King Harald V’s Consecration, 1991

Consecration of King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway at the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim on this day in 1991, months after their accession to the Throne following the death of his father, King Olav. The service followed the example of the previous Consecration, which replaced the lavish coronation with a simpler service that used to be a part of the coronation rituals.
