I think that swedish royal palaces are very mighty and beautifull.Far more monumental and more pretty than, for instance, famous british residences.
Unfortunatelly, they are not so world known.Their position (On the sea costs), their baroque architecture, their interior are wonderfool.And most important, they are houses of my favorite royal, Crown Princess Victoria.

There have been two royal summer residences with the name Villa Fridhem (Fridhem = Peaceful home), one on the island of Gotland, Villa Fridhem, Västerhejde - Wikipedia owned by princess Eugénie of Sweden and the other Villa Fridhem in Östergötland, Villa Fridhem, Kolmården - Wikipedia owned by prince Carl of Sweden, the father of queen Astrid of Belgium and crown princess Märtha of Norway.

It's a pity that Villa Fridhem in Kålmården, Villa Fridhem, Kolmården - Wikipedia is privately owned now, it would have been a beautiful summer home for the new Duchess of Ösgtergötland.

One reason that the royal family do not own any castle besides Solliden is that Bernadotte is a new dynasty. The royal castles were build by earlier dynasties and was owned by "the crown"(the state). The Bernadottes build Rosendahls castle( it is more of a pavillion), Sofiero and Solliden. They payed for these buildings with their private money. I do not know how it came that Rosendal is owned by the state, but Sofiero was left to the city of Helsingborg in Gustaf VI Adolf's will.

Villa Beylon was not owned by princess Christina. It is one of the many buildings the king has at his disposal where he can chose the tenant.

There is a rumour that Carl Philip is building a new flat in central Stockholm. He is supposed to have bought an attic and is now having a modern two story flat constructed. Well he as recently got a mortgage on his farm.

When Oscar II died in 1907, Gustaf V, Prince Oscar, Prince Carl and Prince Eugen decided to turn Rosendal Palace into a museum dedicated to Karl XIV Johan and the family of Bernadotte in general. The palace as a museum officially opened its doors in 1913; it's still open to public in summer.
Since it is the government, and not the royal family, who has paid for maintaining the palace, it became state owned.

Thank you for the interesting information; I never knew the Bernadottes only built three palaces.

Prince Carl and princess Ingeborg lived in Villa Parkudden in Djurgården in 1899-1908. The villa has been owned by Royal Djurgården administration from 1908, but the king disposes it.
It was planned that Madeleine and Jonas Bergström would have moved there but that made a big fight, since there were tenants at the villa.

Villa Parkudden is now empty of tenants and slottsfogde Gunnar Haeger says that it would be a very good home for Madeleine or Carl Philip. SÄPO considers it as a good place for someone who needs bigger security measures. There is four apartments at the house but it will be renovated by installing geothermal heating, and a new kitchen and bathroom will be made.
The king hasn't decided yet who can move to the Villa. When Madeleine and Jonas were supposed to move in, it caused trouble since there were tenants living in the villa, now they all have moved to other houses in Djurgården.
Madeleine lives now in New York, but if she's moving home or need an overnight home Villa Parkudden would be a good option. Carl Philip has a floor near Djurgården but could get a much nicer and safer housing at Villa Parkudden. Haeger says that it is clear that there is such speculation, but they have still not received any information regarding this.

Gunnar Holmgren, Governor of the Royal Palaces, will soon inspect Villa Parkudden.
- I actually have not had time to see it for myself. It is only now that we have access to it, he says.
He wouldn't comment on whether he has heard who will be living in the villa.
- There is no decision as far as I can tell.

Villa Parkudden will be renovated. Expressen has an article "Sofia's and Carl Philip's dream house renovated on Djurgården".

After Villa Parkudden with its 900 square meters has been empty since last year it is now prepared for it's future tenants. The next few months, the entire facade will be touched up and the standard should be raised at the previous exclusive accommodation.
- Late autumn, I would guess that we are told by the king who or which ones to dispose of the house. The first is the facade and roof which will be reviewed now, it is usually the one starts with before an interior renovation. We now look at how to manage the building, says Gunnar Holmgren, governor and castellan at Stockholm Castle Administration.
There is an extensive renovation that is now being implemented and when the first stage of facade and roof is finished, the house will also get an interior renovation.
- The first will last for at least six months, says Holmgren.
Princess Madeleine recently revealed that she and Chris O'Neill had Villa Parkudden as an alternative for housing, but it did not happen because the couple did not live full-time in Sweden.
Those who could move in at Villa Park are Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist. They live today just 700 meters from the house in another house that the king disposes. Carl Philip owns also prince Bertil's Villa Solbacken.

Villa Parkudden is classified by SÄPO as suitable with safety, the house is on a hill and not close to other homes. It is a house that is relatively easy for SÄPO to redo and the rate as a security building.
Director Margareta Thorgren from the press department:
- There is no one moving in Villa Parkudden in near future.
Could it be Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist?
- That is absolutely not actual in the current situation, says Thorgren.
Neither around Villa Solbacken are some decisions:
- There are different ideas, but nothing concrete in the current situation that we can communicate, says Mats Nilsson, First Marshal of the Court.
