This was then followed with a year aboard missile torpedo boats and other vessels. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley in 1999. Haakon later attended lectures at the University of Oslo and took the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' civil servant introductory course in 2001.

Activities and Connections

Crown Prince Haakon was a member of the World Economic Forum's Young Global Leaders network from 2005 until 2010. From 2010 until 2017, the Crown Prince served as a member of the Young Global Leaders Foundation Board.

He co-founded the NGO Global Dignity with John Hope Bryant, who has worked as an adviser to both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The Crown Prince is a good friend of Bill Gates, who runs one of the world's largest foundations, and who has been criticized for unreasonably influencing politicians and media people.

The Crown Prince's brother-in-law, Per Høiby, is the founder and partner of the strategic communications company First House, which is notorious for its purchases of politicians and media people. The only international organization First House is part of is the international public affairs consultancy network FIPRA. FIPRA has close links with the Bilderberg Group and they specialize in influencing political decision-making processes around the world.


His wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, met Jeffrey Epstein several times between 2011 and 2013, and she was a guest at his New York home.[1]
