Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Rafael Correa Delgado, President of the Republic of Ecuador.
HE Rafael Correa Delgado
President of the Republic of Ecuador
I was saddened when hearing about the severe earthquake that struck Ecuador on Saturday last week, resulting in the tragic loss of so many lives and causing such widespread damage.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I send you my condolences, and ask you to convey my deepest sympathies to those bereaved and to others afflicted by this tragic natural 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.
