Crown Prince Haakon has shared his opinion following all the public criticism he attracted because of a holiday recently which saw the Prince and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, his wife, relished their time abroad on the superyacht Mia-Elise.
Well, it actually cost two million Norwegian Krone, or around £158000 a week to rent.
On Tuesday, while speaking out for his eleven-year-old daughter Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s scout tour, Crown Prince Haakon defended all his actions and stated that he would not have done anything in a different way.
Prince Haakon reportedly stated that he has seen that there has been a whole lot of interest around this. For them, it was an invite one of their close buddies. They were visiting for a few days. There has been a lot of speculation regarding the whole thing. It was as simple as that. He added that he does not think that he has any special interests in Norway at all.
This holiday garnered a huge deal of debate in Norway because of the yacht’s great fuel consumption that some people believe is contradictory with the pair’s focus on environmental related problems. In fact, their failure to expose who paid for the luxurious trip was also met with some issues.
