His Royal Highness The Crown Prince has sent the following message of condolence to His Majesty Tupou VI, King of Tonga, following the eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano and the subsequent tsunami.


Your Majesty

I was saddened to learn about the devastation and destruction caused by the eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano on 15 January and the subsequent tsunami.

I have fond memories of my visit to your country in 2019 – the warmth of your people, the beauty of your land. But I also recall the vulnerability of Tonga’s coastline and challenges related to extreme events.

On behalf of the Royal family and of the people of Norway, I wish to convey my deepest sympathy to Your Majesty, the rest of the Royal family and to the people of the Kingdom of Tonga at this difficult time.

Crown Prince
