The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union (EU) for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.

Since this year's award will be presented to an organisation I wonder who will be meeting King Harald V and Queen Sonja on the coming 10 December for the Nobel Ceremony and also for the Nobel concert and torchlight procession. Is it going to be Herman Van Rompuy, the President of the Council? Anyway hope to see the attendance by Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Mette Marit as well.

Well, both pictures are from June 2012 - the first picture from the Munch exhibition at the Tate Modern in London, the second from the exhibition 'Landskap og Rom' (not Munch) at the Henie Onstad Art Centre in Høvikodden.

Thank you IceFlower for this link. I do love the dramatics of this painting and what an honour to have the King and Queen present for the unveiling. Queen Sonja of course looks absolutely gorgeous in her very tailored fuchsia suit. A very good shade for her. The finishing touch is the way in which King Harald has a matching fuchsia tie. A wonderful couple indeed.
