Princess Ingrid Alexandra confirms herself Saturday that she received a Budnad from the royal couple. The National costume comes from East Telemark, where the Queen’s National Costume comes from.
The Princess will wear this during her confirmation and is a reconstructed women’s costume from East Telemark as it was designed in the period 1800-1850. The princess herself has chosen sub-elements for the bunad, informs Castle.
Queen Sonja has also taken an active part in the costume project with her 15-year-old granddaughter. She herself has costume from East Telemark.
The costumes from Eastern Telemark are available in several variants, including a variant with embroidery called the princess pattern.
On May 17 this year, the princess wore a Bunad from Vest-Agder, Crown Princess Mette-Marit’s home county.
