I found in the german Wikipedia some interesting information (strange, that the norwegian hasn't got so many information as the german Wikipedia):
Königliches Schloss Oslo
Google Fordító

And a picturegallery (the last 4 are about Budgoy):

Wow, thank so many!! I was curious about the Palace, but it is hard something to find about, especially pictures, I found only the well-known representationsrooms. It can be strange to live in the same place where you work...

During the last 5 months the Palace Square was renovated. They started working in May this year and the Square was re-opened on October 24, 2013.

More about the work that has been done: kongehuset.no - Slottsplassen åpen igjen

Are the trees a new addition to the Palace landscape?

The crown prince's audience room, also called the Arcade Room,
was formerly used as a chamber separee where party guests could withdraw for conversation and rest.
The Bird Room is the antechamber to the King's audience room.
The Bird Room is surrounded by a scene of Norwegian mountains and valleys painted by Johannes Flintae.
The Mirror Hall takes its name from the mirrors in the door panels.
In the Mirror Hall is where Queen Maud's piano is located.

This article has many great pictures of the Royal Palace and also wonderful description of some interesting details. As I understand it's from the book "Kongens Hus" in which the Queen describes it herself.

When I was in Oslo in the spring this year, I happened to see the guard change. It was very nice. They're so close to the people, unlike Buckingham palace.

The annual summer tours of the Royal Palace started up this weekend:

Royal House article: Summer tours of the Royal Palace - The Royal House of Norway
Quote:
The summer tours of the Royal Palace started up this weekend, and today there was a guided tour for the media. A special exhibition is mounted every year, and is part of the tour. This year, the exhibition is dedicated to King Carl Johan, who launched the building of the palace, and laid the cornerstone under what was to become the Palace Chapel on 1 October 1825.
Royal Central article: Exhibition about King Karl Johan opened at the Royal Palace in Oslo – Royal Central
Quote:
Those who will visit Oslo this summer and are interested in royal history have a lot to look forward to. Not only is there a new exhibition in Queen Sonja Art Stable, but there is also a new exhibition in the Royal Palace that you can visit. Every summer the Norwegian Royal Family opens the Royal Palace for visitors who can visit the main rooms of the palace.

Every year there is also a new exhibition that characterises the rooms that are open. This year it is an important anniversary both for Norway and Sweden. It has been 200 years since Karl Johan became King of Norway and Sweden. This marked the establishment of the royal dynasty Bernadotte, which still rules in Sweden today.
As I've written in other threads, I will actually visit the exhibition in Queen Sonja Art Stable later this week, but I'm also planning to visit the palace on the same day (bought tickets and everything).

--------------------

In other news: According to Royal experts Kjell Arne Totland & Oskar Aanmoen, the Norwegian State Flag flies over the Royal Palace. That means that neither the King or the Crown Prince is in the country.

Kjell Arne Totland - twitter message with photo

Oskar Aanmoen - twitter message with photo

In Norway, the Royal Standard is flown over the Royal Palace whenever the King is in Norway or Norwegian territories, with the exception for when he is in residence at Stiftsgården in Trondheim or is on board the Royal Yacht (and in Norwegian waters) neither the Royal Standard nor any other flag is flown over the Palace. - The reason for this is that on these occasions the Royal Standard is hoisted either at Stiftsgården or on the Royal Yacht and the Royal Standard is never flown in two places at once.

When the King is abroad, the Crown Prince is Regent. On such occasions the Standard of the Crown Prince is flown over the Palace. If both are abroad, then the Norwegian State Flag is flown above the Palace. The Norwegian State Flag resembles the Norwegian National flag, but is swallow-tailed and has a third tail (the ''tongue'') between the two other tails.

Read more about it here: Flags at the Royal Palace - The Royal House of Norway

But what is flown over the other Royal Residences when the King and other members of the Norwegian Royal House is there? Well, there are no information about it in the English Royal House article above, so let's translate from the Norwegian version: Flagging fra Slottet - kongehuset.no - translation

The Royal Yacht: As mentioned above, the Royal Standard is flown on the yacht when the King is on board, but it's also flown if the Queen is on board without the King.
If the Crown Prince is on board, the yacht will carry the CP Standard - provided that the King is not on board.

Stiftsgården: As mentioned above, the Royal Standard is flown there when the King is in residence.
If the Crown Prince is there, then the CP Standard is flown - again, provided that the King is not in residence.
When other members of the Royal House (including the Queen) is in residence, the Norwegian State Flag is flown. - It's also flown on official flag days.

Bygdø Kongsgård: When the King or other members of the Royal House is in residence, the Norwegian State Flag is flown. - It's also flown on official flag days.

Skaugum, Oscarshall and Gamlehaugen: The Norwegian State Flag is flown when the King or other members of the Royal House is in residence. - It's also flown on official flag days.

Kongsseteren: The Norwegian National Flag is flown every Sunday and on official flag days - in accordance with the flag rules. When the King or other members of the Royal House is in residence, a Norwegian pennant is flown.

Mågerø and Prinsehytta: The Norwegian National Flag is flown every Sunday and on official flag days - in accordance with the flag rules. When the King or other members of the Royal House is in residence, the Norwegian National Flag or a Norwegian pennant is flown.

Ledaal: No information.

BTW: I have no information about what is flown if the non-royal house Princesses Märtha & Astrid is in residence on these estates, but probably just a Norwegian pennant, or nothing at all.
