In January, Princess Ingrid Alexandra turned 18—the age of majority for the Royal Family, which means she could begin to undertake official duties on behalf of the King. The official celebration of the Princess' birthday on January 21 was postponed due to the pandemic. Now, Princess Ingrid Alexandra's 18th birthday is being celebrated on June 16 and 17.

    Love the 15th photo. King Harald is looking at his granddaughter and you can sense the love and pride that he feels for her. Princess Ingrid Alexandra is a beautiful young lady and her simple gown highlights her beauty. Her earrings are gorgeous!!

      Canadien fan, you are absolutely right. I saw some pictures in a norwegian newspaper and there was that same photo, a bit larger. You can clearly see how lovely they are looking at each other and it was written under the photo too.
      Ingrid Alexandra is so lovely and beautiful and looks so very, very happy. Her dress is gorgeous. Everybody is looking good. Mette-Marit has a beautiful dress although I do not like high necklines in gowns. (Just me)

    What a beautiful young woman. Her appearance is perfect in every way. And, of course, the pride and happiness evident in the facts of her parents and grandparents (especially her grandfather) is heartwarming. I can hardly wait to see Princess Ingrid Alexandra in her tiara. (Debra)

    Absolutely lovely! Princess Ingrid Alexandria looks wonderful in her gown and shawl, and it's so nice to see the whole family turn out to celebrate and support her. Looking forward to tomorrow's celebrations as well.

    Ingrid is wearing Monique Lhullier Embellished Strapless Tulle Gown, MM Erdem Scarlet Strawberry-Print Silk-Voile Gown and the Queen her bespoken dress made of her own graphic print from her 80 year celebration. Ingrid Alexandra was a dream to watch.

  11. Ingrid Alexandra is so gorgeous in her dream of a dress. Doesn't hurt that she is a natural beauty. I feel they all look great in their different styles. Must say I'm quite excited and looking forward to tonight when we get to see Elisabeth from Beligium, Catharina-Amalia from the Netherlands and Ingrid Alexandra in tiara and orders for the first time. What tiara will they wear? Their own? Heirlooms? I have seen rumours that say Ingrid will get Princess Ingeborg's Boucheron circle tiara as a gift from the King for her 18th birthday. Tonight we will find out. Will be a brilliant evening.

  12. The NRF have released new photos of Ingrid in the tiara she will wear tonight and it's the Boucheron. She looks like a Queen. Gorgeous. https://www.kongehuset.no/aim/kongehuset2/files/b/4/f/c28c9857ccea19bc7a23816881b3662ab5653c1d7b/b4fc28c9857ccea19bc7a23816881b3662ab5653c1d7b.jpg/Scale?geometry=680x1280%3E https://www.kongehuset.no/aim/kongehuset2/files/7/1/8/ea1cd809280f63c57cbfe6352366a62ab5620bdf49/718ea1cd809280f63c57cbfe6352366a62ab5620bdf49.jpg/Scale?geometry=375x%3E&Set:quality=100

    1. Thank you for the links. A big surprice that the Boucheron tiara has been given to princess Ingrid. It was late princess Ragnhild`s private tiara, and it is a great present from her family in Brasil

      It was always a part of the testament from CP Märtha that after Ragnhilds death the tiara should be returned to the royal family. So will also Astrids.

    All that I read here about Princess Ingrid Alexandra is true. She is a beauty and the white dress she is wearing let her shine even more. Unfortunately I cannot say that Mette Marit's dress is beautiful. I don't like it. The neckline is too high closed, the color is not appropriate for a event like this. I love the way her hair is done but again not for her daughter's 18th birthday. It was after I wrote all this that I found out that MM's dress is designed by Erdem. I never liked the dresses by this label. Märtha Louise was also very beautiful in het fuchsia pink dress. Queen Sonia looks good in her white and blue dress. I am looking forward to find out what everybody will wear tonight, especially the young princesses and what tiara's they will wear.

      May I ask you what colour and what kind of hair are appropriate for that event? I must be very stupid because I didn't know there was some rules for colour's and hair. It was not a tiara event.

  19. Nice to se that princess Martha Louise and her fiance also attended, and the princess was very beautiful in her pink dress. I am wishing all the best for them and for her lovely girls!

    What a joy to come home to see these fabulous photos. Ingrid Alexandra is just gorgeous and her dress is amazing. CP Mette-Marit looks wonderful. I love the colour of the dress but wish it had a different neckline. The Queen’s dress is lovely but I don’t think the wrap improves it. Sad to see Princess Astrid in a wheel chair but good that she was there. Prince Sverre Magnus has suddenly grown from a stocky child into a handsome young man.

    As said above she is a natural beauty. The dress is perfection for her. I am amazed at how confident she looks. She is only 18 and already acts like a queen. So graceful and natural with a gorgeous smile.
