The government’s graduation gift to Princess Ingrid Alexandra is to rename a nature reserve at Bygdøy. The area will be called Prinsesseåsen naturreservat (Princess Hill Nature Reserve).

On the occasion of the princess’s confirmation this weekend, the government has decided to rename Hengsåsen nature reserve. In addition, she is given a work of art painted by Norwegian artist Tyra Tingleff.

I would like to congratulate Princess Ingrid Alexandra on her confirmation. Confirmation is an anniversary in the lives of young people, and I wish the princess a great day and good luck with the future, says Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H).

The government wanted a nature reserve to be given a name related to the princess, and the choice fell on Hengsåsen. The area is adjacent to Dronningberget and Kongeskogen on Bygdøy, and it is also part of Bygdøy Kongsgård.

The name change was addressed in the cabinet on Friday.
