King Harald and Queen Sonja set off Monday on a state visit to Switzerland. Norway has a lot in common with the land-locked country in the heart of Europe.
High prices, a refusal to join the European Union and a passion for skiing are just some of the traits shared by Switzerland and Norway. And the man who was the Norwegian royal couple's closest adviser is now Norway's ambassador to the home of the Matterhorn.

Norwegian press is reporting that they are not travelling SAS as planned because there is a possible strike on the way amongst the cabine personell (always in time for vacation:rolleyes: ) so the forreign ministry has chartered a Sterling plane to be sure the royal couple and entourage will be on time during the visit
