On Thursday, Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden participated in the celebrations of Finlandís 100th anniversary as an independent nation in Helsinki, Finland.

The Danish and Norwegian guests travelled on their royal yachts, ďNorgeĒ and ďDannebrog.Ē They are anchored up next to each other in the Helsinki harbour, which is a very rare sight. The Swedish guests arrived by plane.

During the celebrations, the royals had breakfast in Helsinki City Hall; after breakfast, all of the guests came out on the balcony and waved to those assembled below who wanted to see the royal guests. From the balcony, they could see entertainment performed by more than 100 dancers.
