In the prison, the inmates receive training, have a normal working day and contact with other inmates. In the prison, there is also a hairdressing salon, Cup'n Cut, run by inmates. The prison also works closely with the NAV and schools to make the transition to life after imprisonment easier.

  1. That seems to be a very good prison with the opportunity of training for the inmates. Great, that Queen Sonja supports it. The photo of her and the nice young lady in the hairdressing salon is wonderful!

  2. Toujours magnifique la reine Sonja... Beaucoup de chance pour la formation de toutes ces détenues... Intéressante la sixième photo ; peut-être que la reine a pris rendez-vous avec la jeune femme en vue de la création d'une toilette Ah ah ?!!!

  4. A marvellous initiative within the prison system, a wonderful way for the inmates to turn their life around and break the cycle. The Queen is doing a excellent job supporting them by her visit. This is terrific to see, prison reform. She would have raised their spirits and hopefully influenced them to keep up the challenge. She looks sensational.

  5. Finally Pictures from The Queen visiting New York last week. I cant see much of her black outfit, but she looks nice. The black and white outfit is elegant. She is looking amazing. It is difficult to belive her age.
