The King and Queen in Sandnes: Så vidt de fikk blomstene

The kids with flowers became self-conscious when the royals arrived, and didn't want to hand over their flowers. Sonja managed to talk them more calm, and eventually got her flowers. The kids' comments afterwards: "I thought the King had such a nice face. I wanted to give the flowers to him."

The King is really busy lately. Thumb up for him!
Actually the last months the King had most engagements of all members of the Royal Family and it seems to be the same in February.
He really does a great job!
It's not surprising that he is the most popular and loved member of the NRF. ;)

It was actually mentioned somewhere, (in a connection with the popularity poll or something like that) that the King's busy-ness was a strategic move from the royal family. He's the head of the family, ergo, he'll be in the front.

I expect it also has something to do with his health - now that it is ok, he'll be doing a lot, since there has been times in the past when he has been forced to take it easy, as there will be as he grows older.

King Harald received a gift of friendship from the Pakistani state today. He wasn't present himself to receive it, but according to the Information adviser, he was very grateful.

The Pakistani temporary minister of tourism pointed out that by attending events tied to Pakistan, in Norway, (the concert of support for the earth quake in 2005, Pakistani national day in 2006) and have been declaring himself as king of all of Norway, also the newer Norwegians from other cultures. He also mentioned that King Harald is welcome to visit Pakistan any time. Kongen fikk vennskapsgave av pakistansk minister - VG Nett

Visit to Nordland 16-19 June 2008
 
The Norwegian royals try to make extended visits in the Norwegian municipalities, and this time it has come to municipalities in Nordland.

They will be out and about from the 16th to the 19th of June.

It will start in the evening of the 16th at the Petter Dass Museum and a church concert in Alstahaug Church.

It continues on the 17th with a visit to Træna municipality. Træna has over 1,000 islands, but only 4 of them are inhabited. It has 472 inhabitants. In the afternoon they'll visit Lurøy municipality.

On the 18th they'll visit Rødøy municipality and Meløy municipality.

On the 19th they'll visit Gildeskål municipality.

true... If you have a look into the official calendar you'll see that she had less public appearances this year.
It has been announced at the beginning of the year that the Royal Couple will step down a bit (due to their age) and that the year will be a more calm one (also because 2007 was such a busy year for both of them.. with 2 giant Birthday bashs :D ).

Furthermore: many of the events the King and Queen attend are "private" ones that take place behind closed doors... sadly :(.. there are so many galas and dinners we never get pictures of. ;)
(like the Dinner for the Bishops, for example... it's a big Gala Event, but there only appear 1 or 2 pictures 5 months later :lol:).

I'd love to see Sonja out and about more often...She's such a charming and funny woman...
but she deserves to have a little break.
(she did such a fantastic job when Harald had his heart problems... she worked like a Queen Regent ;)).
I wonder how her health condition is... she suffered from feet problems and had to undergo a surgery some time ago...

Edit:
I had a look what kind of bigger events the King and Queen attended this year... and actually it's more then I remembered. :lol:

The little girl in the video is adorable - she's so tiny! I love how she looks up at the King with those big eyes and then drops into a little curtsy. :angel:

Can't the Norwegian Broadcasting Authorities give the King a reader rather than him reading from the paper? Also, why is he standing? it would be better if he sat like other monarchs do.

Does anyone know if King Harald is on a visit to Washington, D.C. this week (February 7)? I was just watching the Washington Capitals hockey game and the man sitting next to the Caps' owner (and AOL founder) Ted Leonsis is a dead ringer for Harald.

Celebrities and dignitaries, especially when they're here on non-official visits, often attend sports events, so it's not totally implausible, I guess.

Thanks, Iceflower -- I hadn't seen the report of him at the speed-skating event. Too bad he's not here in Washington -- he missed a great hockey game!

Norwegian Queen Sonja studies part of the original manuscript of Knut Hamsun's novel 'Sult' - Hunger -, published in 1890 as she attended the inauguration of the 'Hamsun-year' at the National Library in Oslo, Norway, 19 February 2009. The actors portrayed scenes from Norwegian author Knut Hamsun's novel 'Sult' - Hunger -, published in 1890. 2009 marks the 150th anniversary for the birth of the Norwegian Nobel Prize Laureate. In Norway the National Library will be responsible for the official anniversary celebration, and Hamsun related events will take place from February throughout September this year.
