Crown Prince Haakon celebrated his birthday at Mågerø with the family

On Friday, large parts of the Norwegian Royal Family were gathered to celebrate Crown Prince Haakon who was 45-years-old. They celebrated the big day at the Royal Family’s country house at Mågerø in Tjøme, where the whole family where gathered for a private birthday celebration.

Even though it was a half-jubilee, the celebration was marked quietly. Despite the fact that one day he will take over the throne and fill the shoes of his father, King Harald, usually royal birthdays in Norway are celebrated the same way as for the most Norwegians.

Early on the birthday, the Crown Princess shared a greeting to her husband. “Hurray for the world’s finest Haakon!”, she wrote to her 161,000 followers on Instagram. Later in the evening, a series of new photographs of the Royal Family were published on the occasion of the Crown Prince’s birthday.

Joining the celebration was also King Harald and Queen Sonja, who smiled at the camera together with their granddaughter Princess Ingrid Alexandra, and other grandchildren Prince Sverre Magnus and Maud Angelica Behn, the birthday child, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Märtha Louise.

Emma Tallulah and Leah Isadora, Märtha Louise’s two other children, were not to see during the celebration, as they are probably on holiday with their father, Ari Behn. Mette-Marit’s son Marius Borg Høiby apparently did not attend the festivities either. On the other hand, the Crown Prince Family’s dog, Muffins Kråkebolle, participated in the party, which lay nicely in the picture with the rest of her family.

The royal couple’s private summer residence, Mågerø, is situated on at the oceanside at Tjøme south of Tønsberg. The facility consists of several buildings. With a nice plan according to modern principles, build in wood and natural stone, the houses lay in a hilly terrain. A blend of window like image holes in the wall and sizeable open glass surfaces bring the view and nature into the building in different ways.
