When tge grandchildren are visiting Queen Sonja they will not be allowed to play mobile games, despite the health benefits of technological innovations.

– When they are with me there is a limit. they put away the phones. I set the law determining mobile use while with me by myself, I do not like it, said the Queen when she met the press during a state visit to Finland on Tuesday.

– “You like them yourself”, said King Harald, and was met with laughter from Queen.

Wednesday, the Norwegian delegation will visit several Finnish companies who have had success with a focus on video games.

Health and Human Services Bent Høie, attended a state visit with the royal couple, and were praised for their part in technology.

– I’ve been a little disappointed in the Minister of Health, because Pokémon Go has done more for public health this summer than I have been able to do in three years. There is much to be gained by adopting this new game, even when it comes to health, says Høie.

Several Norwegian politicians have demonstrated commitment to the popular game. In late August Liberal leader Trine Skei Grande got a bad reaction when caught on the hunt for pokemons during the open hearing of the Armed Forces Long-Term Plan in Parliament.

Also Prime Minister Erna Solberg has admitted that she is an avid monster hunter as well.
