King Harald’s birthday is Wednesday, and he may be celebrating abroad. It will be a private celebration, the Castle informs NTB.

// Check if user exists, if not insert banner
const checkAIdAndInsert = (turns = 1) => {
// Case: user not found, inserting banner after 750ms
if (turns > 5) {
console.log(`Inserting banner @ ${performance.now().toFixed(0)}ms.`)
anchors.forEach(anchor => {
if (anchor.classList.contains(“unresolved”)) {
anchor.innerHTML = html;
// Case: user found, staying calm
if (typeof amediaUserCache !== “undefined” && amediaUserCache?.getCurrentUser?.data?.uuid) {
console.log(`Got user. Hey! @ ${performance.now().toFixed(0)}ms.`)
// Case: user not found, trying again
else {
console.log(`Getting user info. Asked ${turns} time(s) @ ${performance.now().toFixed(0)}ms.`)
setTimeout(() => checkAIdAndInsert(turns + 1), 150);
// Run

The Royal Household could announce on Monday that the king is on a private trip abroad next week, but the trip may have started earlier. Thus, it is conceivable that he celebrates the day abroad, which he has done several times before.

At the latest on his 85th birthday in 2022, the king and the entire close family went on a winter holiday together abroad.

King Harald was born on 21 February 1937 at Skaugum and, at 87, is the oldest monarch in Europe.

But despite his age, the 87-year-old left an eventful and active year behind him, with official trips both at home and abroad.

Caught salmon of 10 kilos

The king’s aim is to visit all the country’s municipalities, and after the county trip to Nordland last summer, he is only missing 18 out of 357 municipalities. In October, he was also put on his list by Flå municipality.

In August, the king was in Mjøndalen and got to see the consequences of extreme weather Hans up close. In March, he visited the Garrison in Sør-Varanger, which guards Norway’s border with Russia.

Since his last birthday, the king has also made a big catch. On his annual fishing trip in the Altaelva last summer, he caught a salmon of over 10 kilos, could Altaposten report.

– It was a completely normal salmon of between 10 and 11 kilos, so fish – one got it. But there was little water, and it was warm in the water, said the king.

Stumbled in Denmark

In September, the royal couple attended the celebration of Swedish King Carl Gustaf’s 50 years on the throne, and in June the royal couple paid an official visit to Denmark.

The Denmark tour started a bit turbulently when King Harald tripped on the red carpet, but he took the fall with humor, something he is well known for.

– We had a reception where I demonstrated my deep admiration for Queen Margrethe – it went well, the king said afterwards.

Here in Norway, the king has welcomed both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj in December and a state visit from Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan this February.

They also celebrated Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit’s 50th birthdays in the castle’s backyard in the summer.

– Lasts a lifetime

King Harald has previously made it resoundingly clear that he will carry out his duties to “the bitter end”, and that he has no intention of abdicating.

He also repeated that in January, just over a week after Danish Queen Margrethe abdicated the throne in favor of her son, King Frederik 10.

– I maintain what I have said all along, that I have taken an oath to the Storting, and it lasts for life, the king told NTB during a visit to Pressens Hus in Oslo.

– I haven’t really made up any new thoughts about it, he said.

Almost two out of three Norwegians (64 per cent) support the king’s decision to sit for life, according to a recent poll conducted by Norstat on behalf of NRK.

For their part, around two out of ten respond that they think he should abdicate as Queen Margrethe.
