Gratulerer med dagen, Kronprins Haakon!

Today is Crown Prince Haakon's 37th birthday! Join me and the rest of Sons of Norway in saying a heartfelt gratulerer med dagen!

A couple points of interest about this Norwegian Royal:

  • On birth he was named Prince Haakon Magnus but it was stressed in the announcement that he would go by the name Haakon.

  • He became Crown Prince Haakon when his father ascended to the crown as Harald V in 1991.

  • If Crown Prince Haakon becomes king as expected, he will be known as Haakon VIII of Norway.
