In honour of Princess Ingrid Alexandra's seventh birthday on January 21, royal fans have been given the chance of a glimpse into the family's recent private trip to India.
And if the intimate family snaps are anything to go by, no-one enjoyed it more than the birthday girl herself.
The future queen's love of animals is revealed in some of the pictures, in which she can be seeing petting a kitten and hugging a friendly dolphin.
Ingrid visited India with her parents Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon in November.
The family – including Prince Sverre Magnus and Marius, Mette-Marit's son from a previous relationship – spent the winter months travelling during a trip designed to let the children experience other cultures.
