That the Cameo Parure is still with the Royal family is indeed owed to a few strokes of luck. Queen Josefina left it, together with most of the jewels that she hadn't given to Princess Louise when she married Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, to her daughter Eugenie who to her family's horror started selling of her possessions to fund her charities. Things apparently got so serious that her brother King Oscar II intervened and asked her to leave something for the family. She agreed and ended up leaving the Cameo Parure to her favourite nephew Prince Eugen. He, who never married, apparently realised the historical significance of the parure and loaned it to his niece, Crown Princess Margareta, to whom he'd probably have willed it had she not passed away. Instead he ended up gifting it as a wedding present to her daughter-in-law and thereby ensuring that it stayed in the possession of the Royal family.

A warm welcome to the book release by:
Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde – Ett allkonstverk (Prins Eugen’s Waldemarsudde – A Total Artwork)
Tuesday, November 5, at 1 p.m. 18:00

The book's authors, museum director Karin Sidn and the museum's librarian and archivist Anna Meister give a short lecture on the Waldemarsudde artwork as well as together with photographer Yanan Li and publisher Marie Arvinius tell about the creation of the beautiful book "Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde – Ett allkonstverk."
On Eugen's Day, November 5, 2019, the book Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde – Ett allkonstverk, is published, which is a presentation of the animated place Waldemarsudde in its entire colorful spectrum. The publication is the first to be published about Waldemarsudde in both Swedish and English. With a bearing image material, the place Waldemarsudde is depicted over time and throughout all seasons, as well as the extensive business conducted here today. Fourteen knowledgeable chapters describe Waldemarsuda's exciting history, present, philosophy and prospects!
“Our new publication on the art work of Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde provides a unique opportunity for the reader to experience, in pictures and words, one of Sweden's most popular art museums and visitor destinations. Waldemarsedde's special mood and character are captured in the book in a suggestive and innovative way by photographer Yanan Li, who has been inspired by the site for several years. Our hope is that the magnificent book will contribute to a deeper knowledge of Waldemarsudde and attract more and new visits to Sweden's most beautiful art museum", says Karin Sidn, superintendent and museum director at Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde.
The book is published in collaboration with Prins Eugen’s Waldemarsudde and with the support of the following generous benefactors; HM the King, Freningen Waldemarsuddes Vnner ( The Friends of Waldemarsudde Association), The Mrta Christina and Magnus Vahlquist Foundation, Konung Gustaf VI Adolfs fond fr svensk kultur (The King Gustaf VI Adolf Fund for Swedish Culture) and The Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation.
