The Scandinavian Airlines flight, which originated from Oslo Airport, touched down at LTAL on Friday, equipped with medical facilities.

Upon returning to Norway, King Harald V is scheduled to undergo additional treatment at Rikshospitalet, as announced in a statement on the official website by the Norwegian royal family.

Throughout his two-week vacation, the King will entrust his royal duties to the Crown Prince, as mentioned in the statement.

On Saturday, King Harald V underwent a successful cardiac pacemaker implant procedure at Sultanah Maliha Hospital due to his weakened heart rate, as confirmed by his personal physician, Dr Bjorn Bendz.
