Royal News!

According to a new poll by Norstat on behalf of NRK, 82 percent of Norwegians say they support the royal family and do not want another form of state. This is an all-time high, as polls have historically shown that 60-70 percent of the population supports the monarchy. Norway’s recent bicentennial may be a reason people are more engaged in the monarchy than usual.
