Norway: The King and Queen cancel attendance at Prince Philip's memorial service

The Norwegian Royal Court announced yesterday that King Harald and Queen Sonja are not going to attend the Service of Thanksgiving for Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg at Westminster Abbey, London on Tueday 29 March 2022 after all. King Harald, who tested positive for Covid-19 last Tuesday, has extended his sick leave until Thursday 31 March.

Unfortunately this means that the Norwegian Royal House will not be represented at the memorial service, even though the Crown Prince couple has no scheduled engagements for 29 March.
