Thank you Larzen for the info and pictures. What a busy autumn the King and Queen will have with all those visits! Great for them and us, I'm already looking forward to seeing pictures from them.

Would you say that the official portrait is a new one? Or is it an old one that they just brought out from the archives for this particular story?

As they're wearing the same things in that photo as they're wearing in the official photos in their profiles on the webpage, which has been up for quite some time, I assume that this is a picture taken at the same time. Mostly because it's also in the same setting.

I like them in this picture, they look very relaxed.

But I kind of miss the official portrait of a very regal-looking Sonja in the yellow dress, that was released some years back (around the time when they became monarchs...?)

Royal News: Norway's King Harald V receives statue

August 10, 2005, 2:04:53 Royal News: Norway's King Harald V is set to unveil a gift to the country from Norwegian Americans.

The present - a stunning bronze statue of the late Crown Princess Märtha - will be uncovered in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, DC, next month.

The much-loved princess, who died in 1954, was married to the late King Olav of Norway and was King Harald's mother.

A funny story with a photo!

Charmer gave the Queen a wet kiss

This fellow really put an effort in when Queen Sonja herself visited. And got a kiss on the cheek.

“Ohhhh” yelled the Queen when she got the juicy kiss and straight on the cheek, writes the local newspaper Nordlys. The chosen one didn’t have two legs, but swam eagerly around the pool at Polaria in Tromsø. Perhaps the seal, Sassen, wanted to give Queen Sonja a good and warm welcome to the city. When she bent down to the seals, she was surprised by the quick seal. She straightened up quickly and stepped back, before she whiped her face with her right hand. Aquarium manager Espen Rafter says he didn’t believed the Queen would be daring enough to go near Sassen. Wether she liked the kiss or not, isn’t known.

The visit to the UK will be their second; Harald, following in his father's steps, is going to be one of the few monarchs to pay two state visits to Queen Elizabeth II.

Se, hvordan Kongen stråler

Den tunge tiden med sykdom og operasjoner er endelig forbi. Nå strutter kong Harald av energi og livsglede.




NÅ-SPREK 68-ÅRING: Fire måneder etter operasjonenener er smilet igjen på plass. Kong Harald er brun og strålende opplagt etter sommerens fartsfylte aktiviteter. Foto: ØYVIND NORDAHL NÆSS, Foto: Øyvind Nordahl Næss
VG Nett følger:
Kongehuset



Det var en spøkefull og opplagt kong Harald som møtte VG under åpningen av Mela-festivalen på Rådhusplassen i Oslo forrige helg.

Fremdeles solbrun etter sommerens fartsfylte aktiviteter boblet monarken av overskudd og livsglede.

Da VG møtte Kongen under EM i seiling utenfor Stockholm tidligere i sommer, uttrykte monarken at han var svært fornøyd med livet.

- Jeg har ikke vært i så god form som nå på en tre-fire år, sa Kongen oppriktig.

Tøffe operasjoner

I løpet av en toårsperiode har monarken vært igjennom flere tøffe operasjoner. Etter kreftoperasjonen måtte Kongen på nytt legges under kniven på Rikshospitalet i vår. Kirurgene byttet ut en av Kongens hjerteklaffer med en kunstig klaff laget av biologisk materiale.

Samtidig gjennomgikk Kongen en omfattende hjerteoperasjon, hvor en blodåre fra leggen ble flyttet til hjertet.

En drøy uke senere ble monarken hasteoperert etter at legene oppdaget en væskeansamling på baksiden av hjertet.

Kongens livlege, Halfdan Ihlen, er imponert over hvor raskt Kongen har kommet seg etter sykefraværet.



DA - ALVORLIG SYK: Kong Harald forlater Rikshospitalet i Oslo etter den omfattende hjerteoperasjonen. Monarken er tydelig preget av sin alvorlige helsetilstand. Foto: SCANPIX


- Vi er veldig fornøyd med kong Haralds innsats og innstilling. Kongen er kvitt hjertesykdommen, som i seg selv er viktig. I løpet av sommeren har monarken trent seg godt både fysisk og psykisk, sier Ihlen.

I de hektiske sommermånedene har kong Harald stått foran flere fysiske utfordringer.

Kongen har tilbrakt mye tid med barnebarna, som har vært et lyspunkt i de lange sykdomsperiodene. Den spreke monarken har også jaktet på drømmelaksen ved Altaelvens bredd, og ble europamester i seiling i IMS-klassen i juli.

Forbilde

Under åpningseilasen var monarken igjennom en 15 timers seilingsmaraton langs svenskekysten under røffe værforhold.

Ihlen tror Kongen har vært et godt forbilde for andre som har vært igjennom tunge sykdomsperioder.

- Jeg er sikker på at Kongen er en stor inspirasjonskilde for andre. Selv er jeg mektig imponert over hvordan han har håndtert situasjonen. Veien tilbake til normal tilstand har blitt til gjennom Kongens egne positive målsettinger, sier Ihlen
