Birthday of Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway Date in the current year: January 21, 2016

Birthday of Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway Birthdays of the members of the Norwegian Royal House are official flag flying days in Norway, i.e. the days when all states agencies and branches of government are obliged to fly the national flag. The birthday of Princess Ingrid Alexandra is one of these days.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra is the elder child of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. She was born on January 21, 2004. As of 2014, the Princess attends the private English-language Oslo International School.

Ingrid Alexandra has a younger brother, Prince Sverre Magnus. She also has an older maternal half-brother, Marius Borg Høiby, born in 1997 from her mother's previous relationship. As he has no right to inherit the throne, Ingrid Alexandra is the second in line of succession after her father.

Before 1990, heirs to the Norwegian throne were ranked according male-preference cognatic primogeniture. If this rule still existed, the Princess' status would be affected by her younger brother's birth. But in 1990, absolute primogeniture was introduced in Norway.

Thus, Ingrid Alexandra is expected to become the first female monarch in Norway since Queen Margaret I of Denmark who became Queen of Norway in 1387 by marrying King Haakon VI of Norway.
