Condolences from His Majesty The King to the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan after the landslide in the province of Badakhshan.
His Excellency Mr. Hamid Karzai
President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
I was deeply saddened to learn about the terrible landslide in the province of Badakhshan that has caused so many deaths and such widespread destruction. On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I take this opportunity to send my condolences to you personally, and I ask you to convey my condolences to those bereaved and my sympathy to those otherwise affected and to the people of The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
“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.
