Crown Prince Olav loves the sea
August 19, 1926. Crown Prince Olav of Norway said today that he wished he could have a career in the Navy. He "has an intense love of the sea," and he would have "elected the sea for his career," if he had the choice. But Olav, who is the only child of KIng Haakon and the British-born Queen Maud, is the heir to the Norwegian throne. Maud is the youngest sister of Britain's King George V.
