King Olav 70th Birthday Celebration in 1973
Soon King Harald V. will celebrate his 70th Birthday.
I thought this would be a good time to have a look back on King Olav's 70th Birthday Celebrations in 1973.


You can see several, beautiful pictures of Olav's 70th birthday here.

Thanks for the pictures, LaMinka! :flowers:
I love the pictures of the King's birthday. It seemed to be a joyful event!
Crown Princess Sonja looked so beautiful (especially during the Gala) with her 9th month babybelly.

Here are some more pictures of the very pregnant Crown Princess Sonja during the celebrations:

I love to see the arrival of the guests. It's always gorgeous to see how the tiaras sparkle on video :wub:. Sonja's Emeralds are amazing! (This must have been her first yellow dress + Emeralds combination ever :rofl: - she looked gorgeous just a few weeks before giving birth).
Two pictures of her look:
