Condolences from His Majesty the King to His Majesty The King of the Netherlands and His Majesty The King of Malaysia.
I was deeply saddened by hearing about the tragic loss of so many lives on Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 that departed from Amsterdam on Thursday July 17th en route for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I am sending you my condolences and ask you to convey my condolences and deepest sympathy to those bereaved or otherwise afflicted by this terrible disaster.
“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.
