100th anniversary of the Coronation
19-24 June 2006


Form June the 19-21 the King, Queen and Crown Prince Couple will make a trip in the footsteps og King Haakon, Queen Maud and Crown Prince Olav

The reason is that on June 22 it is 100 years since King Haakon and Queen Maud was crowned in Trondheim.

The trip starts with car from the Royal Palace and the first stop is Eidsvoll, the the royals will go onboard the royal train (its one carriage not a whole train) and continue to Hamar

The train will make a stop at Otta and finally at Åndlasnes where the royal family will board the Royal Yacht Norge.

The yacht will stop at Kristiansund and Austråt, and the royal family will leave the ship in Trondheim on June 21. With the exception of Austeråt all places was visited on the Coronation journey 100 years ago.

The rest of the Royal Family will arrive directly in Trondheim for the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Coronationa held in Trondheim from June 22-24

Another paper that is relevant

There will be no forreign royals, but 20 members of the extended Norwegian Royal Family is comming according to Adressa, that means also parts of the families of Princess Ragnhild and Princess Astrid

The Prime Minister and the Minister of Church and Culture will also attend, probably more ministers as well, the Presidency of Stortinget will also be represented in Trondheim

Some of the posts on the program in Trondheim is:
Memorial Service in Nidarosdomen, that is the church where Märtha Louise and Ari Behn got married, the most impressive church in Norway. After that the King will open the new visitor center next to Nidarosdomen. The opening of the new exhibition that includes the Crown Jewels, the thrones, the Coronation Cape of King Haakon in velvet and hermeline will also be part of the permanenet exhibition in the cellar under the Arch Bishops Palace which is the stone buildings next to the Cathedral is one of the most important events.

Next day which is Midsummmer there will be a concert in Nidarosdomen, there will also be concerts outside, and the Kings Guard is comming to Trondheim and will take part in the anniversary, there will also be more popular artist having concerts in the center of the town.

This starts on Monday

In the royal residence in Trondheim - Stiftsgården, there will be this summer an exhbition of gifts given to the royal family trough times. Here is a video about it, the women in the video, Maisen Bonnevie is reponsible for the exhibitons at the palace, before she was lady in waiting for Sonja and Märtha, actually she looks quite alot like Sonja and the press has mistaken her for Sonja on several occations, not so much now since she is not out on duties with the royals anylonger.

Here are some links to look for pictures and information in the various places they will be visiting:

Kongehuset has now an even more detailed program for all the visits, its minute by minute, but too much to translate and not really interesting unless you are going to be there -> aktuelt -> Kroningsjubileet -> program

From Hamar dagblad
4000 people had come to meet them for the very short visit

Pic 1 From Eidsvoll ( (the weather looks sooo drab:( )
Pic 2 and 4 From Hamar (
Pic 5 From Eidsvoll (

There are 27 people from the press following this trip, they have their own train carriage behind the royal one, and when they change to the royal yacht the press will go by buss. I suppose more press might come for the part in Trondheim, atleast local press.

UK Press from Otta.
There was a short press ocnference which one could listen to, Haakon said the children were comming to Trondheim and that they would attend an event or two. Adresseavisen reports about up to 35 member of the family so I guess that means Maud angelica and Leah Isadora is comming as well.
They were also invited to come and attend the Kristin-play at Otta sometime and they said they would try and make it
The Queen made some comments on how it must have been for King Haakon and Queen Maud to arrive in Norway and not Know anybody, and they were all very greatful for the huge turnout (hyggelig (=very nice) - usually I think Mette-Marit says Hyggelig alot but the Queen must have said it 10 times in that short interveiw)
