Exactly as in Denmark it's with our Norwegian neighbours a nytårstradition to see the royal majesty keep talking about the year that is coming to an end.
But with king harald's sickness is the norwegians started to speculate about nytårstalen in the year may be in danger.
the King is currently bedridden with a virus, and it may mean that he shall refrain some of his royal duties, writes the Norwegian TV 2. Including nytårstalen.
While the Queen's new year speech here at home will be sent directly, choose the Norwegian royal family in the place to record it in advance.
the Recording usually being made before christmas, but on the recordings is reached to get in the house before the King's sickness, will neither Norwegian TV 2 or NRK, which are to transmit the answer.
"NRK has no comment but refers to the royal family," says the channel's head of communications, Linda Reistad.
"I can confirm that the king is ailing. In addition, I have no further information," says communications director Sven Gj. Gjeruldsen.
If the King should be prevented from speaking to the country, however, there is a solution. A solution, which was taken in use in 2003, when king Harald was on sick leave after a cancer surgery. Then joined crown prince Haakon.
"Dad's illness came quite unexpectedly and has marked us all. We now look forward to, he is healthy, and so we are looking forward to that he can resume his royal duties," said the crown prince in the speech at the time.
If it does not become king Harald, who in the years speaks to the Norwegian people the 31. december, it will not be the only one of his duties, he had to refrain.
on Wednesday, he was going to have to call in sick when there was the extraordinary collection of the Norwegian council of state, which had appointed two new ministers.Updated Date: 20 December 2019, 21:00
