Articles from Royal Central and Norway Today about the King's engagement on January 8th - see photos and videos in post 200:

King Harald opens the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue’s new centre – Royal Central
Quote:
His Majesty King Harald V of Norway opened Monday the Norwegian “Sea Rescue Company’s” new centre at Langgrunn near the town of Horten, south of the Norwegian capital of Oslo. The centre “RS Noatun” is the company’s new school and adventure centre.

His Majesty had the honour to cut the red ribbon under the supervision of Horten’s mayor, Are Karlsen, employees and volunteers at the Norwegian Sea Rescue Company. Hundreds of children and spectators were present and were very happy that the King had wanted to visit them. After the official opening, the ceremony continued in the restaurant Njord with food, speeches and songs about the sea performed by the famous Norwegian singer Helene Bøksle.

Quote:
The rescue company has now created educational course activities in training in navigation, and search and rescue under one roof. In the summer, the center will offer training for seagoing children and young people.

RS Noatun is the largest single investment for the rescue company’s 126-year history. The King has been the Rescue Company’s highest protector for as long as King Oscar 2 donated 1,000 kroner to the company in 1891.

The King attends the Norwegian Skiing Championships at Gåsbu in Hamar municipality, 13 - 14 January - day 1:

Photos of HM congratulating the amazing female winner Marit Bjørgen (the most successful cross-country skier of all times):

About the King:

1. The event is being sent live on NRK1 and HM appears to be in great shape.

2. There has been some concern about the King attending this event. - Why? Because he was (as most people here know) hospitalized in November with an infection after he attended the Royal Air Force's reception ceremony for F-35 at Ørland Air Station (also a partial outdoor event).

See the above post for yesterday's photos where a very happy King congratulated Marit Bjørgen and Martin Johnsrud Sundby with their individual victories.

Article from Trønder-Avisa with quotes translated by me:
Her sniker Thomas til seg en klem av kongen -Trønder-Avisa
Quote:
Thomas Albertsen Dahlen, who finished the first leg, was also the first to get up to the royal tribune, and used the chance to get a hug with the beloved and sports-interested monarch.

"I did not think at all. But when I first got to met him, I thought I could as well give him a hug too," he laughs.

''It was a 'once in a lifetime'. It was awesome and very great to meet him. A memory for life!''
Article from Aftenposten with two quotes translated by me:
https://www.aftenposten.no/100Sport/...t-248415b.html
Quote:
"I asked the king if we were able to entertain him. It was very great to meet him. I have seen him on skiing arrangements before and know that he is interested,'' says Albertsen Dahlen, who got a big smile and laughter back from the king when he took the opportunity to get a hug.
Quote:
Q: How much would you say this hug means to you?

''It's at the top. It was not planned, but it is the most important hug of my life," says Albertsen Dahlen.
Photo of the hug:

As one can read, even sports stars think it's great to meet the King (a monarch who is undoubtedly the world's most popular head of state in his own country).

Some nice shots of cheerful, ski sports-mad King Harald have also been added to the official website:

In most monarchies, the monarch nonchalantly embracing a member of the public would be beyond belief. Hats off to King Harald.
