Leo Eriksson, the Director of Administration of Solliden, told to Svensk Damtidning some weeks ago, that the king and queen have been very involved with the renovations made to the Palace during the years. As soon one shows the technical drawing to the king, he sees the big picture. And the queen as eye to technical solutions. The king and queen want to keep the Palace intact and very easy and modest, there isn't any luxury in it. When the staff of the kitchen at Drottningholm Palace arrives to Solliden, they are staying at so called drivers' house. Eriksson tells also that the royal children still have their rooms at the Palace, although they are not staying there. He has never seen a TV at the Palace, or at any of the guest houses at the Palace area. While the Palace park is open for public, the family is staying at the boat house, Kavaljershuset or Victoria's and Daniel's summer house. There is a big table at the boat house, it can take thirty people.
Eriksson tells that Estelle and Leonore are playing at the old playhouse of the Haga princesses and that there is already a secret path which is planned to be named after the children of Carl Philip and Sofia. There are already prinsessan Estelles promenad (princess Estelle's promenade) and prinsessan Leonores promenad from Solliden to Borgholm. Eriksson thinks that it is great that Victoria and Daniel have chosen to establish themselves to the Solliden estate, and he hopes that Carl Philip and Sofia will do that too.

Svensk Damtidning writes that the Palace is about 400 square meters. It is white outside but not so light at the inside at all with a lot of dark wood used at the Palace.

Video from the Palace Facebook, a "waterfall", with Solliden's own water.

A photo from Solliden, lovely glass doors with the king's and queen's monogram. The garden was today open for the last day of this summer. It is open for 4 days at the Harvest festival on 24-27 September.

Harvest celebration in Solliden, the Palace park is open from Thursday to Sunday. You can buy potatoes, carrots, apples ... and have a nice cup of coffee at Kaffetorpet.

Apple picking time in Solliden. They tell at their Facebook, that queen Victoria planted about 2500 fruit trees to Solliden, and today there about 200 of those trees still in Solliden.

Greenhouses are getting full when flowers are moved inside from the park.

According to the text at the photos they make äppelmust (a non-alcoholic cider) of the apples. That is sold at Kaffetorpet (Cottage Café) in Solliden.

Deer is hunted in Sweden only during certain time frames. Most common deer is the roe deer. The fallow deer is not as common.
