The court have issued a pressconference real soon today.

Just read on tv that the Norwegian court has issued a speedy pressconference!! It said that it isn't common that the court does this, so it must be something important! And since I don't know what it is yet I post my message here :) I'll keep you posted as soon as the pressconference is on!

The king has to undergo heart surgery!

The king has to undergo heart surgery. It is not serious! He has had troubles with his heart for some time. One of his heart flaps doesn't work properly, there is a narrowness in his heart making the blood flow slower. It is not an uncommon with men in the kings age. He will be operated after easter, so that he still can participate in some of the centennial celebrations. He will be on sick leave for about two months.

From www.bt.dk (Translation summary please)

Borgmester-medalje til Sonja
Norges dronning Sonja fik en flot medaljepåskønnelse fra Washingtons borgmester, da hun besøgte »Thomson Elementary School«, hvor sjetteklasse-elever har haft travlt med et projekt om Norge i anledning af, at Norge i år har været selvstændigt kongedømme i 100 år. Dronning Sonja var mere end tilfreds med elevernes præstation og også med det minde, hun fik om besøget. cath/Foto: Reuters

Why did Queen Sonja wear a hat at the Pope's funeral while the other women (royal and otherwise) wore the lace coverings?

It sure has been a rollar coaster of a week for Queen Sonja: attending the Pope's funeral, a second surgery for her husband plus the birth of her third granddaughter.

Hm, I wonder if this exhibition will be a neutral one - and not playing on our friendly competitiveness, we wouldn't want to have a whole exhibition full of Norway and Sweden jokes (you know the ones about a Dane, a Norwegian and a Bellman )
