King Harald V of Norway is back at work.  Due to his health, his engagements will be permanently reduced, according to the following press release.

"His Majesty the King is back at work today, Monday 22 April. In connection with the King resuming his work, some changes will be made to his program going forward.

From when the King is back at work today, he will resume his constitutional duties as head of state, conduct meetings and audiences at the Palace, as well as official visits around Norway.

However, the king will make adjustments to his program in the future, due to his age. This will entail a permanent reduction in the number and scope of activities in which the King participates. Practical arrangements will also be made in the implementation of his official activity.

His Majesty the King is happy to be back and resume his work."
