Yes, all these questions you ask I ask myself, too!
I can only assume that there are republican forces within the country who search and seize every chance which could weaken the royal family in any way to destabilize the institution. Unfortunately they seem strong enough to start a debate such as this and manage to scandalize certain decisions the crown princely couple has been making.

Thanks for sharing the photos and article of Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre Magnus. They look very sweet, and I think the photos might have been taken in the evening of their first day at school as I recognize Sverre Magnus's jumper, but of course I don't know for sure. I agree with sm1939 in regards to who Sverre Magnus resembles. I also think Marius resembles Mette-Marit and now so does Ingrid Alexandra, whereas before I used to think she was all Haakon, but less so at the moment.

I think one shouldn´t be mislead by the boy´s hair; both kids resemble both MM AND Haakon. But Ingrid was always the child who looked most like her father (for me she´s like a female version of Haakon; I mean, just look at her eyes!). And both kids definitely have inherited their father´s (via paternal grandmother) mouth!

August 30: Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Sverre Magnus attended the wedding of Crown Princess Mette-Marit's brother Per to Louise Kathrine Dedichen:

Well, it's not just the hair that makes Sverre Magnus look like Mette-Marit. It is also the eyes and facial features to me. I also think Ingrid Alexandra looks more like Haakon than her younger brother, but recently she has started to look a little like Mette-Marit too, around her eyes. Marius of course looks like Mette-Marit.

Yes, we do know. There is a photo (albeit bad quality) of his father Morten Borg at his wedding, where he bears quite a strong resemblance to Marius :

Morten Borg

I hadn't seen a close-up of Marius's father before, which explains why I thought he looked a lot like Mette-Marit. But now, I think I see more of Morten in him, although there is still some resemblance to Mette-Marit in him as well.

Yes I thought the same. Perhaps he was ill, or I doubt it but perhaps the school might not have let him due to an exam or something else important... but if his siblings were let off, then I doubt that's the case and I would be surprised if his school said that he wasn't allowed to go to a family wedding. Most schools let students have the day off if they have an important family event to attend.

The wedding was on saturday, so no problem with school. Maybe he was on holidays or he didn't arrive with the CP Family and therefore simply wasn't photographed.

5th grade- in the US,that is still elementary. In Norway, what is it? Is IA at boarding school now? Also, I couldn't find any interviews with the parents, or photos of SM at his first day of school. Forgive me- I am sick.

Every year since 1947, Oslo has sent a large Christmas tree to London, as thanks for the British hospitality and assistance during World War II.

Last week Wednesday, November 19, this year's tree was cut in Lillomarka (which is near Oslo) and Princess Ingrid Alexandra was among the spectators, with school.
The Princess saw the christmas gift to London be made ready

It is a privilege to learn that such a bond can be made between Oslo and London by a Christmas tree being sent.

If the tree from Norway to London is on it's way, then it's almost time for the annual Tree from the People of Halifax to the People of Boston to be on it's way too.

On December 7th, 1917 two ships collided in Halifax Harbour, the Mont Blanc not only was a Munitions Ship, but she was also overloaded and not flying the flag to let everyone know she was carrying Munitions. When the Captain of the Imo decided to pull away after the accident, because he didn't know what the cargo of the other vessel was, sparks flew from the friction created of the two ships moving, a fire broke out and about twenty minutes later....

It was the largest Man made explosion in History until the two Atomic Bombs dropped on Japan in the latter stages of WWII.

Halifax was basically levelled and if things weren't already desperate, a blizzard hit the area later that night. Relief Trains from Toronto and Montreal were either derailed or unable to continue due to the Storm. One part of the Maritimes not affected was the route from Boston to Halifax, those Relief Trains did get through and if it hadn't been for the Supplies and Personnel they brought in, so many more would have died.

Ever since, The Christmas Tree in Boston Common has been the gift of Halifax in thanks for that help. It's also a very great honour in Nova Scotia to have a tree from their Property chosen to be The Tree.

A few years ago the CBC made an excellent two part Mini Series movie called Shattered City : The Halifax Explosion and it's up over at YouTube if anyone's interested. Do be aware there are some very graphic moments of the aftermath of an event such as this, as well as just what a Solider w/PTSD deals w/on a daily basis. Just putting that out so no one's blindsided by that.

That's a gorgeous tree that will be going up in London in a week or so and Princess Ingrid and her friends looked like they were having a wonderful time today.
