Photographer's Note

Here's a proud member of Hans Majestet Kongens Garde (HMKG), the guard of the Norwegian king. The HMKG is employed for guarding the royal residences (Slottet and Skaugum gŚrd) and Akerhus festning, as well as its own quarter (Huseby). This photo was taken at Akershus festning (Akerhus fortress), one of the most significant fortress in the Norwegian history. Itís not clear to me if these fancily dressed guys are there only for the show or also have a real police role; likely both, but they probably donít have to intervene very often.
