There are usually two incomming and two outgoing statevisits a year, this year might be a little different because of all the celebrations of the centennial with a lot of travelling, though mostly labeled official visits, and not statevisits. However many if the visits will be quite grand, during the Swedish visit in June the King(or CrownPrince) is supposed to host a grand ball at the palace, and it seems the visit to Queen Elizabeth will now be a statevisit, albeit I have not seen any official confirmation on that. There will also be a ball at the palace in November as well as a gala dinner at Akershus the day before. And the King and Queen will also make official visits to Sweden, Denmark and one more to Amerika, at least those were the plans before the King got sick again.

The royal court has continued to publish pictures from all the official events, even the low key ones, hopefully they will keep up this good trend

Here is Queen Sonja who presided over a medal ceremony on Monday

Kongseteren is a villa lying in Voksenkollen, near Holmenkollen, in Oslo. It was a gift to King Haakon and Queen Maud when they came to the country, and built to look like traditional Norwegian "stabbur" (Food house). It's one of the royal family's private properties.

The King and Queen lives there during most of the winter, as their predecessors also did.

King Harald discharged from hospital

King Harald left the national hospital on Thursday morning after his heart operations. The king will be staying at the royal residence at Kongsseteren during the day but will return to spend the nights in hospital for the next few days.
"I have been in decent shape for a long time and have been conscious throughout. Today I feel very good," King Harald said.

The king told the gathered press that he is in recuperative training after the two operations - one to replace a defective heart valve and the second to drain fluid from around the heart - and that he would be commuting to and from the Rikshospitalet University Hospital daily as part of the rehabilitation therapy.

The king was asked if he would now be scaling down his workload and public appearances, and said that he would try to follow the advice of his doctors.

The king's condition was described as highly satisfactory in a press release by the medical team treating him at Rikshospitalet.

Queen Sonja was today at the west coast of Norway at a food and cultural landscape arrangement called STREIF

She was interviewd on TV saying that she started to feel that there had been alot of travels for her lately, but that she thought this would only be for a short period, She had taken over the engagement at Vega on wednesday for the King but she said she was happy to do it as that was the sort of engagements she got energy from.

Queen Sonja keeps up with her impressive work scheduel. Today she was in Bergen to open an artexhbition called "Oceancountry" (Havlandet) the exhibition is about Norwegians relationship with the sea trough the last 100 years

However when she got up to give her speech, she discovered she had brought the speech she gave yesterday. She told the people present she had brought the wrong speech and everyone laughed. Then she started to improvise a new speech before someone brought her the speech she was originally supposed to give.

Now that CP Mette-Marit is pregnant and have to take it easy, The King recuperating from his surgery and Princess Märtha Louise on maternity leave, It seems that the Queen will not have any rest! She's really buissy now, but how will it be later on?! Poor lady! I hope CP Haakon really put his best effort in and that Princess Astrid really pitch in.

Indeed, KikkiB. The Royal family has been busy this year, and they seem to be diminishing in numbers. The last time, when King Harald had cancer, and Mette-Marit was pregnant with Ingrid Alexandra, Märtha Louise stepped in quite a bit.

Queen Sonja has stepped down from two arrangements. Crown Prince Haakon will be going in her stead. The reason for the decrease in the Queen's programme is, according to VG, that the Palace don't want her to get burnt out, and that she wants to spend more time with the King while he is recuperating.

The recent developments also puts May 17th celebrations in jeopardy, and it is unsure how many of the members of the Royal family will be on the balcony. It is also unsure who will travel to Sweden to give the speech, with the recent announcement of pregnancy.

4 of 5 in the royal family now is either on leave or are planning an easier schedule. The only one on more than full schedule is Crown Prince Haakon.

I think Princess Astrid also pitches in (even if it is on a smaller scale) when most of the members of the royal family is otherwise engaged (this time; recuperating, maternity leave...). Usually she leads a quiet life out of the lime light, but under the cirrcumstances she helps out. I've read somewhere that Princess Astrid did one of the Kings events when he was in surgery for his heart.
