Article from NRK

I've translated an article from NRK:
The coronation party has started
The King, the Queen and the Crown Princely couple are now participating in the comemorative service in Nidarosdome cathedral.
The royal family walked from Stiftsgården (my comment: their residence in Trondheim) to the Nidarosdomen cathedral. On their way they stopped to watch performances from six scenes in the Munkegata street. This was displays from “the cultural schoolbag”. Andrea Eggen (18 y.o) and Tommy Lohold (17 y.o) gave flowers to the royals by the first stage.
Large parts of the official Norway was present in the Nidarosdomen cathedral, fronted by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, Parliamentary President Torbjørn Jagland and supreme court judge (høyesterettsjustitiarius) Tore Schei.
It is bishop Finn Wagle and cathedral minister (domprost) Kunt Andersen which will lead the service which is aired live at NRK1 and is shown on big screen on the Vestfrontplassen and the Market in Trondheim.

The National Regalias
After the comemorative service there will be an official opening of the new visitors centre of Nidarosdomen cathedral and the new permanent exhibition of the National regalias in Erkebispegården (the Archbishops place). At 12.40 Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg opens the new exhibition and then King Harald gives a speach in connection to the centenniary. This ceremony will take place in Borggården and is open to the public.
And while the royals look at the national regalias and joins the governments lunch in Øysteinssalen (Øysteins hall) in Erkebispegården, it will be served coronation cake and coffee to the public in Borggården.

Dinner
At 20.00 tonight it is a comemorative dinner for 105 guests at Stiftsgården. The menu is secret untill people are seated.
The seven youngest members of the royal family will not be present at the dinner. So will neither Princess Ragnhilds youngest daughter Ragnhild and the oldest grand child Olav Alexander which both cancelled.
But the other nine of King Haakon and Queen Mauds ten great grand children and finve of their 13 great great grand children will be present with the three grand children Ragnhild, Astrid and Harald.
Otherwise there will be a number of official guests fronted by the Parliamentary President and the Prime Minister. Both Torbjørn Jagland and Jens Stoltenberg are both invited with spouses, most of the others come alone.
13 members of government are on the guest list, so is the Stortingets presidency and presidents and vise presidents from Odelsting, Lagting and from the Sami Parliament.
Also the country’s county majors were invited, and the church, the military and the supreme court is represented alongside representatives from Trondheim municipality and Sør-Trøndelag county.

Thanks,

I think coronations were abolished because of many different reasons. One may be the religious connection, that the monarch was crowned by a church as the king of the realm, by god's will and help, which became an old fashioned idea here in Scandinavia as our countries have become more secularized. Another that our the roles of the monarch changed - from being a ruling king, to becoming a constitutional monarch with mainly ceremonial roles and only symbolic powers. The ceremonies were seen as a part of the old days, a very stiff and pompous ceremony, that in the old days - marked royals as superiors to their people, the commoners.

And I agree with you Linda. I think that today, when the Royal Families are becoming more and more modern and similar to their people (marrying commoners, shopping like normal people, moving around in cities with their subjects etc) - would the coronations be modernised and the order of service changed to fit our day and age, it could help to improve the monarchies symbolic role in the nation - and help keep that "untouchable sphere" that the royals need to have in some way in order not to become too normal. At least that's how I think and feel. :)

Yesterday evening, Haakon, Mette-Marit and Sverre Magnus went for a walk in the natural areas outside Trondehim, they was accompanied by 3 body guards. they spent an hour in the publice Elgsethcabin, they did not order food but had a couple of bottles of water and talked to the guests and the staff, most of the time they spent outside in the sun, but Mette-Marit gave Sverre Magnus food inside in a private room. They had not anounces that they were comming. They could not find parking lcose by so they had walked with Sverre Magnus in the tram, they said to the staff several people had stopped to talk to them. They signed the guest book before they left

Thanks everybody for pictures.

Mett Was stylish,and Martha stunning as usual,but I don't like her new hair colour,she's better with darker hair,it flatters more her blue eyes.

The dinner tonight is a black tie dinner, Sonja wears the red dress she has worn many times like Felipes prewedding dinner, Märtha wears a new lace cream dress with pearls in the back of her hair and Mette-Marit also has a new dress, a one strap navy (I think) and white dress.
