Harald is 82. I don't know why it was such a big deal that he took the elevator and did not climb the stairs, imo it should be normal and not such a big deal, for years now.
I'm thinking about his health, because it seems that, in some cases, maintaing a public image/persona could be trully harmful in many ways. I would have never thought about it for a monarch (given they have all the resources in the world to be as healthy as possible) but here it is, it's happening right in front our eyes.
Regarding the whole "abdication" thing, in The Netherlands the royal family has found balance and everyone seems content with it. I wish more royal families could follow this path.

They could also do it like in Liechtenstein, where the Fürst stayed formerly head of state, but his son is doing the business.

Not sure how prepared Haakon is though.

Haakon spoke to the press: "My father has contracted a small viral infection and is on sick leave for a few days, but we hope he is healthy for Christmas"

Best wishes to King Harald for comfort and a speedy recovery. In addition to everything else, it is no fun to be  sick at Christmas.

I really like that Norway has things set up so that Harald doesn’t have to do anything but recover when he’s ill.  No work, no nothing.  Haakon can step in and Harald can just rest.

When one is in their 80s with existing health challenges, there is no 'small virus,' and I'm glad they're letting him rest.

Get well, sir.

This is also an alternative but, I get what you say about Haakon. That's why an abdication is ideal, imo, because the former monarch can help a lot the new monarch to take on the role and the duties.
