General News & Information for King Harald V and Queen Sonja

I look forward to the program Mountain Queen on Sunday.

Queen Sonja have walked in the Norwegian mountains with the popular NRK journalist Oddgeir Bruaset the past three years.

Queen Sonja gets a good coverage today, in Norway as well as Denmark:
Nødstedte piger fik uventet hjælp: Dronning Sonja trådte til med førstehjælp til skadet sejler - Royale | www.bt.dk

Tønsbergs Blad - Fikk førstehjelp av Dronning Sonja

Off the island of Mågerø a boat with three girls ended up in troube when one of the girls cut herself badly on the boats propeller.
Fortunately a boat passed nearby. That boat assisted the girls into a cove on the island, located next to the royal residence there.
Here bodyguards provided first aid for the injured girl who was then taken to a hospital. As I read the article Queen Sonja offered comfort, also for the two other girls by wrapping them in blankets.

The story is confirmed by the court: "I can confirm that the Queen and staff from the escort-service took part in helping an injured girl at the shore near the Royal cottage".

King Harald has back pain - must stay home
Kongen har vondt i ryggen må holde seg hjemme - TV2.no

Quote:
King Harald has for some time had back pain, the palace informs on Saturday afternoon.

He will therefore have to remain at home during the Armed Forces Memorial Day, which is marked at Akershus on Sunday. Crown Prince Haakon will take over the king's duties at the remembrance day. There are no other changes in the King's program, according to the Royal Palace.

''King Harald has for some time been suffering from back pain, but he has to now completed his scheduled program. The event at Akershus on Sunday, however, is of such a nature that His Majesty has chosen to let the Crown Prince take over over. The celebration takes place outdoors - and entails sitting still for a long time, something anyone with back problems know can be painful.'' says TV2 royal expert Kjell Arne Totland.

Armed Forces Memorial Day marks the first Sunday in November at Akershus Fortress in honor of those who lost their lives in the Armed Forces service in and outside Norway.

According to Totland, King Harald has had very good health in recent years, after he was both operated for cancer and heart problems in 2003 and 2005.

"I feel fit as a fiddle," has been his permanent answers to journalists' questions in recent years, says Totland.
I don't agree with Totland in this. The King has become a bit frail now, he has back and knee problems, and he has trouble walking. I've seen him several times and both I and others have noticed that he is breathing very heavily, especially after going up stairs.

I agree, but most of what King Harald does takes place inside the palace and Haakon does much on his own already! And I think that he does as much as Frederik, if not more.

King Harald has canceled several engagements this week too, but he will have several audiences at the palace.

King Harald must cancel engagement with Mette-Marit because of back trouble

King Harald is struggling with back pain. The King will have a slightly reduced program this week, the palace says.

The King should have been present together with the Crown Princess during the celebration of the Norwegian Red Cross 150th anniversary Wednesday (yesterday).

It was also planned a meeting at the Norwegian Athletics Veterans Thursday this week, but this was also canceled.

Finland celebrates in 2017 100 years of independence. President Sauli Niinistö told about the celebrations to the press on Tuesday.
Among other things, the centenary year will also feature in the President’s trips abroad and visits from overseas to Finland. For example, on 1 June, visits to Finland will be made by all of the Nordic heads of state i.e. the monarchs of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and the President of Iceland.
