Celebration underway

King Harald and Queen Sonja were in Longyearbyen on Wednesday to help the capital of Svalbard kick off its centennial celebrations.
The children of Longyearbyen's day care center welcomed their royal guests with flowers, flag-waving and song when the Norwegian monarchy arrived at the Governor's Square in unusually mild weather.................
