Did anyone notice that Princess Astrid curtsied to the President as she was shaking his hand? It's contagious in Norway! 😄😏

Am I the only one shocked by how much King Harald looks unhealthy?
He walks with difficulty and seems to struggle to catch his breath

I noticed how slowly and stiffly he walked. He does appear to have aged.

I guess they assume all Heads of State deserve a curtsy, which actually makes sense to me.

Fair point.

Also, it is lovely how MM always curtsies to the Duchess of Cornwall when they meet.

Its nice seeing the differences between the different monarchies in agendas during state visits. In Denmark, for example, I see the crown prince couple being the ones in the majority of the events with the presidential couple. In Norway, it is the King and Queen.

No, royal protocol reserves curtsies to Kings/ Emperors and Queens/ Empresses only, not to republican heads of state. In the past even "First Ladies" were expected to curtsy royal persons (also to princesses or princes), but never the other way round!
This new kind of habit for a princess to curtsy commoners seems to be a thing of this generation and a purely norwegian-thing to do (never seen it anywhere else)

The Queen and the CPss both look like a dream tonight, though!

High-level event on polar issues at the Fram Museum.
HE President Mukherjee, Ms Mukherjee, and Their Majesties The King and Queen visit the Fram Museum, to demonstrate the value of polar research, with an emphasis on climate change, as well as the value of ongoing and planned Indo-Norwegian research cooperation in this field.
