Condolences from His Majesty King Harald of Norway to His Excellency Joachim Gauck, President of the Federal Republic of Germany.
H. E. Joachim Gauck
President of the Federal Republic of Germany
I was deeply shocked and saddened by the horrific event in Berlin, which has taken so many innocent lives in the midst of a festive occasion.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I extend my sincere condolences and ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to the bereaved.
“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.
