Princess Ingrid Alexandra was able to look forward to valuable gifts
Princess Ingrid Alexandra celebrated her 18th birthday on January 21, 2022 and received rich gifts! The princess received a surfboard, modern art, a sculpture, books and jewelry from government and military officials on her special day. In addition, at 12 noon, the military fired 21 shots from all salute stations in the country.
And the list goes on: on the occasion of her birthday, a research ship was named after Princess Ingrid Alexandra. The ship, based in Tromso, will explore the Norwegian coast and teach students, reports Fiskeribladet. The ship is currently being built in the Netherlands and is scheduled for delivery in Bergen in December 2022. It will then go into operation in 2023. It is not yet clear whether Ingrid Alexandra will take over the naming of the ship.
However, the princess had to do without a tradition: unlike her father and grandfather, she was not given a car. “Due to the rules of the royal family for gifts, the KNA will not give Princess Ingrid Alexandra a car,” a spokesman for the “Kongelig Norsk Automobilklub” (KNA) told the press agency “NTB”. This brings an almost 100-year tradition to an end.
