Shaman confessed that he had originally planned to pop the question back in February during a trip to Hawaii, but changed his mind after following the death of Princess Märtha Louise’s former husband, Ari Behn, who died by suicide on 25 December 2019.

News of the impending engagement will not be a shock to Princess Märtha Louise, considering she took part in the same interview. However, Shaman revealed he will wait for the right moment to propose.

Princess Martha Louise and Shaman Durek spoke to Vanity Fair

While she made no mention of Shaman's plans to ask for her hand in marriage, Princess Märtha Louise did address the interview on her Instagram on Friday.

She wrote in part: "This has been a long wait. We did this interview for Vanity Fair in the summer of 2019. Well, the first one, I mean. We have, to be honest, had many. Because as the story delayed, there were new themes coming in constantly. And so the piece has evolved over time. With us."

She added: "Being on the path with you @shamandurek makes life full of adventures and intense colours. Evolving moves us into new dimensions. I am glad I have chosen you to evolve with. It’s more fun that way."
