King Harald V’s 25th Anniversary/Silver Jubilee: January 2016/June 2016

Article from October:
Gir arrangementer i gave til kongeparet - Aftenposten

Translated by me:
Quote:
Celebrations in Oslo during the day and a gala performance in the University Aula in the evening.

January 17 next year, it is 25 years since Harald and Sonja became Norway's King and Queen. On the occasion of the anniversary the government has planned an event in the Oslo city center during the day and a gala performance in the University Aula in the evening as a gift to the royal couple. Prime Minister Erna Solberg believes they will like it.

The large outdoor event in the Oslo city center is open to all. There will be both activities and entertainment for the whole family.

A point with the gift is that it symbolizes their life as King and Queen and the way they have united the people together with the royal family, says Prime Minister Solberg.

All the details are not yet clear, but due to lack of space there will be only invited guests at the gala performance, including representatives from both the government and parliament. The event is in collaboration with NRK, and will be aired on NRK the same evening.

I hope they are happy with the gift, and think that it is in line with their work as King and Queen, the Prime Minister said.

Carl Gustaf and Silvia will be there, and I believe (as you do) that Margrethe and maybe Henrik will be there too.

The Danish royal calendar is only updated approximately two-three weeks ahead, so Danish attendance hasn't been announced yet but I'm certain that QMII and Henrik – and perhaps even Frederik and Mary – will be there.

Konge og dronning i 25 år (1:7) - Programomtaler

Translated by me:
Quote:
King and Queen for 25 years (1: 7)

NRK1 Wednesday December 30 at 19:45.

We celebrate the royal couple's regent anniversary with a new series that is composed of a varied and rich archival material. The King and Queen have lent the NRK private films and pictures that has never been shown publicly before. The series also includes new interviews with King Harald and Queen Sonja.

January 17, 2016, it is 25 years since King Olav died and Crown Prince Harald took the throne.

NRK tells the story through flashbacks from NRK's abundant archives combined with new interviews and private film and image material on loan from the Royal Palace. Among other things, Queen Sonja contributes with recordings from her childhood, childhood home and cottage in Tjøme. Her parents are also in the footage.

Through seven episodes, we get a picture of how the royal couple have worked. At the same time the series show how the society has changed during these 25 years.

In addition to new interviews with King Harald and Queen Sonja and and the rest of the royal family, the series also contains interviews with prime ministers. All prime ministers that Norway has had since 1991 contributes, as do both supporters and opponents of the monarchy. We hear what people think about our King and Queen.

The series is divided thematically and covers both good and less good days for the royal couple. Among the difficult issues is what happened when King Harald interfered in the constitutional amendment on the church and the criticism Queen Sonja received when she exhibited her own photos. Princess Märtha Louise's sponsored horse in the 1990s was also a difficult matter.

First episode

It was love at first sight when Crown Prince Harald and Ms. Sonja Haraldsen met each other in 1959. But they had to fight against the king and government for nine years before they got married.

The story we are told in the first program is essential to understand the choices the royal couple later have made.

In this episode we will see images that are not shown before, from the time they were a "secret" couple in the 1960s.

Responsible for the series is Kirsti Marie Skrede (NRK's royal correspondent/reporter).
King Harald and Queen Sonja being interviewed at what I think is Bygdø Kongsgård for the series.
http://gfx.nrk.no//Ds137-1uV0jFbgeSB...mP81lEUs0d8JYQ

King Harald is a kind, caring and funny man who has been and still is an amazing King who almost everyone here in Norway like and respects. I like Queen Sonja too, and she did not deserve the criticism she received throughout the 1990s.

I am also sure that Haakon and Mette-Marit (which I really like, but who has made some mistakes) will do a great job as King and Queen when the time comes.

I'm really looking forward to both the celebrations and documentaries.

I guess we also see Princess Mabel of Oranje-Nassau, as her late husband was a godson of King Harald.

Royal couple for 25 years: Program for the press
Sunday 17 January 2016 should be marked that it is 25 years since Crown Prince Harald and Crown Princess Sonja became Norway's royal couple.
The day will be marked by, among other concerts on University Square, winter activities at Palace Square, and one gala performance in the University Aula.

Highlights on the anniversary celebrations will be Jubilee journey which will take place with Kongeskipet along the Norwegian coast from 17th - 28th of June, with a church service in the cathedral, on the day 25 years after the consecration.

Program for celebration 15 - 17 January
Winter Festival
King and Queen took contact with NIF to hear if they had wanted to help arrange a ski event for children at the Palace Square on the occasion of the anniversary on 17 January. Confederation thought this was a good idea and came back with a proposal for a large winter sports event for children at the Palace Square.

Government works closely with the sport about the event at the Palace Square, so this will be coordinated with the arrangements contained in the Government's gift to the royal couple, outdoor events at University Square and gala performance in the University Aula. For more detailed information about the activities at the Palace Square, see Regjeringen.no or Facebook / royal couple for 25 years (chained up right).

Events on Palace Square and University Square, is free and open to everyone, and will be specially adapted for children and adolescents. The inaugural performance in the University Hall is displayed directly on the big screen at University Square, and will also be shown on NRK the same evening.

I think you and eya have misunderstood. It says that Margrethe attends the 16th, but it says nothing about the 17th or Henrik.

Translated by me

H. M. The Queen participates January 16, 2016 in celebration of TM King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway's 25th Jubilee.

The royal couple will on January 17, 2016 celebrate 25 years as Norway's King and Queen. The anniversary will be marked by a series of events on 15-17th January 2016.

On January 16 H. M. The Queen participates in a private dinner for family and foreign guests on Skaugum. Skaugum is T.R.H. Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway's residence located in Asker west of Oslo.

To mark the King's and Queen's silver jubilee NRK is publishing new interviews with the King and Queen. Part 1 was about the pre-wedding time. It features new video material of then Sonja Haraldsen and also new private photos of the young couple:

As per the program quoted by Marika in her post above, it is only the Skandinavian mornarchs who take part. That would also be consistent with the way the Queen of Denmark celebrated her ruby jubilee. She too only invited the Skandinavian Royals.

"On the occasion of that Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja on 17 January 2016 has been Norway's royal couple for 25 years, it developed its own anniversary monogram. It is released free of charge for editorial use in the anniversary year 2016. When in use, the monogram as far as possible be placed centered, and so that no other items are higher than the crown."
