Condolences from His Majesty The King to His Majesty The Emperor of Japan.
His Majesty the Emperor of Japan
The Imperial Palace
It is with deep grief that I am following the news about the terrible earthquake and tsunami which have struck your country, taking a heavy human toll and causing such widespread damage.
I wish to convey to Your Majesty on behalf of myself and the Norwegian people my heartfelt condolences and my deepest sympathy with you and with the bereaved and people in Japan otherwise afflicted by this natural disaster.
Happy Constitution Day!
The Royal Family marked Norway’s Constitution Day in both Asker and Oslo, and was present on the Palace Balcony as the whole country sang the national anthem of Norway at 13:00 pm.
Celebrating May 17th
