Princess Astrid is honoured by The Norwegian Women's Sanitation Association - Norway Today
Quote:
Princess Astrid of Norway, Mrs Ferner, was awarded the Norwegian Women’s Sanitation Association’s highest honour for her effort and work for the organization over the past 63 years.

The princess will be one of 34 people awarded the association’s badge of honour during a ceremony on Wednesday evening.
Since 1954, she has been the association’s high guardian, a place she took over from her late mother, Crown Princess Märtha.

‘The Women’s Sanitation Association have an important legacy to pass on and convey to new generations. We see what no one else sees, or wants to see, and we do something about it. Princess Astrid has been our guardian for 63 years, and a confident and proud ambassador for the organization’s work,’ said organizational leader, Ellen-Sofie Egeland.

Local associations all over the country have previously been visited by Princess Astrid on notable anniversaries, for opening new buildings, and other events.
The Princess (due to her age and fragility) does not attend so many official engagements as she used to, but she still does a lot. She attends dinners and other things all the time, but for some weird reason it is not listed in the NRH calendar.

Tomorrow's ceremony is at least listed in the calendar:

14.06.2017 Badge of honour
Princess Astrid is presented with the Norwegian Women's Public Health Association's badge of honour (Leangkollen 18:00).

Thanks iceflower!

Well, 86 years of age, Parkinson's disease, several bone fractures over the years due to osteoporosis. - But here she is, still on her duties (yes, quite amazing).

I wasn't aware of her Parkinson's disease. Has that been known for a long time?

She said it herself in a television-interview some years ago (around her 80th birthday, I think).
And although she still has pretty quick movements in her body, one can clearly see the tremors in the Princess' arms/hands and sometimes her jaw (which seems to vary, probably due to the medications).

You can see it from 0:20 in this 2017-video (link). - BTW, be aware that this is far from her worst day.

And sometimes she's in such pain, due to all the bone-fractures in her back, that she has to wear a special corset during Royal-events: Photo (link).
