The King and Queen in Sandnes: Så vidt de fikk blomstene

The kids with flowers became self-conscious when the royals arrived, and didn't want to hand over their flowers. Sonja managed to talk them more calm, and eventually got her flowers. The kids' comments afterwards: "I thought the King had such a nice face. I wanted to give the flowers to him."
