11 DECEMBER 2008 Motown queen Diana Ross rubbed shoulders with Norwegian royalty on Wednesday as she stepped out in Oslo for a special gala event held in honour of this year's Nobel Peace prize winner.
The singer, who was in town to give a special performance in honour of former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari, was accompanied by her two sons - Ross Arne, 21, and 20-year-old Evan - from her marriage to late Norwegian mountaineer Arne Naess Jr.
This year's post prize ceremony banquet – part of a week of events to mark the annual presentation - was hosted by The Prestige co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Michael Caine. Among the evening's guests were Queen Sonja and King Harold V of Norway.
Meanwhile their Swedish counterparts, King Carl Gustaf and his wife Queen Silva, were attending a parallel ceremony and banquet for other Nobel prize winners in neighbouring Sweden.
