Some time ago I watched a 20 minute video in which he gave a lecture about Global Dignity.
I was complete unfamiliar with the topic, but I watched it to the end.
In my opinion, he is an excellent orator. He speaks well, with a funny comment at appropriate times and is able to keep people's attention.

I fully agree. I had a similar experience when listening to this speech of his (maybe it's the one you're talking about?):

Thank you Iceflower. Prince Haakon certainly gets around and is very popular too. I did so love these photographs.

Haakon and Marius spend weekend together

CP Haakon together with Marius went on a hiking tour to Lauvnåstind on saturday.
On friday they chose 'Tindevegen' which is a 32 km long toll road between Årdal and Turtagrø, and is regarded as a shortcut through the Jotunheimen. Deputy Leader of the Tindevegen, Anders Fortun, says it's the road with the most beautiful panorama in Jotunheimen. The road runs through the beautiful peaks of the mountains and has many great viewpoints.
Today they're heading back to Oslo.

Some more information:
At the weekend was the annual High Camp Turtagrø, a touring festival for keen skiers. So they obviously went on skiing tours, not hiking. They slept in tents like everybody else.
