Norway’s prime minister Jens Stoltenberg was also present along with his wife Ingrid, and members of the country’s royal family - Crown Prince Haakon and his wife Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Martha Louise.

The streets of Oslo were turned into a sea of flowers by those attending the memorial march.
