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.
“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.
