They are beautiful pictures. My favourites are actually the ones of Crown Prince Haakon giving Marius a boost into a back flip! I just love seeing the relationship the two of them have.
The picture of Mette-Marit and Ingrid cuddling is a beautiful shot too.

The video is actually quite funny. While they are sitting by the table eating, Ingrid asks why the photographer isn`t given any food! Then M-M says he can eat afterwards..
Then M-M and Haakon explains to the children have to make a toast. Good to know - really early!

Ingrid Alexandra is turning into a very beautiful little girl. She looks a lot like her Father, Prince Haakon, even though there is some of her Mother in her, as well. I like this couple very much and their children are lovely.

You can also watch the video at this link http://www.aftenposten.no/webtv/?id=12729

It's a very nice video, and they're all cute and looks like they are having a good time even though theyt are being followed with a camera.

I’ve translated some of what they say in the video.

Mette Marit: Wasn’t this nice, sitting outside eating?
Ingrid Alexandra: (Playing with her food) Look at that one.
Ingrid points to the film guy saying: doesn’t he get anything to eat, and Mette Marit says: he will get food later on. Haakon says they're saving, or putting aside food for him and has a plate ready.

Then they all make a toast (skål) and Haakon explain to them how to do so. How far up the glass should be raised and how to wait a moment after your first sip to put the glass down again. But Ingrid says she thinks it’s Olay to bring the glass above your head.

Then they play peek-a-boo with Magnus.

Ingrid sings an old Norwegian folksong, Per Spellemann, while waiting for the others to get ready.

When they start walking, Mette asks if she can follow in the tracks Ingrid makes, and Ingrid says yes. Mette replies with: that was kind of you, thank you. Ingrid: Then I will make tracks for you, oh, I fell. I will make tracks for you. Mette: Thank you, you’re very kind to do so.

When they get to a patch of snow the second time, Ingrid starts walking saying she will make tracks for mummy first, and then she will help Marius up.

After Marius does his back-flip Haakon says they should all watch the view and Ingrid says: hey, look how far we’ve gotten and points to the cabin.

Mette: Have you looked at these flowers Ingrid, we’ve seen the same (kind) before, but they have grown larger now.
Ingrid: Come on. Mette: Shall we go?

When Ingrid is up on her fathers back, she says: It sure is cold on Svalbard. Mette: Yes. Haakon: Yeah, it is cold here. Ingrid then says that Marius has already started (walking). And a little way up he is seen sitting talking about some cool stones he has found and Mette asks if he has found a fossil.

Mette talking to Magnus: Come and sit here to get warm. When they are sitting drinking Mette says: aren’t we lucky, and then she sings part of a song called Soltrall and later Ingrid sings Bjørnen sover, a song about a sleeping bear it is best to be watchful of even though he is sleeping. Before Mette and Ingrid sit cuddled together around the cup, Ingrid asks if anyone wanted to warm their hands.

Why did they spent their summer-holiday there? It is so far from civilisation, so cold and there is nothing. I don't understand it. But they are nice, and had a good time together.

thanks so much for the links and the summary of the video track. it was a very sweet scene and lovely to see the affection in the family. i admire Haakons good relationship with marius (not that i'd expect any less of him, he's such a good man and father) they seem close and affectionate. it was precious when he was carrying Ingrids bear and then he put it in the back carrier during the hike, priceless. thanks again for the smiles this family bring to my face. Ingrid is so cute and self possessed for only 5, she's darling and Magnus, OMG what a sweet little face and so sweet natured.

Svalbard is a very beautiful place. I am very proud of Mette-Marit and Haakon showing the nature of the Norway to their children. Ingrid Alexandra has to see and understand the whole country she'll represent some day.
It is cold but very magical

Thanks a lot for the translation of the video, vestfoldlilja

Thank you for sharing the photos and videos. Svalbard looks like such a beautiful place! I have never seen such blue skies. It looks like a wonderful place to visit. Ingrid Alexandra looks like she has quite the cute personality! These photos were my favorite:

Thank you all for the photos and videos. It's a beautiful but cold and calm place.

For the first time I can hear MetteMarit's voice.
Ingrid is a good singer.

All the best to IA

Wonderful video, what a great family. They don't seem to put on any airs, they act just like a normal family. I liked when Marius hugged CP H-M and also when they did the back flip, I like that in the family, all the children are treated the same. Ingrid is such a beautiful little girl, I think where she was singing and they caught her from the side that she looked just like her grandmother Sonja. Magnus is such a sweet little man, he has some of the best expressions. Thay need to have more children, they are such great parents.

I also saw Marius hugging Haakon and then when they turned to start walking Haakon put his arm around him. They have a very sweet relationship

Cute Video. But I have a question.

Looking at pictures and video like this you wonder what is the point of Royalty? This looks like any other family enjoying a picnic outside their somewhat small-ish cabin. Should'nt pictures of the Crown Prince of Norway and his family be, I don't know, more REGAL?

I wathced the video and... what a beautiful place to spend holidays, quiet and peaceful , lovely, but I really think eating outside with that kind of weather is not healthy for anyone!!!! I don't know but I have the feelling that Mette Marit now takes more care of the two young children and less of Marius
