Yes! She "Ingrid" has her own thread! I think the name, Ingrid Alexandra "flows fluentingly and is quite feminine" :heart: :heart: ! BUT, I have a another question of a general nature regarding one photo involving an ambulance. I don't know whether she was going home for the first time and then having to rush back to the hospital or what ~ so, I hope someone can clear this up for me. I just can't make out what is happening there.

The photo shows an ambulance hooked up to "another vehicle of some sort" with one man facing toward the camera and one guy with his back to us, probably to shield her from the press and us ~ and, I think another guy is sliding into the ambulance beside her ~ to make room for a stretcher. Then, there are "two long bent pink things" like skiing boots ?? ... Mette-Marit's legs, maybe .. ?? At one angle, where the two front bent pink things stop, it looks as though it may be Mette-Marit's stomach area which was significantly large ~ as one may have when they're 9 months pregnant. Now, "this figure" is either her "going into" the ambulance or "coming out" of the ambulance.

Can anyone correctly identify this photo? I just can't tell "what's going on" in this photo and this, so far, is only one of three that I've seen. :unsure: :unsure:

TIA!

She was going into the ambulance and away from the hospital. Haakon drove them to the hospital, so no ambulance was used then, and no photographer was allowed up at Skaugum.

Presents for a newborn princess

Flowers and gifts streamed in to little Ingrid Alexandra on Thursday as well-wishers queued in biting cold outside the palace in order to write a greeting in the palace ledger and drop off a token of their affection for Norway's first female heir to the throne.




After ministers and diplomats had registered their congratulations in the palace album ordinary citizens in all ages patiently waited their turn to record their message to the newborn princess and her parents.

Palace staff was busy handling the flood of greetings and gifts.

"There have been lots of flowers and other gifts, letters and drawings from far and near, high and low," said palace information chief Wenche Rasch.

Two of the palace staff are nearly fully occupied with registering and sorting everything that comes in, and first bouquets and presents must go through x-ray security.

Afterwards the gifts and flowers rest in the lower floor of the palace before being sent on to the crown prince couple's residence in Skaugum, in Asker, about 25 minutes drive from Oslo.

The waiting bounty includes toys, books, and home-knitted clothing, all visible signs of the affection the Norwegian people already hold for their future queen.

So for sure her name is Ingrid Alexandra? What a beautiful name. Love it! Haakon and Matte-Marit must be proud. Congrats to all four of them (Marius included).

So does this mean that she is defanitly the future Queen of Norway? After all I am not sure as to wether or not she might be passed up by any future brothers born. Like Martha Louis was...... or has the constitution or family law changed since then?

Thank you.

HM Queen Ingrid I of Norway
HM Queen Ingrid Alexandra I of Norway
HM Queen Alexandra I of Norway

not bad for some future possibilities....

Norways New Princess Gets a Name

22 JANUARY 2004
Two days after Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway welcomed their new daughter, the country's prime minister Kjell Magne Bondevik revealed the little one's name.

The newborn heir to the throne is called Ingrid Alexandra – a moniker, revealed the statesman, which carries significant royal weight.

Ingrid, a popular Norwegian girls' name is also a prominent name in the Bernadotte family tree, including Queen Ingrid, the current Queen Margrethe's mother. "The name… is also used in the crown princess' family, and is therefore a fine combination of the two," explained Bondevik. He also remarked that Alexandra is derived from King Olav, the baby's great-grandfather, who was originally called Alexander.

And as the Norwegian public celebrates the birth of the future queen, first-time dad Crown Prince Haakon has spoken for the first time about his little princess, born on Monday. Calling baby Ingrid "the finest, most beautiful little girl in the world", he said her arrival was "a powerful and wonderful experience".

Norway Welcomes Birth of First Female Heir to the Throne




21 JANUARY 2004
The Norwegian royal family is celebrating today after Princess Mette-Marit gave birth to a baby girl. Both mother and child are said to be doing well after the infant was delivered without complications at 9.14am.

Crown Prince Haakon, who is acting regent while his father King Harald recovers from a recent operation, drove his wife to hospital at 4 o'clock on Wednesday morning. A few hours later, in a swiftly prepared press room at Norway's Rikshospitalet Hospital, the birth was officially announced.

And the new princess has extra-special status, as she is Norway's first ever female heir to the throne. Those eager to know the infant's name will have to wait a while longer, however, because it will not be divulged until a press conference later in the week.

For the meantime, Mette-Marit and Haakon will be enjoying some quality time with their new arrival. Every preparation had been made at the hospital, which says it gained valuable experience from the birth of Princess Martha Louise's baby, Maud Angelica, last April.

Unless we Norwegians abolish the monarchy, or something happens to her, she will be Queen of Norway. That's finite.

The Constitution was changed in 1990, giving the oldest child, regardless of sex, rights to the throne. Unlike in Sweden (with Victoria and Carl Philip) Haakon remained the heir to the throne.

The line of succession to the Norwegian throne is as follows:
1. HRH Crown Prince Haakon.
2. HRH Princess Ingrid Alexandra
3. Princess Märtha Louise
4. Maud Angelica Behn.

Princess Ragnhild, Mrs. Lorentzen, and her offspring, and Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner, and her offspring have no rights to the throne. Ironically, most of them have a right to the British throne. (None of Princess Ragnhild's children, as they all married catholics, and one of Princess Astrid's grandchildren, as it was born out of wedlock.) But no rights to the Norwegian throne.

I hope Martha Louise becomes queen. She'd be awesome.

Maybe she would be, but as that would have some dire consequences for Haakon and Ingrid I hope not. :blink:

Fireweaver 01-22-2004 02:44 PM

I think Martha Louise is very cool, but Long Live CP Haakon and Princess Ingrid Alexandra!

" Maybe she would be, but as that would have some dire consequences for Haakon and Ingrid I hope not"

O, well. Maybe niece will be like aunt. Who knows? But I think the aunt would be just fine.

norwegianne 01-22-2004 03:16 PM

Yep. She's adorable. If you look at baby pictures of Haakon, you'll see the similarities. Mostly around the eyes.

Fireweaver 01-22-2004 03:20 PM

There are worse people to look like :) Her dad's a cutie, and reminds me of his mom, who's a very nice looking lady, so, the wee one's in good company.
