But somehow these European State visits never intrigue me..All those countries are so small..Just like going from one state to another in US or India (latter is a better example..different language and culture for each state)... Especially among Scandivanian nations..or among Balkans..too close..
Though royals do always add up colour and dignity..one good thing..

The King also received the Rapala lure festive box and Queen Sonja Marimekko tablecloth and napkins, which the pattern is called Sonja. Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit received both Suunto watches.
