Kongen har pådratt seg en infeksjon

Hans Majestet Kongen ble fredag innlagt på Rikshospitalet i Oslo på grunn av en infeksjon. Tilstanden er tilfredsstillende, og Kongen er i bedring.
The Norwegain daily VG.no writes today that the king's planned engagements on Monday have been cancelled. He was scheduled to receive in audience the Chief of the Royal Norwegian Navy, Rear Admiral Nils Andreas Stensønes, as well as representatives of the National Spiritual Council for Bahá'í in Norway. In addition he was to receive in audience Brigadier General Jan Morten Mangersnes and the chairperson of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Berit Reiss-Andersen.

According to the Royal Court the king presided in Council of State on Friday at 11 a.m., so the hospitalisation must have taken place later in the day.

  1. Fortunately it sounds like HM is making a satisfactory recovery. My father is the same age and I know even relatively minor issues can be a cause of great concern.
