The Norwegian Royal Court has released two new photos to mark Prince Sverre Magnus 13th birthday on 3 December 2018.
He was born at the Rikshospitalet in Oslo in 2005, the second child of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
Prince Sverre Magnus is currently third in the line of succession to the throne, after his father and older sister Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Norway changed the order of succession in 1990 to allow daughters to take precedence over their younger brothers.
However, as a descendant of King Edward VII, through his daughter Maud, he is also in the line of succession of the British Royal Family. He precedes his sister in Britain before they male-preference cognac primogeniture changed in 2011.
Prince Sverre Magnus was christened in the Palace Chapel by Bishop Ole Kristian Kvarme, with his grandmother Queen Sonja, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, Princess Rosario of Bulgaria, his maternal uncle Espen Høiby, and his parents’ friends, Bjorn Stensland and Marianne Gjellestad, were chosen as godparents.
On 18 August 2011, Prince Sverre Magnus began 1st Grade at a local state school, Jansløkka Barneskole (primary school), attended by his sister and his older half-brother, Marius Borg Høiby.
In 2014, Prince Sverre Magnus began attending the private Montessori School in Oslo.
He is said to be a keen drummer.
Prince Sverre Magnus was seen doing the dab during an appearance on the Balcony at the Royal Palace during his grandparents’ 80th birthday celebrations in May 2017.
