Annual report 2007

The Palace has released the annual report for 2007: http://www.kongehuset.no/c27428/binf....php?tid=71253

It's only in Norwegian, unfortunately, but even if you don't read the language, there's always the pictures to get a review of what happened in 2007, as well as the numbers in the financial parts of it.

The press announced that the Birthday Celebrations of the King and Queen cost about 5,4 million Crowns!
Which is more then1 million US$!

Given the longevity and extent of the celebrations - over several days, security, transport, dinners, and so on - twice, I wouldn't say that the amount comes as any surprise.

One factor is that this is done in Norway - one of the world's most expensive countries to live in. Another is that, according to the palace's website, they don't have a big scale dinner operation (multiple chefs/waiters) so staff for this would be hired in for big arrangements, and also factored in the total sum (unlike full-time employees who would be paid anyway whether or not an arrangement was taking place).


(It would be interesting to see an accounting from the press on what they earned on the events, in term of sales of magazines, and so on... )

A million dollars is peanuts to be spending on a multi-day event. I mean.. I helped throw a party for a few thousand people that cost three quarters of a million--and that was for only one night.
