Queen Sonja, like many of our royal ladies, was busy on International Women’s Day as well. She attended an “Empowerment-Breakfast” in Oslo, where minority women spoke about various gender equality challenges and ways to navigate through them.
On the 10th, Harald, Sonja, Haakon, the kids, and METTE-MARIT(!!!) attended the “Folkefest I Holmenkollen”, which means the “Folk Fest in Holmenkollen”. (Didn’t even need to translate that one!) Nordic sporting events commenced, including cross-country skiing, ski jumping and everything else they excel at.
