For me it starts automatically.

Many of the pictures don't work anymore so here is a gallery from Scanpix at Sesam.

Ingrid certainly cried during her baptism, didn't she? Well, it's a rarity if a baby doesn't. She was a cutie, and she still is.

I also recognized one of the hymns that they sang. In America, it's called "Be Thou My Vision" and it's my favorite hymn.

Poor little Ingrid! I wonder what was wrong, if she was tired or colicky or just cranky. King Harald certainly looks proud of his little granddaughter, and Mette=Marit looks so proud of Marius when he is carrying the candle.

I don't understand Norwegian, but why weren't Frederik and Felipe there?
I know they both got married in 2004, but that was in May, and the baptism was in April. Isn't someone supposed to stand in as proxy if any of the grandparents can't be there? I just think it's odd that they weren't there!

Queen Sonja's gift: a necklace with a heart pendant, which she herself got from King Harald when Haakon was born in 1973, and two sets of earrings (one with pearls and one with diamonds) - all in a box decorated with lovely photos and roses

We must change that picture, and Ingrid Alexandra will be the personification of the new picture that shall step forward. Here she will have an open space, with many possibilities.

I think the King is the sole male head of a royal or noble house who has taken such a clear position in favor of gender equality in the succession. I deeply respect him for it.
