Queen Sonja visited on Saturday privately Kiasma, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki. The Queen is in Helsinki with king Harald, who participates at the world championships of the 8mR class sailboats. The curator Jonna Strandberg told to Helsingin Sanomat, that they had a call on Friday that the queen would visit the museum.

What a story (told by Bent Stiansen from the Mini Bottle Gallery):

Queen Sonja and King Harald were at The Mini Bottle Gallery in Oslo for a private party (it doesn't say when it was).
The gallery has a slide down (see picture in the article) and Queen Sonja wanted to try as well King Harald rolled his eyes. Dressed in a silk dress of high quality, she had a tremendous speed. But it didn't go as planned. The Queen was so fast that she scraped with her elbow against the rough basement wall, and the blood flowed. But she just ordered a glass of cognac, washed the wound and the party continued as if nothing had happened.

Poor Queen Sonja! I hope it didn´t hurt too much!
But this episode shows once more the Queen´s zest for live, which her husband, I´m sur,e secretly admires!

Last week at August 14, Queen Sonja was present when the ballet performance "På sommerslottet" ("At the Summer Palace") premiered at Oscarshall.
The show is a collaboration between The Norwegian Opera & Ballet, the Oslo Chamber Music Festival and Open Castles. Queen Sonja is patron of both first named organizations - in addition to being the Honorary Chairman of the Royal Court unit for culture - Open Castles.

Another nice story about King Harald:

Last weekend, King Harald has been on a 3-day-tour in Engerdal together with and invited by the guys of the relay from the ski world championships in 1966.
It all started by chance: country skier from 1966, Gjermundshamn Eggen, was sitting at the table with King Harald during the Royal dinner at the National Skiing Championships last winter. Eggen says: "I talked about the unity and camaraderie in the relay team and the annual walking tour in Engerdal. It would be fun if the King would also be included."
A few weeks later came the message from the Royal Palace, that the King would take part, but it had to happen in silence. The King gave notice that he wanted to be treated equal to the relay team members during the tour. So he took his turn in the kitchen service, fried fish and rowed while Gjermundshamn collected stuffed trout nets.
"A good rower and a very pleasant and sober companion. He asked if he should pay toll on the way to Hyllsjøen. I asked him to run through, smiles Gjermundshamn."

Today, September 6, King Harald visited flood stricken areas in Kvam. They were badly affected by the floods in 2011 - there are still many of the flood victims in Kvam who couldn't move back to their houses yet.
