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

It looks much more like the original hair-colour she had when she married into the family.

Although, at this point, I wouldn't say she's going back to her original hair colour - there's no way that someone who is about to turn 70 next year gets that hair colour if they stop dying it.

Uhm... I don't know why they portray this as news? Anybody having read Sonja's biography "Sonja - Norges Kronprinsesse" could've told them that. It's not something that's been hidden.

It seems they just need some "new" headlines to have something they can "unhide".
Maybe it's a kind of promotion for King Harald's biography..
My Norwegian knowledge is quite bad, so I don't know exactly what the article is about.. but I think the biography has been mentioned, hasn't it?

Yeah, it was about the biography, but the headline was something that has been out in the public since forever, and it is rather typical of Se & Hør to try to make news out of it. (A biography on King Harald in itself isn't as good "news" as the fact that the queen used to work in a pub when she studied in England...)
