Danish Royals to Abandon Swiss Ski-Lodge Rents Amid Criticism

The heir to the Danish throne, Crown Prince Frederik, has had to abandon an arrangement in which he was personally collecting rent on a luxury ski lodge in the Swiss alps.

The palace said the decision was made after it became public knowledge that Crown Prince Frederik owned the Swiss property, meaning the “terms for subletting are no longer the same,” according to Danish news service Ritzau.

The case has drawn criticism in Danish media and among some members of parliament, who called into question the constitutionality of the prince’s transactions. In Denmark, the royal family lives on a public allowance that can only be spent on foreign assets with the approval of lawmakers.

“This is very problematic,” said Mai Villadsen, a lawmaker from the left-wing Red Green Alliance that forms part of the government bloc. “I’m going to try to raise a question [in parliament] about how many houses the family owns,” she told the Berlingske newspaper.

So far, Denmark’s crown prince and his family have been spared the kind of scrutiny and criticism that their counterparts in Britain have faced. Intense media attention recently prompted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to announce they’re stepping back from public duties as senior members of the British royal family.

In Denmark, the special treatment that Crown Prince Frederik and his family have enjoyed has included their finances, Villadsen said. “They’re notoriously closed,” and it’s not clear that will now change, she said.

In its statement published by Ritzau, the palace said the crown prince and his wife had paid for the Swiss property with their own money. The house is in Verbier, one of the world’s most exclusive ski resorts. The BT newspaper, a tabloid, was first to report the prince’s ownership of the property.

The royal family’s annual grant, which is financed through Danish taxes, is set by parliament. Queen Margrethe II will receive 87.6 million kroner ($13 million) in 2020 and the crown prince and his family will receive 21.6 million kroner.

It isn’t their own money it comes from taxpayers. Perhaps we are seeing the beginning of transparency for the DRF. This Mai Villadsen doesn’t seem like she is going to back down.

Very telling that the only reason the DRF cares is because it got found out! Typical, isn't it?

I guess they knew that parliament wouldn't settle on them buying a charlet outside Denmark.

It's completely unnecessary anyway. There're the Danish Crownprince couple anyway and should invest their money in the country.

Makes you wonder what else is being hidden. Joachim has always been the one that got hammered on by the media and the public over a divorce no one seems to be able to get over and Fred just did what he wanted. This is what you get then, entitlement.

Sorry, I don't follow the DRF that much. Don't they release a yearly financial report like the BRF?

There is an article in "Se og Hoer" stating that renting out their properties is kind of common practice, according to them there are two apartments at Chateau de Cayx which can be rented by "staff and friends" for 7.000 DKK (approx. 1.000€) per week. Similar practice applies to the hunting lodge in Trent and Joachim and Maries summer house in France.  Thinking

January 28
Fred holds the King's Hunt in Gribskov
The horns prevailed, the mood was high, and expectations high as Crown Prince Frederik led the king's hunt on a beautiful winter morning in Gribskov.

A king hunt is a hunt that the king organizes and participates in, and as a successor to the throne, the crown prince was also a kind of king of the hunting company in the forest in northern Zealand, where there is plenty of venison during this time.

On that special day Frederik was in good company with a large number of friends of the royal house. These include Niels B. Christiansen from Lego, chamber lord and court hunter Anders Obel and landlord Peter Beier.

Before the hunt began in earnest, the Crown Prince spoke to his comrades, and he urged everyone to think of safety above all, and then a well-liked Frederick wished all good hunting luck.

- Security is imperative, it sounded earnestly in the voice of the Crown Prince.

On that special day it was also emphasized to everyone that no more than two pieces of crown game had to be laid down.

While all other heads of states are in Auschwitz he is hunting? Right. And he looks as if he is not all there so it might be the better option to send him to the forest. Very weird.  Huh?
