Marius is son to Crown Princess Mette-Marit from her previous relationship with advertising executive Morten Borg. His two half-siblings, sister Ingrid Alexandra, 11, and brother Sverre Magnus, 9, whose dad is Prince Haakon, are the next heirs to the Norwegian throne, but he still gets plenty of royal treatment and has been unofficially adopted by the Norwegian court.
