1972

At just 6 months of age Märtha Louise smiled for the photographers during a photo session at Skaugum. Later on May 17th, Harald held her aloft in his arms as she appeared on the steps of Skaugum for her first National Day celebrations. Again, the photographers snapped her picture as she neared her first birthday.

1973

In May 1973, Märtha Louise made her second appearance at the National Day celebrations with her parents at Skaugum.

Social graces were taught very early in life and as a little girl, she learned to curtsy as a sign of proper respect to her grandfather, King Olav.

When her baby brother, Haakon Magnus was born in 1973, she carried a small bouquet of flowers to her mother at Rikshopitalet eventhough she was only two years old. Later she welcomed her brother home with a big hug but, not to be overlooked, she had a tantrum during his baptism in September of the same year.

One of Märtha Louise's greatest passions is show jumping and she has been riding and practicing from a young age.
