Thanks ROYAL NORWAY for the translation!

I saw the Princess live talking to the reporter and I was impressed. Of course I did not understand what she was saying but was so comfortable to speak, maybe because it was and the subject that interested her very much.

What a lovely day for father-daughter!

The trip to polaria went with dog sledding. The princess got control and the Crown Prince was a passenger.

Quite bizar that something small like baptizing a ship is televised live (even when it's done by the hereditary princess).

When Ingrid-Alexandra was younger I wondered whether the role of queen would be a good for her but the approach of letting her undertake engagements once in a while seems to work really well and she is doing them with great confidence especially considering her young age.

Ingrid Alexandra seems like a lovely young lady; quite confident and sociable. She seems to have a particular fondness for dogs - I loved the photos of her meeting the sledge dogs.

Well, Norway is a small country, so you cannot compare it with bigger nations where every now and then more or less "important" things seem to happen all the time. So in that regard, for Norway this was an event not to underestimated:


A highly modern researching ship, carrying the name of the future monarch, launched by the next heiress at one of her first major engagements and further more 2 government ministers also present, this is quite something that could well and truely be televised!
For me life coverages can provide you much better the feeling and atmosphere of the certain event which is covered, which short 1 or 2 minute clips never could!

You're very welcome - and thanks for the photos!

Read more here about: Polaria - Wikipedia (been there myself BTW, an amazing experience).

The Princess (accompanied by the Crown Prince) was there to attend a mini-seminar about the Arctic, for young people.

Well, as I mentioned in post 20, every ''major/special'' royal event/engagement is televised here now (with the exception of inward state visits, if it's not from a major country). - And yes, I will categorize the baptism of the world's most advanced icebreaking polar-research-vessel as a ''special'' (although not major) royal event/engagement in a country with a population of around 5.3 million.

Agree! - But regardless of whether the ship had been named after the Crown Prince, or been christened by the 14-year-old hereditary-princess or not, it would have been broadcasted anyway.
How do I know that? Well, because almost all major royal christenings/launchings of ships/airplanes and stuff like that have been televised in the past, especially when the King does it.

Any idea how many people watch the live coverage on tv?

To me this seems like something that would be a news item in the 8 o clock news (which is the main one in the Netherlands) not live coverage worthy.

Well, both Royal Norway and I provided you with some reasons why it might have been covered live which most of us, I´ m sure, are very happy about...!

Well, I wasn't contradicting that (and see why the topic itself made it even more newsworthy than just the fuyure queen baptizing a ship) but still think it would have been handled differently elsewhere but that's fine. It was covered live so apparently those in charge of Norwegian television were willing to spend money to do so, that's why I wondered how many people actually watched if this was such a big news story in Norway. Any thoughts?

Well, that's difficult to say! - But there's a lot of retirees and working-people (from their offices) who watches live-events in the afternoon (such as major royal engagements, parliamentary-debates in the Storting, political press-conferences, etc) on NRK1 (Norway's largest TV-Channel), on NRK2 and on TV2 News Channel (which has a daily viewership of around 400,000).

NRK (the state-owned Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation): Is funded through licence, and is therefore instructed by the Storting (viewer-potential or not) to cover all major news/cultural events that are of importance to the nation (such as a ''royal christening of the world's most advanced icebreaking polar-research-vessel'').
The TV2 Group (Norway's largest commercial media company): Receives state-funding, and is therefore instructed by the Storting to do much of the same.

English article by Oskar Aanmoen: Princess Ingrid Alexandra baptises new research vessel – Royal Central.

BTW: His translations of what the Princess said are pretty poor, so see post 20 for some ''more correct'' ones from me (if I may say so).

Thanks iceflower!

The annual Church Parade was also attended by the military-leadership, while the sermon was held by Guard-priest, Major Kenneth Henriksen.

Queen Sonja and Crown Prince Haakon attended the hand-over/opening of Oslo's year as the European Green City of the Year (2019) today.

I managed to catch the ceremony live on Facebook and found it really good. My Norwegian is improving to the point where I can pick out the random words I know (but still not understand the full sentence. I'll get there )

Here's a link to the video, if you want to see nice Oslo scenery and listen to great Oslo musical acts. Her Majesty and the CP didn't speak, but you can see them entering at around 8:10, see them clapping throughout the ceremony, and then leaving.

Thanks Iceflower!

And yes, The Mayor of Oslo, Marianne Borgen, invited 400 guests with Sámi-background to mark the day with a brunch in Oslo City Hall's main hall this morning (a tradition since 2003), which was also attended by The Prime Minister and The Bishop of Oslo who, in addition to the mayor, gave speeches. - While Sámi artists and children stood for the entertainment.

Sonja seems to be suffering from carpal tunnel or a wrist injury (see pic 1.) Is this a recent thing, or is it a reoccurring injury?
