"Julefotografering" at the Royal Palace

On Monday, December 19th, the Royal Family came together for a special occasion: to take some family Christmas photos.

The photos were taken in the Red Lounge, where HM Queen Sonja read a fairytale to Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Sverre Magnus. The little prince had some trouble focusing as the Queen read, turning to play with the ornaments on a nearby Christmas tree, fidgeting and holding back yawns. The Princess, on the other hand, listened intently, leaning her chin on the Queen’s shoulder as she read.

The photos and a video of the Queen reading to the children was posted online the very same day.
