More information on the King's visit to Antarctica, specifically Queen Maud Land. The purpose of the visit is the 10th anniversary of the Troll Research Station, which was opened by Queen Sonja in 2005. The visit is the first time a Norwegian monarch has visited QML.

I saw on twitter that Harald is heading to Cape Town to meet with Sonja and then continue to Australia for their state visit

I guess it would be too much travel to go back to Norway. makes sense

Thanks Iceflower and Polyesco. :flowers:

Yes, Norway fought hard on 9th April and the following couple of months. And they suffered consequently.
That included the not very likable character, Quisling, usurping power in Norway. Unfortunately for him, not even the Germans bothered to take him seriously... But the Norwegians had to...

ADDED: The Norwegian soldiers fighting around Oslo, allowed time for all the Norwegian gold reserves to be shipped out of the capital. And in a race with the German forces the 49 tonnes of gold were transported up through Norway and shipped despite attacks from Luftwaffe and German u-boats to Britain.
