Photo taken today before the Global Child Forum. I wish the court would publish a HQ photo of this room and the gorgeous painting of crown princess Margareta.

It's part of the private apartments at the Palace, I think it's why don't see any HQ pictures. But it is indeed a very nice room and lovely painting.

Photo from King Carl XVI Gustaf's Jubilee Room, taken by Alexis Daflos. The room was a gift from the government, parliament and municipalities for the king when he had been 25 years on the throne.

From court Instagram, about the renovation of the Palace
Right now preparing the roof of the western vault at the Royal Palace for repainting with the old paint carefully removed.

The Swedish National Property Board has published a magazine about the Royal Palace: Read about rooms, halls and stairways, which together with the people that created, worked and lived in the castle created a society in miniature.

The gallery truly is impressive and very beautiful. Thank G-d it survived the fire of 1697!

Video from the Royal Palace From SVT's serie "Svenska hemligheter" (Swedish secrets). A little different places shown than normally: the tunnel, the wood cellar, forgotten stairs, attic. And at 9.30 crown princess Margareta's garden room at the attic. In the end of the video the gorgeous rooms of the Palace are shown.

Successful attempts of solar panels at the Royal Palace
For several years, there has been a preliminary study commissioned by His Majesty the King about the possibility to coat the Royal Palace roof with solar panels.
A smaller test facility, which was installed in 2010 on the north wing of the castle's roof, has worked perfectly.
The castle's roof area is 7200 square meters and if 4400 square meters would be covered with solar cells, these could generate around 500,000 kWh per year, the annual consumption of about 20 average homes or townhouses.
The solar panels would not damage the monument building Royal Palace.
"It would not be visible from the ground and affect the castle's appearance. But they would be visible from the air! A visitor arriving in Stockholm by air could see that the Head of State himself is at the forefront of a shift to renewable energy," says the Marshal of the Realm Svante Lindqvist.

The Royal Court has put to their Youtube SVT's old film about the clocksmith of the court, Philip Jansson. Every week he went to the Palace and took care of about 100 clocks

Oscar I was a very handsome man, very distinguished looking and regal. His wife, Queen Josephine was also a very beautiful woman and you can see that that the male children in the family look so much like their dad. A very handsome family. Was Oscar I and Josephine a love match? Now that I have seen these pictures of the royal family during this time, I want to know more about them and the time period. I also want that gorgeous yellow chair for my home.....what beautiful furniture there is. Now onto the next set.........

Swedish broadcaster SVT confirms key venues and event locations for Eurovision 2016.
The EuroClub will be hosted in a purpose-built venue constructed next to the water in front of the Royal Palace whilst the official fan zone for the Eurovision Song Contest, the Eurovision Village, will be situated in Kungsträdgården (the Royal Gardens).
"The choice of the Stockholm City Hall for the opening ceremony and the Royal Garden for the Eurovision Village feels just right, but what really stands out is the unique location of the EuroClub, at one of Stockholm's most beautiful places, at the waterfront in front of the Royal Palace", said contest producer Christer Björkman.

There is a "matching" bust of the King standing next to this one. I think it was commissioned for the King's 60th birthday, by the same sculptor.

Photos from the Instagram of Håkan Groth, a photographer and antique dealer and expert.
From the Royal Chapel:
The Chapel in the Stockholm Royal Palace was designed in the Baroque style by the architect Nicodemus Tessin the Younger (1654-1729), but decorated by his successor Carl Hårleman (1700-53). Hårleman altered the décor slightly and added elements in the Rococo style in the 1740's.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BBf8y2Jl...by=hakan_groth
The organ in the Stockholm Royal Palace's Chapel was designed by the Royal Architect and Super Intendent Carl Hårleman and decorated by the French sculptor Adrien Masreliez. The first sermon was held here in December 1754.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BBgBGkPF...by=hakan_groth
Between the pulpit and the altar in the Chapel in the Stockholm Royal Palace is a box reserved for members of the Royal Family who wish to attend the church service without being seen by the congregation. The medallion above the door is of the Swedish King Gustaf Vasa (1496-1560) who commissioned the first translated Swedish bible in 1541.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BBf_5d8l...by=hakan_groth
The extraordinary pulpit in the Chapel in the Stockholm Royal Palace was made by the French sculptor Jacques-Philippe Bouchardon (1711-53). It took him three years to carve and it was finished in 1751. Symbols of the Four Evangelists Mathew (an angel), Mark (a winged lion), Luke (an ox) and John (an eagle) are used as supporters.
