He wrote a caption: "She said YES! When you know you know. There is nothing better than having clarity as a man that the woman that stands in front of you is the one. I'm overjoyed with tears that I get to spend the rest of my life with the most pure-hearted, angelic, wise, powerhouse woman who represents all levels of a goddess in my eyes"

The Norwegian Royal Family has yet to confirm the engagement news. Though the princess and her three daughters remained in the line of succession to the Norwegian throne, they are not working members of the royal family.

Her relationship with Durek Verrett has been widely criticized in Norway, calling Durek a con artist.

The princess once shared her thoughts about her boyfriend: "Being Shaman Durek‘s girlfriend has given me a crash course in how white supremacy is at play and the way I have consciously and subconsciously thought of and acted towards black people", said the princess

In May 2019, they announced their relationship. In an interview with People magazine, Durek addressed skeptics and shared details about his unconventional romance with the Norwegian princess.

"We're holding the same frequency of love for the planet", Durek said. "And that is worth everything".

Durek and Princess Martha Louise shared the same belief in supernatural things, astrology, power of the stars, and what's beyond in the universe. They also both promote spiritual healing.

Durek once claimed that he lived with Princess Martha Louise in Egypt in a past life. "When we're together and I look at her, sometimes I see another face," he said. "And she sees it in me too. I have memories of us in Egypt, and she was my queen and I was a pharaoh".

He has faced strong criticism in Norway, with many Norwegians voicing their disapproval, calling Verrett a ‘charlatan’. 

Both Verrett and Princess Martha have responded to this negative perception openly to various news outlets.

Princess Martha Louise addressed their critics: "To those of you who feel the need to criticize, hold your shoes", she said. "It is not up to you to choose for me or to judge me. I don't choose my man to satisfy any of you or the norms or boxes you have chosen in your mind for me to be in. I don't thrive there, nor do I exist in your illusion about me. I choose love".
