Norway’s King Harald may return home from Malaysia in a few days following his hospitalization, the Norwegian royal household said.

“His majesty the king’s physician reports today that the king is improving,” it said in a statement.

The 87-year-old monarch was on a private trip to the South East Asian country when he fell ill with an infection earlier this week.
