Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway: 18 years old and already queen of hearts


As she approaches her 18th birthday celebrated on January 21, 2022, Crown Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway is establishing herself as the new star of the European elite. Presentation.

She is not no longer quite a child, but not yet a queen. Damn photogenic, without being a porcelain princess, evidenced by her immersion in the military forces of her kingdom, last November, or her fight with the Covid-19, without complaining, a few months earlier. Happy birthday to Ingrid Alexandra from Norway, eldest daughter of Crown Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit! If the pandemic has forced the royal family to postpone the festivities planned for its 18th birthday at a later date, King Harald V’s granddaughter sparked a stir among her future subjects by appearing in a trailer on Norwegian television. This January 21, 2022, the day of his majority, the public channel NRK will indeed broadcast a great interview with the princess, followed by a documentary on the young woman.

Less shy than Leonor of Spain, another future sovereign whose budding romance fascinates the Spanish media. More interested in her job than Catharina Amalia of the Netherlands, who does not feel ready to succeed her father Willem-Alexander… Filmed at the Skaugum Palace, Ingrid Alexandra already demonstrates, in the unveiled extract, a real ease in front of the cameras. No need to see her wearing a tiara, on the occasion of a grand gala dinner at the palace in Oslo, as was originally planned, to realize that she has already the stuff of a queen.

A modern crown princess who loves extreme sports and advocates for the protection of flora and fauna

The crown princess seems to have inherited from her mother, a commoner whose turbulent past contrasted with the other European princesses, her great relaxation… but also her strong character. This is a quality in the eyes of the Norwegians: Ingrid Alexandra, for whom her father Haakon put an end to the rule of male primogeniture, is a “bad ass princess”. Do not rely on her gestures, still reserved, when she lit, at the age of 10, the flame of the Olympic Games in Lillehammer, in 1994. Growing up, the young woman not only took passion for skiing, surfing, kickboxing or piloting fighter planes. She also campaigns for the defense of the environment – like Prince William whom she welcomed, with Kate Middleton, in Oslo in 2018 – and the animal protection.

Ingrid Alexandra also knew how to demonstrate the gestures of a future sovereign full of compassion, when she comforted her cousin Maud, daughter of Princess Märtha Louise, at the funeral of her father Ari Behn, in January 2020. In the kingdom of the fjords, this momentum warmed hearts. We do not yet know of an official boyfriend. Her little brother Sverre Magnus and her half-brother Marius, born from a previous relationship of their mother, are the only boys with whom she appears for the moment. It is not the suitors who will be missing, we predict…
