Princess Märtha Louise of Norway was born on 22 September 1971 in Oslo and she is the only daughter of King Harald V and Queen Sonja. She is fourth in the line of succession to the Norwegian throne, after her brother and his two children. At birth, she was not in line to the throne, because until 1990, only males could inherit the Norwegian throne. Princess Märtha Louise is a certified physiotherapist. On 24 May 2002 Princess Märtha Louise married in Trondheim author Ari Behn (born 1972 as Ari Bjørshol; he later took his grandmother's name). Princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn have three daughters.

Solberg is the older brother of the 2003 world champion Petter Solberg. Henning Solberg’s unexpected meeting with a tree at the end of one day meant he finished well out of the points. But the poor guy was without his trusty codriver Cato Menkerud, who was at home with his family and newborn baby. However, he emailed Rally Radio to say hi and to request a song to show his affection for Henning: “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Elton John.
