The royal palaces participate in Earth Hour
On Saturday, March 24, at. 20.30-21.30, the facade lighting is switched off at the Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace, Strömsholm Palace, Ulriksdal Palace and Gripsholm Castle due to the World Food Fund WWF's global climate manifestation, Earth Hour.
At the Royal Palace, lights will be switched off also at the outer and inner courtyard and in the official rooms.
For safety reasons, however, the park and street lighting are not switched off at Drottningholm Palace and Gripsholm Castle and at Royal Djurgården.

The Royal Court has just launched a new website for the Royal Palaces:

Kungliga slotten - Kungliga slotten

English version
English - Kungliga slotten

The website has gorgeous photos of the Royal Palaces. It will take some time to look through all of them.

A new book "Kungliga slotten – Människor och berättelser" (The Royal Palaces - People and Stories) was launched on 6th June.
http://inpress.com/wp-content/upload...kenFrilagd.jpg

In Sweden there are no less than eleven royal palaces and castles. They are a unique cultural heritage. Nevertheless, many of them are relatively unknown. In the new book Royal Palaces - People and Stories, their exciting story is brought to life.
The book tells about some of the people who have lived and worked in the palaces and depict exciting events that have occurred here. A separate chapter depicts the royal women. The book also highlights international influences that have characterized the castles, furnishings and trends as well as one and another castle secret.
Royal Palaces - People and stories tells about the Swedish royal history from Vasa time to the present. In the book we meet both the royals behind the scenes.
In this book, the female perspectives also take place. We meet royal women who have not previously been portrayed as often as Princess Eugénie, committed to animal rights, the enigmatic princess Hedvig Sofia, Karl XII's favorite sister, the King's grandmother Margareta - artist, flower princess and hockey player - and many more.
At the Royal Palaces you can literally touch the story. Many of the original items still exist - from children's books to travel beds from the 17th century. The book reveals the secrets of some of these exciting objects.
The book also links many of the most dramatic events in Swedish history to the places they played - and the rooms that you can still visit today, and contains also an easy-to-read overview of the history of the 11 Royal Palaces.
The original texts have been developed in collaboration with the Royal Court for the Royal Palace's summer magazines during five years.
The book is sold primarily through the Royal Gift Shops and online bookshops.

Royal Walks
The Royal Walks app guides you along a scenic stroll through Djurgården, from Djurgården Bridge and along the waterfront to the Royal summer palace, Rosendal.
The route takes in sculptures, buildings, historical sites and events.The Bernadotte Walk tells of the significance of the Bernadotte dynasty for Royal Djurgården – all of the seven Bernadotte kings have links to the area. Find out about the king who constructed Rosendal Palace and its surrounding parkland, the king who celebrated his silver jubilee with a world exhibition, and the king who inaugurated the world’s first National City Park.
The Waterfront Walk stretches from Djurgården Bridge along the shore in the direction of Rosendal. Along the way we pass the “Swedish Nightingale”, and learn about the people and events that gave Jägarbackarna and Villa Godthem their names.
The app also allows you to create your own walks to suit your interests, with the categories Garden and nature, Buildings and constructions, Royal, Places and events and Sculptures.
