Norway's crown princess has neck surgery

HELSINKI (AP) - Norway's royal palace says Crown Princess Mette-Marit has had successful surgery on her neck to remove a herniated disk.

Palace spokeswoman Marianne Hagen said the Friday operation went according to plan and that the crown princess would remain in the hospital for a few days before returning home for an unspecified period of recuperation.

She says the 40-year-old princess had suffered from neck problems "for years."

Mette-Marit became crown princess of Norway when in 2001 she married the heir to the throne, Crown Prince Haakon. They have two children and she has another child from a previous relationship.
