Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Juan Manuel Santos Calderón, President of the Republic of Colombia.
HE Mr Juan Manuel Santos Calderón
President of the Republic of Colombia,
Casa de Nariño
I was deeply saddened on hearing the news about the devastating flooding and mudslides that hit the city of Mocoa in the Putumayo province Friday last week, causing so many dead and injured and so much physical damage and destruction.
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 those otherwise afflicted by this tragic 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.
