Thanks iceflower!

--------------------

As I have written in other threads, the King is very concerned with women and children who are victims of violence (as I hope most normal people are), and have been engaged in this topic for many years.

Thanks to eya & iceflower!

Well, aren't they amazing?

After a hectic county visit to Nordland (which was concluded yesterday), and they are already back on duty, not bad.

--------------------

The Queen was actually a close friend of Jakob Weidemann, who died in 2001 at the age of 78. - And she has previously said that he was a great source of inspiration to her.

--------------------

The King presided over the Council of State at the Royal Palace today, as usual. - The Crown Prince was also in attendance.

The Queen visits Skudeneshavn and Avaldsnes on Karmøy today from 10:00 (09:00 UK time).

Infromation about the visit:
At 10.00 this morning, the Queen arrives with the Royal Yacht in Skudeneshavn where she is welcomed by the mayor and county governor.

Then she will take a walk in the streets of the city where she, among other things, will greet staff from Solstein (a local company, who has the task of finding jobs for individuals on disability pensions and producing products and services that can find a market in the local business community). She will also visit Badehuset (the bathhouse).

She arrives in Avaldsnes at 12.00. Among other things, she will have a tour around the History Center and Avaldsnes church.

Follow it here in this live-video: Karmøynytt - live

A royal yacht is so very useful, not least in Norway.

Yes, and both the King and Queen have actually said that they are totally dependent on Royal Yacht to perform their roles, especially in a country like Norway.

The Regent couple also used the yacht when they were on their annual County Visit last week, and as you can see in some of the photos in the thread below, she's a real beauty: Annual County Visits

More about the Queen's visit to Skudeneshavn and Avaldsnes today:

80 min video from much of her visit to Skudeneshavn - Karmøynytt

I had actually translated the titles on these two photo-galleries to English and everything, but I didn't had the time to post it before now, and then iceflower was here before me.

HM also granted an ordinary audience to the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and two farewell audiences to the outgoing ambassadors of Germany and Canada.
NTB is only allowed in to take pictures of formal audiences or audiences with foreign heads of states, ministers, leaders of organizations, and winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. - But they are not allowed in for other audiences, so there are no photos of it.

Thanks, Royal Norway & Iceflower.

Yes, she's a beauty - the yacht.

I really appreciate the Swedish and Norwegian fondness for national and local attire. It adds something extra to such events. A more colorful note if you get my meaning.
I wish we in DK used the local attires more, but they are basically only used by traditional dancers, more or less in the background.
Greenland and the Faeroe Islands on the other hand are almost fanatical about their traditional attire. I like that.

There is actually an exhibition at the Queen Sonja Art Stable now, where several royal bunads are exhibited, and I recommend everyone who are in Oslo this sommer to visit it (I plan to do it next week BTW).

Read/watch about it here: Norwegian Royal Family Current Events Part 3: May 2018 -

Article from Oskar Aanmoen: King Harald and Queen Sonja attend military tattoo in Oslo – Royal Central
Quote:
His Majesty King Harald and Her Majesty Queen Sonja watched Thursday afternoon His Majesty the King’s Guard perform in the Palace Square from the Palace Balcony at Royal Palace in Oslo. Over a thousand people had met up to see the show lasting for 30 minutes.
Quote:
His Majesty the King’s Guard is the Norwegian King’s lifeguard and the largest department in the Royal Norwegian Army. The Royal Guard is also a part of the city defence of Oslo and is prepared to support the police in crises. After the bombing of the government quarter in 2011, more than 700 guards were in armed action to support the police in the protections of the Government Quarter and other important buildings in Oslo.
