During the Second World War, King Haakon VII and the members of the Norwegian government were frequently seen at the club. King Haakon VII, King Olav V and HM King Harald V have all been close to the club, maintaining the long tradition of association between the club and the Royal Family of Norway. It amalgamated with the Anglo-Norse Society in 1939.
