This is a touching picture: Queen Sonja with Queen Silvia, comforting her at the 9/11 memorial
http://www.nettavisen.no/imagecache/..._8474653x4.jpg

Ooops King Harald stepped on the Queen Sonja's dress

But he was also the savior when the cabinet secretary Berit Tversland - after helping Queen Sonja with the dress - stepped wrong and fell backwards down the escalator. She was not injured and laughed the whole ride up the escalator.

I think it´s a bit of a pity that there wasn´t even a short stop at the White House...

Maybe Queen Sonja should take the hint and but a new evening gown and put this one in the back of the closet along with the salmon colored one she brings out regularly.
