The Duke of Edinburgh
The Royal Family has received the news that His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh has passed away with great sorrow.
“Our thoughts are with Queen Elizabeth and the rest of her family. We also send our condolences to the British people,” said His Majesty King Harald.
His Majesty has decided that a flag will be flown at half-mast from the Palace balcony today and on the day of the funeral.
Happy Constitution Day!
At 11:30 am the Royal Family came out on the Palace Balcony, and at 12:00 noon the Norwegian national anthem sounded across the Palace Square. This was one of many high points today before the festivities concluded on board the Royal Yacht.
