Its a jewellery box that Queen Sonja pasted pictures on (I belive it is called decopage, she has learned it from Queen Margrethe) as agift for Ingrid on her baptism, You can see the diamond and ruby heart in the box. It is Ingrid on all the pictures.

I think Larzen means that the necklace came from Ingrid Alexandra's grandmother, Queen Sonja, who also adorned the jewellery box with the various images.

The idea or craft, however, for adorning the jewellery box was originally Queen Margrethe's, the artist.

Interesting. Can someone explain what exactly flag flying day is? Don't you fly the flag everyday in Norway? (Or am I just showing my stupidity in asking?!?!) Are official flag flying days something like Government holidays or something perhaps?

Also why would Martha Louise's birthday have been taken off the list?

Martha Louise's birthday is no longer a flag flying day because she is not part of the royal family anymore. She gave up her HRH status when she married like her aunts did. The royal family now consists only of the King, Queen, the Crown Prince couple and baby Ingrid.

But didn't that happen a while ago, why wasn't it removed the day she married? Or at least shortly after she married Ari? That does make sense, I'm just curious as to why it happened so "long" after the couple wed.

And what is a flag flying day? Do you know?

Flag flying days means that all public buildings (and many private persons) put up their flag which we usually dont do every day in Norway, except from military buildingds where tha flag flies every day I think. Some flag flying days are also public holidays such as May 1, May 17 (national day) New years day and Christmas day. The royal birthdays are usual workingdays as are also May 8, june 7 and Sami peoples day.

To introduce a new flag flying day it has to be signed in State Council which was what the King did yesterday wiht Ingrids birthday. I dont know why Märtha has lost her flag day now, The Kings sisters birthaday are not flag days either. Its still ofcourse allowed to put up the flag on Märthas birthday but its not recquired for public buildings to do it. Hope it helps, this is not the things I know most about.

Märtha did not give up HRH when she married but some months before

The Birthdays of Astrid and Ragnhild were official flagdays until their marriages: http://www.geocities.com/dagtho/res19310206.html and http://www.geocities.com/dagtho/res19321216.html

Princess Ingrid Alexandra is up for VG's Norwegian Name of the Year award, among the other nominees are World Idol Kurt Nilsen, different athletes, politicians, etc.


http://interaktiv.vg.no/avstemning/konkurranse/?id=2470

Since they take adresses, it seems like only people with a Norwegian adress may vote, but I'm not sure.

Those interested in seeing them moving, NRK has a video from the gingerbread-baking on their webpages.

I think the apron is just extremely cute :) She was really eager to show off all the things she knew, in the video, stretch her hands, etc...

I read somewhere that someone thought that the wallpaper reminded them of a certain bad outfit worn recently by Princess Claire! Anyway, beautiful photos. Super-cute baby.
