As I noted in earlier posts, Villa Solbacken is the home of Princess Lilian.

Princess Lilian lives at Villa Solbacken which lies on Royal Djurgården (large park like area) in Stockholm. It was a villa that Prince Bertil (her late husband) owned when they met during the war in London, and which she lived in together with him when she moved in his home after she came to Sweden (that they lived together was sort of a public secret), long before they were allowed to marry.

Gustaf von Hofsten,a former adjutant of the king, told to Svensk Damtidning that he has helped to carry some treasures and valuable things away from Villa Solbacken. He told also that there hasn't been made any decisions about a possible renovation. And no decision of who is going to move there hasn't been made either. He said that he doesn't know if Carl Philip is going to move there - and Carl Philip doesn't know it either.

According to Expressen, Villa Solbacken will be renovated and Carl Philip and Sofia will move there. The Villa has 7 rooms and a kitchen, 250 square meters.

It looks like a lovely home...grand and simple all at once.
