I agree. The royal family have always welcomed him, shame he could not be there . Hopefully on Sunday.

Nice that they released pictures from the private gathering

The news is full of it here in Norway, even republican journalists wants Norway to remain a monarchy as long as Harald lives and they are full of praise for this amazing King who has always been there for us, and are now more loved/popular than his father.

Norwegian television will send live from all ewents in Oslo, but it's very cold, so I don't think we will see so many people. In Norway, we are not exactly known for showing up at this kind of gathering anyway.

A beautiful and moving service. All royal ladies elegant but I think that it's Mette-Marit very chic. Congratulations to Kings for 25 years reign and look forward to the rest day.

I think the 2 empty seats were for the President of Iceland and his wife.

I think the first bench, the most prominent one, was for the monarchs, a par with King Harald and his family. That is all. Would there have been more monarchs, we would have seen a fuller bench, I guess.

Slik hylles kongeparet av det norske folk - TV2.no
Quote:
The King and Queen is hailed by the Norwegian people.

It's good to be able to say that we have the finest royal family!

There are big greeting protocols are at the castle, and additionally it flows with congratulations to the papers and the monarchy online greeting protocol.

Many people have a desire to congratulate King Harald (78) and Queen Sonja (78).

Some of the messages:

''I am moved to tears of pride when I see our King and Queen.''

''We in Norway could not have a finer King and Queen than you! We are proud of you and appreciate the work you do at home and abroad! For some ambassadors you are. In addition, you are warm, inclusive and you see us, and it means so much to us here in Norway. Thank you for an impressive job so far and good luck! It's good to be able to say that we have the finest royal family!''
This is just some of the thousands of messages and everyone (young/old/royalists/republicans) says the King is the best head of state in the world, and I agree with them, he is amazing. And he is by far the most popular head of state in the world in his own country - His approval ratings is at 90 to 93%. Everyone loves him, even republicans.

He has fought for the weak in society and here are some examples:

He fights for children/adults who is being bullied at school/work.
He fights for children/adults who experience abuse/violence.
He fights for drug addicts and many others.
He's speaking about them in his New Year's Speeches, in interviews and receives them at the palace.

The celebrations today:
As I said in my former post, we norwegians are not known for showing up at this kind of gatherings when it's so cold, but this day have been remarkable. It was amazing to see so many people when the King and Queen and other members of the royal family walked from the palace to the university hall for one and a half hours ago.

Sorry, I thought you meant that the press chose to print more of MM than of the others. But you are saying that the NRF chose to include more photos of MM than of anyone else? Regardless of their reasoning, the photos are lovely!
