I though she handled herself very well! She was open, sweet and very candid. She didnít seem shy as she often does in public with many people around here. It was nice to hear her thoughts about royal life and other things.

Iíve translated most of it for you all:

About the pre-Christmas days: PI: says theyíve spent time before Christmas wrapping gifts and preparing food. CH: weíve been enjoying the days especially when itís calmer without the rush.

About traditions they do every year: PI: Gift calendar, kept out in the hall. She got a kinder egg the first day. The Crown Prince asks what the most boring thing she has received is and she answers a pair of socks and a hals (Iím not sure what this is called in English, but itís something children wear around their necks when itís cold (not a scarf, but it does the same job). CH: they get things they actually need in the calendar too. PI: Boring!

They got questions from viewers as well.

Is it fun to be a royal? PI: Yes, sometimes itís very fun, other times itís pretty boring. For example what I think is very boring is photo-shoots. When one are sitting and sitting and sitting, without taking the perfect photo, and they make adjustments and adjustments. And my little brother Magnus heís not able to sit still. So first weíre sitting, and then that picture isnít perfect and then Magnus runs off and we have to get him and start all over again. CH: Last time it went very well. And we have to do that from time to time.

Do you get tired waving on May 17: Itís not that we get tired from waving precisely, but I and Magnus are allowed to go inside about half way in because it can get coldÖitís not tiring to wave, but itís tiring to stand there just watching. CH: It can take quite a long time. But itís also a nice time and May 17 is a special day with many happy people walking pass you, and thatís nice. Itís not many countries that do as we do, so itís a special day.

What do you like best for dinner? PI: Lots of different things, sausages, Iím fond of meat and soups. CH: tomato soup.

Whatís it like being a princess at school? PI: At school, what do you mean? Presenter: Are treated as everybody else or do get a red carpet rolled out for you? PI: Iím treated as a regular girl and Iím not certain that everybody recognizes me either because Iím just like everybody else and everybody treats me as if I am like everybody else. So in reality I am a normal girl, and when I was younger I didnít even know that I was a princess.

What do you want to do when you grow up? PI: I want to a Crown Princess.
Whatís your favourite subject at school? PI: Math and art.

Do you have many servants? PI: No, no one. CH: we are lucky; we do have people who help us with different things. PI: but we donít have servants really, they donít like being called servants for certain! CH: Have you done that? PI: Yes!
Thank you for the translation. She seems like a delightful little girl and I do wish I could have understood the language. But, the translation helped so much.

Thank you for translating! Had no idea what the English word for it was, it's not a word you throw around in just an average conversation

This article is a summery of the interview with the Crownprincess (the complete interview you can read in the thread of her current events), but in this short article you can read how the royals celebrate the Christmas: they decorate the tree together, they go around the tree singing songs, they eat different type of fishes and after visit the church they eat pork. It seems a really lovely family-celebration.

Thank you so much for providing a translation of the video. I really love it! Ingrid seems like a very fun young lady but also very sensitive. I look forward to more interviews with her in the future!
