And have they announced the State Visit of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko to Norway from 10th may to 13th May yet?Normally,if Emperor Akihito as Head of State visits Norway,so King Harald must be the main person as the Welcoming Ceremony and State Banquets too.But is the King well enough to attend?I think maybe if Prince Haakon and Queen Sonja will take part in the event for King Harald.And maybe Princess MM and Martha Louise will not be there.Maybe Princess Astrid.

Yes the Crown Prince Regnt the Queen and Mette-Marit will host the visit, hopefully Princess Astrid and Märtha Louise will attend some of the events in Oslo, hopefully atleast the gala. I dont think it is very likely than any of them will travel to Trondheim for the 2. part of the visit. The King will not take part in the visit but it is reported that he will have a private lunch/dinner with the Emperor and Empress

It was said that he would have about two months leave, wasn't it? I guess that they might want to start him out little by little as to not over-tax him.

In the official programme, Haakon is mentioned to be the Crown Prince Regent until at least the end of May. But who knows?

Several papers says the King will resume his dutis for the celebration of the centennial on June 7. First there will be a ceremony in Stortinget attended by the King, Queen and CP couple, and in the evening there is a concert which will be attended by the intired royal family that is King, Queen, Haakon and Mette-Marit, The Princesses Märtha, Astrid and Ragnhild with their familys. A couple of days later there is a visit from the swedish royal couple and there will be a full gala at the palace, also attended by AFAIK the intired Norwegian royal family and of course the swedish King and Queen.

Here are some pictures from the Queen today, First she attended a conference and then she saw the TINE relay which encourages young schoolcildren to be fysical active. Therefore the Queen decided to set a good example and she walked home to the palace accompanied by the Mayor of Oslo and the head of information Astrid Versto (woman in black with red scarf), and let the limo drive home empty.

Queen Sonja opened the exhibition "Kiss the Frog" on saturday at the nationa museum in Oslo. The frog which is part of the exhibiton ways four tons, and so when the Queen was asked if shed like to have some of the art in her home she said she did not have room for such big things, but that she would recomand the exhibition to the other members of her family. The Queen said the King was doing fine and had just been out sailing, which is a part of his program to get fit again

More pictures from Sonjas last engagement, and a meeting with a rather suprised palace gardener. The Queen complimented him on his work and said it was becomming very beautiful around the palace

Queen Sonja has been named this year's Mountain Goat by the Norwegian Tourist Association and Norwegian Mountain Festival. They say that it is great to have a royal who'll do the same hobbies as regular people, tie on her mountain boots to go walking in nature.

An article regarding this particular event;

The Queen will be ”mountain goat”

Queen Sonja will be selected "Mountain goat of the year" during the Norwegian Mountain Festival at Åndalsnes July 16th.

The organizers behind the Norwegian Mountain Festival think Queen Sonja is an example of what the festival stands for. The Queen will attend the hand out of the award Saturday July 16th. “She has a genuine interest for easy hikes in the mountains and the interest is very deep. That is why she is a fantastic ambassador for what we stand for and the fact that she comes to Åndalsnes to accept the award is a recognition of the festival” says festival manager Stein P. Aasheim to NRK.no. Earlier Vegar Ulvang (fomer accomplished cross country skier) and Børge Brende (former Minister of Environment, now Minister of Commerce and Trade).

From: www.sone2.no

Explanations: Mountain goat is an expression used to describe people who enjoy hiking in the mountains, and does so a lot.

This thread has gotten fairly long, and it is time to start afresh in a new one. Just in time for when King Harald will resume his constitutional duties on June 7th.

The new thread can be found here.

Happy posting.
