Condolences from His Majesty King Harald of Norway to Her Excellency Mrs Dilma Rousseff, President of Brazil.
HE Mrs. Dilma Rousseff
President of the Federative Republic of Brazil
Palácia do Planalto
I was deeply saddened on hearing the news about the tragic loss of so many young lives caused by the fire at a nightclub in Santa Maria in the state of Rio Grande do Soul last Sunday.
On behalf of myself and the people of Norway, I extend to you Mrs. President, and to the affected families and to the people of Brazil, my sincere condolences and my sympathy at this difficult time.
“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
