Charles and Camilla have no engagements booked in on the two days. However, he has stopped going to any of the European Royal celebrations as he is a generation older than his contemporaries. (He used to attend some prior to the 2000's.) It's said, and it may be true, that Charles has become peeved because he would have to mix with younger contemporaries like Felipe, Phillipe of the Belgians etc who have become Kings and are now of a higher rank while he has gotten older and older and remains the same.

I seriously doubt Charles is "peeved" by having to meet his former peers turned regents. As if. The BRF send junior royals to most events and have done for a long time. Now, Liz is old and Phillip retired so I understand they aren't going. Charles is also busy so I can buy him not going, at least not always. There is ZERO excuse for not sending W&C though. Zero. It's pure snobbery from the BRF to think it's fine sending E&S always. 10 years ago they were a fine replacement. Now they're not even if they're probably on friendlier terms with everyone. What's Wily going to do when his grandmother passes away and later his dad? He has no attachment to the other royal families. He's a dumbass for not preparing himself. Well, him and whoever decides who's representing the BRF.

sorry Maria, but there is 100% reason for NOT sending WC. They'd be an embarrassement and abject humilation to Lizzy and BRF. Best to keep them out of limelight and send them to light and frothy events that they can grin through, flash, joke and poke fun at and look bored and then ask is it finished, can we go home now. Snare Crap

You are so right, please keep these idiots at home.  Nobody wants to see Williams miserable boat race (face) nor Kates underwear.

W&K are idiots, but the bigger problem here is that QEII routinely snubs her continental counterparts.  It's a very visible pattern that has emerged over the last few decades, and it is not okay.  Yes, W&K suck and don't know how to behave.  However, the wife of the 9th person in line to the throne is NOT a suitable person to send to celebrate the birthday of a reigning king in a neighboring country.  Supposedly the BRF are all about protocol, so that makes this even more offensive.  Yes, Sophie is friendly with these people; however, that's only because QEII has been snubbing the continental royals for a very long time.

But the continental royals don't want Kate or William  Secret. Look how the wife of the heir of the heir was treated in Lux. By sending Sophie they could be sure that they had send somebody who didn't embarrass them. So I guess everybody was happy with Sophie and preferred her to somebody who doesn't know all the other royals and asks them things like "Oh you live in a monarchy? Interesting, I thougt Britain is the only monarchy".

It's true, but royalty is all about protocol and traditions-especially the Brits.  That's why I have such an issue with their snobbery. They should simply train W&K to actually do their jobs instead of sending these very minor royals to these events-especially since the other houses would never do such a thing when they attend British events.  It just reeks of hypocrisy and snobbery, IMO.

Today Queen Sonja is 80 and today a new statue of her was unveiled in the palace park where there are already a statue of Queen Maud and Crown Princess Mærtha. The statue is made by Kristin Kokkin who made the Mærtha statue also and shows Queen Sonja sitting on a rock after a walk. Today was also the opening of queen Sonjas art galleri, which is the old stables that has been rebild into a gallery as the norwegian court has had no horses for many years.

Larzen, I don't know if you're aware of this but when clicking on your photos, a link that opened right up to hard core p*rn came up.  Shocked  Is there another way to edit those photos?  I'd hate for someone here to get in trouble at work or to see something that offends/disturbs them.
