Unfortunately not.
I guess that nobody expects them to handle the matter like the Danish CP couple did, producing detailed info and pictures in a most interesting but almost excessive fashion, but I believe that allowing the public a look at the Haga renovation paid for by the people would only be the correct thing to do.
Haga Palace does have representative rooms as well, which the CP couple in interviews said would be used for this purpose, but that aspect hasn't materialized yet.
While there was never a look at the King and Queen's private apartment at Drottningholm Palace allowed either, there were many photo sessions throughout the years in the more official rooms, and the CP couple sharing at least the comparable rooms of Haga with the public would be a very good and sensible idea.

I guess we'll have to wait for children..By the way, what age were Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine when the Christmas photoshoots stopped?

Very sad indeed that someone felt the need to hover over the crownprincess couple's home and then publish the photos.

In the fifth picture is a little red house in the background. A playhouse for the new prince or princess?

Yes, it´s the old playhouse, where king Carl Gustaf was playing with his sisters when he was a child.

That's really cute. Hopefully we'll get pictures of little prince(sse)s playing in their house one day.

Do you know if those playhouses are typically swedish? I remember seeing a picture of the playhouse Princess Astrid of Sweden had when she was little and then later after her marriage to Leopold of Belgium, she had one installed in her garden for her children.

I like it very much as well! I would guess that their private rooms are in a similar style, of which we had a hint via the birthday pictures of Estelle. All their own choice or good advice from an interior architect?!

Not to Haga Palace, but to Haga Park

"Lill-Haga
It is built in the Haga Park for the smallest visitors.
Here everyone can be a prince or a princess".

On Monday 21st April at 20.00 swedish time SVT will show a documentary
Haga Palace - a Royal Home

Swedish documentary from 2014. A film about the Haga Palace then and now. Crown Princess Victoria opens the doors to her new home. Princess Estelle plays in the Haga Princesses' playhouse and Princess Christina remembers her childhood as portrayed in books, songs and news films.

Crown princess Victoria at the documentary:
- For me it's very special that the family is back at Haga. The castle was built by the family at one time so it feels like the circle is closed. I have come closer to my grandmother and grandfather.
For the first time, the crown princess couple Victoria and Daniel let a TV crew into the Haga Palace. During a whole year has SVT producer Sara Bull followed the couple and Princess Estelle through the seasons in the Haga Park and done interviews about Haga Palace and it's history.
- I think many have waited for this program. Haga Palace is an important link in the history of Sweden and that the Crown Princess Couple, along with Princess Estelle now shows up large parts of the castle and the garden with the little playhouse from the 40's is totally unique, says Sara Bull. She also interviewed the Princess Christina who tells about growing up at Haga Palace. Chamberlain Jonas Wallin tells about the history of the palace and shows how they set the table for a representation dinner.

The documentary was wonderful. I could understand a lot of Swedish thanks to the (Swedish) subtitles. Haga Slott looked impeccable, little Princess Estelle too cute.

The interior was 'too impeccable', almost like a showroom of a posh furniture shop. It still has not the feel of being inhabited by a young family, which will undoubtedly happen in a few years time... Princess Victoria and her family are lucky to live in pastoral green Haga. Wonderful.

We saw only the "official" rooms, which are mostly used for representation. They have their own private home, which wasn't shown. I think that from these rooms the veranda is a place which they use for everyday life too.

That makes sense indeed. The state rooms were a bit too modern for my taste. Here and there were old artefacts like a pendule with chandeliers, an old painting, some furniture, maybe I would have used more historical items but I understand very well that taste is very much in the eye of the beholder, that it is Victoria's house and that Scandinavians maybe have a different (more sober?) taste as well.
