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?

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.

The Royal Palace is currently undergoing one of the most extensive restoration work in the modern era (from 2011 to 2036) - to replace and restore the stone on the castle facade.
The new colour can be seen now.

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.

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.
