The heir to the throne who has now come of age is the country’s foremost representative of an overly broad exemption regime in written side cases.
King Haakon was also the king of the Communists, but they have not exactly put themselves in the saddle for Ingrid Alexandra to be the queen of New Norwegian users.
The Crown Prince and Crown Princess took their daughter out of the public primary school and into a private international school – where all teaching takes place in English, because the then ten-year-old Ingrid Alexandra needed a “basic level for thinking, speaking and writing in English.”
“Parents complain that she receives need-based education in Nynorsk”, Slottet wrote its communications manager to VG. This could be confirmed by mother. The parents had “implemented several measures” for Ingrid Alexandra to learn Nynorsk – such as that she read Halldis Moren Vesaas’ poems to her best friend and her 25th birthday.
I have no doubt that the royal family wants Nynorsk well, but I would like to see it.
Norwegians are girls who love girls, guys who love guys, and girls and guys who love each other. Norwegians believe in God, Allah, the Almighty and Nothing. And Norwegians write both Nynorsk and Bokmål.
The castle can do a lot for New Norwegian if the castle wants. They can use Nynorsk in official texts, speeches and outward communication, for example.
The jubilant may not have received training throughout the Norwegian language, but she can show that she understands Norway – and make sure to become a queen for the whole country.
