Queen Sonja gave the presentation "Impressions of Norway" at an event hosted by Innovation Norway at the Nobel Peace Centre yesterday, November 27, 2012. King Harald was present as well. The lecture is based on the Queen's own pictures and experiences of Norwegian nature.

I love Norway's impressive landscape. It's such a beautiful country. The casual picture of the Queen, wearing slippers and preparing the maps before starting the tour, is great.

Totally agree with you. Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, if not the most beautiful, IMO

Nice to see pictures of Queen Sonja doing this typical norwegian things: norwegians love their country and their nature and love to be in contact with it, so hiking a mountain is something I'm sure every norwegian does. It's nice to realise that the royal family, not just the queen, are just like every norwegian in this little details. That's one of the reasons why norwegians love their royal family so much, I think.

Yesterday, January 11, 2012, King Harald granted representatives of the Sami Parliament of Norway audience.
– Fikk et hjertelig møte med Kongen - NRK Sápmi - NRK
Google Translation
The audience was scheduled for 15 minutes, but lasted longer.
"We had a lot to say and that was also the case that he posed some questions, so we sat there so long that the King wanted us to sit there", said Sami Parliament vice president, Laila Susanne Vars.
"The King was very nice to us and he seemed very interested in hearing more about Sami elderly situation", says the president of the Sami Parliament elders, Inga Karlsen.

It's a nice article!

Today, January 17, 2013, King Harald granted the new Ambassador of Zambia, Her Excellency Ms Edith Mutale, and the new Ambassador of Kyrgyzstan, His Excellency Mr Bolot Otunbaev, a formal audience.
kongehuset.no - Høytidelig audiens

All new ambassadors have to present their credentials (introduction letter) to the King before they can start their work in Norway. The presentation of credentials is a very solemn occasion, where the new ambassador is recalled in one of the King's cars and driven to the castle, where they are welcomed by the Garden parade and the King in gala uniform.

Finnish artist Tiina Kivinen was awarded last June with The Queen Sonja Nordic Art Award.
Some time ago Tiina Kivinen and queen Sonja were working some days together in Sweden, the queen got tips from Kivinen.
This meeting was very secret, only swedish police and the queen's security team knew about it.
Only one reporter, Kari Lumikero, from finnish MTV3 was invited to meet the queen and Tiina Kivinen.
The queen and Tiina Kivinen are going to have an exhibition together in the future.
http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/ohj...13/1582635.jpg

The report was shown yesterday evening in MTV3, it stars at this video at 34.40 (the last mark).
Katsomo - 45 minuuttia

Tiina Kivinen tells that she thought that some of her friends were joking with her, when she got a call from Oslo about the Award last summer. She thought that they had arranged her to some funny program on the radio.
