During the formal ceremony, the King placed a wreath at the national monument at the fortress. Due to the corona pandemic, the ceremony held at Akershus Fortress took place without an audience. Liberation Day in Norway is on May 8. On that day, the end of the German occupation during World War II from 1940 to 1945 is celebrated. Since 2010, Liberation Day has also been celebrated as National Veterans Day in Norway.

  2. The national dresses are called bunads :) Sonja is wearing a "Beltestakk fra Øst-Telemark" and Mette-Marit is wearing a "Hardangerbunad, Kvam". And for some extra fun, google "Brudebunad Hardanger". Then you'll see some serious traditional wedding, attire, hehe.

    1. Google Norway’s National Day ( May 17th) to find pictures of Haakon and Sverre Magnus in national costumes!

  5. I love to see the monarchs who actually experienced the war, albeit as young children, at these commemorative events. Great to see the Norwegian national outfits for the ladies and thanks for the very interesting details, Anon 12 23

  6. The King never wears bunad because he says he is the King for the whole country. On this occasion tho uniform is the right outfit.
