Thank you for the videos of the palace, the blue bedroom, I like my bedroom so much more, that room is cold and uncomfortable looking, imagine waking up and having dozens of people looking at you, yikes, close the curtains and everyone leave now I say...I need to get dressed and have my coffee on the double....

Beautiful shot of, I assume, the private wing and garden of Drottningholm Castle

But could someone tell me what the square glass-looking thing in the private garden it's rather large and on the upper left corner?

Photo from Tuesday
"Did you know that Stockholm is not Nationalmuseum’s only location? The museum is responsible for collections of fine art and applied art at various castles, palaces, manor houses and museums around Sweden. In this image, a contemporary bronze cast from an original by Adriaen de Vries is being placed in front of Drottningholm Palace."

A great german documentary of the Drottningholm Palace park. They show how the courtyard of the Palace is prepared to princess Leonore's christening, a big "L" is made of flowers. Queen Silvia has been interviewed. Chinese Pavilion is shown from inside too, and some rooms of the Palace. And the season of the Drottningholm Palace Theatre is opened with opera. They show how the "technology" at the old Theatre works. Painter Peter Tucker has his small paintings at the park. He loves the park, he has found a piece of his british homeland in the far north.


The royal court published on it's Instagram on Friday a photo from the Drottningholm Palace park:
The labyrinth of English park has reemerged, but in a new form. It is no longer surrounded by high hedges as at Gustav III's time, but the goal is the same, to reach the midpoint.

The Chinese Pavilion in the park at Drottningholm Palace in Sweden was built by Carl Fredric Adelcrantz for Queen Lovisa Ulrica in 1763-69. It replaced an earlier smaller pavilion built in wood that had been built as a surprise for the queen by her husband King Adolf Fredric and presented to her on her birthday 24 July 1753. It is European fantasy in the Rococo style of how a Chinese building might look. The royal family loved the building and it has survived remarkably unchanged.

A separate house was built as a private dining room the 'Confidence' for the royal family at the Chinese Pavilion, Drottningholm. The kitchen is below and the table was set in the room below and was sent up through the floor. Food was delivered by dumbwaiters in the corners of the room. Here the royals and their closest friends could dine in private without servants eavesdropping.

The Mirror Salon in the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm is the room that has the least Chinese influence here. The Gustavian chairs made c 1770-1780 covered with a hand painted Chinese 18th century silk were brought here in the 1840's by Oscar I.

Queen Lovisa Ulrica's Bedroom in the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm. The queen never slept here and there was never a bed here, just the small sofa to the left. This was her most private room where she would retire to have a rest as the pavilion was only intended for daytime visits. All the furniture as well as the silk on the walls is original from the 1760's

A watercolour by the architect Carl Fredric Adelcrantz from the 1760's of the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm. This drawing was sent by Queen Lovisa Ulrica to her brother King Fredrick the Great of Prussia in Berlin.

The Green Salon in the Chinese Salon at Drottningholm was decorated by Johan Pasch with motifs inspired by engravings by François Boucher. The stools are still covered with their original green leather from the 1760's.

The Red Cabinet in the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm is the only room in the pavilion that shows similarity to a genuine Chinese interior. It is based on an interior published in Sir William Chambers' work 'Designs of Chinese Buildings, Furniture...' The black lacquer panels comes from a Chinese screen.

An usually elaborate LouisXV corner console table (one of four) made in Stockholm in the 1750's for Drottningholm Palace and transferred to the Chinese Pavilion in 1760's. It was probably carved by a French craftsman working at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

The unique set of stools in the Chinese Pavilion were made in the 1760's in a style that was considered 'Chinese' at the time.

The Yellow Cabinet in the Chinese Pavilion, Drottningholm, has lacquer panels from a Chinese screen fitted into the panelling. The overdoors were painted by Johan Pasch after François Boucher.

The Blue Salon in the Chinese Pavilion was also used as a dining room. Each room in the pavilion is decorated in a contrasting colour to the preceding one. The walls were decorated by Johan Pasch with Chinoiseries after engravings by François Boucher. The dining chairs are original to the room that originally had a stone floor.

Queen Lovisa Ulrica of Sweden (1720-82) by the Prussian court painter Antoine Pesne. The Queen was a sister of Fredric the Great of Prussia and married to King Adolf Fredric of Sweden. She was a great patron of the arts and she and her husband had the Chinese Pavilion built in the park at Drottningholm Palace in the 1760's. There was one problem in this otherwise very happy marriage. The queen wanted power to rule, but the Parliament had the power and her husband the king was a mere figurehead. They tried to stage a coup d'etat to take power in 1756. This failed and her closest supporters were executed and the royal couple were humiliated. A name stamp was used if the King refused to sign state documents he didn't agree with.

The Octagonal Room in the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm still has the original hand painted, albeit faded, Chinese silk on the walls. The upstairs rooms in the pavilion were private and the court was only allowed up here if invited.
