Condolences from His Majesty King Harald of Norway to the President of Nepal, His Excellency Mr. Ram Baran Yadav.
HE Mr Ram Baran Yadav
President of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal
Office of the President
I was deeply saddened by the news about the terrible earthquake, which struck your country on Saturday 24th April, resulting in the tragic loss of so many lives and causing such widespread damage.
On behalf of the Norwegian people and myself I send you my condolences, and ask you to convey my deepest sympathies to those bereaved and to those otherwise afflicted by this 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.
