Another nice story about King Harald:

Last weekend, King Harald has been on a 3-day-tour in Engerdal together with and invited by the guys of the relay from the ski world championships in 1966.
It all started by chance: country skier from 1966, Gjermundshamn Eggen, was sitting at the table with King Harald during the Royal dinner at the National Skiing Championships last winter. Eggen says: "I talked about the unity and camaraderie in the relay team and the annual walking tour in Engerdal. It would be fun if the King would also be included."
A few weeks later came the message from the Royal Palace, that the King would take part, but it had to happen in silence. The King gave notice that he wanted to be treated equal to the relay team members during the tour. So he took his turn in the kitchen service, fried fish and rowed while Gjermundshamn collected stuffed trout nets.
"A good rower and a very pleasant and sober companion. He asked if he should pay toll on the way to Hyllsjøen. I asked him to run through, smiles Gjermundshamn."

Today, September 6, King Harald visited flood stricken areas in Kvam. They were badly affected by the floods in 2011 - there are still many of the flood victims in Kvam who couldn't move back to their houses yet.

That was one month ago:

King Harald made a trip to the Eastern parts of Svalbard from August 19-22, 2013. He has long had a desire to visit this part of the archipelago to have a closer knowledge of the environmental challenges.
King Harald went on board the MS "Northern District" on August 19 and the ship sailed along the East coast of Svalbard. Along the way the ship included stops in King Karls Land, White Island, Ross Island and Kinnvika.
kongehuset.no - Kongen besøkte Svalbard
Google Translation
The Norwegian Polar Institute wants to call a land area (an area of about 6,500 km2) of ​​Svalbard after him - Harald V Land. Naming follows a tradition of Svalbard. An area in the West of Spitsbergen was named after King Haakon VII in 1915, and Olav V Land is the name of the Eastern area on the same island.

On September 20, King Harald granted - amongst others - representatives of the Norwegian Telethon 2013 audience. King Harald is patron of the campaign, its topic is dementia.
Picture

another picture of the representatives outside the castle with the caption:
"TV campaign ambassadors Wenche, Stig Atle and Ann-Iren had a nice chat with the King, who is patron of the campaign. Stig Atle told a receptive King Harald of how it is to be diagnosed with dementia. What a great King, he concludes. Ann-Iren was a teenager when her mother had dementia and could tell the King about how important it is that the family gets support. All three stressed that transparency is incredibly important that dementia will become easier to cope with the disease."

...
article about it (the telethon is named "No time to lose"), King Harald is talking about dementia
- Da må de fortelle meg at det er på tide å legge inn årene - VG Nett om Kongehuset
Google Translation

King Harald has met people with dementia and their carers and talks about this experience.
He also said: "There is a new term I've learned: Rest Health. It's about taking care of what is left, rather than focusing on what's gone. Those with dementia can still enjoy a walk in the mountains, to get a drive, listen to music or having a conversation. Perhaps they remember nothing of it afterwards, but they have certainly enjoyed the days and hours in which something happens they thrive. I do not know what he who I met will remember of our meeting, but my impression was that while we talked, he was entirely with, at the time, and that he had enjoyed the moment."
