LadyFinn, This picture reminds me of Mother's occupation. She is a housecleaner.
One of her favorite duties is to clean windows.
Could she get employed at the Royal Palace?

Svensk Damtidning told a few weeks ago about a "secret" room at the Royal Palace. It is crown princess Margareta's garden room. The reporter of Svensk Damtidning was allowed to visit the room. It is like the time has stopped there. There are still Margareta's shoes she used there, and some flowerpots and a waterjug. Margareta loved flowers and missed her homeland's gardens. And so she made a garden room to the attic of the Palace. There she could spend some time in her own. There was already a winter garden in the Palace with exotic flowers but Margareta wanted a room where she could work with soil, water and plants without needing to be bothered about how the room looked like. So it was decorated very practically. After Margareta's death the room has been left like it was when she spend time there.

LadyFinn, This is an absolutely lovely photograph.
It may have not been everyday a Crown Princess had a garden room. Margareta definitely did!

The Audience Chamber of the State Apartments contains a canopy embroidered in Milan around 1500 at the request of the Sforza family.
