Although Breivik called himself a royalist when interviewed by the police, he would still have attacked the royal palace, allegedly due to HRH Mette-Marit’s involvement with asylum seekers’ rights. Breivik also said he found the building ugly, according to Dagbladet.

The paper also reports Breivik had apparently planned to target Barack Obama when he collected his Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, wanting to use a car bomb, but decided that security measures were too high.

Breivik saw killing the United States President as a “symbolic action” and that his death would have caused the world to watch.

In addition to the palace and the President, the terrorist had discussed other targets during police interviews. Nonetheless, defence counsel Geir Lippestad would not reveal these.

“There were alternate targets, but it is not appropriate for me as a defender to say anything concrete about it. There were several possible targets and weapons he considered.”

Breivik has earlier said one of his main intended targets on 22nd July was former Labour (Ap) Prime Minister Gro Harelm Brundtland, but did succeed because traffic delayed his arrival at Utøya. The terrorist also believed he could kill up to 700 people. Crown Princess Mette-Marit's step-brother was killed in the attack on Utøya that claimed 69 lives.
