Will you be paying a visit Lucien?
The photo's you've posted so far are all wonderful and a great insight into the Palace interiors.

Sorry guys but a large number of images have been removed from this and other threads because the images have been hotlinked.

Hotlinking, otherwise known as direct linking, is very poor internet etiquette. It is akin to an attack on another website by draining that site's bandwidth. It is a practice that is actively discouraged here at TRF.

The free image-hosting sites such as Photobucket, ImageShack etc are specifically designed to host hundreds of millions of photographs and should be the first choice for image-hosting when members wish to illustrate a thread with linked photographs.

Thanks for everyone's cooperation,

Warren

Dear lucien, just to clarify and for the benefit of members who may not understand the protocols involved in picture posting, the issue did not relate to ownership or copyright or to whose collection the pictures belonged. It was about hotlinking, which is expressly forbidden by the Forums' Terms of Service. Otherwise you [and everybody else] are free to post as many of your images as you like (complying with copyright law when applicable) as I know members appreciate them. I should also add that some of the photos you had posted were better than those I could find using Google picture search.

another one:



and still one more:

Love the pics,abd loved Thijs being around....until the FA there requested him to STOP posting the pics because of their size as some members there had trouble with their computers downloading them or some infantile reason...Alas..it was reason for Thijs to totally disappear out of sight....Leaving the most beautifull pics...Will copy some like you did and then put them here...




Courtesy Hans!Thank you!!

What I miss are pics of Wilhelmina's rooms to the right of the entrance hall with a view of the front lawn.It was used,for generations,for measurements of the Royal children and has their age at the time of measurement next to it ofcourse....Such fun to watch and see how things where done..not just 200 years ago,but the latest additions too untill the Palace ceased to be a Royal Palace.Pitty..Have "to sneak in" and make some myself when no-one is looking....

[QUOTE=Marengo;516854]And even more, again by Thijs on the Alexanderpalace forum:

The Louvain salon, with on the background the future King Willem II.



This is the Waterloo Hall,dubbed by Queen Juliana as the Hall of Megalomaniacs!.Not the Louvain Salon......To the end left you see the door leading to the Blue Hall...there is nothing blue there...but a lot of 1930's carpenters work...including a private stairway....and the adjacent private diningroom

In 1806 King Louis Bonaparte took possession of Palace Soestdijk.
Louis had the palace enlarged and furnished in the Empire style.
