Photos from the Instagram of Håkan Groth, antique expert, dealer and photographer.
A commode by Georg Haupt which in fact is a pullout bed. It was used by Gustaf III's guard and stood originally in the King's bedroom at Ekolsund Manor.

A Swedish Louis XV table made for Queen Lovisa Ulrica's first small library at Drottningholm c 1750.

One of a pair of Japanese lidded Imari porcelain urns in the Chinese Salon. The silk on the furniture and walls was recently woven at Almgren's Silk Weavers in Stockholm after a design by Jean Eric Rehn.

Pehr Hilleström (1732-1816), 'The Conversation at Drottningholm' painted in 1779 when the room had just been redecorated by Jean-Baptiste Masreliez. It shows Gustaf III seated in the sofa studying architectural drawings looking towards a bust of his cousin Catherine the Great. He is wearing the so-called Swedish Dress and the ladies are wearing the special black and white court dress. Queen Sophia Magdalena in a different dress is seated in the centre at a needlework table. The bust of the empress was given this important position as the painting was intended for her as a thank you present for all her gifts and the bust in particular.

A biscuit porcelain bust of Catherine the Great of Russia that was a gift to her cousin Gustaf III. It can be seen in the same position on Pehr Hilleström's painting of the room dated 1779.

The Blue Salon was redecorated by Jean-Baptiste Masreliez in 1778-79 for Gustaf III when the double doors were installed. When Drottningholm Palace was built in the late 17th century all the rooms had lower single doors which was the fashion then.

This cabinet by Nils Petter Stenström contains silk samples from the 18th century. It was a gift to Gustaf III from the silk merchant Adrian Hardt in 1781. The doors have inlaid motifs depicting the silk weaving process. This room was used as the most important guest room at Drottningholm at the end of the 19th century. Amongst visitors who slept here in a gilt Empire bed (now removed) were Tsar Alexander III of Russia and Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany on their visits to Oscar II.

The long case clock has a movement signed William Jourdain. The original case was replaced in Prussia in the 1750's and is believe to have been a gift from Frederick the Great to his sister Queen Lovisa Ulrica of Sweden.

A pair of possibly Swedish Empire candelabra on either side of a Meissen birdcage in the Blue Salon. The Louis XVI style silk on the dates from 1926.

A small Gustavian anteroom decorated around 1778-80 for Gustaf III. It was originally King Adolph Fredric's dressing room. The Louis XV secretaire was made by Johan Niclas Eckstein (master in Stockholm c 1732-76).

A Swedish Louis XV armchair made in the French style. Original sample chairs were imported from France and copied, but there was also a colony of French painters, carvers and cabinet makers active in decorating the Stockholm Royal Palace in the period 1730-1760. A school was set up at the palace where French artists taught the Swedes. This was the foundation of the Royal Academy of Art in Sweden.

Drottningholm at 06.30 AM, the King and Queen are still asleep and only the Royal Guard is up! The best way to travel here is by taking the old fashioned boats that leaves from the Town Hall in Stockholm. The first pontoon bridge was only built in 1788.

At the SVT program "Drottningholms slott - ett kungligt hem" (Drottningholm Palace - A Royal Home) was told about the Bathhouse at Drottningholm, it was build in 1793. It was the first one in Sweden which has hot water, wooden bathtubs, showers and seawater pool. Already Gustav III made sketches to the bathhouse, but he was murdered in 1792. His brother, duke Karl, made the dream come true and the house was build.
Queen Silvia told at the program that there are several rooms at the bathhouse and a big pool. Queen Silvia has never used the bathhouse. She says she doesn't know why, she lives by the water, it is so beautiful, one wants to but it just hasn't happened. She laughs that maybe she is afraid of pikes.

AIX antiquarians developed on behalf of The National Property Board Sweden a care program for the bathhouse at Drottningholm Palace. Palace architect Erland Montgomery was the director of the care program.

Picture of the christening cradle used for Madeleine, Leonore, Nicolas, Oscar and Alexander in Drottningholm Slott.

Aret Med Kungafamiljen 1977 in English subtitles state that Victoria laid in it after her baptism but I have no information on that and her cradle was different

I just think it's a beautiful piece.

Interview with King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia for Dagens Nyheter. ~ Royally Scandinavian

I did not think they gave anyone access to their private little garden. This is from interview though

Ekerövägen, road 261, just outside the Drottningholm Palace area will be broadened and bus files should be built to provide increased accessibility. During the road work period, accessibility to Drottningholm Palace can be severely restricted.
- Big construction projects, of course, are likely to interfere with the business, but I'm not so worried. The road needs to be rebuilt and we will solve any problems that may arise for visitors going to Drottningholm, says Staffan Larsson, Governor of the Royal Palaces.
Among other things, the entrances to Drottningholm must be relocated, according to information given to Expressen.
- It is true that the entrance to Drottningholm needs to be reviewed. How the exact design becomes, we may return to.
An option to ensure that tourists can still visit Drottningholm is to increase the density of boat trips to the Palace.
- It's something we have discussed to solve any possible interference that may occur along the way.
