Crown Princess Victoria attends Goddaughter's Confirmation
It was an international royal affair for Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s confirmation, today in Oslo, Norway and all of her godparents were in attendance to mark the occasion.
Princess Ingrid Alexandra is expected to be the second female monarch Norway with the first being Queen Margaret from 1363-1380. Knowing this, the Crown Prince Couple selected a strong “lineup” of godparents who would be able to help offer aide, support, guidance, and support to the Princess when that day arrived. Those godparents included her grandfather (King Harald V), her aunt (Princess Märtha Louise), her grandmother (Marit Tjessem) Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, King Felipe of Spain, and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.
Crown Princess Victoria has always maintained a strong relationship with all of her godchildren, but her bond with the Norwegian royals runs deeper than just her godparent responsibilities. Crown Princess Victoria is actually Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s 5th cousin AND her 4th cousin once removed. The families are intertwined and married in multiple places, thus it make sense that Crown Princess Victoria would have been selected for this role as godmother. The two family’s have been seen on skiing holidays and attending birthday parties (both officially and unofficially) many times over the years- so the bond between the family is strong.
Princess Ingrid Alexandra is being confirmed at the Palace Chapel at the Royal Palace in Oslo. She received her confirmation instruction from Asker Church congregation, located near her family’s home of Skaugum. For her confirmation she wore a traditional handmaid outfit, Bunad, an extremely special and personal gift from her grandparents. To see what makes it so special, check out NRK’s documentary.
