That would be around 45.000 square feet. Give or take a few.

I would imagen though, that thet is the area of the entire house, all floors, and not just the crownprince couple's private quarters. Where did you read that?

I dont know how much of the house will be used to representation, and how much will be private. But like with the Queen and prince consort, I asume that at least some of it will be used for representation and staff quarters.

There is substantial information on the renovation of FrederikVIII's palace at the following links.
Renovation of Frederik VIII’s Palace, Amalienborg
Palaces and Properties Agency - Renovation of Frederik VIII’s Palace, Amalienborg
The palace will be both the residence and house the administration of the Crown Prince Couple of Denmark. It will be used for official functions and is also being renovated as a suitable residence of Denmark's future King.

BT has an article about the recently renovated home of Frederik and Mary at Amalienborg.

Kom på besøg hos Frede og Mary - Royale - BT.dk

It will be open to the public from 27 February until 30 May 2010. There will also be an opportunity to see art that has been created specifically for the palace.

Considering the renovations will be complete in the northern autumn this year, I think that they might move in late this year, or early next year. It is also possible they might wait until the Palace is closed from the public again to move in.

I can't wait for the CP Family to move into Amalienborg. I really must go and see the Palace again. It's such a wonderful place.

It looks like it'll be nice when they're finished. I'm glad they're trying to save on energy

This particular story has made a number of appearances throughout Australian newspapers these past months. The Herald Sun today has an article about the renovations aswell.

It's going to look extraordinary when the restoration is complete. Simply stunning!

However, I believe these photo's have been in circulation for a few weeks now.

Wow! The Palace looks beautiful - just what you'd like a Royal Family to be able to entertain in!
Will they have to move far? - what becomes of the Palace they have been living in all this time - what will it be used for?
Just Curious,

Fredensborg is located around 40km's from Copenhagen so they don't have very far to move.

Amalienborg will become the Crown Princely family's principle residence, now and after Frederik's succession.

Chancellery House was not intended to be their official residence at any time, rather, was sought to be used whilst the Frederik VIII's Palace was placed under restoration.

It could be that Chancellery House shall remain the Crown Princely Family's personal quaters, and so serve as the their spring and autumn place of residence.
