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.

I feel King Harald should start cutting down on these tours in view of his health. I dont remember the last time he seemed fit and healthy.
Moreover, Crown Prince can take over these visits. It will boost up his image and also, generally people are more enthusiastic to younger royals.

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.

Today King harald attended the presentation of the Medal for Heroism, awarded for heroic rescue during the terrorist attacks 22 July 2011, Oslo Town Hall, November 26, 2012.
The Medal for Heroism was instituted in 1885 and is awarded to persons who at the risk of their own lives saved - or tried to save - others. They are available in gold and silver.

Queen Sonja gave the presentation "Impressions of Norway" at an event hosted by Innovation Norway at the Nobel Peace Centre yesterday, November 27, 2012. King Harald was present as well. The lecture is based on the Queen's own pictures and experiences of Norwegian nature.

I love Norway's impressive landscape. It's such a beautiful country. The casual picture of the Queen, wearing slippers and preparing the maps before starting the tour, is great.

Totally agree with you. Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, if not the most beautiful, IMO

Nice to see pictures of Queen Sonja doing this typical norwegian things: norwegians love their country and their nature and love to be in contact with it, so hiking a mountain is something I'm sure every norwegian does. It's nice to realise that the royal family, not just the queen, are just like every norwegian in this little details. That's one of the reasons why norwegians love their royal family so much, I think.
