King Harald of Norway was given today the keys of Lisboa, by the Mayor, António Costa. In return, the head of the Norwegian State praised the beauty of the Portuguese capital, whom he addressed as the “beautiful city of seven hills”. The King stressed “the memorable hospitality”, the historical architecture, the river, the monuments and the culture.

Beyond the cooperation on fishing and renewable energies, Harald considered that the two nations that share the ocean and its resources, will be able to cooperate in other levels.

The King also made references to the architecture, theater, literature and tourism, as points of common interest between Portugal and Norway.

Harald V concluded his speech, stressing the variety of the program for this State Visit and the cultural nature of it. The King (who visited this morning a supermarket) showed surprise for the enormous variety of fish there was sold.

The Mayor António Costa offered the kings a miniature of the statue that is placed in Terreiro do Paço and in return, he received replica of a 1740 silver piece.

The article points out that while Haakon had some issues with placing Portugal by the Mediterranean; his father knows that it is next to the Atlantic ocean, as Norway is.

It's also saying that the Duke of Bragança is invited to a party at the Norwegian embassy. “I have met the Duke before, but don’t know him. But we’re probably related if we look closely at the lines,” the King said with a smile.

About this photo from Tuesday's Gala dinner, at Ajuda:

http://img148.imagevenue.com/img.php...122_1184lo.jpg

Álvaro Marinho, his wife and the other seven elements of the olympic sailing crew were among the guests for the gala dinner that the President of the Republic, Aníbal Cavaco Silva, offered to King and Queen of Norway.

The cerimony started with the usual protocolic of presentation of the guests and with 2 speeches held by the Portuguese President and the Norwegian King.

After the speeches, the dinner was served, but this time, it was not Norwegian codfish, since this typical Portuguese plate had already been served at lunch.

Fado songs were also performed by Carmo Rebelo de Andrade and later the guests went to another room of the Palace, where the olympic athletes were able to have tea with the President, the First Lady and the King and Queen, with whom they chated about the participation in the Beijing Olympics.

King Harald is a "One Ton" World Champion and he had competed several times in the Olympico Games.

Queen's Silvia gala dresses very elegant. The last one makes her look very young and fresh!

It's Queen Sonja.

I also quite like the new dress. The flower pattern is quite refreshing. I don't really like the length of the dress.
I am just glad she didn't wear one of her old neon-colored galadresses.
