The observant reader will of course point out that there is a considerable terrain difference between Norway and the Baltic countries!
Yeees, but there is no need to annoy the Russians too much by actually carrying out this exercise right on the Russian border and in countries with considerable Russian minorities.
Thank you for explaining, Muhler. Do you believe the attendance of the head of state and the heir to the throne is significant politically speaking?

No, not really.

It's merely to say hi to the troops and give them a pad on the shoulders for a job well done.
It's also a welcome and thank you to soldiers from other NATO countries.

It would be totally different if President Trump or the US Vice President went to the exercise. That would be a significant political signal.

Thanks iceflower!

About Zerokonferansen (The Zero Conference).

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

As for the ''Trident Juncture 2018'' military exercise:

I posted some English articles about it in this thread.

Also important to mention (since I continues to receive questions about who decides what, when it comes to royal duties) that the attendance of the King and CP was at the request of the government.

Read a bit more about royal duties in post 350.

His Royal Highness The Crown Prince met today 28 young people 18 to 25 years old. They have just landed after four weeks at sea on the first Windjammer cruise on board Christian Radich.

Thanks polyesco!

Read about (and see photos of) Christian Radich in English here (Wikipedia).

And our two other major ladies here. - The pictures in these Wikipedia articles wasn't that much to brag about (in contrast to the one above), so I added two photos: Statsraad Lehmkuhl (photo) - Sørlandet (photo)

Yes, the engagements took place in the largest village and administrative centre, Lakselv (English-Wikipedia-link) of Porsanger Municipality (English-Wikipedia-link) in Finnmark-County (English-Wikipedia-link).

First, The CP visited Bærtua kindergarten to hear about the project "Kvensk språkreir" (language-learning-method for families who want to give their children the opportunity to have a functional bilingual language in Norwegian and Kven), before he went on to Lakselv-Upper-secondary-school (''Videregående skole,'' Grades VG1-VG3, ages 16-19), where he met with pupils and teachers to hear about the public-health-project ''Ungdom i Fokus'' (''Youth in Focus'').

The visit was concluded with a meeting with entrepreneurs from Finnmark at ''Antikstore'' (a part of the Banak Camp, a family business located in a former military-camp built in the period 1945-1948. - The building is declared worthy of preservation by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage - and is a place for antiques, food, local beers and cultural events. Some photos of it in this facebook page).

I know this isn't the fashion section of the board---permit me this just one time---but is that a new tie Yay!

Back on topic!! Haakon is also scheduled to attend the conference's dinner tonight, so there will be more photos coming. Hopefully.

Thanks eya & iceflower!

Read more about The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO) here:

From their English-website (link).
(Outdated information, Almlid is now permanent Director General, not ''acting.'')

English Wikipedia article (link).
(Outdated information when it comes to the organisation's leadership.)

And here are some photos of CP Haakon arriving together with the Mayor of Oslo, Marianne Borgen, at the dinner at Oslo-Spektrum this evening, where they were greeted by NHO's President, Arvid Moss, and its Director General, Ole Erik Almlid. - If they don't show, click on them more than once:
