Norwegian Royal Court announces plans for Prince Sverre Magnus’s 18th birthday

The Norwegian Royal Court has announced plans for Prince Sverre Magnus’s 18th birthday.

The Prince, third in line to the Norwegian throne, will turn 18 on 3 December.

As he is not the direct heir, celebrations for him will be subdued in comparison to that of his older sister, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, who will one day be Queen of Norway.

Sverre Magnus’s grandparents, King Harald and Queen Sonja, will host a lunch at the Royal Palace on 1 December. The Norwegian Royal Family will be joined by Norwegian authorities, youth organisations and sponsors.

Prince Sverre Magnus is the youngest child of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. He has two older siblings: Marius Borg Høiby (half-brother through his mother) and Princess Ingrid Alexandra.

The Prince was christened in March 2006 with Queen Sonja, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, Princess Rosario of Bulgaria, Espen Høiby (maternal uncle), Bjørn Steinsland and Marianne Gjellestad (both friends of his parents).

A guest list has not been revealed for the luncheon.
