King Haakon VII in 1955.
King Olav V in 1968.
King Harald V in 2007.
Queen Sonja in 2007.

I am really pleased that Princess Astrid's decades of service to Norway keeps on being honored.

Agree! And when you have been standing on the podium for more than 70 years (the last 20 of them battling Parkinson's disease and other ailments), then you really deserve a medal.

--------------------

Her name has not been added to the English wikipedia page (in my previous post) yet - but it's been added to the Norwegian page: Holmenkollmedaljen

Here is the explanation from Skiforeningen (Association for the Promotion of Skiing) - translated by me:
Holmenkollmedaljen 2018 - Skiforeningen
Quote:
The Holmenkollen medal is also (in exceptional cases) awarded to people who in other ways have been important representatives in promotion of skiing.

"In a very faithful and impressive manner, Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner has represented the royal family in Holmenkollen for a number of years. The Princess's commitment clearly shows that our national sport ties the whole people together, and Skiforeningen wishes to make this visible by giving her the Holmenkollen Medal," says Erik Eide (Secretary General of Skiforeningen).
--------------------

The Queen attended the official opening of the exhibition "Killi-Olsen: sculptures" in the Queen Sonja Art Stable today, March 13. The Crown Princess was also in attendance.

Where do you have that information from? And I don't fully understand your post - is it a question or is it something you've heard?

If it was a question: No, she was not attending the Holmenkollen Ski Festival events on Saturday and Sunday (10 - 11 March).

If it's something you've heard: The King and Princess Astrid will attend the Biathlon World Cup in Holmenkollen on Saturday and Sunday (17 - 18 March) - but I have not seen/heard anything about that Princess Beatrix will attend.

Has she attended before? Yes, she attended the Holmenkollen Ski Festival in 2014 as the King and Queen's guest.

Thanks for correcting my mistake. I saw her on a picture that showed with some of the other pictures - but it indeed seems to be a picture from 2014.

Yes, it must have been a picture from 2014.

Old photos can pop up below newer photos on the NTB Scanpix site (if it was there you saw it).
