To dagbladet in an article that speculates that Princess Ingrid Alexandra will get Princess Ragnhilds jewels for her 18th birthday the Guri Varpe at the palace says;
- It is a more than hundred-year-old tradition that members of the royal family in their lifetime have been allowed to have the sole use of certain objects / jewelry that belong to His Majesty the King. When the person has passed away, this is returned to His Majesty the King. This happened at the passing of Queen Maud, Crown Princess Märtha and Princess Ragnhild, Mrs. Lorentzen, the head of communications at the Royal Court, Guri Varpe, informs Dagbladet.
There is no further confirmation that Ingrid will have theese jewels, only speculation. It is also said that it is the jewels after Queen Maud that is returned, i.e not those that comes from Princess Ingeborg, which is what Princess Astrid also have said before. The court will not answer if it has been decided that the Princess should inherit a tiara for her 18th birthday. Other speculate a new tiara will be bought or made by a norwegian jewellery designer.
One could wish that the Norwegian royal court would be as open about the jewels as the swedish and danish couterparts and do an exhibition, a book or a TV program, especially whilst Princess Astrid is still alive, who is probably the one who knows the most, but it seems very difficult for them to share anything relating to the jewels. In Denmark there will be a whole exhbition about Magrethes private jewels as soon as covid allows.
