Love the Queen's look. That hat is one of favourites (probably because it is a normal, pretty hat).

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.

The visit starts tonight.

I love these types of visits to the municipalities. Looking forward to this!

Thanks for the links norwegianne, and sorry for asking this naive question, but does anyone know how can someone save a picture from such kind of galleries?? Or are they not to be saved??
