Here is a summary from the VG article the confirms the above mentioned guests after having contacted the different courts and in addition the following

Princess Ragnhild and Erling Lorentzen
Haakon and Martha Lorentzen
Princess Astrid and Johan Martin Ferner and children
King Albert and Queen Paola
Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex
Princess Anne and Timothy Laurence
The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg
King Constanitjn and Queen Anne Marie
Probably Pavlos and Marie Chantal
Princess Kristine

Yesterday Birthday director Bentein Baardson was on a tour of the palace park with people from the court and the city of Oslo. Baardson is the official Norways "partyfixer", whenever there is something that shal be perfect he is in charge, like the opening ceremony for the Lillehammer Olympics, the Ibsen year, the events around the Crown Prince wedding.

21 Febuary, National Celebration
Stortinget (parlament) will honour the King with a ceremony right outside the Palace, here the King will get the gift from Stortinget, according to VG it is a staue of his mother that will stand in the north end of the park, in the south end there is already a staue of his grandmother Queen Maud

A service in the Trinity church

23 Febuary
900 guests will gather in city hall, all the mayors in Norway is invited, so is all the county-mayors and countymen, according to the city of Oslo, only 3 people have turned down the invitation. Also royals from abroad will be at this arrangement. The event will las an hour and a half and all the 21 countys are invited to give some cultural performance

After that there will be a "family dinner" at Skaugum

24 Febuary
There will be an event outside the Palace in the daytime, what kind of event is a secret, but Queen Sonja is in charge

In the evening there will be a gala dinner with dancing at the royal palace.

Though I of course would rather see the younger generation in fabulous galagowns and tiaras, I can understand that for a birthday party the guests should mainly be people with whom the birthday-boy has shared some more time.
Harald will probably have more from a visit of Benedicte or the dutch queen's sister Margriet than from a visit of Mary or Mathilde, whom he has known for a mere couple of years.
The "older" generation however has been together "forever", has been meeting eachother at most events in their life.
(On second though, probably hightime to mix up the guestlist with some fresh faces )

I think that among the guests confirmed/semiconfirmed so far, there's a nice mix of young and old. We've got the three young Dutch couples as well as Queen Beatrix, the Wessex's, Princess Anne, Princess Madeleine as well as Crown Princess Victoria, the Swedish Monarchs, as well as Queen Margrethe & Prince Henrik, and Frederik, Mary, and Joachim.

After re-reading the article, and not just looking at the pictures it says that Belgian court will be represented with Albert and Paola, and several of their children

And it says the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg will possible be accompanied by other members of the family

Princess Kristine celebrates christmas with the Norwegian King and Queen every year, this is how she and her husband was styled on the guestlist for Haakons wedding

Princess Ragnhild and husband will not attend

According to Aftenposten Princess Ragnhild and her husband will not attend the celebrations of King Harald's 70th birthday.

Not attending the King’s 70th birthday.

Princess Ragnhild and her husband Erling Lorentzen have noted that they will not be attending King Harald’s 70th birthday February 21. They will not be present at Princess Astrid’s 75th birthday next week.
It is Se og Hør’s website seher.no that notes that the king’s sister “due to happened circumstances” will not attend the party in Norway, where about 60 guests from Europe’s royal houses has confirmed their attendance.
According to what seher.no knows, King Harald’s sister and brother-in-law has told the king directly what the reason for they staying at home in Rio de Janeiro, but late Monday evening nobody at the Palace will comment on the guestlist not being as planned.
According to the Danish newspaper BT Queen Margrehte won’t be attending the 70th birthday party in Oslo, even if she accepted the invitaiton. The Danish queen will undergo knee suregery next week, and has thus canceled a large part of her planned arrangement the nearest months.
But Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary and Prince Joachim will be at the birthday party in Oslo, the newspaper reports.

Avbud til Kongens 70-årsdag

Though I find it curious that a serious newspaper such as Aftenposten use Se og Hør and the Danish B.T. as sources...

In addition to that the German Television ARD will show a portrait of King Harald in the evening: It will be shown from 21:45 to 22:15, which means 9.45 pm to 10.15 pm on 21th February 2007.
