Lovely images and nice that the crown princely couple & children sermed to have toured the city.

Was there a crowd in front of the palace or were they waving for the camera?

There was a small crowd of a few hundred people behind the bars -not comparable with the 1000ds of people lining the parade route in Oslo before Corona!
The most important thing was that the RF was the focal point of all norwegians, both taking place physically or taking part as viewers at their TV sets!

Last 17 May, the King and Queen received over 4,000 drawings from children in Oslo and a selection of the drawings will be exhibited in Slottsparken.

King Harald and Queen Sonja looked through the drawings that can now be seen along the "Broadway" through the park.

King Harald and Queen Sonja hosted the Oslo Municipality's concert on 17 May this year.

The concert was recorded at the Oscarshall Palace outside Oslo city center this week.

If you really look closer in the begining of the video you can see the lady running after the royal car with the 2 dogs.

Cant say I'm impressed with Sverre not wearing the national/traditional costume. Maruis did well into his teens.

Given all the covid restrictions they still made it a special day

But King Harald also never wears traditional costume. If Sverre does not like to dress himself in folklore, that is his good right.

Of course it is Magnus´right. Still it´s a bit of a pity.


Prcss Ingrid A. is definitely the prettiest Princess of her generation.

It would have been nice to see Sverre in the traditional costume - I’ve always thought the men’s costume is quite smart looking, and it nicely complements the women’s more colourful dress. But obviously it’s a personal choice, and Sverre looks nice in his suit.

I agree that Ingrid is a beautiful girl; she got the best features from both parents. She and her mother both wear the traditional dress very well.

And it’s nice to see the family is still including the dog in the celebrations!

Here is Nina Berglund's report of the second consecutive scaled-down National Day, noting the royal couple's efforts to appear for the public despite the pouring rain.

https://www.newsinenglish.no/2021/05...t-17th-of-may/

Quote:
All radio and TV stations carried the vastly scaled-down royal celebration of Norway’s Constitution Day on Monday. [...]

At precisely noon, canons roared from the nearby Akershus Fortress and Castle and the royals sang Norway’s national anthem, with everyone watching encouraged to sing along.

Many reportedly did, from their own living rooms, out on balconies or in gardens in towns and cities where the weather was better (in Stavanger, the sun was shining). Norwegians all over the country also shared photos of songfests at noon, from mountaintops, coastal villages or indoor luncheons.

[...]

Not everyone is cooperating, however, with police reporting on Monday that they stopped a protest demonstration that was heading towards the palace. It was called an “Alternative 17th of May Parade,” mounted by those opposing and often defying Corona restrictions.

On a side note, Sverre Magnus is called Magnus by his family.

In honor of National Day, newsinenglish.no also printed an interesting article about the history of the Norwegian flag.

https://www.newsinenglish.no/2021/05...f-flag-waving/


Quote:
One local resident commented: “All the people living there fly the flag whenever one of them has something to celebrate.” Many Norwegians observe official flag days like New Year’s Day and some religious holidays, and it’s common for Norwegians to fly the flag on their birthdays or put strings of flags on the Christmas tree,

[...] Norwegian kings took part in the Crusades in the Middle East to liberate Jerusalem and other holy sites from Muslim occupation. They were perhaps inspired to use the Christian cross for their own banner designs at home.

[...] in 1821 when Fredrik Meltzer, a politician from Bergen, convinced Parliament to choose the flag that Norway has today. Meltzer reckoned that red, white and blue were already the colours of several freedom-loving democratic nations like the United States, Britain, and the Netherlands. A cross would also reflect the tradition and style already in use by Norway’s neighbours. It was, moreover, a polite design, combining the blue in Sweden’s flag (albeit much darker) with the red and white of Denmark’s. It was a simple pattern. And it was cheap, Meltzer pointed out – it could be made by cutting up a Danish flag and adding some blue material.

[...]

The Norwegian flag and its use remained a problem in the union, though. [...] Both countries could use their own flag, but with a clear symbol of their union. That wasn’t popular in either country, and the solution was nicknamed sildesalaten (herring salad) referring to its resulting strange mix of colours. Led by nation-builders like Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, flag politics got very divisive towards the end of the 1800s, adding to the forces that finally blew Norway’s union with Sweden apart in 1905.

[...] The rapidly growing Labour Party, dominated by communists at the time, saw the national flag as a bourgeois passion. Defining the church as a tool for oppression, radicals didn’t like the symbolism of a Christian cross either. [...]

Labour’s moderate wing eventually pushed through a “take back the flag” strategy in the 1930s, clearing the way for Norwegian flags in May Day parades along with the socialist red ones. That turned out to be a fortunate move a few years later, with the outbreak of World War II, the occupation of Norway by Germany and the rise to power of a puppet Nazi party in Norway known as Nasjonal Samling (NS). [...] That led to conflicting policies like allowing the Norwegian flag to fly from poles, but not hand-held ones. Demonstratively wearing garments in the flag’s clours was controversial, too. The red nisselue, a red wool hat worn by Norway’s version of Santa Claus (julenissen) and popular among common folk during the war years, was downright verboten by the Germans. After liberation in May 1945, Norway exploded in a formidable flag feast, re-establishing the flag as a tool for the people.

I admire the Norwegians, so many of them wear their bunad on the National Day, at the confirmations and family celebrations.
For instance, a huge sports star in Norway, the Olympic and World Champion in cross country skiing, Johannes Høsflot Klæbo, wears every year bunad on the National Day and publishes photos of him and his girlfriend.

Thank you, Tatiana Maria! People always get that wrong. Perhaps because the tabloids always refer to the Prince as "Sverre"...?
