Queen Sonja won't attend the state visit due to an infection in her right foot.

How unfortunate ! I hope Queen Sonja recovers quickly.

I assume Mette-Marit will participate if her health permits, she just hasn’t been announced in advance as has become customary.

As The King has previously said, ''that (81-year-young) woman is a bit too active!'' So it won't surprise me if this has occurred after one of her many trips in the mountains/forests.

Two more engagements:
His Majesty the King, His Excellency President Moon Jae-in and First lady Kim Jung-sook visit HNoMS Maud at Haakonsvern Naval Base (Bergen, 16:15).
His Majesty the King, His Excellency President Moon Jae-in and First lady Kim Jung-sook attend a short concert in composer Edvard Grieg’s home at Troldhaugen (Bergen, 17:15).

Yes, but she was ''completely exhausted'' after her two-day ''literature metro'' from May 8-10th and had to take a long break from the balcony on May 17th, so I personally doubt it.

--------------------

Reasons for the visit from Norway's point of view:
South Korea is our second largest Asian trading partner after China and is, therefore, an important partner for Norwegian business and industry.

The programme:
Royal Central article with translated information from Norwegian Royal Commentator, Oskar Aanmoen (link).

TV-coverage:
As I've written in other threads, we've come to a point here now where every major/special royal occasion is being televised. But when it comes to non-royal state visits that are not from the US and Russia (and probably China)? No, not that much! But there have been times when The Norwegian News Agency (NTB) has ''bothered'' to film the procession/speeches during the gala-dinners, which means a live-link and some coverage on TV2 News Channel. So let's hope for the best.

I certainly don’t expect her to attend everything, but I’m hoping her health is well, so that she can do one engagement on the first day – perhaps the welcome ceremony or the state banquet. Whichever is easier on her.

The Queen not able to attend and the CPcss possibly also not able due to poor health to act as stand-in for the Queen - that´s too sad...

I hope Queen Sonja gets well soon. South Korea has been receiving a lot of royal visitors lately!

Thanks, Eya & Iceflower!

The Norwegian Royal House article above will be updated throughout the evening, so I won't translate information from it, especially since we are likely to get an English version after the dinner. But read about the programme in the Royal Central article in post 8.

BTW, here is a YouTube video from Norwegian Royal Commentator, Oskar Aanmoen (link).
And as one can see, much pomp and circumstance in a rainy Oslo today with His Majesty The King’s Guard and The Staff Band of The Norwegian Armed Forces. Another thing to notice is that Princess Astrid now has to use a stamp to sign things with, due to her tremors.
See it from 2:10, and read more about her health here (link).

----------------

Well, as I've done in other threads during gala dinners, let's go through the happenings in detail again:
(If some of the photos don't show, click on them more than once.)

19:45 CEST (25 min ago): The guests will be greeted by The King, The President-Couple, The Crown Prince and Princess Astrid in Speilsalen (the Music Hall). - Photos of the room: 1 - 2

They will then walk into the Smal Dining Room. - Photos of the room: 1 - 2 - 3

And then into the Smal Ballroom. - Photos of the room: 1 - 2

And then into the The Great Ballroom. - Photos of the room: 1 - 2 - 3

And then into the Banqueting Hall. - Photos of the room: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

20:00 CEST: The royal procession (headed by Lord Chamberlain, Gry Mølleskog) will go through the same beautiful rooms. And after entering the Banqueting Hall, The King and The President will give speeches, followed by the National Anthems.

Another thing to mention is that since this is a gala-dinner for a visiting head of state, The King and Crown Prince will be in uniforms and not white-tie as they are for other gala-dinners. I.e. the stortingsdinner, diplomatdinner and milestone celebratory-dinners.

BTW, if there is a live-link available, I will of course post it.

Hard to tell if Princess Astrid is wearing a tiara.

It looks to be the same lady that escorted her at the funeral of Grand Duke Jean.

Princess Märtha Louise could come in handy in moments like these if she were still a working member of the Royal Family.

Unfortunately it won’t get better until Ingrid Alexandra is old enough to take up official royal duties. The King and Queen and Princess Astrid are aging , and Crown Princess MM’s health problems preclude her from being as active as she used to be before.
