I can't imagine, how big is their authority in different decisions, Norway isn't a absolute monarchy, but the royalty aren't "marionette figures"?

The Royal Family in Norway has little real political power, but fills an important symbolic function as the Head of State and official representative of Norwegian society and industry. The monarchy also plays a crucial unifying role that becomes particularly evident in times of national crisis. This was clearly demonstrated during WWII, when King Haakon VII, who opposed the Nazi invasion of Norway in 1940, fled Norway to work against the occupation from exile in London.
Furthermore the RF represents a link to the national history and gives a sense of continuity.I believe their work contains just as many enjoyable parts (like visiting the different counties,attending lavish parties etc.) as serious,challenging meetings and discussions that require deep understanding,research and study.

Gosh, what beautiful scenery and what beautiful pictures. I love this couple and their children and it´s so great to see them together doing a tour and meeting many obsviously delighted citizens.
Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre are gorgeous. And their parents dress them so well and fitting to each occasion.
Congratulations to Norway for their Royal Family.
