Jordanian State Visit to Norway, 2000

King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway are beginning a State Visit to Jordan today, and to mark the visit, we are taking a look at King Abdullah and Queen Rania’s State Visit to Norway in 2000, which included an Official Welcome and a Return Dinner, but the highlight was undoubtedly the State Banquet hosted by King Harald (wearing the Order of Al-Hussein bin Ali) and Queen Sonja (in the Emerald Parure and the Supreme Order of the Renaissance) in honour of King Abdullah (wearing the Order of St. Olav) and Queen Rania’s (in Queen Alia’s Cartier Tiara and the Order of St. Olav) State Visit at the Royal Palace of Oslo, which was attended by members of the Norwegian Royal Family, Crown Prince Haakon (wearing the Supreme Order of the Renaissance), Princess Martha Louise (in King Olav’s Gift Tiara and Order of the Star of Jordan), and Princess Astrid (wearing the Vasa Tiara and Order of the Star of Jordan), as well as by members of the extended Jordanian Royal Family, including Princess Alia (in the Royal Norwegian Order of Merit), Princess Zein (wearing the Royal Norwegian Order of Merit), and Prince Talal (in the Royal Norwegian Order of Merit).
