Re: Norwegian titles
Thanks Dag, very helpful.
Is it correct that in Norway the heir to the Crown Prince/Princess is known as the Hereditary Prince/Princess. I seem to recall that the current Crown Prince was referred to as Hereditary Prince whilst his father was Crown Prince, and in his speech at her confirmation the King referred to Princess Ingrid Alexandra as Norway’s first hereditary princess. So is it correct to refer to the Crown Prince’s daughter as HRH Hereditary Princess Ingrid Alexandra?
No, Princess Ingrid Alexandra's title is just "Princess". Same with the then Prince Harald and Prince Haakon. The king's reference was just descriptive.
