I think the press in Norway are very reluctant to publish loads of picures of Ingrid Alexandra as the CP couple both want to expose her as little as necesarry to the press. Which is understandable in 20 years the press will go mental !

Im sorry to say that I dont think the Norwegian press has any such scruples . Haakon and Mette-Marit brought Ingrid to Holmenkollen, and they knew that she would be photographed, but under controlled formes, instead of some papparzzi stuffing their camera up her face on the street, which they will do if the dont get pictures of her. I think it is sensible to let the press get pictures of her now and then at events like this one.

I think that the Norwegian press are more eager to photograph the Norwegians winning at skiing rather than the royal family. The bigger pictures will probably be in the magazines such as Se & Hør/Her og Nå. The Royal family usually attends these kind of events, which makes it less newsworthy than if they had never been to one, and started doing it.

But I agree with Larzen. I don't think the press has any scruples whatsoever photographing Ingrid Alexandra when her parents bring her out in public. The real problem with photographers isn't now, when Ingrid is being carried about everywhere by her family. The real problems will manifest themselves when she starts nursery school, and real school.

Haakon and Märtha Louise were allowed a great deal of privacy in their schooling, at least until they reached high school. I'm afraid it isn't going to be the same for Ingrid, at least not when everybody has a camera on their mobile.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit enjoyed some snowy family time with husband Crown Prince Haakon this week, taking son Marius and the couple's daughter, Princess Ingrid-Alexandra, to Oslo's annual ski festival.

The rosy-cheeked little ones braved the cold in matching knit hats, and were surely kept especially warm by the cosy embrace of their mum. Ingrid Alexandra and Marius had plenty of company in the royal box, as their grandparents King Harald and Queen Sonja – as well as Denmark's Queen Margrethe – also attended the event.

Spending time with her husband and children at the ski fest has been just one of the high points for popular Mette-Marit this winter. In December, just before Princess Ingrid turned one, a poll showed that 84 per cent of Norwegians approved of Mette-Marit's performance as princess.

However, Mette-Marit was in the news for very different reasons this past weekend. Her father Sven Hoiby, whose previous antics have made him a controversial figure in Norway, made headlines once again by marrying a 34-year-old former stripper.

Ingrid Alexandra

To Norwegianne

I don't think Ingrid Alexandra will get any problems with the norwegian press when she starts at nursery school or real school at all. I don't think she have to worry before she's like 16-17 and gets a boyfrend who also can be the next norwgian prince/king.

The norwegian press talk to the royal familiy constatly and have made som roules when the royal family can be or shall not be taken pictures of. I think that both parts are more or less happy with the agrement. One of the roules is that Ingrid Alexandra and Marius shall not be photographt when the are alone, at school etc. Only if Haakon, Mette-Marit or some other member of the royal family is close to them.

The press can of course do things the royal familiy don't like, and the the royal familiy will do things the press don't like. But none of them what to make the other part too angry.
