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.

Thank you for replying.

Boy,that man looked so happy to meet her!
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.

Queen Sonja inaugurated an Edvard Munch exhibition at the Centre Pompidou modern art museum
in Paris, on September 18, 2011. The show dedicated to Norvegian painter Edvard Munch (1863-
1944) will run from September 21 to January 9, 2012.

King Harald certainly looks very jolly here. Many say that he does have quite a sense of humor.

King Harald has opened the Fridtjof Nansen Exhibition at the Fram Museum at Bygdöy, outside Oslo,
October 10, 2011. It celebrates the 150th anniversary since Fridtjof Nansen was born. Nansen was
a scientist, humanitarian, explorer and diplomat and received the Nobel Peace Prize for his
humanitarian work in 1922.

Queen Sonja has her debut as an artist. There will be an exhibition in Helsingborg, Sweden, one of the largest exhibitions of graphic art ever in Scandinavia where she'll set out eight of her own prints. Queen Sonja's pictures are prints based on photographs she took during a trip to Svalbard in 2006.
The fact that the Queen has now chosen to exhibit her own art has also something to do with her desire to improve conditions for artists. The surplus goes into the fund of the Queen Sonja scholarship.
