The organisation of the Royal Court

The Lord Chamberlain is the highest official at the Royal Court and is accountable to His Majesty the King. The Lord Chamberlain and the heads of department form the management group and assist and advise the Royal Family on matters within their various spheres of competence.

The Royal Court is comprised of four departments and two staffs: the Royal Secretariat, the Royal Household, the Department of Royal Estates and Parks, the Department of Security, the Communication Staff and the Court's Staff. In addition, three external departments are closely linked to the Royal Court. These are: His Majesty The King’s Military Staff, the Norwegian Royal Police Escort, and His Majesty The King’s Guard.
