Haga Palace: Fit for a Newlywed Couple

  April 23, 2009 at 7:07 am by

It was revealed today by the Royal Court that Crown Princess Victoria and her fiancé, Daniel Westling, will settle and raise their future family in the Haga Palace.

The Swedish Government, which previously had the right to use the Palace, made the decision today to return the Palace to King Carl XVI Gustaf for his personal use. The King in turn offered use of the Palace to his eldest daughter, who accepted the generous offer.

No date has been decided for when the pair will move into the Palace.

Haga Palace was built in the early 1800s, commissioned by King Gustav IV Adolf for the use of his family. It was here that the current King, his parents and four elder sisters lived until Prince Gustav Adolf’s untimely death in 1947. Rights to use the Palace were transferred to the Swedish Government in 1966 by King Gustav VI Adolf. Haga Palace lies in the grounds of Haga Park, in the municipality of Solna.
