My latest article: Obituary of Countess Ruth

In Aftenposten today you may read my obituary of Countess Ruth of Rosenborg - click on the image to enlarge. As it is printed in a Norwegian newspaper it naturally stresses her close ties to the Norwegian royal family.
Oddly enough no other Norwegian media have so far mentioned her passing. In Denmark Peter Thygesen had a short obituary in Politiken on Tuesday, while Berlingske Tidende and Jyllands-Posten used extracts from the obituary issued by the news agency Ritzau.
I have in the meantime learnt that Countess Ruth died peacefully in a nursing home in Hellerup, where she had spent the last week of her life after having been in and out of hospital during the past six months.
