It's maybe only me but in this picture Haakon resembles to his great grandfather, Haakon VII.

Thanks eya, marian & iceflower!

Well, Norway's beloved, amazing, etc, etc, etc, etc, King was as funny as heck (as he always is during this particular speech) - and said: ''Årets middag er faktisk historisk: Aldri før har vi på samme tid hatt kvinner til å bekle stillingene til både Stortingspresident, Høyesterettsjustitiarius og Statsminister. Tidene forandrer seg. Til det bedre, vil mange med rette hevde. Jeg føler meg i hvert fall på rett sted. Når jeg i tillegg er omkranset av både Dronningen og Kronprinsessen, befinner jeg meg så å si midt i gullrekka.''
Translated to: ''This year's dinner is actually historic: Never before, at the same time, have we had women to cover the positions of both President of the Storting, Chief Justice and Prime Minister. Times are changing. For the better, many will rightly claim. At least, I feel myself at the right place. When I in addition is surrounded by both the Queen and the Crown Princess, I find myself, so to speak, in the middle of a row of gold.'' (Everyone was laughing, including the Crown Princess.)

He also took up a range of issues, such as: Metoo, the Golden Wedding Anniversary and warm meetings with the people.

Read the speech here: Stortingsmiddagen 2018: Kongens tale - kongehuset.no

NRK article: King Harald: - Metoo calls for reflection: Kong Harald: – Metoo maner til ettertanke.

Still some issues with the google translations, so use your owns!

--------------------

And then to our brave, beautiful, etc, etc, etc, etc, Crown Princess, who was in GREAT spirit, laughing all the time, especially when her father-in-law said something funny or when the President of the Storing mentioned all the political scandals this year (which one can read about in this thread: Prime Ministers, and the constitutional role of the Norwegian Monarch).

Thanks! - And at 00:10 in the first video in the article below, you can see that former Prime Minister, Kjell Magne Bondevik (from the Christian Democratic Party), greeted the Crown Princess with both his hands and said somethings to her:

As one also can see, guardsmen from The King's Guard stood along the procession-route inside the Royal Palace, first time we've seen that under a Stortingsdinner.
Also the first time the media was allowed to film the receiving-line in Speilsalen (the Music Hall), because we are usually seeing the guests walking through the rooms I mentioned in post 118.

Reporter? Well, I hope that was meant as a complement.

But funniness aside: You're very welcome!

Added some more information, so I reposted it.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit is probably exhausted by the literature tour in Germany. (Didn't she have to cancel some events during that tour, too?)


And the Queen is probably still sick. I read somewhere that she had to cancel an event in Kristiansand last week because of an infection of the upper respiratory passages.

The king will be glad that he can count on his sister to support him as long as you possibly can on moments like these.
