Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet
The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony took place today in Oslo where the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet were awarded this year’s prize for their “decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy” following the 2011 Jasmine Revolution.
The Quartet is a collaboration of four organisations within Tunisian society – the Tunisian General Labour Union, the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts, the Tunisian Human Rights League and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers.
King Harald V granted the laureates an audience at the Royal Palace ahead of the official ceremony at the City Hall, both of which were attended by Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
For the prize ceremony, the Crown Princess kept her look simple in a recycled white Alexander McQueen coat dress paired with black accessories, leaving Queen Sonja to bring the pizzaz in a teal skirt suit with matching pillbox hat and silk scarf.
In the evening, the Royal Family were present at the traditional banquet that was held at the Gand Hotel.Filed under Norway
