Norwegian royal expert Kjell Arne Totland writes in his blog that "As late as Monday morning it was told at the Royal House website that Peres was "the royal couple's guest" - and that "Their Majesties the King and Queen" would participate in events both days".
But when the event the solemn reception at Palace Square, was held at 10:00 am Monday morning, Queen Sonja was absent.
To general astonishment and consternation.
But according the Palace there is simply no drama in this: Queen Sonja "is on a long-planned trip."
Her Majesty was also quickly removed from all program records both Monday and Tuesday.

Great video, thank you! It´s the 1st time I was able to watch the whole welcoming ceremony completely and not just a 30 sec. clip!
Have you noticed the two boys in front of the palace "freakin´out" to the military music while waiting for the arrival of the president and CP Haakon?
Very funny...!
I´m so enthusiastic about the CPss outfit. She looked so elegant and I especially liked her long white gloves!
Still Her Majesty is missed!

I noticed that The King didn't wear the badge of his St. Olav. Is it known why?
