King and Queen of Norway
The Norwegian government has asked all citizens who have been abroad to quarantine themselves for 14 days. This includes the King and Queen (and several ministers who accompanied them to Jordan), but fortunately none of them have tested positive to the virus.
The King was ┤present┤ at today's state council by vdeolink.
The Norwegian government (like the Danish) has basically shut down the country to avoid further spread of the virus. The royal family members have thus cancelled all engagements (except formal government audiences) until Easter.
That's very true.
The King and Queen of Norway quarantined themselves after their State Visit to Jordan. The King and Queen of Spain tested negative for the virus after the Queen had been in touch with a Minister who tested positive. Archduke Karl of Austria tested positive.
I suppose there really was no other alternative but it does sadden me that we won't have these celebrations to look forward to anymore.
Maybe she'll have a big 81st birthday party.
I do hope these strict measures nations are taking will help to safeguard people and hopefully limit the spread and death toll of the virus.
