King Olav remembered

King Olav V of Norway's life will be the subject of a major exhibition at the palace. Open Palace 2003 is completely dedicated to the 100th anniversary of King Olav's birth. Olav's son King Harald officially opens the exhibition on Saturday.

The English-born Olav's cradle, christening robe and school desk will be among the objects on display at the special palace celebration, alongside toys and memorabilia from his youth in Norway.

The exhibition will also commemorate King Olav's life as a sportsman, family father and soldier and will run until August 17. The 100th anniversary of the birth of King Olav V is July 2.

:flower: It is always nice to see those very old pictures.

But what do you mean by saying Olav was English-born? His mother was English, I know that, but his father was Dane. And so as far as I know, Olav was by birth a prince of Denmark. Or am I totally on false tracks? :blink:
