Christmas wishes from the King
His Majesty King Harald sends this greeting to all as the Christmas holidays begin:
To all the people of Norway
Christmas this year is once again not quite as we had foreseen. Many people are starting the holiday feeling disappointed, missing their families, and with deep concerns about what is to come.
It is my fervent hope for all of you that this Christmas season will nonetheless be a time of warmth and caring.

It is important to keep in mind all the things that each one of us can do:
Pick up the phone and call someone who wants to hear from you.
Send a message to someone who needs it.
Take a walk with someone you care about.
Each of us has the ability to make life a little brighter for those around us.
My family and I wish each and every one of you a very happy Christmas!
Happy Constitution Day!
After two years with pandemic restrictions Norway was finally able to celebrate the 17th of May in the traditional way again. This included the Royal Family who greeted 130 Oslo schools from the Palace balcony.
