Well, this is why I like them so much. Norwegian are very down to earth / no fuss people so images like these go right to our hearts.

I’m very glad they don’t release pictures and videos on such an occasion that are very stiff and formal. I much more enjoy seeing them like this. The point of royalty isn’t to have a royal family that act and look regal.

Eating outside, or being outside in that kind of weather is very common up here. We have a saying that translates to: it’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing, and many of us kind of live by that saying. They were all approximately dressed and kept warm also by being active. Spending the day like we see the Crown Prince family do here is admired and very common within the Norwegian society.

Marius is a lot older than Ingrid and Magnus, and in any case I don’t think this video is enough to judge by. Both Mette-Marit and Haakon are seen interacting with all the children, and I can’t see how the children are treated differently. The focus is more on Ingrid, but she is the heir and it’s her birthday so that is natural. But I love how they include the whole family in these yearly birthday videos.

Thanks for the lovely pictures and video. It´s nice to see a family like theirs, enjoying themselves normally in those awesome surroundings. Even though they are royals, that doesn´t mean they have to be always shown in regal occasions. What a fantastic relationship CP Haakon has with Marius!

Adorable family! Haakon and M-M are by far my favourite royals. Thanks for sharing.

Already six years old - time flies. These are lovely pictures of Ingrid Alexandra! She resembles her mother and her brother Marius quite much IMO, aside from the hair colour.

Oh I can't believe Ingrid Alexandra is six already. It seems as if I was just reading about her birth! She looks like her mother.

Great photos, thanks a lot!
She looks like her grandfather Harald.
It is strange but I can see a bit o CP Victoria in her. Well maybe its because I have great simpathy to them
