Also on December 20, King Harald attended a reception at the City Hall on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Norwegian Wrestling Association.
King Harald did wrestling when he was Crown Prince and a cadet at the Military Academy.
"It was told that the Crown Prince (Harald) wanted to compete in wrestling, but it was stopped for safety reasons of his adjutants."

It was so adorable how Sonja and Harald were completing each others sentences.

It's the 'Kongesangen' (Song of the King), which is Norway's Royal anthem (not the National anthem). The melody is the same than the British 'God save the Queen'.


Yesterday, King Harald attended the Sports Gala at Oslo Spektrum, January 4, 2014.

The swedish King´s first "No" to join the 200-years-festivities seem to cause raised eye-brows even more in his homecountry than in Norway.
Sometimes I wonder how a 40 years reigning head of state can be so undiplomatic...? (not his first major faux-pas, unfortunately)

Queen Sonja looked lovely at this engagement! Despite all these intrusive reporters and questions she remained serene, calm and dignified. She´s a great person!
