Norway celebrates Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s 18th birthday

The postponed celebrations of the 18th birthday of the hereditary Norwegian Princess Ingrid Alexandra began with a festive dinner hosted by the government. Senior representatives of Norwegian politics as well as young representatives from all over the country celebrated the granddaughter of King Harald V (85) this evening at a dinner at the Deschmann Library in Oslo.

In her speech, the Princess thanked everyone who contributed to the event and the nearly 200 invited guests from all over the country. The royal family had previously arrived outside the library to get a brass band copy of ABBA’s song “Mamma Mia”. There was also Ingrid’s aunt Alexandra Martha Louise (50) and partner Derek Ferret (47), who were recently engaged.

Ingrid Alexandra had already reached the age of majority on January 21. Larger ceremonies in her honor had to be canceled due to the pandemic, which is why they are now being held five months later. The princess is second in line to the Norwegian throne behind her father, Crown Prince Haakon (48 years old), and thus is the country’s first female heir to the throne.
