Ingrid Alexandra's 18th birthday: 21 January, 2022

(..)

The Chief of Defense has decided that the Armed Forces will deliver salutes from all salute stations at 12.00, 21 shots, as the Armed Forces' gift to the princess on her 18th birthday

It appears in a letter from the Armed Forces 'Joint Services dated 3 November, which the Armed Forces' forum has been given access to.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra turns 18 on Friday 21 January 2022.

According to SNL, 21 shots are saluted for various special markings in the royal house. The birthday of all members of the royal family who have reached the age of majority is one of these.

Thanks. I'm not acquainted with the "Armed Forces' forum" where you say you found this announcement. Could you please post either the link to the announcement or the link to the forum?

I found this on another forum, so I do not have a link to share.

Wonder what if any celebrations there will be. When her father turned 18 there where 2 big Dinners/Balls one hosted by the Government and one by his parents. But of course he was then already (if only for a few months) Crown Prince.

Well, his elder sister, just a granddaughter of a monarch when she came of age and never a CPcss, had a similar ball and banquet in 1989 - I guess there was not an invitation from the government, though...?


When it comes to Ingrid, as a future Crown Princess and Queen, there must be something. I just guess there might be some pandemic restricted and something more modern than a court ball introduced by a polonaise etc. The invitation of the government will definitely only be black tie.
The last ball of the RF was, if I remember correctly, in 2007 for TMs 70th birthday. The King and Queen refused making another ball for big events and anniversaries since then, such as the Silver Jubilee of their accession, their 80th birthday celebrations and so on.

It would be very sad, but it might be that they consider a ball at the palace as too elite, too old fashioned...!?

It would be great if they had some form of gala, where her peers and their siblings from other royal houses were also invited.

Was that only a Gala Dinner in 2017. could also be that the King and Queen decided to go without dancing as they are not the youngest anymore. Yes it would be said if there wouldn't be more Balls but sadly i believe that there will be less and lesser.

If i remembver right that was the case when Haakon turned 18. So that his peers were in attendance.
Wouldn't hat be great if for example the dutch King and queen would come with their 2 odler daughter and the danish CrownPrincely Couple with Prince Christian and the spanish King and queen with the Princess of Asturias. And and and ...

At last one can dream of it.

That is exactly what I thought might work well. Perhaps the Belgians could bring 1-2 children along as well.

I want a fancy dancing party with peers and friends for IA, but there's no guarantee what pandemic restrictions will actually allow.

Here is the source for muriel's post. It actually states that the 21-shot salute is for members of the royal house (not royal family).

https://forsvaretsforum.no/forsvaret...exandra/227225



According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it is responsible for managing an event on January 20 in connection with the princess's coming of age on January 21, for which 3.5 million NOK has been budgeted.

Has any information about that event been published?

If her birthday is in fact the 21st and not the 22nd, shouldn't the title of this thread be corrected?

Nine salutes? That's a lot!

The soldiers are gonna love that. It must be fun to fire canons and especially if you do it perfectly.

It seems like the Norwegians plans to go all in celebrating Ingrid's birthday.
Good. It's my impression that she is a very well-liked girl in Norway.
And I think the Norwegians, like everybody else, need to celebrate something, anything. During the dark month of January and with the current Corona-wave having hopefully diminished a lot by then, what is better than celebrating a national symbol?
