King Harald V of Norway is on his way home on a medical repatriation flight from Malaysia.

The statement from the Norwegian Royal House reads, “His Majesty the King will shortly be on his way to Langkawi airport for medical repatriation. Her Majesty the Queen will travel with the King. When the King arrives in Norway, he will be admitted to the National Hospital. The king will be on sick leave for two weeks. During this period, the Crown Prince will be regent and take over the King’s constitutional duties.”

King Harald was fitted with a temporary pacemaker yesterday due to a low heart rate. He had fallen ill with an infection while on vacation in Malaysia.
