Danish State Visit to Norway, 1992

King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway hosted Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik of Denmark on their State Visit to Norway on this day in 1992, which was the first incoming State Visit of King Harald’s Reign, exactly a year after the Norwegian State Visit to Denmark.

The highlight of the State Visit was the spectacular State Banquet hosted by King Harald (in the Order of the Elephant) and Queen Sonja (wearing Queen Maud’s Pearl Tiara) in honour of Queen Margrethe (wearing the Pearl Poiré Tiara) and Prince Henrik (in the Order of St. Olav) at the Royal Palace of Oslo, at which both the King and Queen gave Speeches.

There was also another Banquet, possibly a Return Banquet hosted by Queen Margrethe (wearing the Floral Aigrette Tiara and her Antique Diamond Parure) and Prince Henrik in honour of King Harald and Queen Sonja (wearing the Norwegian Emerald Parure) on the Royal Yacht Dannebrog.
