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.

In April is published a book "Slottstid : Klockor på de svenska Kungliga slotten" (Palace time: Clocks at the Swedish Royal Palaces)

The clocks at the Swedish royal palaces tick and can tell amazing stories. Looking closer to those where they stand, often surrounded by candelabra or urns and with a background of a gilt mirror, we can discover a whole world.
In the book the clocks and their background is described with text and photos. Why they stand right there, when they are made and by whom.

To mark WWF's global climate campaign, Earth Hour, the floodlighting will be turned off at several of the royal palaces on Saturday 30 March between 20:30 and 21:30.
Those palaces that have floodlighting – the Royal Palace of Stockholm, Drottningholm Palace, Gripsholm Castle, Strömsholm Palace and Ulriksdal Palace – will turn this lighting off during Earth Hour.
At the Royal Palace of Stockholm, the lights will also be turned off in the Outer and Inner Courtyards and in the official rooms.

The court published its annual web magazine about the Royal Palaces in the spring.

At the magazine Victoria welcomes everyone to visit the Royal Palaces:
Welcome to the Royal Palaces
Spring is here and summer is coming. At the Royal Palaces around Mälardalen the preparation is in full to welcome all summer visitors. I hope you are one of them.
More and more people are getting their eyes on local tourism - to vacation at home and discover all the great things we have.
The Royal Palaces with their parks are perfect for day trips. Beside the regular showings exhibitions, concerts and lectures are arranged. It is given also opportunities to meet some of the knowledgeable people who work to nurture and show our cultural heritage.
April 26, the King inaugurated this year's edition of the drawing competition and the exhibition The Thinking The hand, which is shown in the Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities until the midsummer weekend. The beautiful museum is one too many unknown parts of the Royal Palace.
In October, the Hall of State at the Royal Palace will be filled with textile glory. Then the textile artist, contractor and designer Märta Måås-Fjetterström's rugs will be shown in a unique exhibition. One of these beautiful carpets is in The Grand living room at Ulriksdal Palace. There you can already this summer get a taste of the autumn exhibition.
I also want to warmly recommend the parks that surround several of the Royal Palaces. There, nature meets culture, history meets present - there can be both big and small have fun and play freely on your own explorations.
The royal sights have a lot to offer for all ages. I warmly welcome you to the cultural treasure that the Royal Palaces are!
