single parent, which is a very different horse, and of course the grief, the anger, the self-pity, the sadness over never seeing him again…it’s devastating.’

Martha, who added that she ‘never felt like a royal’ also revealed she’s discovered how racist Norwegian people can be since coupling up with Derek, who is of Norweigan, Indian and Haitian descent.
