She never attends this. Neither did Sonja when she was Crown Princess.

It’s always The King, The Queen and The Crown Prince.

There was quite a debate about the Queen attending or not back in 1991. The King virtually insisted on her attending, which some parlamentarians were not too happy about at the time, which I find odd because it is the origin job of every female or male consort to support the head of state at events such as these. I couldn´t think of any other monarchy which would have discussed this. And Queen Maud also attended when she was not abroad and could somehow make it.
So, no, this is not just about tradition.

Probablythe Issue arrised because there was no Queen conosort forover 50 years and before that Queen Maud also rarely attended because at that time of the years she was often in the UK. So it has almost become a tradition that the onlythe King and Crown Prince attended.

There have been elections recently. Perhaps first a new government has to be formed.

It looks like a very short speech. How long does the King speak?
