Norway’s King Harald V and Queen Sonja were among the 2,000 people invited to take part in funeral services for Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth in London on Monday. They joined around 500 other royals and heads of state and governments from all over the world.
Ceremonies began during the weekend, when the Norwegian royal couple also paid their respects on Sunday in front of the late queen’s coffin that was lying in Westminster Hall before Monday’s funeral in Westminister Abbey.
King Harald and Queen Sonja were seated in the second row of other royals, next to Spanish King Felipe and right behind the Dutch, Swedish and Danish monarchs. From there they traveled on to Windsor Castle where they were among 800 invited guests at a second ceremony in St Georges Chapel before attending a reception afterwards.
