Celebration of HM King Harald's 70th birthday in Oslo
Later that day, a special event will be held in the Palace Gardens and the programme will conclude with a dinner at Akershus Castle. Due to space limitations, there will be press pools indoors.
Following the official celebration on 21 February, several events will take place 23-25 February to which the Heads of State of the other Nordic countries and members of other European Royal Houses are invited. On Saturday 24 February, a ball will be held at the Royal Palace.
Further details of the programme will be provided later.
“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.
