I’m not being dense, I hope.... how exactly is that a conflict of interest? Taxpayer money?

- the Danish royals can use their public allowance to invest in foreign assets if this is approved by lawmakers beforehand,

it wasn't approved because no one knew about it and there's no info where - and if - they were paying taxes for it, how much they earned and who stayed there etc.

i edited the post to make it more clear.

They purchased it with taxpayer money without telling anyone and were profiting off of it without having to pay taxes on it.

They rented it out illegally? Because if they got the documentation for renting, someone would've figured it out sooner.

I'm sure they rented it to other super rich people in their social circle and no one really cared about paperwork.

Did they rent it illegally, if no one noticed for 10 years?

no one knew they bought it and the fact they rented it is the newest information. the palace refused to comment at first but released one comment in the end saying they won't be renting it anymore because of security reasons. no info yet how much it costed and if they were paying taxes. parties in parliament are fighting how to treat this.

Interesting. I don't know how it is in Denmark, but sounds like the State revenue service in my country which will hunt down people who sold handknit mittens on facebook, but ignore those who don't pay tax on their thousands and millions worth of income.
