I have to smile at the photo of Rio on the chair. It seems even royal pets get on the furniture.

I love the beautiful tappestry or art behind her in the final photo.

Straight Person of the Year? - Well, I must look up, what the Swedish wording was!

ADDED: I did. And was surprised. Such a category never occurred to me.

The twigs in the window needs to be shortened, but perhaps the children collected them, in which case they must stay.

Calm, soothing colors.
Not much to point your finger at.

I see I am not alone in thinking the title of the award was a bit odd. Usually it would be something like LGBTQ advocate of the year or ally of the year.

The twigs are lovely but agree they do look like they could poke out an eye.

I must admit I like Haga. A mix of some classic furniture and a bit more modern comfort in areas, neutral with lovely pops of color.

Off topic as it's not interior decoration related (please mods don't kill me ) but since you two brought it up QX magazine hands out several awards each year of which two are Hetero of the year and HBTQ of the year. To become Hetero of the year you don't have to be a LGBTQIA+ advocate (although several has been), it's enough to be someone who for instance has brought joy to or put the spotlight on aspects of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The first one is really cute with Victoria sitting on her desk and the dog watching.

I can remember that there once pictures released/made of CP Mette-Marit in her office, at her desk. Does anyone know which pictures I mean?

Let's have a closer look in the more personal rooms of Huis Ten Bosh:

First King WA's Office: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

A second view: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

Light and yet with a good contrast. Modern yet a little traditional in style. Furnished yet not cluttered with stuff.

There is a painting of 1600 (+/- 50 years) guy next to the desk. An inspiration?

We can clearly see how high King WA can reach...

Nice view from the desk.

There is an odd thingy in the ceiling though.

With photos of his wife and children having a prominent place. I think the blue rhino is a Maxima. Or perhaps a present from his children.

I think I could work there. - After having repainted the nicotine-colored walls!

------------------------
Then we have Queen Maxima's office:
https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0
Another view: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0
A third look: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

Interesting wallpaper, but certainly better than curry-colored!

Not sure what I think of the blue-whatever-it-is over the mantel-piece. Seems out of place IMO.
I seriously like the table and the chairs!

The buro in the corner is a really nice antique piece.

The curtains are light and different and it works.

But the light-horror in the ceiling must die!

Is Queen Maxima's office facing a public area, since there appears to be a privacy-screen on the the window?

That 'inspirational figure' is Willem van Oranje (24 April 1533 – 10 July 1584; so with your '+/- 50 years' you are within the right timeframe), also known as William the Silent, the founder of the dynasty.

There isn't a public area at Huis ten Bosch. All areas are far away from prying eyes. However, it could be that Máxima's is at the front where some visitors or workers might pass, while Willem-Alexander's is in the the back with a nice view of their garden.

Muhler, those walls of W-A's study seem to be covered in velvet, so perhaps very expensive to change! The first photo shows the room and colors to better advantage, IMO.

Screenshots, queen Silvia at the so called summer dining room at Drottningholm Palace. It is said to be one of queen Silvia's favourite rooms at the Palace.

I can well understand it is.
A thoroughly historical room and lots of light from the windows.
- But... Where is Queen Silvia herself, in this room? I can't see her touch anywhere.

This is a rare glimpse into the interior of the Hunting Lodge at trend in DK: https://app.box.com/s/14c21dzlqnz42ygur54x99mwjgiz65u1

I like it. There is a good contrast between the white walls and the dark wooden ceiling. Combined with lamps all over the place it provides a cozy atmosphere even in daytime.
It's a den. A cave to cuddle up in while the rain drums against the windows and it's pitch-dark outside.
These days it's mainly M&F and children who use the hunting lodge, but QMII also go there from time to time, and she (and PH) have left their mark. - Just observe the pillow next to QMII. The Dachshunds.
Who knows, when M&F take over in earnest, there may be pillows with border collies...

And we have another rare look from the DRF:
https://app.box.com/s/ughu9e5tr6l7y5ccjctoa8vl8a7ppvko

This time the inside of the Royal Salon Car. The royal train wagon if you will.
The other day QMII took the train to an exhibition. It is of course even more comfortable than sitting in a car, especially if you want to have a chat and cup of coffee and what not with your sister.
So far it's practically only QMII who use this mode of transport, so the interior is made to suit her taste in regards to colors, material, lamps and fabric.
There isn't much of a personal touch because it is after all only a mode of transport and it's rare a train-ride in DK lasts much more than four hours.

I like the table. It's quality and good taste.

Notice the ashtray.
There are advantages in being Queen.

Hello Magazine pointed out that this is a 'new look' into princess Beatrice's home (in St James Palace).

This photo has baffled quite a few people.
https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6...c1&oe=612618C2
It shows Princess Benedikte watching the Olympics from inside Schloss Berleburg.

People have wondered whether it was a hotel room, because it looks very spartan, but it has been confirmed that this is from Berleburg.

It does indeed look very little homely to me and very functional only. It's a place where you crash for the night and leave again early the next morning.
It is about as bland, cold, soulless and uninviting as it can be, IMO.
Schloss Berleburg is large enough to easily have several dedicated TV-rooms on each floor! (Even though admittedly most of the place is closed down) And the adjacent building where Benedikte lives isn't exactly small. So I have no idea what's going on here.

The chair doesn't look very comfortable for watching TV and maybe its in her office?

People seem to be missing that it says that she's watching the competitions at some friend's house. Many older ladies I know prefer a hard chair over a softer one.

The Noblesse & Royautés website shows the same picture with the caption "From the castle of Berleburg in Germany, Princess Benedikte of Denmark follows the competitions of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Her daughter Princess Nathalie de Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg is the coach of the Danish dressage team."
Benedikte de Danemark suit les JO de Tokyo – Noblesse & Royautés
To me it looks like Benedikte is in a rather bare storage room. Funny considering this thread is about personal interior. decoration

Well, the purpose of this thread was to peek into areas where the royals actually live, and have decorated, furnished and influenced themselves.
For whatever reason Benedikte decided to watch TV in this room of all places.
- Your attic, storage room or larder also says something about you.
