This summer, Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit both celebrate their 40th birthdays. A series of portraits has been taken to commemorate the occasion.
The pictures were taken by Photographer Lise Åserud (NTB Scanpix) in June, at the Crown Prince and Crown Princess' home, Skaugum Estate in Asker.

“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
