It is nice to see the King and Queen also attending the funeral.

Poor Marius. He looks so sad. This pictures make me feel so sorry.

I think that she's that age where she's had interaction with her step-grandfather, that she will likely remember and attending the funeral might help with answering questions and closure.

She didn't attend Sven O. Hiby's funeral last year, and I doubt she spent as much time with him as she did with Rolf Berntsen.

I know that when my grandfather died when I was four, both my younger sister and I were at the funeral, but I can't remember much of it. It's nice to know that I was there, though.

If you ask me he just looked really sad. His face was swollen because he cried. You can see it clearly in some pics. Pretty normal.

Haakon looked quite annoyed by the press. I really can understand that. It's normal that they show interest in their Royals.. but IMO they should just leave them alone during such an personal event.

i also think ingrid is far too young to attend, but that might just be a cultural thing.
mette marit certainly looks affected, at least even more so than at the funeral of her father.

is that ugg boots ingrid wore? she looks adorable nevertheless. marius is going to be a heart breaker when he grows older. he is already incredibly good-looking!

It's really heartbreaking to see Marius that sad, nearly at the end of his
tether, I've also lost my first beloved person at that age, so I especially
empathise with him. It's different for little Ingrid at her age, but it's been
a good idea to bring her with, there I agree with some of you.

I've also noticed that both Haakon and Mette-Marit looked annoyed by
the press on some pics, Haakon even covered Ingrid's face. Of course
it would have been much more respectful to leave them alone, but
it's the way it always is: The world is with it's royal families in good
times and in bad times..

The whole family looks truly heartbroken. I don't think any of us are in a position to judge Haakon and Mette-Marit for bringing Ingrid to the funeral. We don't know how much Ingrid understands of the situation at this age, but Haakon and Mette-Marit obviously felt that it was best for her to be there. It may help her with any questions she has.

I feel sorry for the entire family for their loss. Mette-Marit and Haakon look annoyed at the photographers, Marius looks annoyed, cold, scared, and uncomfortable, and I really don't think Ingrid knows much of what is going on. I don't think the photographers should be here taking pictures unless Haakon or Mette-Marit or someone else invited them.

I really feel bad even looking at the pictures. Marius looked terrible, sad and cold. Both parents looks really annoyed, which I think they had every right to be. This was a private family matter and as much I crave pictures of the children, I think making the decision to not photograph the children would be the right one for the photogs.

Poor Marius, he looks really broken. I felt like I was intruding just looking at the photos, and feel the photographers could have showed more respect. I understand why they were there, but they could have chosen to keep some more distance.

I don't think Princess Ingrid Alexandra is too young to attend a funeral. As others have stated that might be a cultural thing, but I think the tradition on that has changed in Norway as well. I remember I was not allowed to attend my grandfather's funeral when I was Ingrid's age and I was really upset about it, but when my other grandfather passed two years ago both my sisters young children attended with us. As someone else posted it is not usual with an open coffin in Norway, but one can choose to have a veiwing, however I do feel that there as well, it is quite regular for children to attend. I know they did in my own family. After the funeral there is aslo usually a family/friend gathering which children aslo attend.

Sorry, it got so long.

Marius looked like he cried a lot...

Ingrid looked so cute hugging her new doll I just wish they put a ribbon or tied her hair so it won't be covering her cute little face......

Was Rolf Berntsen more a father for Mette-Marit as her own father Sven?
