The public does not have access to Crown Prince Haakon’s private fortune, but now he reveals this information after receiving questions from the newspaper Dagbladet.

The newspaper interviewed the heir in connection with his this week’s opening of the annual SIKT conference. An interview that led to the Crown Prince requested Communications Manager from the Royal Palace, Marianne Hagen to provide information about his private wealth.

In a text message she informs that the Crown Prince’s fortune is at “about nine million and is invested in mutual funds in Norway and abroad, in addition there are the private properties at Skaugum, Flatholmen and Uvdal.”
The newspaper points out that there is talk about the real wealth, not taxable wealth.

The Crown Prince is not subject to taxation and therefore can not be found in the tax records.

Dagbladet has requested general manager Carl Fredrik Solli in PrivatMegleren to estimate the value of Skaugum, something he says is difficult, because the property is so special.

He estimates between 150-200 million kroner for the farm, which has been in the royal family since 1929.

Cabin plots in Nore and Uvdal were bought for 3.5 million kroner in 2007, while Flatholmen in southern Norway cost 9 million a year later.
