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.
