The court has published the gift list for the first half of 2022, and we learn some of the gifts. Im sure she was delighted witht he framed photo she got from Victoria and Daniel Jumping and white porcelaine bowl with a lid from Guillame and Stephanie, what every teenager needs;-)

It seems Frederik left giftshopping to his wife and he did not only bring an old elephant...

King and Queen of Spain - Painting by Javier Abella
King and Queen og Netherlands: A gold ring with garnets; January Birthstone Multi Ring from anna + nina
Cp couple of Denmark - Earrings with brilliants from Dulong fine jewellery
CP couple from Sweden - Big framed photo
Heridary couple from Luxembourg - White porcelaine bowl with a lid.
CP of Belgium  - Percossi papi earrings


She got the Oslo "bunad" as well as a Numedals bunad (from the municipality where their winter cabine is Nore and Uvdal)
she also got lots of lifelong memberships and invitations to different events which it seems so far she has not accepted

TBH I love the gifts which are given to such events. So symbolic and traditional, mostly connected to the history and culture of the country.   I will never forget the nice presents Vic and Dan received at their lysning.
Sad enough we don't know more about the presents here.

The seven last pages of the link lists all the gifts she got from the official part of Norway. Im actaully supprised they listed the royal gifts as they say they dont list gifts from "family and friends", but I guess they consider them official. The gift list was made pubic after several articles relating to Mette-Marit getting purses and discounts from fashionhouses, in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s they accepted many expensive gifts like a horse, sailboat and cars, they no longer accept any such gifts and discounts from comercial interests, and everything is published.

King Harald about the birthday in The year with the royal family:


King Harald does not need time to reflect. He is not in the habit of ranking the experiences during a year, but has no doubts when he looks back on the year that is now almost over. It was a highlight.-

What was it like for a grandfather to see an heir to the throne come out the way she did?- It was no surprise to me that she managed that way. Because she is impressive. Really. King Harald nods emphatically. - What is it about her that impresses the king? - She is very caring, and she takes the serious things seriously.

Historic moment
The ministers stood and waited behind their chairs around the long table in the Council Chamber at the Palace. The large chandelier with the inscription "By law shall the land be built" lit up. Everything was ready for the weekly, important meeting. Council of State, where new laws are passed and signed, is held at the Palace every Friday at 11 a.m. Normally it follows a fixed pattern. But on 21 January this year, an exception was made. When the tall, white doors to the Council Chamber opened that Friday , a new chapter in the history of the kingdom was written.

- She was very nervous, I think. I had the feeling of it. But there was nothing to be nervous about. It's always a bit exciting the first time. But she will quickly get used to it when the time comes, says King Harald.

He - the experienced monarch who has led the cabinet countless times since he became King of Norway in 1991. She - the granddaughter, who will one day become Norway's queen. For the first time in the cabinet on her 18th birthday. For now just to learn and observe. - It was a proper cabinet, but for her it was a trial cabinet. Because she doesn't really have a seat in the cabinet until I'm gone, says King Harald.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra put her hand to her heart. Greeted "Good day, Minister of State" to the members of the government. Fifth generation in the Norwegian royal house in the Council of Ministers. She took a seat at the end of the table, on King Harald's left. On his right sat Crown Prince Haakon. For the first time the three were together in the Cabinet. Behind them stood the busts of the first and second generations, King Haakon and King Olav

According to the Constitution, only the closest heir to the throne can take a seat in the cabinet together with the king. The princess, second in the line of succession, therefore had an observing role on her official day.

The picture was historic. - The long lines show that. It is the continuity of the whole thing, of the duty that comes to the fore, says King Harald. He felt the strength in the fact that family should follow the course of family. - Does it matter to the king that there are now two who can take over? - Yes, It certainly means a lot to me. It does, he replies matter-of-factly. - Also two, if I may say so, which are not entirely objective, quite good specimens too, then. It is very nice to see.

IA clearly is a nice girl and she seems to be well trained. I think the King can be proud and shouldn't be afraid of the future (I mean concerning his heirs).

Such typical Norwegian understatement, the King's calling Haakon and Ingrid Alexandra ``quite good specimens.'' That really made me laugh. Sounds like the King is well away of the Janteloven. I bet his fellow Norwegians appreciated that.
