The King says no to refugees at the Royal Palace - but opens to find other premises to be used as housing for asylum seekers.
The National Property Board, which owns the palaces which the king disposes, is sympathetic to an initiative from the court.
- Overall, it's a great idea to make use of premises that are never used, says Johan Zetterberg, property director at the Agency for Administrative.

The housing situation of asylum seekers is acute and the government has announced that Sweden can no longer guarantee shelter to all who come.
That has made the king to consider how the court could help.
- The Royal Family are following and are incredibly committed to this issue. Based on the situation that is like that many help in various ways, and even the royal family has done it by supporting established organizations specifically working with refugees, says Margareta Thorgren.
The Royal Court and the royal family's charitable foundations manage over two billion, and it is through them they have contributed with their support. The court has previously received requests from the public to allow asylum seekers to stay overnight at the Royal Palace, which they, however, have dismissed.
- The Royal Palace is one of Sweden's most important tourist destinations and also museum and workplace for many people, says Thorgren.

In contrast, the king is open to "other creative suggestions". But when it comes to the properties Thorgren believes that any initiative should come from the National Property Board, which formally owns the Palaces.
What would you answer if the National Property Board will find a suitable property as the king disposes?
- Then we would discuss it, yes, says Thorgren.

The National Property Board, which manages state property, earlier this year sent a list of areas of land that could be used to build new asylum accommodation.
So if the king gets in touch and wants to lend a room or residence to refugees you are in favor?
- Yes, of course. What we need to monitor, for example, cultural values ​​and assets. But otherwise, we think that overall it is a great idea to use premises that are never used.

Well, I agree with the matter... It wouldn't be so simple to give shelter at the palace and I think they are discussing very good points and alternatives...

The King and the rest of the family are strongly committed to the refugee issue. But the court denies now that the King's properties in Sweden would be actual as asylum places:
- No, that's not true, says Margareta Thorgren
That the king's properties in Sweden which he uses through the National Property Board would function as asylum accommodation is not true according to Ms Thorgren.
- No, it's nothing that has been an issue. And will also not be relevant in the present. It is simply not true.

Carl Philip received a holiday home in Sunne as a christening gift. Soon after the King chose to buy a house next to it.
He sold this house last December, on 1 December last year registered the king's sale of his house at the National Land Survey in Uddevalla. The purchase price is SEK 625 000 and the new owners are a Norwegian couple of Jessheim in Norway - Stig and Gunny Bodin.
- Yes, it is true that the house has been sold. It has not been used for a long time and in recent years it has been leased and therefore it was better to sell, says Jan Lindman, financial director of the court.
- The house has been empty. It was used for a while by the SÄPO who was with the prince in Sunne, but recently they have found other solutions and then there was no reason to keep the house, says Lindman.
625 000 SEK. What the king does with the money?
- They go into the bank.
New owner Stig Bodin had no idea that it was the king's house he bought.
- No, not until the deal would be signed. A house is a house, a cottage is a cottage. There is nothing more to it.
In January, the couple moved in and are using it now as a summer residence with Carl Philip and Sofia as immediate neighbors, but they haven't yet seen the couple.
- No, but they are for us as the other neighbors at any time.
When you moved in, had the king left behind something?
- No, Stig laughs, not even a little ghost.

I'm surprised the king did not give the house to Carl Philip and Sofia, but I didn't know that CP already had a house in Varmland as a christening gift. (Did Victoria and Madeleine get homes as gifts, or CP got one because he was the perceived crown prince at the time?). I didn't realize CP has a lot of properties, so I can understand the stink raised about CP and Sofia moving into Queen's Pavillion a while back.

Here is Carl Philip's house in Värmland, which he got as a christening gift. Victoria and Madeleine haven't got houses as christening gifts.

And then Carl Philip owns the Ökenäs farm in Källvik, where he according to his own words proposed Sofia. He inherited it in 2007 from former naval officer Bertil Jonsén. The farm has 98 hectares of forest and agricultural land.

And Carl Philip owns Villa Solbacken in Djurgården.

Gods och Gårdar magazine publishes only now some photos of the chairs at the Solliden exhibition "Kungliga stolar genom 200 år" (Royal Chairs through 200 years), which the king and queen inaugurated on 15th May.
They have photos of chairs from various palaces.

Not what I know of. The Royal Court announced that the dinner Queen Silvia attended the other day would take place at the residence of the Swedish Ambassador in Rome.
