Highlights: Proud Mette-Marit beams in new birthday photos of Prince Sverre Magnus. For almost 100 years, the Norwegian royals have received a car from the Royal Norwegian Automobile Club for their 18th birthday. In 2015, a new donation rule put an end to this tradition. The birthday child, on the other hand, had to do without another traditional gift. However, his big sister Princess Ingrid Alexandra also did not get a wheeled vehicle when she came of age, as Se og Hør reports.

On the occasion of Prince Sverre Magnus' 18th birthday, almost the entire Norwegian royal family was photographed in traditional costume. Not the only gift for Mette-Marit's youngest son.

Oslo – Norway's royals have every reason to celebrate. On the one hand, Crown Prince Haakon (50) and Crown Princess Mette-Marit (50) got engaged exactly 23 years ago on December 1, 2000, and on the other hand, their son Prince Sverre Magnus celebrated his 3th birthday on December 18. To mark the occasion, King Harald V (86) and Queen Sonja (86) hosted an official lunch at the Royal Palace, where the Queen gave a touching speech for her grandson.

These are the gifts Prince Sverre Magnus received for his 18th birthday: surfboard, skis and Bunat instead of car

"Magnus, I want to say something important to you and the other 18-year-olds in our country today: It's good enough to be who you are. The most important thing is to be sure of yourself and listen to your own voice. The ability to put yourself in other people's shoes and be a good friend is much more important than being 'good' at things," Queen Sonja addressed Prince Sverre Magnus, according to the Norwegian royal family. For his 18th birthday, he also received a bunat, a Norwegian national costume, from the royal couple.

The birthday child, on the other hand, had to do without another traditional gift. For almost 100 years, the Norwegian royals have received a car from the Royal Norwegian Automobile Club for their 18th birthday. In 2015, a new donation rule put an end to this tradition. Sverre Magnus' big sister Princess Ingrid Alexandra (19) also did not get a wheeled vehicle when she came of age, as Se og Hør reports. However, she had to answer interview questions – reason enough for Ingrid Alexandra to poke holes in her little brother in an Instagram video.

Finally of age: Prince Sverre Magnus reveals what he really wants to do soon

Royal fans learn that Prince Sverre is Magnus' favorite movie "The Condemned" with Tim Robbins (65) and Morgan Freeman (86) and his favorite series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine". In addition, Sverre Magnus, a sports enthusiast, reveals to his sister that he really wants to go skydiving. "I'm going to do that with a good friend soon. I just have to do it," explains the birthday boy. What will his parents say?

Just recently, it was revealed in a TV documentary which event caused Mette-Marit to fall into total panic. A parachute jump by her youngest son is guaranteed to raise the pulse of the crown princess. Until then, Prince Sverre Magnus can get the adrenaline rush he needs by skiing and surfing. The palace released pictures showing the newly minted 18-year-old's gifts, including a new surfboard and new skis. Sources used:seoghoer.dk, kongehuset.no, Instagram
