thank you for the extra info Royal Norway.
They are now indeed writing about Haakon and his stock in the company Yara, which he opened in 2004
Kronprins Haakon var døråpner for Yara i utlandet. Eier selv ukjente aksjer i selskapet - kultur - Dagbladet.no
Kronprins Haakon informerte ikke om aksjer - hegnar.no

"Dagbladet has also been given Yara's share register. Where is Crown Prince Haakon shareholding of 300 shares.
In 2004, Crown Prince Haakon opener for Yara during an official visit to Thailand, without it has been known that he owns shares in the company.
- This role combination is problematic. Where on one side has interests, and on the other side works to promote Norwegian interests, says Professor Karl Harald Søvig, at the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen."

I guess some are still questioning the money for the royal family.
Questions regarding the NRF using taxpayer provided monies for maintenance on the palaces also using this money for their private houses maintenance. ( I used google translate to "read" this so I might have understood it wrong)

Dagbladet is worse than Ekstra Bladet and Daily Fail combined.

The King/Queen and Haakon/Mette-Marit receives money from the state to cover all their personal expenses including repairs on their private properties.

But now it turns out that they have used the same people as the royal court uses to maintain the state's royal properties to carry out work for them on their own private properties. This is not a problem in itself, but it turns out that these people have been paid by the court for the work they have done on the royal familys private properties.

The government knew about it, and several members of the opposition have now said that they are willing to increase the money that the royal family receives from the state, so this is no biggie.

Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit put on a loved-up display | Daily Mail Online

I don't quite know where this goes, The entire RF has been in South Africa. MM was in Oslo today so this must have been last week. If this is being discussed elsewhere please move.

Thanks Lumutqueen! A controversial magazine in Norway published these photos a few days ago (I wrote a post about it in the 80th birthday thread), and I don't think they should have been published at all.

The King is a bit frail and have difficulty walking but still have around 300 official duties each year:

Maybe the mods can move this to the birthday thread.

I see nothing wrong with the photos of the king. The King is 80 years old. There are royals younger than him that have much poorer health.
At his age it is expected that he needs some assistance.

I am glad I am not the only one who thought so. Several pictures showed Haakon & MM making eye contact with the camera.
I felt like I was watching a show. Their kissing and affectionsis seemed so stage.😑

I don't understand, why do they need this show. They make it for years. For who do they want to show, that they love eachother? Since I have seen it, I think something is wrong with their love, marriage and family life... Mette-Marit is often theatrical, but why does Haakon play this with? They are the future king and queen of Norway!

An ex-employée of the norwegian royalhouse said very negative critic about the royalfamily:

There is a person associated with the royal court who wrote a letter to Dagbladet on March 11.

He criticizes royal court managers and their management of the economy. He writes about power struggle where staffers are positioning themselves to keep their jobs after Haakon becomes king etc.

The problem as I and experts sees it:

1. The king is too kind and has let the court do what they want since he came to the throne in 1991.

2. The court and its economy were changed in 2001/2002 (which has created many problems) upon the recommendation of the court managers, Parliament and the Government.

The 3 biggest problems for the intellectual and policy-interested Haakon as future monarch:

1. Taking over after the warm, folksy, down to earth and extremely popular King Harald.

2. Stay away from politics.

3. He and Mette-Marit's way at dealing with the media.

There might be a visit of the NRF to Latvia in 2018.
https://www.nccl.lv/en/news/represen...latvia-in-2018

"In honor of Latvia's centenary celebrations this year, representatives from several European royal families are expected to visit Latvia, Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics told LETA. He explained that work is currently underway to organize visits to Latvia by several royal families, including the Dutch royal couple HM King Willem Alexander and HM Queen Maxima, as well as representatives from the Luxembourg, Swedish, Norwegian and British royal families."

It's been made official: The CP Couple will do an official visit in April. I posted about it here http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...8-a-44304.html
