On the occasion of Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s 6th birthday, the Norwegian Court has released a series of pictures of the princess.
Ingrid Alexandra had her first big official duty last summer, when she assisted her mother in an environmental duty in front of the palace. Later, she was the co-star of King Harald in a video aimed for children, as they together opened the children’s webpages on the royal court’s home page.
In November, she assisted in another royal duty at the National Football Championships for Men, when she handed out trophies to the winning team, Aalesund.
Ingrid Alexandra is currently attending nursery school/kindergarten, and will start school officially in August, when she enters first grade. She will presumably forego the royal tradition of going to school in Oslo, given the commute, and rather follow in the footsteps of her half brother, Marius, who went to the local elementary school.

In the presence of King Abdullah II and other members of the Jordanian royal family, Prince Rashid married Zeina Shaban during a small ceremony in Amman.
The 30 year-old Prince is a cousin of the King, and the son of Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath.
The bride meanwhile is a 27 year-old table tennis player from Jordan. It is not known just how the couple met.
Rashid’s father, Hassan, was Crown Prince of Jordan for decades during the reign of his brother, the late King Hussein. Upon his deathbed however, the King changed the succession from his brother to his son, Abdullah.
Had King Hussein not made those changes, there would be a King Hassan of Jordan now, and Prince Rashid would be the heir to the throne.
