King Harald of Norway has been discharged from the hospital.

The King has returned home after several weeks in a hospital in Malaysia and the National Hospital in Norway.

His Majesty is doing well but will remain on sick leave until after Easter to recover.

He is expected to return to his duties on 8 April.

Until then, Crown Prince Haakon will continue to act as Regent.

King Harald contracted an infection while on holiday in Malaysia in February. He was hospitalised and received a temporary pacemaker due to a low heart rate.

The Norwegian military facilitated his return to Norway where he was admitted to the hospital in Oslo and later received a permanent pacemaker.
