Picture of the christening cradle used for Madeleine, Leonore, Nicolas, Oscar and Alexander in Drottningholm Slott.

Aret Med Kungafamiljen 1977 in English subtitles state that Victoria laid in it after her baptism but I have no information on that and her cradle was different

I just think it's a beautiful piece.

I did not think they gave anyone access to their private little garden. This is from interview though

Ekerövägen, road 261, just outside the Drottningholm Palace area will be broadened and bus files should be built to provide increased accessibility. During the road work period, accessibility to Drottningholm Palace can be severely restricted.
- Big construction projects, of course, are likely to interfere with the business, but I'm not so worried. The road needs to be rebuilt and we will solve any problems that may arise for visitors going to Drottningholm, says Staffan Larsson, Governor of the Royal Palaces.
Among other things, the entrances to Drottningholm must be relocated, according to information given to Expressen.
- It is true that the entrance to Drottningholm needs to be reviewed. How the exact design becomes, we may return to.
An option to ensure that tourists can still visit Drottningholm is to increase the density of boat trips to the Palace.
- It's something we have discussed to solve any possible interference that may occur along the way.

An article in Svensk Damtidning about the Drottningholm Palace Park, in their series of royal gardens.
In 1998 in the garden started the work to replace the old linden trees with new ones, and the work continued until May 2011, when king Carl Gustaf planted the first tree to leg 5 in the restoration.
Drottningholm is Sweden's oldest sculpture park. There are 46 sculptures.

De Vries Day today at Drottningholm
Take the chance to see the world’s largest collection of Adriaen de Vries sculptures. The museum at Drottningholm has on display a unique collection of sculptures by the Dutch sculptor de Vries.
The collection of sculptures from Adriaen de Vries (1556–1626) can be seen at the old Dragoon Stables from the 1700s at Drottningholm.
The bronze sculptures, dating back to the beginning of the 1600s, were brought to Sweden as booty and were eventually placed in the Drottningholm Palace park.
Today these sculptures have been replaced by modern bronze casts and the originals can be seen at the Museum De Vries. The museum contains the world's largest collection of Adriaen De Vries' work.

The Palace guard arrested two after a drone flight over Drottningholm
Two people were arrested after they had flown a drone over Drottningholm Palace on Sunday afternoon.
The police got the alarm about the suspected drone flight at 15.22.
- It was staff that apprehended two people, says Towe Hägg at the police regional management center.
According to Aftonbladet, the two persons are foreign citizens and have flown with a drone over the Palace area.
The Palace guard, employed by the Armed Forces, summoned the police.
- We have two people arrested for violation of the protective law. They will now be heard and then we contact a prosecutor who decide if they will be arrested or not, says Towe Hägg.
Margareta Thorgren states that the king was informed of the incident.
- In all events that are extraordinary, even in this case, we provide information.
Drottningholm Palace is a protected object, it is not allowed to fly drones over it.
- The intervention is routine on such occasions, says Thorgren.

It would seem that drones could provide a significant threat to security in the future for all the royals, airports etc.

Evert Lundquist day
Sunday May 19 is open house in Evert Lundquist's studio. Take the opportunity to visit the studio in Drottningholm Palace Park, which remains as the artist left it in 1993, a year before his death.

Photo from the Instagram of Håkan Groth, a swedish born antique dealer and expert, author and photographer.

This is the largest of the chandeliers that hung in the Ballroom at the Stockholm Royal Palace. It would have been made in the second half of the 1840s, but I haven’t been able to find out by whom or where.
It has been restored in recent times and is now hanging in the Royal Chapel in Drottningholm Palace.

Two cast iron urns have been stolen from Drottningholm Palace on Ekerö. The theft occurred sometime during the night between Monday 19 November and Tuesday 20 November.
The urns are described as invaluable.
Alarm service now urges the public to keep an eye on the urns. Anyone who may have any information to help bring the urn back to their place outside the Palace is asked to contact the police on 114 14.
According to the court, two Hedvig Eleonora urns have been stolen.
- It is very sad that such thefts occur. The king's will is that parks should be a place for the public to walk freely on, explains Margareta Thorgren.
Två urnor försvunna från Drottningholms slott

How the royal couple reacted?
- The royal couple, yes also the others in the royal family, are informed. Of course, they think this is very sad, says Margareta Thorgren.
- Well, it's not the originals from the 17th century that are gone, but two copies made in 1988. But these urns are still invaluable. The theft is reported to the police, of course, and the case is handed over to the police.
These urns must be extremely heavy?
- Yes, these are objects that are very difficult to move on their own.

Ehrenstrahl Drawing Room in 360°
The Ehrenstrahl Drawing Room is named after its many paintings by court painter David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl. Click on the image above to start the tour and experience the art in the grand state room.
Ehrenstrahl's paintings depict important events in the life of Queen Hedvig Eleonora and her son Karl XI in the form of allegories. In the virtual tour the allegories are explained.
The tour also shows French rococo chairs, Chinese porcelain and a rococo clock.
The Ehrenstrahl Drawing Room can be visited during Drottningholm Palace's regular opening hours, but also with this 360° tour.

The State Bedchamber in 360°
Hedvig Eleonora’s State Bedchamber is one of of Drottningholms Palace's highlights. Experience one of Sweden’s grandest Baroque rooms in 360°.
Influenced by French prototype, the palace was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder by commission of Queen Hedvig Eleonora.
The splendour of the royal palaces became a way to confirm the power of the monarch. One room that exudes power throughout is Hedvig Eleonora’s State Bedchamber. The entire room is full of symbols of royal power, but there is also a more personal message.
