I thought Queen Sonja looked very elegant at the Nobel Peace Prize events for Aung San Suu Kyi. Thank you to all who posted pictures of the historic event.

It has leaked that King Harald and Queen Sonja (turning 75 on July 4) will have a birthday celebration on July 4 and 5. The Danish court reports in an official newsletter, that Queen Margrethe and and Prince Henrik will come to Norway in two weeks to celebrate King Harald and Queen Sonja's joint 75th birthday.
The day is celebrated in private, says Marianne Hagen, communications manager at the palace.

On Queen Sonja's 75th birthday - celebrations with royals from other scandinavian countries?
Events around three days (as 70th birthday 2007)?

The Birthday thread details that Margrethe, Henrik, CG and Silvia will be in Oslo 4-5th July. But whatever events will be private.

On Friday night at 3:55 fire alarm went off at the Royal Palace in Oslo. The building was quickly evacuated. Neither Queen Sonja, King Harald, or any other member of the royal family were present at the Palace, when the alarm went off.
The fire crews says that this was a false alarm. There were heavy rains and the fire alarm was probably triggered by some water that had penetrated into in connection with the renovation of the roof, says Gjeruldsen (assistant communications manager at the Royal Palace).

Yesterday King Harald went salmon fishing at the river Altaelva in Finnmark county.
"It has become a summer tradition and I feel very good in Altaelva", said King Harald, who has fished in Altaelva 15 or 16 times, for the first time as King in 1994.

He doesn't take the private jet, but regualar flights to get there.

ah ah, the first pics made me smile. What is the first thing you notice in it? For me it was the tie of the guy far right. Everyone is dark colours, even Queen Sonja, and then his tie has that combination of colours

Not trend setting , but indeed a nice and eye-catching idea


Today, August 28, King Harald attended the official opening of the energy fair ONS 2012 in Stavanger as well as the opening of two exhibitions at the Stavanger Art Museum: BMW ART CARS at ONS 2012 and Edvard Munch: "Gåten bak lerretet" (The riddle behind the canvas).
