Thanks Iceflower!

Well, let's first write a bit about The Regent-Couple's time at The Nordic World Ski Championships in Seefeld from February 25th to March 1st, where Norway took 13 gold medals, 5 Silver medals and 7 bronze medals. Because Their Majesties were in great spirits, hugging and chatting with the athletes and everything. The youthful and amazingly fit 81-year-old Queen even took herself a two-hour skiing-trip with a pair of skis borrowed from the Norwegian Cross-country skiing star Therese Johaug (who took 3 golds).
They also had a dinner with some "starstruck" athletes who were ''very nervous'' about sitting at the same table as the extremely popular and charismatic monarch. (BTW, I think they were quite nervous about sitting with The Queen too.)

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

And then to today's International Women's Day ''Empowerment breakfast" with minority women attended by The Queen, who has described herself as a ''feminist'' - and who is credited with bringing awareness to immigrant/refugee women in Norway through her visits to organizations working for them and her speaking about their rights in interviews, etc.

The event was organized by ''The MiRA Resource Centre for Immigrant and Refugee Women,'' which has The Queen as its patron.

Read about it in this English Wikipedia article (link) and see two pictures of The Queen's previous visits on their Norwegian website (link).

The event took place at Melahuset (The Mela-house) in Oslo. - Read about it in English at the bottom of this site (link).

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

One can see photos from both this events in Iceflowers posts on page 16 .

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

Was there anything else? Yes, The King had an audience with The Prime Minister today; followed by a Council of State at The Royal Palace, where The Crown Prince was also in attendance. (No photos of it.)

And yet, the shaman said in the interview on television that he had already met the King and Queen ... This guy is full of lies (the shaman .. not the King ..).
