The royal couple and the children are enjoying this year as Norwegian summer happiness at country house at Dvergsøya outside Kristiansand.
Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit follow the tradition and spend the summer on the sheltered island with their children Ingrid Alexandra, Sverre Magnus and Marius. Here they charges the batteries before this autumn's official programs and schooling.
Sunday there will probably be a small party on the occasion of Crown Prince Haakon's 41 th birthday, but the Castle says that the celebration takes place in the private sector.
Thursday this week canceled the Crown Prince and Princess the holliday for a short visit to the Red Cross' summer camp for disadvantaged kids outside Kristiansand.
