Ingrid Alexandra looks so much like her mother. She is so beautiful.

Sverre Magnus is a very funny young boy.

Although the articles claim how incredibly IA resembles her father!
She´s beautiful indeed - well, it runs in the family!

Such a lovely tradition to hang a garland of flags on your tree.

He is very.

The youngest son has the comfortable looks of his grandfather, methinks, and a most engaging disposition.

She received a very appealing mix of her parents' genes. She is also amazingly self-possessed. The calm, aware and direct gaze at the camera is remarkable. She radiates charm.

Those were Christmas great photos of the NRF! I also like how they have flags on their Christmas tree.

The CP children are growing up so fast. I agree that Ingrid Alexandra is a mixture of her parents; her eyes to me are like Haakon's but her other features are more like MM's. Sverre Magnus however looks more like his mother. Marius is getting incredibly handsome!

I thought that Harald looked rather frail in these photos, I hope that he is okay.

This article/video was posted in the Haakon and Mette-Marit Current Events thread, but I post it here too.

Kronprinsfamilien gir pepperkakering til Hele Norges julelenke - NRK Kultur og underholdning - Nyheter og aktuelt stoff
Quote:
The Crown Prince family provides gingerbread ring to Hele Norges Julelenke ( the whole Norway Christmas link)

In over a month, people from across the country have submitted Christmas links which shall bind Norway together. The Crown Prince family have now made its contribution.
Video translation by me.

Mette-Marit to Sverre Magnus - Magnus, what are you grateful for? Sverre Magnus - I am grateful to be with the family at Christmas. Mette-Marit - It was cozy.

Mette-Marit to Ingrid Alexandra - And Ingrid you? Ingrid Alexandra - That we have the family. Mette-Marit - And you have a lovely little brother and big brother, it's cozy.

Mette-Marit to Haakon - And Haakon, you then? Hakkon - I am grateful that we have the ability to do things that we think are valuable and fine, and that we are allowed to be together.

Ingrid Alexandra - We're very fortunate to live in Norway. Mette-Marit - That's right.

Mette-Marit - So nice it was Ingrid. Sverre Magnus - This is our Christmas link. Mette-Marit - What is written on it then. Sverre Magnus - Gratitude. Mette-Marit - Yes it does, Merry Christmas. Haakon - You'll show it to us, then. Sverre Magnus - Merry Christmas.


It is difficult to translate Norwegian to English because some English words means something quite different in Norwegian.

Both Haakon and Mette-Marit likes and is very interested in the Queen, and as you can see, there is a book of her on the table/pouffe.

Thanks for sharing the video and for providing a translation with us. I thought it was cute and I liked the music in the background. The NRF seem to be rather close with each other.

I think the Queen who ROYAL NORWAY was referring to is Elizabeth II. If you look at the video closely, you can see that it's her on the front cover.

The Norwegians are the British royals closest relatives out the Europeans royals. Princess Anne is Haakon's godmother. The book could have been a present.

No, as HereditaryPrincess wrote, I meant Elizabeth II.

My mother is British and lives in the UK with her family (including her husband and my two half-brothers) so I've always called her (Elizabeth II) for just the Queen as most Brits do. And like many others I se her as the boss Queen in a way.

She has met a whole bunch of heads of state/royals and they (Haakon and Mette Marit) come from a very small country so I don't think she knows so much about them, but she have met Haakon several times, and Mette-Marit at least three times.

Yes, the Norwegians are the British royals closest relatives out of the Europeans royals, but both Harald, Sonja, Haakon and Mette-Marit have said that they are fascinated by her. And I don't think the Queen or other members of the British royal family would have given books about them self as gifts to the Norwegian royal family.

King Harald is a big fan of The Queen and has spoken warmly of her in the Norwegian media several times. He's known for holding her in very high esteem and they have always had an excellent relationship. When he and other members of his family visited the UK in 2005 he said in an interview that the Queen was a role model for many, including him.

Are you really surprised that people/royalty is fascinated by this remarkable lady?

The Queen is an international icon and the embodiment of royalty. She has dedicated her life to the UK and the Commonwealth, and have spent the last 63 years building relations and friendship between nations. She's was known as the world top diplomat until at least 2011 (when she almost stopped traveling) She was also with her parents, sister and Winston Churchill a symbol of peace during World War II.

She is simply THE QUEEN and many royals including King Harald (as I said above), Queen Margrethe, even Emperor Akihito of Japan, Victoria, Haakon and Mette-Marit etc have said they are fascinated by her.

The same applies to several US Presidents and other heads of state/governments including Obama, both the Bushes, Clinton and Reagan who all have spoken warmly about her, and have told journalists that she is a very kind, warm and wise person.

Video:
Kronprinsfamilien baker pepperkaker - Video
Quote:
The Crown Prince family bakes gingerbread
In the program The evening before the evening we get to be with the Crown Prince family when they bakes gingerbread.
This video is a bit long to translate, but they are visited by journalist/presenter Ingrid Gjessing Linhave and they talk among other things about Christmas baking and that Mette-Marit's mother bakes to them.

They also speak about that they made orange juice for Sverre Magnus's Christmas market at school and nobody liked it, but Haakon liked it because he drinks everything (his daughter words).

Ingrid Gjessing Linhave ask them about what they are looking forward to with Christmas? Matte-Marit says she's looking forward to being with the family. Haakon says he's looking forward to the gifts. Ingrid Alexandra says she's looking forward to go skiing. Sverre Magnus says he's looking forward to three things, go skiing, being with the family and gifts. Haakon and Mette-Marit are asked to close their ears so the kids can tell whether they have made any gifts to mom and dad. Haakon is asked what he gave Mette-Marit the first year they were together and she replies that she always gets either a bike, tent, kayak etc.

They end the interview by saying that they look forward to be together at Christmas, read books, play games, go skiing and to reflect on the year that has passed. They are asked about 2016 and they say they hope they will manage to balance family life with work.
