The pictures are great. I saw a little report on TV and it was very nice. I had to laugh when Ingrid wanted to catch her daddy's hat and he kept her hands away :)

no, as they officially don't belong to the royal house anymore.

When she married Ari Behn she decided that she would give up here place in the official royal family. Meaning that she doesn't have the title Royal Highness, just Princess, and that she don't appear on official things such as state visits, 17 of May etc. But she is still of a part of the family as private persons. She also have to pay tax from her income (she has her own company -doing storytelling and publishing books).

She doesn't have to represent anymore but pitch in when needed and she still has her protectionaries that she follow. You can compare her to Princess Astrid Mrs. Ferner and Princess Ragnhild Mrs. Lorentzen, even though Astrid and Ragnhild was forced to give up their Royal Highness titles when married (you know, oldfashion times). Her giving up her official title is voluntary, she wanted to be her own person separate from the official Norwegian royal family, and to do her own thing.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks to everyone who posted pictures. King Harald is quite missed on the balcony. :( But Queen Sonja, CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marit and Princess Ingrid Alexandra looked like they were having a pretty good time!

A question about Marius: He was not on the balcony with his mom and Haakon, but there were pictures of him. Where was he exactly "situated?"

why not dressing her with a little bunad? she would look cute and traditional but not with that "oldie" look...
I thought that Ingrid Alexandra was dressed rather adorably! The long pink jacket with the hat with the flower on the one side was very sweet on her, while also protecting her from the bit of wind I noticed. I don't get what was so "oldie" about her outfit? It was a jacket and a cotton hat. She wasn't dressed an apron with puff sleeves!

I think that a bunad might be a bit complicated to dress a one and a half year old in, and it might be uncomfortable for Ingrid Alexandra to spend a couple of hours in.

He was walking past the palace with his fellow classmates. I belive it was some sort of parade.

Wonderful pictures, thanks everyone who posted!

IA is just the cutest little royal there is, and what a wonderful coat they had her in today! I wonder how Marius felt though, parading past with his class from school, seeing his own mother standing there waving. Must be a strange feeling for him, I hope he's coping well.

great pics

I was wondering: what is the colour of Alexandra's eyes? Blue or dark???

Mette Marit looks already very pregnant, when she is supposed to be 2 or 3 months pregnant only!

I think it was previously discussed that Ingrid Alexandra and Maud Angelica's clothing reflects the style of their respective mothers. Martha Louise has a flair for more colourful and even more eclectic outfit choices and her love of colour and whimsical clothing is reflected in Maud Angelica. While Mette-Marit's fashion sense leans more towards the classic and neutral tones, which is very much in line with the outfit chosen on this occasion.

Colourful outfits are of course more fun on little babies, but I think classically dressed babies are also adorable in their own sense.

Thanks marezdote for the answer about Marius. :)

And thanks Pdas1201 for the additional pictures! :)

I love classic baby wear. And when I would get one day a son, I would buy for him such a coat, which John John Kennedy wore at the funeral of his father.
But I would say Mette Marit and Haakon should vary the colour of her clothes a bit. It´s always pink in combination with white....sometimes a little bit red. There are also other nice colours out there...
