LOL Oppie....I thought the same thing when I first glanced at the name- I had to reread it....I thought to myself "wow they must be Harry Potter fans!".

I do like the name....very different (at least I've never heard it before).

I am wondering....what if (& this is just a what if)...25yrs down the road he & Princess Alexia fall Madly in Love & want to marry.
They marry & Alexia moves to Norway....what happens then....she will still be HRH (am I correct)? And if thats the case....that means she would be styled higher in rank than her husband. Am I correct or am I still totally off the mark.
I know I'm thinking far into the future I was just wondering if anyone knew....this is new territory for some of the royals.

I would've liked Prince Severus Magnus but Sverre will have to do.

Adorable baby! He looks like his father and Ingrid Alexandra as babies.

I like his name, it's a very good traditional name for a prince. He is definitely adorable. :)

As I said before, its tit for tat, why should the females lose their HRH status upon marriage or career? If the new baby prince got HRH and got married or had a career, would they make him lose the title? If the answer is yes, well then there is no reason to give him HRH now as he'll lose it anyway and if the answer is no, then thats sexist and not equal.

Lovely name, but I do think it is very weird that he is not HRH. There are other ways to slim down the titles, but since he is 3rd in line, I don't think it makes sense for him to not have a title!

It seems a bit unfair to me that he doesn't have the HRH tittle but considering that Ingrid Alexandra is the one whose meant to be queen one day he probably doesn't really need it. By not having it he could do his own thing during his life which I think is a good thing.

I think it's a bit early to start guessing about which royals will marry each other in around 30 years time but that would make an interesting thread. A good little fun internet time waster.

Yea...he has no title except "Prince of Norway." A little odd, though. I mean, the Belgian royal family granted Princess Astrid's children the title "Princess/Prince of Belgium"...Norway won't even give little Sverre, the son of the crown PRINCE, a "HKH" or "HH." I think it's a pity...it is kind of his birthright.

I guess the view must be that as long as the line of succession to the throne is secured, titles don't matter as much. I know there are logical reasons behind this but I don't see how it'll allow the little one more freedoms later in life. It's not like he'll be less in the spotlight because he doesn't have the HRH.

Oh, well. As long as the baby has a long and happy life, that's what matters. :)

I'm kind of sad the little prince didn't get a HRH title. It's tradition and it's not like the Norwegian Royal Family is all that big right now. They have no nobility and Martha Louise's children are titleless. People wanting him to have a normal life doesn't really relate to him until maybe he's way older and his sister is on the throne. BTW, some people say he won't have to perform official duties....what if he likes doing them? (I know he can still perform duties without a title, but it just seems nicer to have one when you're representing the royal family).

Aftenposten *speculates* that the christening will be in Febuary or March 2006, among the candidates for godparents they list the Queen, Willem Alexander and Maxima, Edward and Sophie. Maybe someone from Mette-Marits family or Ari Behn. All specualtions, nothing is official on the Godparents yet. They say there are two alternatives for christening gown, either the dress Ingid Alexandra was christened in that King Olav used. or the dress made by Princess Ingeborg which all of King Olavs decendands except Ingid has used. The bishope of Oslo, Ole Christian Kvarme will preside the ceremony in the palace chappel

i'm a bit disappointed as well that little prince sverre magnus will not be styled HRH...but im sure the king and the cp were both only thinking of the best for the little boy. im sure they have thought everything through and have exhausted all possible consequences of their decisions that we haven't even dreamed of. besides, titles are titles--it can be given or taken by whoever's in power, but his bloodline is his forever and one which can never be taken from him.

Oh great they named him Sverre! I wanted him to be named that.

And, the HRH idea is best. The state has to pay for those members with the HRH right? Well, the only people the government should be paying for in adulthood is the King & Queen, the CP couple, and Ingrid-Alexandra, not a prince who works for them only a few days a year on official days.

I'm just wondering if Sverre Magnus will come on the balcony on may 17th, or isn't he a part of the Royal family? I know this may sound silly..:o

How is Mette-Marit taking all this? Her son being denied the HRH status barely as he arrives to the world. It must be a cruel for a mother to see that his son, child of a future King and descendant of Kings and Queens, won't have those three letters that, supercifial as they might look, do tie his life to his family history, that is also Europe's.

This mother already has a son with no title what so ever, and its not like Mette-Marit can be compared to the Queen Of Spain who herself is tied to the European history in as many ways as possible. It was the Kings decision and frankly I dont think he would have done it had his son disagreed strongly, it might even be them who suggested it to the King, we will most likely never know.

He is still a prince and everyone knows this. My question is does it make a difference, won't he still be treated like a royal regardless of HRH in front of his name:(?

Given what I know about Mette-Marit, I think she couldn't care less.
