Iceland State Visit to Norway, 1997
The Norwegian Royal Family will be hosting President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson of Iceland later today. The programme promises a glittering State Banquet at the Royal Palace of Oslo on this evening. In honour of the upcoming State Visit, we have been featuring past Icelandic State Visits to Norway. Click HERE for the 1971 State Visit, and HERE for the 1981 State Visit. Today, we are flashing back to the 1997 Icelandic State Visit made by President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, which was the last Icelandic State Visit, before today, to Norway. At the State Banquet in Akershus Castle, Queen Sonja wore Queen Josefina’s Diamond Tiara.
