Princess Ingrid of Norway has officially embarked on her own journey.
The 19-year-old progeny of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit has vacated the familial royal abode, Skaugum, and now resides in an apartment in Oslo, as per reports from Se og Hør.
Per the periodical, Ingrid, who stands as the second in succession to the Norwegian throne after her paternal figure, has elected to dwell in the trendy enclave of Grünerløkka.
Located proximately to the city center, Grünerløkka is hailed as one of Oslo's most fashionable vicinities, with Vogue affirming, “Put simply, Grünerløkka is your desired destination during your next sojourn to Norway.”
This district is renowned for its urban artwork, chic drinking establishments, nightlife venues, bohemian bistros, live melodic sanctuaries, and shops peddling vintage garments. Furthermore, it offers picturesque footpaths tracing the course of the Akerselva River.
Ingrid recently completed her matriculation at Elvebakken Upper Secondary School in Oslo in April. At present, she undertakes duties as an educational aide and ecological steward at her former educational institution, Uranienborg School, also located in the capital. Ingrid spent a year there to fulfill her lower secondary education requirements.
Come January 2024, she will embark on her inaugural year of military tutelage at the Engineer Battalion within Brigade Nord, thus following in the footsteps of her progenitor.
While Ingrid has taken flight from the familial nest, her younger sibling, Prince Sverre Magnus, aged 17, continues to inhabit the ancestral domicile in Asker. He remains entrenched in the terminal phase of his secondary education at Elvebakken Upper Secondary School in Oslo.
Over the weekend, the Norwegian royal cohort was in full attendance at the 18th birthday celebration of Prince Christian of Denmark in Copenhagen. Enthusiasts of the royalty were elated to witness Crown Princess Mette-Marit, who had recuperated from a period of indisposition, radiating in an ice-blue satin attire.
Ingrid, similarly resplendent, donned a one-shoulder pleated gown in a shade mirroring her mother's ensemble. She bedecked herself with the Boucheron pearl circle tiara and bore the Order of the Elephant, a prestigious Danish chivalric order and Denmark's highest accolade, for the first time.
