Tentative programmed events from Innovation Norge:
16. October a seminar with the theme: ”Norway as a tourist destination” and a big evening arrangement where HM Queen Sonja will give her lecture ” Impressions of Norway”, to be followed by a ”Taste of Norway”- buffet dinner.

In Düsseldorf it will be all about energy. There is a seminar planned called ”Sustainability of future energy supply”.

There is also a seminar being planned on climate and polar research. As well as one on Business and succes and equality and family politics.

The king will participate in the opening of a gas power plant in Knapsack Hürth. The Queen will visit a Norwegian exhibition and a German-Norwegian youth forum in Zeche Zollverein i Essen.

EDIT:
I just hope Sonja will leave the yellow dress at home.... we already got to see it twice this year: during the State Visit to Finland and during the State Visit from Brazil.
I wouldn't survive a third time.
Btw: maybe the Queen will wear her dark blue silk dress. She wore during the last State Visit to Germany, too.

look for "Sonja" or "Harald" and you'll find many beautiful pictures of the couple in front of the "Brandenburger Tor".

I think the tiara is not so bad then the necklace. She has worn it also with an other necklace with rubies, or red stones which had a nicer desgin.

I don't think the tiara is too bad. It does match great with the colour of Sonjas dress and her hair.

I'm not sure what to think about Sonja's new Tiara-hairstyle...
She used to have this "Sonja wave" ... now she pulls her hair back.
It looks quite usual... and I'm missing her stunning hairdos.
Okay, the Tiara and the dress match the German flag (nice idea)... but I think this Tiara will never be one of my favorites. I just don't like it.
Sonja looks elegant anyway.. she can wear whatever she wants (except of the yellow nightmare).
I think she looks pretty: her make up looks beautiful and I'm glad she returned to her original dark hair color!



Viewimages has fantastic pics (also of the Gala):
ViewImages.com
Just search for "Sonja"
