Ingrid Alexandra's Birthday: Pictures and Articles (all years)
 
Hurrah for Ingrid Alexandra!

Princess Ingrid Alexandra turns 1 years old. 21st January.

The day will be celebrated with a family party at Skaugum.

Since the birth the Norwegian people could have followed the little prinecss’ developement.

The first official picture was taken by dad when the heir was only a few hours old. And no doubt this was a daddys girl. The little baby was the spitting image of her dad as a newborn.

Her first official TV-appearance the little princess had 11 days old. Dressed in a white pair of rompers (overall) she met the press at Skaugum, and accepted both flashes and bright TV lights without making a sound.

During the christening in the palace chappel three months later the public heard that there really was sound in the little lady. Dressed in here great grandfather, King Olavs more than 100 years old christening dress, she screamed highly on her grandfathers arm when she was christened by bishop Gunnar Stålsett. Later there have been a lot of pictures of the little princess, that with her joyful being and her big brown eyes charms everyone she mets. (NTB)



I found this article on www.nrk.no and I translated it myself, so its not very good, but it conveys its meaning I think!

And the four last pictures from VG's series/SCANPIX

I kind of like the second one best. Ingrid Alexandra has developed a character of her own, and you can see she's going to have a sense of humour when she grows up. (And has one already.)

Happy birthday to Ingrid Alexandra.

Lena 01-21-2005 07:14 AM

Thanks for the pictures, norwegianne.
I wonder if those pictures are the official birthday pictures, or if we also get to see pictures of Ingrid Alexandra inside (getting gifts, trying to blow out the candle on the cake). Well, I could understand, if Haakon and MM would want to keep that private. It was already very nice of them, that they have shared so many pictures of Ingrid´s first year with us.
Nice to see that Marius (with a cute tooth space, it seems) is so very fond of his younger half sister and cares for her. No sign of jealousy. Haakon and MM are great parents!

Royal Sledding

(VG Nett) Princess Ingrid Alexandra enjoyed the sledding at Skaugum with her big brother Marius yesterday.


As all other families with a one year old, the parents and grandparents were obviously charmed asunder. Ingrid Alexandra seemed to enjoy the sled, some on her own, and some with her big brother safely behind.

Today marks the one year anniversary of Ingrid Alexandra's birth, and the birthday will be celebrated with a family party at Skaugum.

Mummy Mette-Marit will be travelling to Malawi in Africa on Sunday, to study the HIV/AIDS-work in the country. Daddy Haakon will stay home to look after the two children.

You can also find a link to, what I suspect is a home-video, of Ingrid Alexandra playing (Ingrid Alexandra leker) with her toys inside there. You'll need a registration to be able to view the videos, but it is free.

Thank you so much for the link to the videos...this is too cute. I really recommend to register and watch it (especially the one of Ingrid Alexandra playing)

Aftenposten.no (http://www.aftenposten.no/spesial/bi...55.ece?start=1) has a pictorial of Ingrid Alexandra's first year. As the pictures have been posted on this site already, I saw no reason to double-post them.

lucys 01-21-2005 10:00 AM

What fantastic photos! Wonderful! This little princess is, for me, the very cutest of all the little royal babies. What a doll!

Alexandria 01-21-2005 10:44 AM

Very adorable pictures -- thank you for sharing them norwegianne! :)

The picture of Ingrid Alexanda on the sled with her stuffed animal sitting behind her is priceless!

Wish I could have a hat like Ingrid Alexandra's! :p

Mandy 01-21-2005 12:11 PM

Great pictures Norwegianne. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Gabriella 01-21-2005 12:41 PM

Those pictures are absolutely adorable. Thank you for posting them.

My favorite is the one of Ingrid and Marius sitting on the sled together and she is looking back at him. Too cute.

Thanks for these photos. She looks so cute there. I like that look of wonder or bemusement in the first photo.

KikkiB 01-21-2005 04:26 PM

I really love the photo when both Marius and Ingrid Alexandra are sitting on the sleigh and she has turned her head back to look at Marius. Prizeless!! And I wonder if there will be a crisis if the teddy is misplaced:) She must love it dearly since it comes along everywhere:D

Lena 01-21-2005 06:50 PM

On the homepage of the norwegian Royal court you can watch (part of) the video clip of Ingrid Alexandra playing, without registering:

I love it, that the Royal courts also starts to publish clips on their homepages, that´s the future.

Nichola 01-22-2005 05:26 PM

The pictures are really cute!

My favourite has got to be the one where she's looking back at Marius on the sledge, she must love her big brother.

Although I've always thought she looks a lot like Haakon, I can see a few resemblances to Mette-Marit in some of the photos, particularly the one where she's lying on her tummy and laughing. I think it must be the expression of her laughing?

Bubbette 01-23-2005 11:11 AM

Hello,
I am new to the boards but I must admit that I have been prowling for months and finally decided to join. I lived in Europe and have a fascination with the lifestyles and cultures of many of the countries. Also I love little Ingrid. She is the cutest baby and I love how close everyone seems to be in the family.
I have tried to log on to www.nrk.no in roder to see the videos but since i dont understand any norwegian i am having trouble registering. if anyone could help, that would be great.
Thanks

An article about Ingrid Alexandra in Hello! :)

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...rincessingrid/

norwegianne 01-26-2005 09:29 AM

Okay... when did Ingrid Alexandra celebrate her first birthday in Copenhagen? Am I the only one really out of touch, or is it something in the water of the Hello offices?

Granted the little girl has globetrotted a bit more than others her age, but that doesn't mean she does it all the time, Hello.

I find it highly unlikely that Princess Ingrid Alexandra celebrated any part of her birthday in Copenhagen. I'd guess they had a little family get-together with a cake and gifts at Skaugum. It hasn't been mentioned in any Norwegian media. And I think a lot of Norwegians would have been upset if the Princess was to celebrate her first birhday abroad. And there isn't mentioned anything about it at www.kongehuset.no as far as I can see. I don't think either of her parents have had any engagements (officially anyway) in Copenhagen this month.

So my conclusion is that www.hellomagazine.com isn't a particularly reliable when it comes to Royal facts. I've seen several times that they have often had a few wrong/misinterpreted facts in their Royal articles.

I don't recall seeing anything of an "official" nature that said she was going to visit Copenhagen on her birthday.

Did you see the cute video of Ingrid on the royal norwegian webpage?

(By the way, your comment sounds supportive of Hello ... to raise readership circulation, and could it be said that its succeeded with you? ;) )

ILoveCristina 01-30-2005 06:57 AM

When I saw the photos of her first birthday, it was said they had been taken at Skaugum (in the gardens and inside).

No, I was referring to the Hello Article... which was filled with errors. It said that Ingrid Alexandra had celebrated her birthday with a trip to Copenhagen. Hello seems to have a few too many errors these days, I think.

I totally agree with you! Hello magazine online do have too many errors :mad: And that is a bit stupid, because a lot of people read it, and get the wrong impression of things.

The video shows normal family scenes. Mette Marit watches with Ingrid a book, they play a wooden puzzle together, Marius draws a picture for mummy, Ingrid kisses her brother and the siblings sit together. VERY NORMAL and therefore VERY CUTE!!!
Here is a little preview for you, Larzen (and of course for all others as well):

How cute.

Marius to Haakon: Shall I draw the camera man?
Haakon: Do that.

The book Mette-Marit is reading to Ingrid Alexandra is actually very popular for children in that age - there is even a book later in the series where Karsten and Petra (the main characters in the series) go to Oslo on May 17 (constitution day) and look up at the balcony at the Royal Family.

I really like how they're doing birthday videos for Ingrid. I hope they do this for Sverre too. It's really fun to watch her grow up. And now she can say "mamma" and something that sounds like "dedda". Marius looks every bit the proud older brother. Sverre is very adorable too.

Actually she's either saying "ditt-dei" (titt-tei) which is something like peekabo, or she's saying beibei (baby), I think.

Haakon's comment on the end is also really precious:"You three look very much alike."

Heh, I stand corrected! :) Now that I listen to it again, I agree with you. I think she says "ditt-dei" because Mette-Marit repeats what Ingrid says.
