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..

President Niinistö and mrs Haukio gave to the king and the queen graphic art of Tiina Kivinen (mrs Haukio inaugurates the art gallery of Kivinen today, Kivinen won the Queen Sonja Nordic Art Award 2012) and Ultima Thule - Arctic Explorations book. 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.
