Norway’s royal couple to visit Green Point stadium as part of SA visit

"On the agenda while in South Africa, it is planned for the royal couple to visit the Green Point stadium in Cape Town, which is one of the two semi-final venues for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Local Organising Committee chairperson Irvin Khoza would likely give the royal couple a tour of the stadium."

Apparently the royals wanted to meet with Nelsen Mandela but that wa sno possible.
Its said that he does not see poeple of rumors of his health and that he is not a public person anymore.
It was the King & Queens dream to meet with him during the visit and he was also contacted to to see whether it was possible.
