Norwegian Monarchs Begin Silver Jubilee Tour

On Saturday, King Harald and Queen Sonja kicked off a ten-day tour along the Norwegian coast to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of their reign. The first day saw them visit Tromsø where the royal couple hosted an informal garden party at the castle Skansen. Queen Sonja joined in the carnival atmosphere in her repeated ivory wool beret with grommet detail.

Yesterday the couple moved on to Bodo where their Jubilee was combined with celebrations for the town’s 200th anniversary. The royal couple hosted another informal garden party where Queen Sonja wore a simple red wool beret.

The final event of the day saw Queen Sonja open the “Emperor trail”, a hiking path from Bodo up to a lookout on a nearby mountain created for this anniversary year. Ever practical, she changed into hiking gear complete with a warm red wool sports hat.

Norwegian royal garden parties certainly have a more informal dress code than others we see! King Harald and Queen Sonja’s Jubilee tour has a decidedly casual feel and the two look to be enjoying themselves immensely so far. We will follow their tour until its completion on June 29.

  1. I have to say that the grommet hat’s casual vibe matched the red trench coat and the colors contrasted nicely. It would not be my choice of hat, but it is fun and unique. Not only are the Norwegian garden parties more casual than England’s they look a lot colder, too!
