I was confirmed into the Church of England when I was thirteen. At my church, at the time of my confirmation, the godparents were interestingly not in attendance so none of my godparents were present - including my godfather who is a member of the clergy (at a different church though). My confirmation ceremony was quite informal and was more for the congregation and the parents of those being confirmed.

Thank you ROYAL NORWAY I think it seems that we can expect Ingrid Alexandra's confirmation to be televised, as it seems that Haakon had his televised since he was the heir as Martha Louise did not. I'm guessing that Sverre Magnus's confirmation won't be televised if they're following that pattern.

You're very welcome!

Agree! - He will most likely be confirmated (or confirmed, which seems to be the right word) in a non-televised ceremony at Asker Church.

BTW: Here are some photos from Märtha's confirmation in 1986.

If Ingrid is uncomfortable with a live televised Ceremony they could still have her confirmation at the Palace Church and perhaps allow somer Camera for filming but not broadcast the entire Ceremony live. Lerts hope they will continue to have a Gala Dinner in the afternoion and also that this time all her royal godparents take the time to attend. Not liker at her christening where neither Frederik nor Felipe attended.

This wonderful photo of brother and sister seems to have been taken during the same photo session, though the little pin/button is missing.

Great pics! Ingrid Alexandra is soooo beautiful! She looks a lot like her grandmother Queen Sonja on that picture with her brother.

Well, Haakon sure can't talk his way out of being dad to Sverre Magnus!

Thanks eya, iceflower & Princess Robijn!

According to TV2's royal exert Kjell Arne Totland, there will be a birthday-party this evening (probably at Skaugum - the CP-Family's residence), where the Regent-Couple will be present.
But as most of you know, the prince is not a member of The Royal House (hence no Royal Highness-title), which means that his birthday is not an official flag day and that there will be no 21-gun salute.

The photos: Well, he is looking great with his glasses (very intellectual, I think).
BTW: The photos were taken by Julia Naglestad (an Oslo-based photographer, who's also been used by various media-outlets here).

The resemblance is almost scary, but in a good way of course.

I dont see any resemblence of Haakon in Sverre, but he reminds me A LOT of the late Kong Olav V.
IMO Ingrid looks ways more than her father than her brother does.

I agree he does look like king Olav V

Ingrid I think is such a mixer of both of her parents

Yes, he has always looked like King Olav, I think.

But as my better-half said to me this morning, in today's birthday-photos: ''Give him some darker hair and brown eyes - and see him before you?'' Well, I saw Haakon.

My father, however, agrees with Tirilschatz! - Because he sees no resemblance of Haakon in Sverre, either.

I see some resemblance to Haakon in Sverre Magnus but he really resembles King Harald, as well.
Ingrid is a true mix of both parents and is gorgeous.

I can't believe Sverre Magnus is thirteen already - time sure does fly! I think his resemblance are definitely leaning more towards Haakon and his side of the family, whereas IA is a mixture, with more of a resemblance to MM, IMO. She looks more like Haakon around the eyes but the rest of her, especially around the jawline and mouth, is all MM to me.

I must have missed the birthday photo of Prince Sverre Magnus when it was posted and I too cannot get over how mature looking he has gotten!

The court has released three new photos of Ingrid Alexandra for her 15th birthday. They were taken by Julia Marie Naglestad.

She's growing into such a beautiful young woman! I can't believe that she's already 15. She was just a toddler when I started following European royals. I think she is really a great mix of both her parents.
