Article from NRK with some quotes translated by me:
https://www.nrk.no/sapmi/kongen_-_-a...var-1.13728876
Quote:
The King: "To take care of Sami language is a collective responsibility''

King Harald V held an insightful speech in connection with the solemn opening of the Sami Parliament.

''Living and viable - Sami language and Sami culture is also a collective responsibility. Here, both the Sami Parliament and the state have important tasks.

Norway as a nation has a duty to ensure that Sami children receive a satisfactory education, in and on Sami,'' said His Majesty King Harald in his speech.

The King attended the opening for the second time together with his son and heir, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon. (The King attended alone in 1993 and with the Queen in 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2009)

It's a royal tradition that the King opens the Sami Parliament, it has been that way since King Olav opened the first Sami Parliament on October 9, 1989.

Thanks eya!

A long article from VG with some quotes trancelated by me:
http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/k...ow/a/24161148/
Quote:
TELENOR ARENA (VG) The smile almost went round with Princess Märtha Louise after the third place in the first ride at Oslo Horse Show

"I was probably the happiest at the entire Telenor Arena," she said at the press conference shortly thereafter.

With mother Queen Sonja and father King Harald as onlookers, the princess participated in an international racing class for amateurs, with obstacles of 1.20 meters.

She competed against 34 riders from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

Just after the prize ceremony, the leader of the Oslo Horse Show, Morten Aasen commented that the princess must have been the happiest person there, already when she passed, or maybe even before.

"I just saw the smile more and more," said Aasen.

"Yes, it was after the last obstacle when I had managed to sit around the swing where I almost falled off," said the princess laughingly.

Dronning Sonja tok en Skavlan
Quote:
On Thursday, Queen Sonja opened the new exhibition ''The Royal Stables. Horses and their equipage 1905 - 1940"

''A great opening of a magnificent exhibition of Horses and equipages in Queen Maud's old stables, which, due to Queen Sonja's 80th birthday earlier this year, was refurbished as King Harald's special gift for his wife - for use as a gallery,'' says TV 2's royal expert, Kjell Arne Totland.

During the opening, Queen Sonja interviewed her own daughter - princess (and horse woman) Märtha Louise.

Mother and daughter sat at a table on a stage with microphones, and Queen Sonja interviewed her daughter about horses.

"Now I almost feel like Skavlan (TV host)!" Said the queen with glimpses in her eye before she began to ask her many questions.

The Royal House Article you posted with some quotes translated by me:
Ildsjeler invitert til Slottet - kongehuset.no
Quote:
Elderly voluntary workers gathered at the Palace today. They were invited by their Majesties the King and Queen to commemorate the great volunteer efforts made - not least by active elderly.

Princess Astrid, Mrs Ferner, is also present during the event called Afternoon Tea, which has evolved into a fine tradition at the Royal Palace.

For the guests, the tour started with a tour of some of the palace's most important rooms, before all were welcomed by King Harald, Queen Sonja and Princess Astrid in the Small Ballroom. From here everyone went into the Great Ballroom where the tables were set.
Photos from some of the greetings in the Small Ballroom:

More about the Afternoon Tea on Tuesday - article from Royal Central:

Read more: Norwegian royals invite elderly volunteers to Oslo Castle for afternoon tea – Royal Central
Quote:
On Tuesday in Norway their majesties, King Harold and Queen Sonja, and Princess Astrid, Mrs Ferner, commemorated the volunteer efforts of the elderly with an English-inspired traditional afternoon tea at Oslo Castle.

During their visits around the country the Norwegian Royal Family has many opportunities to meet volunteers and see the importance of the effort the dedicate to local community projects and the people they benefit. As a way of saying thanks, King Harold and Queen Sonja have developed a tradition of hosting an afternoon tea for groups of elder volunteers to honour them and the work they do.
More on today's event:

Thanks for the photos, iceflower!

I saw it live on TV2 News Channel where Kjell Arne Totland commentated from the palace park. The Princess came arm in arm with her grandmother before she unveiled the sculptures, while CP Mette-Marit held a speech.

Ingrid Alexandra is (as one can see in the Scanpix photos) very close to her grandmother, and she often spend time with the King and Queen at the palace and Bygdøy kongsgård.

A long article from Adresseavisen with quotes translated by me:
- Det var ganske sinnsykt å møte dronningen -adressa.no
Quote:
"It was quite insane to meet the Queen''

"She is the Queen," says Evald Møller Johansen (11). After his sculpture was unveiled in the palace Park, he sat next to Queen Sonja at the palace and ate taco.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra unveiled two new sculptures in Princess Ingrid Alexandra's sculpture park in the palace park on Thursday. One of them was drawn by Evald Møller Johansen (11).

"I was so surprised by how fine the sculpture was. The royals said that too! They thought the sculpture was very exciting,'' says Evald, just after he had finished eating taco at the Queen's table at the palace.

''I don't yet understand that I have met the Queen, the Princess and Mette-Marit,'' says Evald.

At the palace, he sat at the Queen's side, and they talked about art and his school life in Trondheim.
He also said that he looks forward to returning to school again on Monday because he want to tell his friends about it.

I’ve been wondering, is Ingrid Alexandra called by both her names by the royal family? And can we expect, like in the Netherlands, for her to reign as Queen Ingrid Alexandra or just Queen Ingrid?

1. She's called Ingrid, by the family.

2. She will (after what I've heard) reign as Queen Ingrid.

About my above post: It's late here in Norway, and I really have to go to bed, so I used a web translation on the article. But I was not happy with the result when I looked at it now, so I edited the post and translated it myself:

More about the sculpture unveiling yesterday:

Article with video from Royal Central's Oskar Aanmoen:
Princess Ingrid Alexandra unveils new statues in Palace Park in Oslo – Royal Central

TV2 article with some quotes translated by me:
Prinsesse Ingrid Alexandra avduket nye skulpturer i sin egen park
Quote:
It was a clearly proud and happy Princess Ingrid Alexandra who came to unveil two new sculptures in her own sculpture park outside the palace on Thursday. Arm in arm with grandmother Queen Sonja.

"But it's not easy for a 13-year-old to be the focal point on such an occasion - with military fanfare and everything - so I think Ingrid, as she is called in the family, was glad to have her mother Mette-Marit and Grandma Sonja there," said TV2's royal expert Kjell Arne Totland. He adds:

"She also held her grandmother in the arm on the arrival to the park. Sonja does not hide the fact that she loves to be grandma for all her grandchildren - and that she is particularly keen to help her her son's daughter with advice. It's also very clear that the two have a very special chemistry.''

''Our young princess has always been a precocious little lady and now she has become a teenager. Both parents and grandparents have planned that the children at Skaugum should gradually get used to the limelight - and attend public events with the adults when the occasion fits. This is especially true when it comes to Ingrid Alexandra, who is the one who will once follow in her grandfather and father's footsteps. And when she was asked by a journalist a few years ago about what she would be when she grew up, she responded: ''Crown Princess''!, says TV 2's royal expert.
