This happened in 1936, Sonja never got the chance to meet her brother. She was born in 1937, a year after the boating accident.

Getty has photos from the gala event, and I noticed Queen Sonja is wearing what appears to be an emerald bead necklace and earrings. Are they new? I haven't seen them before.
