COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Norway’s King Harald will receive a permanent pacemaker on Tuesday, the royal court said in a statement, after the monarch received a temporary device at a hospital in Malaysia earlier this month.

The procedure will take place mid-morning, the court said, adding that the king would remain in hospital for a few days after the procedure.
