Only a few would go this way in their position. But life is not all made up of glamor. It is said that she consciously chose a job that many of her age have as a part-time job.

Ingrid Alexandra should have as much to do with her peers as possible. “In this way she will understand her people much better when she becomes queen one day,” Haakon and Mette-Marit are quoted as saying.
