Let’s hope something similar turns up in Queen Elizabeth II’s next speech.
King Harald V of Norway has given an incredible speech on accepting LGBTI people.
In response to a large influx of refugees in recent months, the monarch decided to call for unity and inclusivity.
‘Norwegians are girls who love girls, boys who love boys, and boys and girls who love each other,’ he said.
‘Norwegians are also immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Poland, Sweden, Somalia and Syria. It is not always easy to say where we come from, to which nationality we belong. Home is where the heart is. That cannot always be placed within country borders.’
He added: ‘In other words: you are Norway. We are Norway. My biggest hope for Norway is that we will manage to take care of each other, that we can build this country further on trust, solidarity and generosity.’
