Crown Prince Haakon opens centre for job creation

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon of Norway opened “Kubatoren” today in the west Norwegian city of Haugesund. This will be a meeting place for Norwegian entrepreneurs and a centre for creating new jobs in a region that is heavily influenced by the decline of the oil industry.

Haugesund has long worked to put in place a creative environment in the city. Today they opened “Kubatoren” and the Crown Prince was the first one to take a look at the building. There are opportunities in several buildings and floors. Many local companies in the Haugesund municipality have worked hard to get it up and running in the recent months. Now they hope more businesses and more jobs to turn up, but they also believe this will help to create a more vibrant city centre. Not only the Crown Prince but also entrepreneurs from around the western part of Norway were invited to the opening.

Not only the Crown Prince but also entrepreneurs from around the western part of Norway were invited to the opening. The first stop on today’s tour was a prototype workshop. Here the entrepreneurs can work to create prototypes with advanced tools, everything from a 3D printer to a laser cutter.

I am glad that Crown Princess Mette-Marit visited the Monsters Inc. I think it is a great company that offers opportunities to people who have difficulties with getting a regular job due to their criminal background or other unfortunate past events. It would be a good job for people who know how to build or fix houses and other buildings. I wish there were more companies like this.

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway visited Monsters Inc. yesterday. This is a company that hires people, who for various reasons, have difficulty getting a job in ordinary society. This may be former criminals, former addicts or people who for various reasons have not been at work for some time. Monsters Inc. is a contractor who performs various construction and demolition projects, asbestos removal, coring, heat treatment and various demolitions. Overall they have demolished more than 7500 bathrooms. Today, the company has offices in four Norwegian cities in eastern Norway and 40 employees.
Crown Princess Mette Marit visits Monsters Inc.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit visited the company in the district of Stovner in east Oslo. Here Monsters Inc. has a contract to demolish many bathrooms that will be renovated again. First, the Crown Princess was able to learn more about the business and what they do before she had the opportunity to talk to several of those who work for the company. After talking with the workers, the Crown Princess got to see one of the apartments where some workers were already in the process of tearing out a bathroom. After having been issued appropriate clothing and protective gear, Mette-Marit was able to see how it is to tear a bathroom out herself. The Crown Princess posted a picture of the visit on her Instagram profile later the same day.

Monsters Inc. is a company that the Crown Princess has met before. In 2014, Crown PriMette-Marit Marit presented the award “This Year’s Social Entrepreneur” to the company at a ceremony in Oppland. The reason why Monsters Inc. received the award in 2014 was for their clear and robust core values. The people in this business are not monsters; they’re the opposite. The workers not only tear down, but they build up.

King Harald congratulates winners at skiing championships

This weekend, His Majesty King Harald of Norway attended the Norway championship for skiing. The ski teams ‘Varden Meråker’ and ‘Lyn’ won the gold medal for women and men on Sunday. His Majesty the King congratulated the winners when they finished. The relay for women was the day’s first contest.

King Harald arrived at the Norwegian championship for skiing on Saturday and stayed until Sunday evening. The King watched Saturday’s competitions from the Royal tribune with the President of the Norwegian skiing federation Erik Røste, County Governor Sigurd Tremoen and Mayor Willy Westhagen.Saturday night King Harald attended a dinner at Lygnasæter with several of those involved in the event.

Marit Bjørgen is perhaps one of the world’s most famous female skiing-athletes. When she won, she visited the King. The king said to Bjørgen that he was very impressed. Bjørgen said to the press that the King was in good spirits, but was worried that she was going too fast, considering that it was early in the season. Bjørgen managed to calm the King down and said that she also had gone very fast on skis before she took gold in the Olympic Games in Vancouver in 2010.

I think meeting with female entrepreneurs is a great way to celebrate Women's day. The female entrepreneurs should receive the same attention as the male ones. I believe this would help make businesses more gender equal rather than mostly male. Unfortunately throughout history, females were always subject to having less importance in the business world as men. I hope that more women entrepreneurs will change this perspective and help other women believe that they can make great accomplishments.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit meets female entrepreneurs

Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, met female entrepreneurs yesterday at Skistua in Trondheim who “supply solar lamps, highly absorbent feed sheets and other solutions to the United Nations work in crisis areas,” according to the Norwegian Royal Court.

The Crown Princess witnessed the signing, alongside Foreign Minister Børge Brende, of a new agreement between United Nations Women and Innovation Norway which aims to “ensure more such good and forward-looking solutions to strengthen women’s health and position of developing countries” in line with the UN’s sustainability goals and their global contribution, explained the Court. Before the signing, the leaders of innovative Norwegian businesses exhibited their solutions to Mette-Marit and those gathered.

Norwegian Crown Prince couple visit women’s shelter on International Women’s Day

Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway marked International Women’s Day on Wednesday, 8 March with a visit to Church City Mission prevention project Sister to Sister and a women’s shelter in Trondheim.

The Crown Prince couple began their day at Sister to Sister – a project focused on preventing violence against women in minority communities through raising awareness. The belief behind the project is that women immigrants can play an active role in disseminating information and changing attitudes within their communities and environments.

The Sister to Sister program arms volunteers with the skills needed to provide support within their networks on issues related to forced marriage, domestic violence and genital mutilation. It also gives these women the tools needed to, in turn, provide knowledge and training to their peers in their native language. The Crown Prince and Princess learned about the program’s positive results thus far, both in personal development for the volunteers and larger community impact.

Crown Prince Haakon participates in major military exercise

His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, has, the last two days, participated in the international military exercise “Joint Viking” which takes place in northern Norway. The exercise aims to strengthen the military cooperation within NATO and between the Nordic nations.

The military exercise “Joint Viking” takes place from 6 to 15 March in an area stretching from Alta to Lakselv in the far north of Norway. The exercise takes place mostly along the Norwegian coast which is difficult to transport troops on. Here, it is an especially tough climate during the winter, and there are extremely long distances to transport soldiers and military equipment. This provides excellent opportunities to train military forces to tackle demanding tasks in demanding environments. This training is held every two years; the last time, in 2015, it was also held in northern Norway.

His Royal Highness got to meet many of the Norwegian soldiers participating in the exercise. He was also shown the battlefield by Norway’s defence chief, Admiral Haakon Bruun-Hanssen.

Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette Marit served insect cake

The Crown Prince couple of Norway visited the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) at Ås, just outside the capital of Oslo, on Thursday last week. During the display of the exhibition ‘no insects – no food‘, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette Marit and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon were offered food made from crickets, flour beetles and grasshoppers.

While the Crown Princess politely refused to eat food made from crickets and grasshoppers, the Crown Prince ate a slice of cake containing flour beetles during the visit. Brownies garnished with flour beetles did however not tempt Mette-Marit, but Haakon showed courage and tasted a slice of the insect-cake. His Royal Highness tasted the cake they got a briefing about how important insects are to take care of the Earth’s biodiversity. Students explained that the insects are needed for a variety of purposes, such as food production and animal feed, but also as a future source of protein for humans.

Crown Prince Haakon visits Liberia to highlight poverty issues

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon concludes his four-day visit to Liberia today. The Crown Prince is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations and wanted with to highlight the poverty issues in Liberia this visit.  The Crown Prince has been very involved in the work of the United Nations in the last few years and has conducted numerous trips to several parts of the world to highlight the important tasks that the United Nations performs.

The Crown Prince has had an eventful visit to Liberia and has tried to meet as many as many locals as possible. The Crown Prince landed in Liberia’s capital Sunday evening and was welcomed by a large crowd. He was greeted by representatives from the government, but also by ordinary people who had survived the Civil War, the Ebola virus and other humanitarian disasters.

One of the last events His Royal Highness attended before he left Liberia was a meeting with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. In 2003, she became the first democratically elected female head of state in Africa and in 2011, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In connection with the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize, President Johnson Sirleaf was granted an audience with King Harald, and she also met Crown Prince Haakon.

King Harald of Norway is invited to a state visit to China

His Majesty King Harald and Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway have been invited to conduct a state visit to China. The visit may take place in the autumn of 2018, if it is appropriate for the Chinese government, said Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg today to reporters.

This became evident when Prime Minister Erna Solberg met with the Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing this Monday. “We are now working to find a date that suits both parties,” said Solberg, and the Norwegian Royal Court has indicated that the fall of 2018 fits in the schedule for King Harald and Queen Sonja. There are parliamentary elections in Norway in the autumn of 2017; therefore, no state visits to Norway are planned during that time. It is likely that the King and Queen will not travel on any more state visits this year to not steal attention from the upcoming elections.

King Harald delayed for two hours due to snow storm

His Majesty King Harald of Norway visited several places in southern Norway today, but the journey took an unexpected turn when the King was about to start his journey to Kristiansand earlier in the day. During the night, eastern Norway and the Norwegian interior were hit by a significant snowstorm. The snowstorm also affected His Majesty’s schedule.

It is common for the Norwegian Royal Family to travel by regular flights when they visit places in Norway. The King was expected to leave Oslo’s main airport Gardermoen on Monday morning, but slippery runways and bad visibility grounded all planes. The King’s aircraft was not allowed to go to Kristiansand Airport.

The weather did not get any better resulting in the King arriving very late. For almost two hours, His Majesty sat at the airport and waited for the weather to improve. Finally, the Armed Forces were forced to set up transportation and flew the King with a military transport plane to southern Norway, which in stark contrast to Eastern Norway today is characterised by sunshine and high temperatures.

King Harald celebrated the 100th of Lions Club International

His Majesty King Harald of Norway participated today in the 100th anniversary of the Lions Club International. King Harald is Lions Norway’s royal patron. In this regard, the King attended an event in Oslo, which was a collaboration between Lions Norway and the organisation “Young in Norway.”

His Majesty met several children with different personal backgrounds. Together, with these children, King Harald took a boat trip from Lohavn Harbour in Oslo to Bygdøy. The trip took about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The event is a part of a boat trip that will go from Oslo to Bergen to put the spotlight on children and youth which has grown up in a challenging environment; many are minor asylum seekers. These children will also take part as the crew on the boat.

For more than an hour before the King arrived at Bygdøy, the celebration had taken place. Many children attended and were served ice cream, sausages and soda by members of Lions Norway. There were also organised activities for the children.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit opens this year’s literature train

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit started her literature tour yesterday. This year, the Crown Princess went with the literature train from her home, Asker, to Kristiansand, the city the Crown Princess is originally from. The train will have many stops and will arrive in southern Norway’s largest city on Friday.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Crown Princess arranged the literature train to set the focus on literature. During the journey, the train will stop in several places. Along the way from Asker to Kristiansand, the literary train stops at Bø, Gjerstad and Vennesla. In addition, there will be an evening event in Dypvåg Church outside Tvedestrand on Thursday evening.

During the opening of the tour yesterday, the Crown Princess gave a speech. Her Royal Highness said, “It was natural for us to create a theme that is about coming home. I travel from one home to another. From Asker to Kristiansand. On the way we will meet authors who have written about this subject in different ways. And not at least, we will have to reflect on what that creates a home, where and what it is for each of us – and how it affects us as humans.”
