"Happy 19th birthday, Princess Ingrid Alexandra!" The Instagram caption read. "At the top of the bucket list is skydiving, Princess Ingrid Alexandra said when she turned 18. This summer, she got to try herself from a height of 20,000 feet during a so-called HAHO jump (High Altitude, High Opening) together with the Defense Special Command at Rena."

The young royal will one day become Norway's second female monarch, after the 15th-century Queen Margaret.

She joins a list of future female heirs, including Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle of Sweden, Princess Leonor of Spain and Princess Catharina-Amalia of The Netherlands.

On her 18th birthday last year, Princess Ingrid Alexandra made her dazzling tiara debut in official portraits to mark the milestone occasion.

The glittering diamond and pearl tiara, which was a gift from her great-aunt Princess Ragnhild's family, has been passed down from Princess Ingeborg of Sweden, who was the grandmother of the King of Norway and the great-great-grandmother of Princess Ingrid Alexandra.

The statement headpiece has also previously been used by Princess Märtha of Sweden (Crown Princess of Norway), Princess Margaretha of Denmark and of course, Princess Ragnhild of Norway.
