Princess Ingrid Alexandra marks one dream off bucket list

Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway has marked one dream off her bucket list.

The future Queen of Norway shared in her 18th birthday interview in January 2022 that she wanted to parachute out of a plane, and now that dream has become a reality.

The Norwegian Royal Court released a photo of Ingrid Alexandra after completing a parachute jump on their Instagram account to mark the Princess’s 19th birthday on 21 January.

The Royal Court said: “At the top of her bucket list is to jump with a parachute, said Princess Ingrid Alexandra when she turned 18. This summer, she got to try herself from a height of 20,000 feet during a so-called HAHO jump (High Altitude, High Opening) together with the Norwegian Armed Forces’ special command at Rena.”

Princess Ingrid Alexandra took part in the parachute jump in the summer of 2022 with the Norwegian Armed Forces, which may have been why her mother, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, finally agreed to allow her to mark that special item off her bucket list.

The Princess revealed in her 18th birthday interview that she wanted to parachute jump but hadn’t gotten permission from her mum.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra will one day be Norway’s second Queen regnant after Queen Margaret in the 15th century, who reigned over Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
