PHOTOS: Dutch and Norwegian royal couples photographed together for first time in eight years

The royal couples posed during their latest meeting. It has been just over eight years since the Dutch royal couple, who were newly installed at the time, were last photographed with the Norwegian royals at the Royal Palace in Oslo.

Last week’s state visit from the Netherlands is the first official state visit to Norway for King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.

They were, however, on a day trip here eight years ago when they traveled around Europe as a newly installed royal couple. At the time, Jens Stoltenberg (Ap) was prime minister.

While Erna Solberg (H) was prime minister, the Dutch royal couple came to visit, among other things, when King Harald and Queen Sonja celebrated their 80th birthdays in 2017.

Crown Prince Haakon had to cancel his participation in the photoshoop due to a cold, and is therefore not present in the official photos.

See the eight-year difference below!
