The day is here, and I have just watched the Crown Prince family outside of Skaugum. They all looked lovely and as last year they all wore Bunads. The Crown Prince and Prince Sverre Magnus both wore Asker Bunads, while The Crown Princess, Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Marius wore, and I hope I remember corectly, Agder Bunads.

It's cold and the weather is cloudly and slighty snowy of all things.

Ingrid Alexandra looked like it was way to early in the morning for her, and that she did not want to be out in the snowy:ohmy: weather, she was quite shy and hiding a little behind Haakons legs and he had to lift her up much of the time. Sverre Magnus looked very calm and unaffected with it all and stood by himself, atleast the parts I saw it.

Received the children's parade in snow at Skaugum

Princess Ingrid Alexandra has outgrown her Hardanger costume, which she received as a baptism gift, and could for the first time use her new Agder bunad which was a gift from Kristiansand municipality.

I did remember wrong in my earlier post, it is Princess Ingrid Alexandra who wore a Asker bunad, and not Prince Sverre Magnus. He wore an Agder bunad, like the rest of the family did.

This a video of The Crown Prince family at Skaugum, and underneat the video there are two links, both showing live from Oslo and other places in Norway, and one can sometimes see glimpses of The Royal Family.

I think they all look lovely, and I really like the Bunad the Crown Princess is wearing. Also she and Princess Ingrid Alexandra look beautiful at the balcony. Prince Sverre Magnus has grow a lot, and my first thought when I saw him was that he looks like Marius, and I have always thought he resembels his fathers family.

I feel sorry for Ingrid. ;) She looks really annoyed by waking up so early and standing outside in the snow.


On the Balcony MM wears a light blue /grayish coat and the cream colored hat.
Sonja recycled a white/creamcolored small hat and wears the hideous ghost cape again ;) .

Mette Marit actually looks nice with that hat. Usually I don't like hair to show under such a thing, but considering that MM hair is so beautiful she is able to pull it off IMO .

Forgive my ignorance, but were Marius and Sverre not included on the balcony? I don't see them. Sverre really looks like a little viking (well, the impression I have of them), very cute.

The weather seems far from ideal though, as is the Queen's fashion sense of today.

I suppose this would be an appropriate youtube clip to mark the occassion:

No, they weren't. The king decided that it was just going to be the Royal House on the balcony and not the royal family - ie. it's the King, the Queen, the Crown Prince & spouse and the heir. It's part of the thing they have about keeping it small.

Here is anothyer link, this time of the Royal House at the Palace. The King, The Queen, The Crown Prince, The Crown Princess and Princess Ingrid Alexandra, as well as the people greeting the royals and singing:) The young Princess is on her mothers arm, waveing to the people while they sing. She looks very sweet.

I'm afraid you forgot to post the link vestfoldilja :flowers:

So if I get it correctly, little Sverre is not part of the Royal House? I'm confused :eek:

No, Prince Sverre Magnus, as well as Princess Martha is not part of the Royal House. The Royal House is only The King, The Queen, The Crown Prince, The Crown Princess and Princess Ingrid Alexandra; The Monarch and his heirs with consorts. Prince Sverre Magnus and Princess Martha with her family and the King's sisters and Marius is part of the Royal Family. This is also in part at least why Prince Sverre Magnus is only His Highness, though only in English, and not His Royal Highness. In Norwegian he is only titled as Prince.
