Norwegian Government To Host Gala Dinner For King & Queen’s 80th Birthdays
The Norwegian government has confirmed it will be hosting a gala dinner to celebrate the 80th birthdays of King Harald V and Queen Sonja, who will both mark the milestone next year.
Taking place at Akershus Castle, the dinner is being held on May 10, in between the respective birthdays of the royal couple – the King’s birthday is February 21, while the Queen’s is July 4.
The government’s second gift to the royal couple is an interactive photo exhibition to be located in the Queen Sonja Art Hall, that has been renovated out of the former stable buildings in Dronningparken. The photos making up the exhibition will be coming from the collection of Queen Maud. It will be inaugurated on July 4 by Queen Sonja.
Further information is due to be released within the coming weeks as to other public celebrations, which are likely to have the attendance of foreign royals.Filed under Norway
