Prince Sverre Magnus of Norway (born 3 December 2005) is the younger child of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit and third in line to succeed his grandfather King Harald V, after his father and elder sister Princess Ingrid Alexandra.

Birth and education[edit]

Prince Sverre Magnus was born on 3 December 2005 at The National Hospital the Oslo University Hospital in Oslo,[1] where his sister Princess Ingrid Alexandra had been born a year earlier.[2] He was baptised by Bishop Ole Christian Kvarme at the chapel of the Royal Palace in Oslo on 4 March 2006.[3]

Beginning 18 August 2011, Sverre Magnus attended Jansløkka elementary school, a local state school attended by his sister and half-brother.[1] On 17 June 2014, the Norwegian Royal Family notified the public that from the start of the 2014-2015 school year, Sverre Magnus would transfer to Oslo's private Montessori school. His sister, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, was to transfer to the also private English-language Oslo International School.[4]

Constitutional status[edit]

Sverre Magnus is third in the line of succession to the Norwegian throne following his sister.[1][5][6] He is a member of the Royal Family but not of the Royal House, which consists only of his grandparents, parents and sister.[7] As descendants of the British King Edward VII's daughter Maud, members of the Norwegian royal family are also in the line of succession to the British throne;[8][9] Sverre Magnus precedes his sister in the British line due to male-preference cognatic primogeniture for those born before 2011.[10]
