That is a really neat video. I'm glad that they took time out of their vacation to support this great cause.

Nice video from Svalbard. I'm sure MM and Haakon participated in this video spontaneously. I like what MM had written on her hand: "my kids" so simple and straight from heart. I was unable to see what was written on Haakon's palm. Does anyone know?

The question was "what would ending climate change protect for you?"

I love when Mette-Marit smiled as she opened her hand. As if saying... of course.. .. "my kids" (such a great mother)

Haakon's answer i think was... "dignity". I was kind of hoping he'll say Norway or my country or something along that line. Since he's next in line to the throne. But well, that's just me....

Are either of the children going to school, and if so, will they be attending public schools like the Dutch and Danish children?

galatea_12, you are so right. Her smile is realy so nice. I love her answer and Haakon's as well. I can imagine that maybe it means that one day Kind Haakon and Queen Mette-Marit will great partents and dignified monarchs. I like this idea very much

Krebs Skole (which Nikolai and Felix attend), is a private Danish school. Christian is attending public daycare.

Neither Ingrid Alexandra or Sverre Magnus are attending school at the moment. Ingrid Alexandra is in daycare/nursery school, but this is not an official part of the Norwegian school system.

In Norway you start school at the age of 6.

As all of the members of the Norwegian royal family have attended public schools - with the exception of when they were educated at home before WWII - it would be very strange if Ingrid Alexandra and her brother were not to attend public schools.

It is random which year they do it. It is not every year, even if it would have been a lovely tradition if they had done it.

This was just a rumor started by a german gossip magazine (by whom else? ).
They started the rumors that Hollywood plans to make a movie about Mette-Marit's story. ... with Gwyneth as MM and Keanu as Haakon.
