Yes, I have a few from my scrapbook in my school years. I don't know who to credit as they were taken from local mags, if I remember correctly. This is one of the gala evening at the theatre (I don't have time today to load the others but will get to it soon).
As you can see, the guests included the British Queen Mother, the Swedish representatives Prince Bertil and Princess Lillian, the (then) Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg; in the row behind them is the Norwegian royal family members. Queen Margrethe also attended the banquet at Akershus Castle but I'm not sure if she was there for the duration of all the festivities.
