Condolences from His Majesty King Harald of Norway to The Honorable Barack Obama, President of the United States of America.
President of the United States of America
The White House
I was shocked and saddened on hearing the news about the tragic shooting attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in the early hours of Sunday morning, resulting in the loss of so many innocent lives.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I extend my condolences and my sympathy to you, Mr. President, and ask you to convey my condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims, to those injured, and to the people of the United States of America 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.
