70th Birthday Celebrations of King Harald V. of Norway

King Harald V. celebrates his 70th Birthday.


King Harald's birthday on 21 February 2007 will be started with a church service in the Trefoldighetskirken in Oslo. Later that day there will be some kind of arrangement in Palace Park, and the day will be concluded with a dinner at Akershus castle.

The Nordic heads of states and guests from the Royal Houses of Europe are invited to Olso from 23-25 February. A ball will be held at the Royal Palace on 24 February.

Post News and Pictures of this event here.

Has there already been a guestlist published?
I really wonder if all the pregnant Princesses will attend and by which members the Royal Houses will be represented...
I was also wondering if Queen Elizabeth II will come to Norway .. She and King Harald seem to be very close!

Guestlists are usually released very close to the actual event, but usually some of the papers who get tired of waiting or need a story starts calling the courts to ask who is comming or it is put in some royal agenda who is attending. Surly Queen Elizabeth wont be comming, for sure. It would be nice of Camilla could come with Charles as she has not attended such events yet, also Princess Anne is Haakons godmother.

usually the norwegian events dont contian much non reigening royals, except the greeks/Berleburgs.

I'm not so sure about Elizabeth. She is very close to Harald, from what I understand, so there is a possibility she will come. I think it may be doubtful, but I still hold hope she'll come.

I hope Mary is able to come. I'd love to see her in an elegant ball gown, as well as Letizia. Soemhow I doubt Letizia will come though. The only event she's been to that's outside of Spain is Mary & Fred's wedding.

Letizia also attended the Luxembourg 25th anniversary celebrations last year.

The Birthday Celebrations will be on a weekend, the Duke of Edinburgh will have an engagement on Friday, but both the couple will not have engagements until Tuesday, so hopefully the Queen will be in Norway this time for King Harald's Celebrations although it's still unlikely.

I very much doubt that Queen Elizabeth will go. She'll send The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall I think. Which is nice really because Camilla gets a chance to meet the extended family she hasn't met already and she'll be able to sport a tiara again.

I would expect both Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik to be accompanied by the Crown Princely couple on this occasion That's if Mary is up to going.

I would also expect Queen Beatrix to be accompanied by The Prince of Oranje and Princess Maxima.

Japan will probably be represented by the Crown Prince, though it would be fantastic if the Crown Princess also attended.

I think All members of the immediate Swedish royal family shall attend.

I don't see Queen Elizabeth attending, but I think its very possible that The Duke of Edinburgh shall represent the British royal family. If not, then The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Why wouldn't Mary be up to going? In another month or so, she shouldn't be that far along in her pregnancy that she wouldn't be able to attend events, would she? Or would she choose to sit it out BECAUSE of her pregnancy?

I think for something like this, we'll see most of the crowned heads of Europe, and in their place, the heirs apparent.

It was merely an observation in regards to a posibility. I'm sure she will attend if invited

I think that too, that she'll attend if invited. It's not that far from Copenhagen to Oslo, and it's not a too stressful journey, whether you choose the land route or the sea route.

How about from Spain? I guess Queen Sofia will go but I'm not too sure about the King. He doesn't always attend these things. Felipe and Letizia? I really hope they do go, because I want to see Letizia with the other Crown Princesses! But somehow I don't think that they will

Of course, this is purely speculation from me

I think we'll see the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall representing Britain and I'll predict that Her Royal Highness will wear the Honeycomb Boucheron Tiara and will be sporting either the Royal Family Order of Elizabeth II or a Norwegian order.

I am looking forward to this occasion to see all the gala outfits and tiaras. I doubt whether Queen Elizabeth will attend, she may even send Anne. I won't be surprised to see the whole DRF including Joachim.

I'm dying to see the evening dresses and tiaras, I don't think Queen Elizabeth attend, but I would like to see there the Princes of Wales and his wife.
