Only one from her birthday, taken papprazzi style at Maagerø, appeard in a magazine, there is not much interest in what she does in her vacation unless she is with her grandchildren. Usually she prefers to be in Norway in the vacation, to walk in the mountains, noone disturbs her then, and she can relaxe in peace.

But it is curious how well the whole family has hidden so far in the vacation, maybe the gossip magazines will have something tomorrow, but its not the Queen the concentrate their forces on. I expect the Crown Prince Family might go to Mallorca to visit Kyril and Rosario, like they have the last years, and then surly there will be pictures (it beats me why someone would want to spend their vacation on THE most camera crowded Island though) The Queen has gone to Mallorca sometimes as well to see the King sail, atleast she did in 2004, when she was on the boat with Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia.

The last years we have gotten pictures of Märtha and family at the festival at Hankø arranged by Ari Behn and his friend, but they are not having it this year, so no pictures of them either.

Well the press found one Norwegian royal on vacation (probably not the one at the top of their wish list though), it seems the King is not in Spain but in Nothern Norway fishing Salmon in the Alta river with 3 friends. According to the article they have been lucky with the fishing and theKing got the biggest, a salmon weighing 11 kilo. Now however he is heading for Mallorca and the Bretling regatta where he will for the first time take part with his new Yacht

Article from VG - mostly quoting an article from Dagbladet

King Harald to celebrate Pakistan's national day

(VG Nett) For the first time, King Harald will celebrate Pakistan's national day with Norwegian-Pakistanis in Oslo
by MONA BRISTØL

"When I opened the letter and saw that King Harald accepted our invitation, I got tears in my eyes," says Høyre (Right)- politician Aamir J. Sheik to Dagbladet.no.

"It is a very strong signal, and it says something about cultures meeting, and not isolate themselves from each other. King Harald shows that he's the king of all fo Norway," says Sheik to the internet newspaper.

The Palace information manager, Astrid Versto, confirms the participation of the King.

"It is correct that the King will be there, and that it is the first time he attends such a minority's celebration of their national day," says Versto

The Pakistani society will, during the celebration of Pakistan's independence, August 14., award the King the Bridgebuilder price. Sheik will, at the moment, not tell Dagbladet.no, why the King has been chosen to be Bridgebuilder of the year.

The award has earlier been awarded well-known persons, such as Kåre Willoch (Norwegian PM) Morten Harket (of A-ha), Wenche Foss (Grand old lady of Norwegian theatre & film) and Kjell Magne Bondevik (Norwegian PM).

I dont really know where to post it so I put it here since King Harald is the head of the Guard. Today the Kings Guard got a new boss, and for the first time in its 150 year history it is a woman, Lieutenant Colonel Ingrid Gjerde.

August 21st the building who holds the ministry of finance was 100 years, Queen Sonja was given a tour of the building who represent how the european Art Nouveu met the Norwegian "dragon style" Today its only the ministry of finance that has their officies in this building. The Queen was met by the very first Norwegian minster of finace who is a woman, Kristin Halvorsen, she is also an outspoken republican so I doubt the Queen was expecting a courtesy

11.30 The King opens the 119th Autumn art exhibition - The house of the artists - Oslo
I suspect the Queen must be on vacation, this is such typicall engagment for her, also she has no engagmenets for almost two weeks. I think she usually goes to France or Switzerland every autumn. The King is pictured with Minister of cutlure, Trond Giske, he is also a close personal friend of Märtha and Ari, and godfather of Maud Angelica

The Norwegian Royal Court today announced the plans for the King and Queen's 70th birthdays in 2007 via a press release.

King Harald's birthday on 21 February 2007 will be started with a church service in the Trefoldighetskirken in Oslo. Later that day there will be some kind of arrangement in Palace Park, and the day will be concluded with a dinner at Akershus castle.

The Nordic heads of states and guests from the Royal Houses of Europe are invited to Olso from 23-25 February. A ball will be held at the Royal Palace on 24 February.

On Queen Sonja's 70th birthday on 4th of July, royal guests are invited to a trip with the royal yacht Norge. It will start in Stavanger and end in Vestfold, with stops in Lindesnes and Arendal.

Oh, I'm so going home to Stavanger next summer

It's interesting that they have these gatherings of royals and take them out to experience Norway in this manner, I think.

On the Kings birthday there will be a concert in the park surrounding the palace, that sound like it might be a cold experience considering his birthday is in the middle of the winter Probably this concert will be open to the public. In the evening the goverment gives a gala dinner at Akershus

According to se og hør, Margrethe, Silvia and Carl Gustav will come to Norway both in Febuary and July, (But Im not sure how confirmed that is)

The Norwegian and Danish royal yacht will be used on the trip from Stavanger to Lindesnes which is the most southern point of the mainland and then to Arendal before it will end with a party at the royal summerhouse Maagerø, this is during the summervacation in the scandinavian countries so hopefully many of them will be able to come.

Last time there has been such cruise they visited the west coast but it seems now they have conisdered the guest have gotten 10 years older and with various knee and leg trouble they are visitng flatter places but still very, very beautiful
