Princess Ingrid Alexandra has attended Jansløkka Elementary School since 2010. She has already carried out several official engagements. As in previous years, she joined the other members of the Royal Family on the Palace balcony to greet the annual children’s parade on May 17th (Norwegian Constitution Day) last year. She accompanied her parents on several official engagements during their county trip to Møre and Romsdal in 2012. She also attended the Save the Children’s Peace Prize Festival together with Crown Princess Mette-Marit in December.
Before Christmas, she appeared in the television broadcast ‘Julemorgen’ (Christmas morning) together with Crown Prince Haakon, where she answered some questions about Christmas and royal life, and presented a donation to the children’s environmental organization ‘Miljøagentene’ (Environmental Agents), which she is a member of.
