Constitution Day

The Royal Norwegian Guard (Hans Majestet Kongens Garde)Tomorrow is Constitution Day in Norway. 6 years short of 2 centuries ago, the Constitution of the Kingdom of Norway was signed and Prince Christian Frederik proclaimed King.

It is Constitution Day, but the day sure has been hijacked by democracy.

I will be celebrating – albeit quite silently – the constitutional system established in 1814.
