- We thought it was time to invite you on a return visit - since we've been fortunate enough to visit many of you on your hometowns, said King Harald on his welcome address to the mayors.
- For us, the Royal Family you are valuable local guides that give us insight and understanding of life in all parts of Norway. You show us the finest you have, but also tells us about life and reality as it is. That we greatly appreciate. We are a lucky country, a fortunate people. We'll be extra thankful when this year celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Constitution.

  1. They had a prime roast section alongside a dessert station. Plus there were separate juice, coffee, tea and alcohol stations. It helps that the food was also amazing.
