Yes, the country house of Prince Carl Philip was given to him by the people of Värmland County to him as their Duke, after a fundraising among the people in the county.

A friend of mine had this illustrations on frames, and I decided to post them here. This are landscapes from Sweden. This illustrations are from 1835. I hope you like them (sorry for the bad quality but they were in frames and it was not easy to photograph them! :) )

#1 - Carlbergs Slott

#2 - Skokloster

#3 - Bohus Fastnin

Villa Beylon

Villa Beylon is named after Swiss Jean Francois Beylon, a good friend and advisor of both King Gustaf III and Queen Lovisa Ulrika. In 1772, he received the building on the Ulriksdal Palace estate as a gift from the King. When he died five years later, the building was torn down. The present pink villa with its two wings was commissioned and built in 1802-03 by a director M F Stübing.

From 1810 to 1836, the Russian Ambassador, Peter van Suchtelen, rented Villa Beylon. He was a society figure and an art collector and had an interest in gardening. He had an English park with little romantic temples and hermitages established on the villa’s estate, which is still today in good shape.

After him, Villa Beylon was for a period the home of a Court Marshall named Erik Wetter. Then in the 1970’s, it was thoroughly renovated and conserved before Princess Christina moved in together with her family in 1974.

Villa Beylon is 400 square metres (4 300 square feet?) big. It is situated on the Ulriksdal Palace estate in Solna in Stockholm County, and is one of around 60 cultural historically interesting buildings preserved on the estate. It lies in beautiful nature, and Edsviken (a bay) is very near. It’s a short drive from Stockholm city.


Picture 1 is taken by me (in 2005, taken from the backside), picture 2 is from Svensk Damtidning (taken from the frontside, don't know what year, I think it's an old colour, since it's pink today):

No, not yet anyway. So far it's only Svensk Damtidning that speculates that she and her husband will next year, and that Victoria and Daniel will move in after a renovation after marrying.

Well you have the palace on riddarholmen where the court is (maybe the supreme court..?), I can´t remember the name, but it is the palace where the royal family lived back in the days when the castle was built after the fire in 1697. And wasn´t the palace where the state apartment is located today a royal palace, or atleast some royal person used to live there right? I´m sure there are many more...

Yes, I'm sure there are several. The ones I come to think of immediately are Arvfursten's Palace, which today hosts the Minitry for Foreign Affairs, and the Wrangelska Palace, which was home for the Royal Family for a brief period after the Tre Kronor Palace was burnt down (and the one I think rop81 means in the previous post), and is today the residence of the Svea Courts of Appeal.

I've written about Arvursten's Palace in this thread before, to read more about it, go here or here

palaces formerly used by the royals are places like Haga, Rosersberg, Ulriksdal

sorry if I'm too lazy to browse through every single page already written. I did 6 pages and then I went to the end of the thread.

http://www.sfv.se/cms/sfv/vara_fasti...a%20slott.html
Haga is situated right north of the inner city. The King and his sisters were brought up at Haga but since 1966 it's in use only for receptions for prominent governmental visits. On an island in the Haga lake the royals have their private cemetary, which is still ''in use'' when someone dies.

http://www.sfv.se/cms/sfv/vara_fasti...rgs_slott.html
Rosersberg some 40 km north of Stockholm was in use as a summer residence from 1762 to 1860. Queen Desideria was the last royal person to live there. I believe she became senile / very confused and was seen running around outdoors on the estate at nights in her nightgown.

http://www.stockholmsmuseer.com/museer/ulriksdal.php3
Ulriksdal in the north of the Haga area was in use by the late King Gustav 6 Adolf (who died 1973) and Queen Louise.

http://www.stockholmsmuseer.com/museer/rosendals.php3
And little Rosendal, built for King Carl 14 Johan (the first Bernadotte King) on Djurgården on the east side of the inner city. Was turned into a museum after King Oscar II died in 1907.

Yes that´s right, but all of the castles mentioned above are still Royal Palaces and might sometimes be used by the royal family. You can go to www.royalcourt.se to read more about them and the other ten royal palaces.

Yes, all of the palaces that Fagerborn mentioned are still Royal Palaces at the monarch's disposal, and managed by The Office of the Governor of the Royal Palaces included in the structure of the Royal Court.

With the busy lives of the Royal Family, the fact that they use two of the Royal Palaces in their daily lives (Drottningholm and the Royal Palace), having opened up so much to the public as well as considering that the Royal Palaces are quite spread out - it's no wonder that they don't have the chance to use the residences more. Sometimes I think it's too bad that they aren't used more, but I also understand it. As long as the other 8 Royal Palaces are continued to be used once in a while by the Royal Family for official and private events, I'm quite happy.

So I think we're gonna have to look elsewhere for suggestions. Villa Beylon, the home of Princess Christina and her husband (who are moving out this year) has been one object of speculation in the press, but I'm sure there could be others as well.
Where does she live? I cannot remember if I ever even knew.

The Spanish embassy is in the "Byströmska Villan" at Djurgården. This house was the residence for prince Carl and Princess Ingeborg for a couple of years in the beginning of the 20th century. It was heavliy rebuilt for them by architect Ferdinand Boberg who designed five reconstructions/newbuildings for members of the royal family, the best known of these is Waldemarsudde for prince Eugen. He also designed a palace for prince Gustaf Adolf (later crownprince Gustaf Adolf / King Gustav VI Adolf) which wasn´t built. Another of his buildings for the Royal family was Oakhill near Waldemarsudde for prince Wilhelm and his wife princess Anna. This building which was financed by a childless Russian princess, who was an aunt of princess Anna, and was sold following their divorce. It is now the Italian Embassy.

Some of these old castles / palaces may not be upgraded with today's necessarities, like hot water, toilets, central heating and such.

I know the Skokloster castle doesn't have central heating.

It's very expensive and extremely difficult to construct these systems and physicly get them into the old castle rooms, so I believe it's only done when it's absolutely necessary.

Maybe this is why the royal family only uses the fairly new Solliden along with Drottningholm and the Stockholm palace. They could easily use places like Tullgarn and Stenhammar much more if they wanted to.

I know about visiting Drottningholm and Gripsholm, but are there any other "royal places" I shouldn't miss on a visit?

I guess it depends on your interests, but the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Drottningholm and Gripsholm are top 3 for a first time visit. I would also recommend a visit to Waldemarsudde, the home of the late Prince Eugen which is today a museum.
