Happy 19th birthday Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway!

Happy 19th birthday Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway! Royal is seen at a skydive after putting it on her ‘bucket list when she turned 18’ in new photos to mark her big day

Norway’s Royal Household has celebrated the birthday of Princess Ingrid Alexandra with two new photographs – including one of her at a skydive.

The second-in-line to the throne turned 19 on 21 January and to mark the occasion the images were shared on the Norwegian Royal Family’s Instagram account. 

One of the pictures showed the princess dressed in a brown all-in-one during a parachute exercise, while another captured her dressed in a knitted cream jumper, teamed with a dazzling silver heart pendant on a pearl chain.

The caption, when translated from Norwegian to English, read: ‘At the top of the bucket list is skydiving, Princess Ingrid Alexandra said when she turned 18. This summer, she got to try herself from a height of 20,000 feet during a so-called HAHO jump (High Altitude, High Opening) together with the Defence Special Command at Rena.’

It also wished Ingrid Alexandra, granddaughter of the ruling King Harald V and daughter of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, a Happy 19th Birthday. 

It is not known how the princess spent her birthday – but it was likely a far more low-key affair compared to last year, when a dazzling line-up of glamorous royals flocked to Oslo for a lavish dinner in her honour, which was followed by a gala at the palace.

Ingrid Alexandra will become Norway’s first female monarch in more than 600 years after her father Crown Prince Haakon, 48, secured her place in the line of succession by changing the law to allow first-born daughters to ascend the throne over their younger male siblings.

In the next few years, she will increase her public profile and take on more responsibilities on behalf of the royal family but will continue to focus on her education, the palace said in a statement on her 18th birthday.

Ingrid has a younger brother, Prince Sverre Magnus and an older half-brother on her mother’s side, Marius Borg Høiby.

The previous Norwegian queen was Queen Margaret, who reigned over Norway, Denmark and Sweden from the late 1380s until her death in 1412.

Born in 2004 in Oslo, Princess Ingrid Alexandra attended the same local primary school as her half-brother, Mette-Marit’s son from a previous relationship.

Her parents chose the school because they wanted her to have as ordinary a childhood as possible.

Ingrid Alexandra is an avid skier, boxer and surfer. She won a gold medal in the Norwegian surfing championship for juniors in October 2020.

Ingrid Alexandra has taken part in a handful of public engagements, including opening a public sculpture park in her name in 2016.
