Did the Crown Prince really attend? I didn't see him in any picture...

Gunnar Sønsteby's such a modest man that he tried to avoid being at the reception. His comment: "I looked through the phonebook to find someone else, but I didn't." He also said that he doesn't think of himself as a war hero, but thinks of this as a tribute to all the Norwegian resistance during the war.

He's one of the most highly decorated Norwegians, today.
