Condolences from His Majesty The King to His Excellency President Barack Obama.
President of the United States of America
The White House
I was shocked and saddened by hearing the news about the tragic loss of so many lives at the Sandy Hook elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut; and particularly that so many of the dead are children.
I extend to you, Mr. President, to the affected families and to the people of the United States of America my sincere condolences and my sympathy at this difficult time.
Happy Constitution Day!
The Royal Family marked Norway’s Constitution Day in both Asker and Oslo, and was present on the Palace Balcony as the whole country sang the national anthem of Norway at 13:00 pm.
Celebrating May 17th
For more than 100 years, the Royal Family has greeted the Constitution Day children’s parade in Oslo from the balcony of the Royal Palace.
