Coronation and the Bicentennial

108 years ago today, Their Majesties King Haakon VII and Queen Maud were crowned in Trondhjem Cathedral.

We should remember in this Constitutional bicentennial year, where “everyone” is celebrating democratic progress, that eight years ago, on the occasion of the centennial of the coronation, an opinion poll showed 20 percent in support of more powers to the King. 30 percent amongst those around thirty and younger supported more powers to the King.
