hear hear. These people for whatever reason just ooze sympatheticness (is that even a word?!) if you know what I mean. Not an ounce of pretentiousness, this couple. No wonder the kids follow suit. Thumbs up for this young family.

The photo of Princess Ingrid Alexandra pulling faces has gotten a lot of comment. Here are some other cute ones; Someone has rehearsed for the future as chief of the armed forces Hey! Don't pull my ears!

Otherwise, many Kodak moments and a few Christmas card options in this bunch. Also lucky that the weather was so nice, because the rest of Norway has got an autumnal drizzle of rain and other cocoa-friendly weather...

I think that Sverre Magnus could look a lot like King Olav as he grows up. Certainly, he looks a lot like his mother's side, but there's also similarities to pictures of King Olav at the same age.

Everyone is saying little Magnus looks like Mette-Marit, but I really see a resemblance between him and his great-grandfather, when Olav V was a boy, in this picture!

Ack, norwegianne beat me to it, but I loved the picture of little Olav. Definitely you can see the resemblance!
His sense of responsibility is not less than yours or mine. How could we tell right from wrong as simple people in any kind of situation? How could we know that our courage, loyalty and lives were not misused for evil purposes?

The pictures from the photoshoot are so extremely nice, I can't get enough
of them!
I think they are so special as to the fact that there is a lot of "action", they
came down the stairs, tried out their bikes, walked through the park, many
ocassions for great photos.
As you all mentioned the similarities between children and parents, I'm
looking forward to see how child number four will look like

I was so excited when I got online today and saw the photoshoot of my favorite family. It was great seeing how all the kids have grown. I think the I-A is a handful, she seems to have such a big personality. She will really keep her parents on their toes. LOL
Magnus is so cute, he always looked like alittle old man, what a face he has!! He looks a lot like his older brother
And of course, Marius, I just love this boy. What a great big brother, I-A and Magnus are so lucky to have him. He seems like he is starting to get embarrassed by the attention especially since he is a pre-teen. I also liked when they were coming out of the house for the phootshoot, Marius was holding CPH hand. They seems very close and seems to still have a great relationship.
I think the Princely couple are very good parents.
Thanks everyone who posted links and pictures!!

Ingrid is a little imp! Haakon had a hard time keeping a straight face when she was pulling faces. HAHA

They're such a lovely family! It's nice to see Haakon and Mette-Marit with their beautiful little blonde children, though Ingrid Alexandra's hair seems to be getting darker, so I think when she's older her hair will be brown like her father's instead of the light blonde her mother and older brother have. The children are all three beautiful but you can still see they're children having fun, unlike some of the stiff posed photos you used to see with other royal children.
What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay.
So long and goodnight.
So long and goodnight...
