It´s located almost in the city center, next to the Dramatic Theater in Norrmalm-Östermalm, maybe about 1-1,5 kilometer from the Royal Palace.

Why do some of the royal family live here instead of the royal palace?

I don´t really know, but maybe they feel that it´s a little more intimite and private then the "half open, museum" royal palace. Now no member of the royal family lives in the royal palace, i wonder if they ever will again.

Mertil Melin, the Court Equerry, the chief of the Royal Mews told about the work of the Royal Stables on last week's Svensk Damtidning.
Melin told that in addition to taking care of the horses and organizing the royal corteges, they take care of all royal transportation, with cars too. They have five chauffeurs. Besides taking the members of the royal family to their duties, they carry the laundry and food and other personal.
Sometimes they "babysit" Madeleine's dog Zorro when she goes to somewhere, Madeleine lives at the Royal Mews. And then you have to be careful, that Oscar, the stable cat, isn't nearby, because Zorro and Oscar don't like eachother.
Soon the Mews makes room for the Shetland pony Frozza, which Victoria and Daniel got as a wedding present. And in a few years Hajdi, the gotland pony Leonore got as a christening present, will move there too. Then Estelle and Leonore can ride together.
Melin told about the cortege at the Opening of the Parliament: the king decides how many carriages are needed and are they open carriages or not. Before the cortege days the king follows the weather forecast and he is almost always very good in it! If you have to change from a open carriage to a covered one, you have to change the gear and clothes too.
Melin tells that he starts his working days by riding about two hours in Djurgården with his horse Cardinal. The staff working at the Royal Mews must know their horses well. At the cortege to the Opening of Parliament is about 80 horses and 100 people, including the police.
The Royal Mews, the police and the Royal Guard trains together before every cortege. They take time at the rehearsals so that everything goes well when it is time for the cortege.
The Royal Mews carries about 5500 car transportations and 25 corteges a year.
The Royal Mews houses 18 horses and 20 cars, including the King's private Porsche.

I'm posting this here as a guess as to where to put it. Was an extended length Volvo used for royal transport in the early 1970's. I know a Daimler DS420 is in the current fleet. Is it right hand drive or left and I'm guessing it's black. Also, do they carry numbers plates?
