Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit traveled to Kristiansund on Tuesday to hear about the experiences and challenges people have had during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The royal ship Norway arrived at the harbor at 10:00 AM and the guests were greeted by singing kindergarten children on the docks.
Then the road continued to the town hall, before the Crown Prince and Crown Princess strolled past the municipality’s test tent for Covid-19.
– “Nice that you keep up with test capacity,” said the Crown Prince after getting a little introduction to how they worked.
The program also includes meetings with school children, students, cultural actors, the mayor, the county mayor, and the police chief.
According to the official program, only the Crown Prince was to come to Kristiansund, but on docking, the Crown Princess also appeared. She will follow parts of Tuesday’s program.
On Monday, the Crown Princess shared photos from the trip to Western Norway, and her husband who posed smiling in Norwegian nature.
– “As you can see, he loves his modeling career here in Western Norway,” the Crown Princess wrote on Instagram.
The visit to Kristiansund is part of a larger trip, where the Crown Prince is to visit several places in the country to hear about the Coronavirus situation. Last week he visited Askim, Rygge, Stokke, and Flekkefjord, while Kristiansund, Florø, and Stavanger are on the program this week.
