Stenhammar Castle is a current residence of the King of Sweden, who rented it out from the Swedish Government in 1965 when they took over ownership of the Castle.
Stenhammar Castle is located in Södermanland, just outside of Flen.

I actually live quite near Stenhammar Castle! I have never seen any royal there myself, but i know many people that have met the king and queen when they have strolled the grounds. But they are almost never there, not even once a year... it´s a shame i think. The castle just lie there not open to the puplic, they can´t open it beacuse of the will that says who is to have right to use the castle.

I absolutely agree! It's such a shame, Stenhammar seems to be such a wonderful place, an excellent get-away retreat place!

But I also think it's a shame that they don't use much of the other Royal Palaces either, when the royal children were younger they used to spend time at Tullgarn Palace (I think it was) for ex around Christmas time - but now they just stick to their home (Drottningholm) and their workplace (the Royal Palace of Stockholm)…

According to some people in the area where I live (near Stenhammar) the King was here about a week ago, at Stenhammar to inspect a building site. And he was apparently in a very good mood asking a lot of questions.

It's not mentioned as a Royal Palace along with the other official Royal Residences that one can find on the official website, so it's not counted along with the other official Royal Residences, but Stenhammar is a residence of the King (by lease from the State in accordance with the testament and last will of the last private owner) and as such it's of course also some kind of "Royal Residence".

The king is interested in farming and is breeding cows at Stenhammar.

Stenhammar castle and the estate of about 2000 hectares land was donated to the state by a private person who decided that it could only be rented by a prince of Sweden with preference to the duke of Sörmland. Since the annual rent was set in the will it is now very favourable.

Before the king, prince Wilhelm used Stenhammar as his residence. People say the reason he did not marry his lady was that by loosing his title he would also loose Stenhammar.

The Keeper of the Privy Purse Jan Lindman from the court told in last week's Svensk Damtidning, that after the renovation of Stenhammar Castle last year, a lot of private furniture was taken there. The royal family has a lot of personal property we are trying to use, tells Lindman. Nowadays the Castle has been divided into two sections: at the first there is the private area and also the partly private area, which can be used for representation, just like at Haga. At the other part there is the office of Stenhammars Godsförvaltning and room for the researchers from the University of the Agricultural Sciences. Lindman says that there hasn't been made any decision when Carl Philip will get the lease of Stenhammar or move there.

The King has never made any secret of his farmer's dream and Stenhammar Castle in Sörmland has become his sanctuary. There he has in recent years implemented a comprehensive renovation of over 31 million, and in the courtyard, extensive farming operations. Now the king is buying about 80 pcs of cattle to Stenhammar of race Simmental. Simmental cattle are a versatile breed of cattle originating in the valley of the Simme River, in the Bernese Oberland of western Switzerland. Mikael Jansson from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences confirms that the king is buying cattle and that they can cost from 10 000 up to over 100 000 per animal.
- The King is very involved in the operation of Stenhammar. Both in terms of agriculture and animals, says Margareta Thorgren from the press department.

The will of the last owner of Stenhammar authorizes the state to lease it for life to any prince belonging to the Royal House who has succession rights to the throne. A Duke of Södermanland, if he wishes to lease the property, takes priority over the other candidates.

Quote:

Efter min hustrus död skola samtliga hemman och hemmansdelar med tillhörande byggnader av staten varje gång på livstid utarrenderas på efterskrivna villkor åt någon svensk undersåte varande prins av det regerande konungahuset, vilken har eventuell arvsrätt till tronen.

Finnes vid något utarrenderingstillfälle någon svensk undersåte varande, eventuell arvsrätt till tronen ägande, prins av det regerande konungahuset, som är hertig av Södermanland, så äger han företrädesrätt till arrendet, om han eller hans målsman så önskar.
Stenhammar was leased first to Prince Wilhelm, Duke of Södermanland (1884-1965), and secondly to then Crown Prince Carl Gustaf, Duke of Jämtland. After the king's death, Prince Alexander will have the best claim to Stenhammar, not because he is the king's male-line grandson, but because he was created Duke of Södermanland. If he chooses not to lease Stenhammar, Prince Carl Philip and Prince Oscar (and Prince Nicolas if he has not lost his succession rights) will have equally strong claims.

Aftonbladet's article from yesterday:

Prince Carl Philip may lose the Stenhammar Castle - son may have priority

Prince Carl Philip has probably been in order to lease the castle after his parents but now the king has given his latest grandchild the priority.
Stenhammar Castle in Flen in Södermanland is not owned, but rented by the king.
According to Robert von Kraemer's will the lease right belongs to "a prince of the royal family with the eventual succession to the throne".
Therefore Prince Carl Philip should stand in line. But no, it is not obvious. According to the will the prince of the royal family, who is Duke of Södermanland owns a preferential right to lease if he or his parent or guardian wishes. The King announced last week that Prince Alexander is the new Duke of Sodermanland.
According to the testament, the parents have the right to put their vetoes regarding Stenhammar until the Duke comes of age.
So the question is what happens to Stenhammar when the king passes away.
If Prince Alexander has become of age, he can be the one to decide who will get to lease the castle.
- One can say congratulations to Alexander, formally he prevails at the next lease parcel, that is, when the king dies. But as it is in the testament, if he himself or his guardian, that is to say Carl Philip agrees, says author and journalist Herman Lindqvist.
But Stenhammar's future could be decided during the current lease period.
- The King can write his own kind of will, but probably the king wants prince Alexander to take over because he has made him the duke. I can imagine that the King writes a will that Carl Philip will take over until Alexander comes of age. But this is unique and exclusive, I don't know any other royal thing reserved to a duke, Lindqvist says.
There's two other princes, too?
- Yes, but they are not dukes of Södermanland.
The court can't tell if there is any thought about what will happen to Stenhammar in the future.
- There is surely, but there is nothing that the court can explain, says Margareta Thorgren.
Is there any interest from Crown Princess Victoria that Prince Oscar will take over Stenhammar?
- What we can conclude is that Stenhammar is a place that the king really likes and he has interest concerning animals, nature and agriculture issues together with Prince Carl Philip.
So the idea is that Carl Philip will take over?
- No, I haven't said that. What we can say is that Stenhammar means a lot to the king, and interest in agricultural issues is something he shares with his son.
Thorgren doesn't know if the king is aware about these things in the will regarding who has the right to Stenhammar.
Footnote: Aftonbladet has tried to get lawyers at the National Property Board to interpret the will but they announce that they currently see no reason to interpret the parts of the testament's conditions regarding future tenants.

Since the number of dukedoms is limited (the 25 traditional provinces, or "landskap"), sooner or later the King would have been forced to give away the Dukedom of Södermanland and the rights to Stenhammar. In this way, it stays in Carl Philip's family. It probably was the King's plan all along.

LadyFinn 06-24-2016 12:57 AM

The king bought 90 cows of the Swiss Simmental breed and a number of calves. Price: 1 350 000 SEK.
The cows are not really new, but are already in the herd at the Stenhammar Castle.
The animals have to date been on ''deposit'' by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, on the estate run by the king by Stenhammar Estate Management. The University has in turn used them for research purposes.
The castle's profile is meat production. The animals often graze on natural land with little forest surrounding the estate and the castle.
- We have kept the animals for consistent access for research. At the agreement was a clause that said that the cows could be transferred. And it has now been made, said the court's treasurer Jan Lindman.
The cows are passed to king about ten days.
- Payment for the animals is made on the last of June, says Lindman.
- The purchase price was 1 350 000 SEK, a sum that both parties are happy with, says Mikael Jansson, press officer at the University.
Lindman is well versed in the royal meat production and cooperation with the University
The University's research on the royal cows continues, says Lindman.
Simmental breed originally comes from a valley in Switzerland with the same name and is a combined dairy and beef cattle. The breed is considered one of the world's most widespread breed and number of animals is estimated at over 40 million.
