Occupied Norway. May 17th, somewhere in North-Norway. According to German authorities May 17th celebrations were forbidden, as was waving the Norwegian flag. These farm children defy the ban and stage a private parade.

These pictures are really very lovely! I really like the children's parade... I can't wait for Alexandra and her brother to take part in them!!

May-June is definitely the time to visit Europe!!

Josefine 05-14-2005 01:25 AM

mandy i love these photos
how long does the royal family stand on that belcony?

KikkiB 05-14-2005 06:33 AM

The royal children doesn't take part in the parade on a regular basis (that is, Marius might, since he technically isn't royal). CP Haakon and Princess Märtha went once, and that was when they were Russ (Russ is part of the Norwegian High School graduation - they muck about from late April to 17 of May). Otherwise they are "stuck" on the balcony. I've heard somewhere that they stay on the balcony for 3 hours straight :eek:

National day
 
Hi,

could someone tell me at which time and where it is possible to see the royal family at the Nationalday? Is it only at the castle? And at which time?

Is there something else interesting to experience on this day in Oslo?

Thanks!

marian 04-06-2008 08:14 PM

I know that the royal family celebrates every May 17 a parade in the royal palace. And HAAKON AND METTE MARIT preside at it from Skaugum, their residence, the same day. They will be presents in both acts. Ingrid already appears in the royal palace, so then, she will be queen some day. And I believe that for the norwegian is a beautiful experience and a day interesting.

dalia 05-08-2008 07:57 PM

A 34 picture gallery can be found from aftenposten.no on this link:- 17th May - past and present - Aftenposten.no . Some of the pictures have already been posted previously. And another gallery from Aftenposten.no titled (Royals celebrate the 17th of May) in 2002 can be found here:- Royals celebrate the 17th of May - Aftenposten.no .

Thanks, the pictures are lovely! This might be a silly question but will Hakon and Mette marits children be present? I notices Hakon and his sister present years ago when they were still kids, so maybe their children will be there as well?

sofajr 05-14-2008 05:48 AM

usually Ingrid Alexandra is presented, but who knows maybe Sverre and Marius will appear this year. :flowers:
anyway the whole crownprince's family greets the parade in Skaugum every year.

It's only the royal house appearing at the palace balcony, according to the programme on the website - the king, the queen, crown prince, crown princess and hereditary princess. :flowers:
