Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to the President of Indonesia, His Excellency Mr Joko Widodo.
HE Mr President Joko Widodo
I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the earthquake that struck the island of Lombok on 5 August and subsequent aftershocks, causing tragic loss of life 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 these tragic events.
“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.
