During the state visit to South Africa last week, King Harald, who is known to be an avid watcher of football, was asked which team he would support in the upcoming World Cup. The World cup will take place in South Africa next summer, and the logical choice for the King – Norway – did not manage to qualify for it.
“That is a good question,” the King replied before he concluded that he had not yet thought about it.
The king also clarified that he would be watching the championships from home and not make another journey to South Africa.
The latter will make for easier travel time to Stockholm to the wedding of his goddaughter, Victoria, which takes place around the same time as the group matches are played.
