Princess Astrid remember:


"On 8 May 1945, Norway was again a free country. Princess Astrid was in full swing with her homework at Pook's Hill outside Washington, when she was the first in the US to hear that the Germans had surrendered. - In the background, I had the radio on. Suddenly the broadcast breaks with the message that "the Germans have surrendered - Europe is free again". I stormed out and cried, "Now the war is over, we are free, we are free." Mother asked, "Did they say anything about Norway?" I couldn't answer that, because I had run out before I heard the whole message, says Princess Astrid.

Right after the phone rang. It was from the embassy that could confirm that Norway had again become a free country.

Crown Prince Olav set foot on Norwegian soil again on May 13, as the first in the Royal Family. Princess Astrid followed and went ashore in Oslo with King Haakon, his mother and his siblings on 7 June 1945."

"Today, 95 organizations, teams and associations across the country receive support for social and humanitarian initiatives from Crown Princess Märtha's Memorial Fund. It happens on the day 120 years after Crown Princess Märtha was born.

- It is a pleasure for me that every year in connection with my mother, Crown Princess Märtha's birthday, I am so lucky that I am allowed to distribute money for social and humanitarian initiatives in organizations and associations from all over Norway. This year it is 120 years since my mother was born, and that makes this year's awards special to me, says Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner. "

I think Astrid is the first modern Norwegian royal (maybe ever?) to reach the milestone.

Yes. Her father lived to the age of 87 and her paternal grandfather to 85.

Prinsesse Astrid fyller 90 år - Det norske kongehus

Quote:
Prinsesse Astrid fyller 90 år

Prinsesse Astrid, fru Ferner fyller 90 år i dag.

12.02.2022

Prinsesse Astrid, fru Ferner representerer fortsatt Hans Majestet Kongen og Kongehuset. Hun har flere offisielle oppdrag hvert år, er styreleder i Kronprinsesse Märthas Minnefond og har tolv beskytterskap som hun følger opp. Prinsesse Astrid har gjennom sitt virke lagt særlig vekt på omsorg for de svake i samfunnet og på inkludering av dem som er litt annerledes.

Prinsessen har stor glede av sport og friluftsliv, og er sammen med Hans Majestet en trofast gjest i Holmenkollen og ved andre store idrettsarrangement. Da Prinsesse Astrid fylte 70 år ble hun tildelt ærespensjon av regjeringen.

Prinsesse Astrid giftet seg i 1961 med Johan Martin Ferner (1927 -2015). Paret fikk fem barn, og Prinsesse Astrid har syv barnebarn og et oldebarn.

Translation, corrections are welcome.

Princess Astrid turns 90 years old

Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner turns 90 today.

12 February 2022

Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner continues to represent His Majesty the King and the Royal House. She undertakes several official engagements each year, chairs the board of Crown Princess Märtha's Memorial Fund and has twelve patronages with which she maintains contact. Through her work Princess Astrid has placed special importance on caring for the weak in society and on including those who are a little different.

The Princess greatly enjoys sports and outdoor life, and together with His Majesty faithfully attends Holmenkollen and other major sporting events. When Princess Astrid turned 70 years old she was granted an honorary pension from the government.

Princess Astrid married Johan Martin Ferner (1927-2015) in 1961. The couple had five children, and Princess Astrid has seven grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

I don't think the portraits are exactly new, since Astrid can be seen in the same dress with her dog at post #147 from last June, but if they are technically released today, maybe.

How much she looked like Harald when she was young! (They still have a resemblance but not quite that strong.)
