The king looks very frail indeed. In the family picture I had a hard time recognizing him...

Very Lutheran I'd say.

I've been to Danish christenings and confirmations and I agree, they're no jolly affairs. Maybe that's why the parties afterwards are always magnificent.

Probably both? Maud and Ingrid-Alexandra are sometimes seen together at family events, so it would make sense that Sverre Magnus and Leah also spend quite some time together with Emma being the younger one without a royal cousin close in age.

Thanks JR76. Scandinavia seems to be more relaxed about face mask usage than the rest of Europe.

For Sverre Magnus' confirmation Queen Sonja, Ingrid Alexandra, Märtha Louise and Leah wore Telemark bunads. It's the region of origin of Sonja's mother, she usually wears that region's bunad, as does Märtha Louise, and Sonja and Harald gifted Ingrid Alexandra and Leah with Telemark bunads for their confirmations as well.
Märtha Louise usually wears the corresponding headpiece, it was an exception that she did not yesterday. At Ingrid Alexandra's confirmation, Marius' girlfriend also wore a Telemark bunad, thus the headpiece. Yesterday, she wore a bunad that I think is from Vestfold (which is apparently her region of origin). Mette-Marit wore a Kristiansand bunad yesterday (as she usually does) because that's where she is from and the headpiece doesn't go with that bunad.
I don't know if the "rules" for wearing a bunad in Norway differs from those wearing a "folkdräkt" (fold dress) in Sweden, but in Sweden a married woman is supposed to have her hair covered as a sign of her being married, but not all who wears them today are following the rules, for example princess Madeleine have been seen with her hair down even after she has married and had children.
Maybe in Norway there are other items with the bunad that shows the difference if a woman is being married or not, and that it's accepted that a married woman didn't have to cover her hair.
The "krans" (wreath) or bands on the younger, unmarried women is worn as a festive item, not to show whether they are married or not, even in Sweden unmarried girls/women could wear a wreath or bands on their heads at festive occations.
The reason why a married woman in Sweden (and Finland) should be having her hair covered when wearing a folk dress is because that were the rules for women living on the country side, as well as in many smaller towns, a virtuous married woman covered her hair always, at the time from which the folk dresses originate. In fact that was the custom among some women in Sweden and Finland outside the major cities a bit into the 20th century.

The thing about married women covering their hair goes back the Viking Age.
While young and unmarried girls wore their hair uncovered.
Also, young women in particular tended to wear sleeves down to just below the elbows.
Bare forearms were considered sexy.

What is going on with his education? As far as I understand, he dropped out of his course in the US. Is he pursuing any post-secondary degree in Norway now?

He seems rather lost switching jobs and sectors - hopefully he finds out what he really is interested in doing for a longer period of time (I don't think working as a motorcycle mechanic can fund his lifestyle but probably his parents take care of that at least for the moment?); and doesn't seem that interested in any tertiary education.
