King Harald V of Norway was admitted to the University Hospital in Oslo earlier today, according to the palace.

The 83-year-old king's duties will be taken over temporarily by his son, Crown Prince Haakon, who has visited his father in the hospital.  Queen Sonja and Princess Martha Louise have also visited the king.

King Harald, who succeeded his father, King Olav V on January 17, 1991, was admitted to the hospital following breathing difficulties.    

In a statement to the press, the palace said: “The king is now being examined. COVID-19 is already excluded."
