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.

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.
