The mood was good when Queen Elizabeth invited Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) and other NATO leaders to a reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

For Solberg it was the first time she was at Buckingham Palace, she said in advance she was looking forward to.

The Queen had invited the Heads of State and Government from all NATO countries to hold the Alliance Summit in London.

Inside the castle, Angela Merkel gathered all the female heads of state and government to greet the Queen together. A meeting which, judging by the pictures, was very enjoyable.

Later on Tuesday night, Solberg and the other heads of state and government were invited to 10 Downing Street by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Earlier in the day, Solberg met Prince Charles, and the two discussed environmental, climate and sustainability issues.

– It was a nice meeting. He works a lot with these things, in the way a royal can do. He has a great commitment to the climate issue through his various foundations, and it was interesting to hear what he is doing. And he thought it was interesting to hear what Norway is doing, Solberg said.

Prince Charles also got one of the famous footballs that Solberg awards when she is out in the world talking about sustainability goals.
