Personal memories and favorites from a loved Palace.
For Princess Christina Drottningholm is an old love. There she has celebrated Christmas every year since childhood and often participated in various private and official events. The Palace's history, environments and personalities, not least the strong women who left their imprint there, have always fascinated her.
She highlights from the individual events in Drottningholm history her favorites and shares her own experiences at the Palace. She tells the story of the young widow Hedvig Eleonora who started the building of the Palace, dance performances at the ancient theater, about grandfather Gustaf VI Adolf's garden plans and unusual Christmas dinner, about sledge trips with siblings in the park and her wedding waltz with her husband Tord Magnuson at Karl X Gustav's gallery and much more.
The book will be published also in english.
