Here is a small picture gallery from isifa & i must say that the fourth (last) picture is quite cute but yet makes me smile.
Ive tried to look for a few article in english about the visit but didnt find any except the ones ive posted earlier. I hope we'd get what was said at the press conference.

Sonja attended the DZ Bank the last day. She wore a bright red suit:
Lånte Merkels privat-jet
(The article is about the fact that Sonja and Harald used Merkel's private jet to get to Düsseldorf)

It was a little bit sad. German (lokal) newspapers wrote, that there was nobody waving to King Harald and Queen Sonja...
Just because of the fact, that they are not so popular in Germany...

It's a shame... Maybe the German journalists should just research a bit better. If they had a closer look they would have realized that it was nearly not possible for the people to get close to the Royal Couple.
I saw pictures on TV that showed the very high security standards.
Harald and Sonja had no chance to get close to the people.. you may notice this when you have a second look at all the pictures in this thread...
The only contact to the people has been the meeting with the kids after they arrived in Berlin...
Have a look at the Brandeburg Gate pictures: the people had to stay 500 meters away ... like during the rest of the Visit...
So, how should the photographers get pictures of the people waving to the couple?
Tzztzzz
Well, apart from this it's true... Harald and Sonja really don't belong to the best-known monarchs in Germany.

Wait a minute...
It is so.....

The royals of Spain, UK, Netherlands are very popular.
Sweden too, because Queen Silvia is from Heidelberg.

Norway: Only Haakon and Mette-Marit are popular because of the wedding and the rumors about Mette-Marit.

Be happy with that, here nobody knows about Luxembourg or Belgium.

Yes of course, I know.
Harald and Sonja are just too boring for the German press: no scandals , no interesting stories.
(Notice: since the Angel School-Story Märtha Louise is in TV every week ).

But, it is also fact, that the people were "kept away" from the places H & S visited . ... as I explained before.
