Speaking about his work, he said: ‘I like to help, I love people, and I hope people can be happy with me. I always say yes when someone asks for help.
‘It has made me familiar with so many new people. I have something to do every day all week and I have a lot of people to say hello to when I take a trip out.’
The appearance trip comes just a month after Mette-Marit confirmed she is suffering from the life-limiting lung condition chronic pulmonary fibrosis, an illness she has been aware of for some time.
She is thought to be in the early stages of the disease in which scar tissue forms in the lungs. The disease can cause serious breathing problems and there is no known cure.

The mother-of-three released her own statement following the diagnosis where she spoke of her determination to carry on as normal.
She said: ‘Although such a diagnosis in times will limit my life, I’m glad that the disease has been discovered so early.
‘My goal is still to work and participate in the official programme as much as possible.’
Mette-Marit is a particularly rare case as the disease normally occurs in people of the age 70-75 and is very rare for anyone under 50 to suffer from it.
