Those were great photos, as per usual, of the NRF celebrating National Day. Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre Magnus look quite grown up! Ingrid Alexandra is blossoming into a pretty young lady, and I'm starting to see more of Mette-Marit in her now. It felt strange not to see Marius with the family, the red carpet seemed empty without him there - but as long as he's enjoying life as a private citizen, that's the main thing.

Can't believe I missed national day. Especially since one of my closest friends is norweigan and always posts pictures of her and her son in Norwegian sweaters. I saw this years pic and never clicked.

Love unlike Sweden, the royal men have to wear costumes too

Good idea having Sverre hold the dogs. Keeps him busy.

Both kids looking so grown up. Nice to see the pictures

That is never ever going to happen. Prince Sverre Magnus is only eleven and I think he does a great job of standing for hours at the Skaugum/Palace balcony.

Watch the Skaugum event here: (The dogs are adorable)

I was in Oslo and although it was raining a bit, there were thousands of people at Karl Johans gate.

Watch the royal family on the balcony here:

The NRK/TV2 broadcasts were of course much better than that YouTube crap from Dagbladet.

NRK had two live broadcasts - one from around the country (including Oslo) on NRK1 who lasted from 07:50 AM to 14:00 PM and one from Oslo alone on NRK2 who lasted from from 10:20 AM to 14:00 PM. NRK1 broadcasted highlights from the day from 19:30 PM to 21:00 PM.

This is the Oslo broadcast - see when His Majesty The King and other members of royal family comes out on the balcony at 07:40:
Part 1:

See when His Majesty The King and other members of royal family leave the balcony at 42:00:
Part 4:

NRK1 also sent this video several times during the day:
A video where we see pictures of norwegians who are celebrating while we hear a song from the hip-hop group Klovner I Kamp and some word from Norway's beloved, amazing, caring, warm and inclusive monarch (Yes I love him).

The Queen is the most wonderful, forgiving, non judgmental person I know. Sarah Ferguson speaking in 2011.
