Queen Elizabeth II and King Harald V of Norway attended the Anglo-Norse Society Centenary Reception at the Naval and Military Club in St James’s Square in London on the 15th of November. Queen Sonja was due to attend, but pulled out because she was feeling unwell at the last moment. The Royal group was introduced to the Anglo-Norse Society Council, before viewing the Society’s Almanac, and also met members, scholars and supporters of the Society, before signing the Society’s Almanac on departure. Founded in 1918, The Anglo-Norse Society in London is a registered charity promoting understanding between Britain and Norway. King Harald and Queen Sonja were in London to attend the Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday Dinner.
