King and Queen to tour the USA next year

Aftenposten today reports that the King and Queen of Norway will make an 11-day-tour of the USA in November next year. They will begin the tour in Minneapolis on 11 November 2011, but it has not yet been settled which other states they will visit.
The tour will end in New York around 20 November, where they are expected to meet the Queen of Denmark, the King of Sweden, the President of Iceland and the President of Finland and take part in the centenary celebrations of the American-Scandinavian Foundation.
As the visit to the USA will not be a state visit, the King and Queen will not go to Washington and are therefore not expected to meet President Obama.
