Oh thank you, Your Majesty, for these four beautiful photos, and the Queen looks so elegant as well as the King.

article and photos about the empty and dark balcony in the evening where usually the Nobel Peace Prize winner stands. There was a large photo of Liu Xiaobo on the hotel wall and still many people with torches.

A video and article about the huge contrast of this year and last year's Nobel Peace Prize.

Cool

It was very unfortunate that the Crown Prince couple chose to have a vacation and so miss the Nobel Ceremony. I mean no disrespect to any of the past Peace Prize winners, this ceremony was so meaningful because the recipient is in a tiny prison cell and his wife is on house arrest for promoting human rights and fundamental rights. Haakon and Mette-Marit are such strong supports of freedoms and human rights that it would seem that they would find it crucial to attend and show support. The King and Queen were in attendance and provided a very dignified and regal presence as they always have.
I have to repeat I don't mean any disrespect of past Nobel Peace Prize winners or criticism of the Crown Prince Couple. My intent was not to start any political discussion either.

I agree. I would also have liked to have seen them there.
