HM The King's Guard won't be downgraded after all

Last week I passed on Views and News from Norway's article King's Guards to lose some status, by which we were told that HM The King's Guard from 2011 was to be downgraded to a purely ceremonial unit.

Fortunately the military leadership has changed its mind, cf. Aftenposten and Views and News from Norway today, which means "business as usual" also next year. The guards will have both infantry training and field exercises in addition to parade and ceremonial duties.
