    Oh that’s too bad that you didn’t bump into His Majesty- I’m sure he’d be happy to pose for you and your Nokia. :)

    Very interesting post, I must admit that I knew very little about him.

    Wonderful ! You only forgot a very important thing to me ! when your king married a commoner, Sonja Haraldsen, in 1968 and we girls were sooooo disappointed that he didn’t choose us ! and what a mess this event had created in Norway because she was not nobel ! I remember very well all this. First I wanted to marry King Baudouin of Belgium, before he entered into a convent, but then he found his Fabiola. Since then I married a commun Italian and feel very well ! Even without crown.

    What an accomplished King! And he does show the “All For Norway” attitude through his sport!
