If I understand it right King Harald has been on a regatta in Germany today with his boat "Sira" but crashed with another boat and had therefore to give up the race.

Happy birthday Her Majesty!
Queen Sonja, who turns 74 today, celebrated her birthday already on saturday. The party was held at the royal couple's private summer resort Mågerø with closest friends and family. Obviously the CP Couple wasn't there due to their presence at the Monaco wedding. They will probably celebrate together today.

Getty has photos from the gala event, and I noticed Queen Sonja is wearing what appears to be an emerald bead necklace and earrings. Are they new? I haven't seen them before.
