At my confirmation in the Church of Sweden the boys wore white suits and the girls white dresses. Over this we all wore floor-length white capes that were loaned from the local parish. The cape was influenced by a similar dress in the Church of Norway and was introduced in the Church of Sweden in 1959. The cape is practical in the sense that it allows even those who can't afford new clothes to dress up for the ceremony and it signifies that, rich or poor, we're all equal in the eyes of G*d. It's also seen as an adult version of the christening gown signifying that you confirm the christening.

Interesting that Juliane Snekkestad, Marius' girlfriend, will also be present. It is a sign that it is integrated into the family.

In the guest list for Princess Ingrid Alexandra's confirmation, Juliane Snekkestad was not only listed under "Family", but her name appeared in first place in the "Family" section, above even close relatives. Earlier in the relationshp, the Crown Prince Couple released a public statement defending her from what they viewed as a critical headline. So indeed, in practice the Royal Family appears to treat her as if she were a fiancÚe.

It's definitely a sign that her relationship with Marius is serious; maybe even they already live together.

Yes, they have lived together for at least two years, including in a house which was, per the explanation here, likely to have been purchased for them by the Crown Prince and Crown Princess.

Yes, it was translated in 1978 and was included in the Norwegian hymnal of 1985.

It's also been translated into Swedish and was a Top 10 hit in 2003 for Swedish singer Peter J÷back (friend of the Bernadottes) Norwegian singer Sissel Kyrkjeb°.

And now the hymn "Zion's Daughter" is played.

I suppose all confirmants were already blessed by the bishop.

I see the king very weak with difficulties to walk. Is martha-louise having motor problems?

This is a nice one, although I find it sad that Magnus didn┤t wear national costume, as Queen Sonja told last year every grandchild will receive one for his/ her confirmation from her and the King.

The national costumes are really beautiful and refreshing to see tradition not being scrapped by the NRF.

^^^^^ I agree the women all look wonderful and the workmanship in those bunards is truly amazing. Sadly, it seems the men eschew the traditional garb just as those in the SRF do.

Yes, king Harald looks frail, he has lost weight.

Some nice photos. I do wish Sverre was wearing the national costume. Unlike in Sweden, we do see the Norway royal men in them at times. It would have been nice to see that today like his sister.


Interesting gifts. I am sure his favorite, like any teen boy, will be the.....book on the supreme court You know you are a royal when you get works of art and books on supreme court history. But I am sure he will enjoy the canoe and surfboard.

Nice that so much family could get together for day during this.

The king continues to look frail. It must be hard on Haakon with his wife ill, and his dad so frail.
