State funeral of Gunnar Sønsteby (1918-2012)

State funeral of Gunnar Sønsteby today, with most of the royal family in attendance. The King, Princess Astrid and her husband Johan Martin Ferner, Princess Martha and her husband Ari Behn is all in attendence. The husband of Princess Ragnhild, Erling Sven Lorentzen is also there with one daughter. The Crown Prince and Crown Princess, with their two youngest children are on an official county trip in Møre and Romsdal and is therefore not in attendance. Why the Queen is not there I do not know.



Gunnar Sønsteby was a Norwegian resistance fighter during the world war two,and the German occupation of Norway. He spent a lot of his time after the war meeting young people and giving speeches about the war and the resistence fight. He had a close relationship with the royal family; past and present, and was for a time part of the royal guard after the war.

It's great to see so many family members attending.

Fashion-wise: oh dear... everyone seemed to have a fashion-black-out...

thank you for the information Fairy tale

I would have thought Mette-Marit might be there too. Karin Stoltenberg seems to have been a great activist for gender equality.

Yes, and I thought that she is a very good and close friend (also Haakon) with the Prime Minister. ...

As posted in the CP Mette-Marit thread (on phone, can't link), she has the flu, since around the 7th. Since flu lasts about three weeks, she is still sick.
