i am disappointed. obviously haakon knew what he was doing and the regulations ruling what takes place in his property? if not, he had an army of lawyers surely to help out. i don't buy it when royals say that they didn't know what was taking place.

If it has always been a wish of Haakon to rent part of Skaugum, I think he should have asked Asker or King Harald's permission (who could have then asked Asker) first - I'm sure that a deal could have been made if Haakon had asked. As carlota has said, he must already be aware of the rules regarding rentals of Skaugum, and for that reason I find it a little strange that he decided to rent without asking for permission.

Forgive me for asking what might seem like an obvious question, but are the properties still available for rent? I doubt it, now that the story has made it into the press.

I don't understand this issue. Theese properties belong to Haakon or not? If yes, it is his decision what he wants make with them. When not, than how could he rent other's properties?

For what I understand he did not get an operating permit from the authorities

"Missing operating permit
The background to the case is that the Crown Prince has adopted and rented dwellings in Semsveien 188 A-E without mandatory completion certificate or temporary permit.
When the matter became known in Dagbladet, admitted Crown Prince Haakon that he at that time had not applied for the necessary approvals."

now there has been an audit and Haakon had to remove some gas tanks and install smoke alarms
Asker kommune på tilsyn på Skaugum - Kronprins Haakon måtte fjerne bensinkanne fra kjelleren under leietakernes boliger - Dagbladet

"After Dagbladet two weeks ago revealed that Crown Prince Haakon has adopted five rental homes on Skagum farm in violation of the Planning and Building Act, went a representative from the municipality of Asker on supervision.
In documents Dagbladet has gained access to it emerged that the municipality during the audit requested that the gasoline that was stored in the basement under Crown Prince Haakon rent homes had to be removed."

Interestingly the issue about him renting homes out made it into the Sunday Times here in the UK, it wasn't a good read in terms of PR for the NRF, bringing up the couple's use of a luxury yacht etc.

CP Mette-Marit posted a photo of herself with CP Haakon in instagram with these words:
"Hello @syltynn I got enlisted this heartthrob here ❤️ then :) Hope you enjoy the year's most important Sunday! Thank you for taking the challenge! @rodekors #nrktvaksjonen"

Some criticism to the Crown Prince Couple for the decay and low maintenance in some building on their estate.

It seems as if the Crown Prince couple gets more bad press than good. I'm not condemning the couple, but the press appears to be lax at reporting the good work they do or charities they support. To be fair, the stories posted in recent times show that Haakon especially, isn't taking his responsibilities on the estate seriously or is amiss.

I should say I hadn't realized that Haakon had received a great deal of money from the sale of some of the buildings on the estate, millions, so the neglect of the historic buildings in question does put the Crown Couple in a bad light. It appears that they may not exercise the best of common sense and judgement at times.

It looks like the Crown Prince family's dog ran away while the family was skiing but lucky was found again after some time.

Can anyone tell me any information about the ring that CP Haakon wears in his right hand? Is this a family ring? Any significance to the monarchy or Norway?

I think it is an other trip. They were in Furuholmen in Norway with the family, when their dog ran away. It seems in Verbier was she alone or with some friends. Thanks for the pictures!

Oh dear, I'm glad to know that the family weren't injured though. I guess they spent Easter with Marius in America, then?
