Condolences from His Majesty The King to His Excellency The President of the Republic of the Philippines.
His Excellency Benigno Aquino
President of the Republic of the Philippines
I was very saddened to hear about the tragic loss of life and the destruction caused by the tropical storm Washi.
On behalf of myself and the people of Norway, I extend my condolences to you and ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to all those affected by the aftermath of this devastating storm.
“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.
