Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Majesty King Charles III.
Your Majesty King Charles III,
My family and I are deeply saddened to receive the news that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Your Majesty and the members of the Royal Family.
For nearly a century, Her Majesty devoted her life to the service of the Commonwealth, following the British people through good days and bad, in times of happiness and sorrow. We send our deepest condolences to the British people on the loss of their beloved Queen.
On a personal note, I am mourning the loss of a dear relative and confidant friend.
My family and I wish Your Majesty and your family all the strength and comfort you need in this time of grief.
