On June 18, 2013, Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden arrived in Harstad to begin their two-day official visit to northern Norway at the invitation of Their Majesties King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway. The purpose of the visit is to strengthen economic and bilateral ties between to two countries.
Anyway, today the reigning couples visited the energy company, Staoil, where they met with company officials and attended a presentation. Then they visited the Stanges School where they met with faculty and students. Soon, it was time for lunch at the Røkenes Gård. Several hours later Their Majesties attended the festival exhibition entitled, Pioneer Voices, and attended a reception on the K/S Norge.
And, that’s it. Until tomorrow. 🙂
