Article from yesterday - read more:
King Harald attends the World Championship in sailing – Royal Central
Quote:
The World Championship in sailing started Tuesday and will last five days; the last sailing will happen on Saturday. Perhaps the most prominent athlete competing for the championship title is King Harald V of Norway. The King arrived in Østfold in Norway, where the tournament takes place, on Monday. There are 28 boats registered to start. Next to King Harald in “Sira,” there are also five other Norwegian vessels.

1. The CP couple certainly have their faults, and they are nearly as active as Harald/Sonja were when they were the CP couple.

2. Why? Because they want to be there for their children.

3. But Haakon (and to a lesser extent Mette-Marit) has several engagements each year, and the King said this in a interview with NTB earlier this year:
No pause for breath for the royal couple who've reached the grand age of 80 - Norway Today
Quote:
The king said the crown prince occasionally offers to take over some assignments.

King Harald said, ’But I seldom accept the offer, I should emphasise!’
In other news - from NRK:

Queen Sonja comes to Drammen to walk with a group of immigrant women in the woods on Thursday, August 24th. The background for the visit is DNT Drammen's (The Norwegian Trekking Association in Drammen's) work on trips for multicultural people - picture from NRK:

The Queen also has two engagements today: She granted representatives from the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet an audience earlier today and will attend a concert and reception hosted by the Queen Sonja International Music Competition at Oscarshall (17:00).

From NTB (the Norwegian News Agency) for TV2 and other news sites - summary by me:
Kong Harald besøker amerikanske elitesoldater

"The King will visit the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Norfolk by invitation," says the palace's Deputy Communications Manager Sven Gj. Gjeruldsen to NTB. The visit to the state of Virginia takes place on Wednesday, August 23th.

Next Friday, August 25th, the King will visit the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM or SOCOM).

Other details of the visit have not been announced, but Haakon is (acording to the royal house's program) regent until at least September 1th.

Quote:
His Majesty King Harald V of Norway will make a visit to the United States next week. The visit will, among other things, mean that the King performs official visits in both Florida and in Virginia. It is uncertain how long King Harald will be in the United States, but the visit will last for at least three or four days.

The visit to Virgina will take place on Wednesday, while the visit to Florida will take place Friday, next week. The King will travel alone, no other members of the royal family will join him.
