Tullgarn Palace, Sörmland
Tullgarn Palace

Tullgarn Palace is a former summer residence located on the Häggnäsviken Bay in Trosa, Sörmland.
The Palace was built in the 1720s, and was acquired for the crown in 1772 by King Gustav III, who leant the Palace to his younger brother Duke Fredrik Adolf.
Major interior changes were made following 1881, when King Gustav V took over the Palace with his consort, Queen Victoria.

Stockholm, Sweden" a Royal Greeting. All set to congratulate their great grandfather, King Gustaf V of Sweden, during yesterday's 91st birthday celebration, are (left to right), Princess Birgitta, Little Prince Carl Gustaf and the Princess Margaretha, Christina, and Desiree. The old Monarch celebrated his birthday with the royal family at the royal Castle of Tullgarn.

From the Tullgarn Palace broschure:

In the room 'Lilla förmaket' (see file name) there is now a small tree table with glass, keeping the guestbook and the page you can see the self written signatures of the last Tsar Family of Russia. They came to Tullgarn on an official visit with a large ship in their last years...

The breakfast room is decorated in southern German Renaissance style from the 1890s.

The Blue Salon, Tullgarn Palace's parade room, has during this year been under careful painting restoration, which should be ready in November.

You are correct. Tullgarn haven't been used as an official residence since the days of King Gustaf V, the great grandfather of King Carl XVI Gustaf who was King between 1907-1950.

Tullgarn is still an official Royal Residence and the Royal Family has access to a guest apartment there for when they are visiting the Palace or hosting an event there but no one lives there anymore.
