Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to the President of the Hellenic Republic, His Excellency Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
HE Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos
President of the Hellenic Republic
I am saddened by the news about the terrible forest fires that have struck the Attica region of your country, causing the loss of so many lives and people missing, many injuries and so much destruction.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I am sending you my condolences and deepest sympathy in this trying time for your people and country, and ask you to convey my condolences and sympathy to those bereaved, the injured and to those otherwise affected by this terrible 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.
