The Crown Prince Family:

"We all wish you a happy fourth Sunday in Advent. Today, Prince Sverre Magnus lit the four candles in the Advent wreath."

A question. Why are the Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian royal families showing pictures and videos of Sundays Advent? I know they celebrate it, but we never saw such exposure in the last few years. Is it because of the pandemic?

I'm not from those countries but I have seen an increase in people talking about the advent wreath or advent candles in general on social media. Particularly variation of the themes of each candle being Hope, Peace, Joy, Love.

I would imagine it's an easy way to bring a small celebration of light into a very dark time for many people, and a way to connect when they aren't doing many of the other traditional festive activities we might see at this time of year.

The Scandinavian royals have always been good about letting us have a view of their private Christmas celebrations. Even if just decorating the tree. And then we see them in public at this time of the year. Even if not advent lighting.

I think they have made an extra effort this year, due to covid limiting any public contact and celebration to share more of their holidays with us.

The advent symbolism is also a great one to share in this dark holiday season.

Yes that's possibly a reason and plus there won't be any carol services or Christmas concerts to attend this year.

Here's the whole advent mass:

King Harald said: "Now we are approaching the Christmas holiday, which for many will be a little different this year.
- I hope we take extra good care of each other and show the care and attention we all need. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas".

Thank you all for answering to my question


Thanks for the video. So lovely and beautiful. Ingrid Alexandra looks so mature, stunning hairstyle. She sure speaks very fast, perhaps she was nervous.

I think, speaking a bit faster than normal is just her way of speaking.

Lovely video and photos of the concert; good to see it still went ahead. What is Norway's situation with Coronavirus at the moment?

Ingrid Alexandra was very confident when speaking to me, she didn't sound nervous at all. It was nice to see her speaking - I don't think she's done so before.

"This year, the King and Queen will spend Christmas Eve and the first day of Christmas with their children and grandchildren at Skaugum," the Norwegian Court has announced. "The royal family places great emphasis on complying with both the national and local infection control rules."

"Christmas is approaching with the hope of time to be with family and friends, even when it is cold and dark.

The Royal Family enjoys being outside, and here is a look back at some of the Royal Family's pre-Christmas moments."

"In keeping with tradition, gingerbread is baked both at the Palace and at Skaugum before Christmas.

Gingerbread is one of the best things about Christmas, and over the years, the Royal Family has taken pictures of both their own baking and great gingerbread gifts.

Both at the Castle's kitchen and at Skaugum, the cakes are baked according to a traditional recipe."
