There was a fire at smaller cellar space at Haga Palace today. The alarm started automatically at 11.31. When the fire brigade came there was both flames and smoke at the basement room.
Margareta Thorgren tells:
- I got the information that there was some smoke at a boiler room. The fire fighting has gone well and the crown princess family was not at home at that moment. They are informed.
The crown princess family was at work and preschool and are expected to return home today. The reason of the fire is still unclear. The police is expected to make a technical investigation at the site.

Articles at the swedish press about Haga Palace, at Aftonbladet today and at the newest issue of Aftonbladet's Gala Magazine.

At Aftonbladet
Welcome home to the Crown Princess family
A real family idyll - 41 rooms and kitchen
When Victoria and Daniel married on June 19, 2010, the renovation was not yet complete, so after the honeymoon they lived still at the two-room at Drottningholm. But just a couple of months later, they moved to more spatial Haga Palace with its 41 rooms, 13 bathrooms and guest toilets and two kitchens, all on a surface of 1,550 sqm.
You can imagine yourself, how easy is it to decorate a 1550 sqm Palace that will both function as a representation and as a private residence. Interior designer Helena Belfrage was commissioned to design Haga Palace together with the Royal Collections. Absolutely not only with precious heirlooms, it would be a comfortable and practical home for a young family with hectic professional life, the Crown Princess couple decided.
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel have not invited everyone to their home, showed it to us. In the part of the palace that is their private, no photographers are let in, but on some occasions they have shown up the representation part, which also it is extremely cozy. The photographing usually show five rooms towards Brunnsviken, with the grand room in the middle, the living room to the north and the library and dining room to the south.
The large entrance is tastefully furnished, a bit of a luxurious waiting room. How to get the huge stone table in place is a mystery, it must weigh a ton. A bit cute is that the two pictures that hang on the wall, taken by photographer Rolf Turander, refer to the background of the Crown Princess couple. One with motif from Drottningholm Palace Park, the other over a beautiful lake outside Prince Daniel's home town of Ockelbo.
The grand room got a new look when the king's parents moved there. The tiled stove disappeared and was replaced by the magnificent fireplace that is crowned with the Bernadotte and Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha's coat of arms. At that time, it was the family's private living room.
Today's living room is cozy and bright, with a soft carpet and a lovely long inviting sofa filled with velvet pads. The Italian table comes from Nordiska Galleriet and over it the ceiling lamp "Hollywood" dangles in modern style in contrast to all antique crystal chandeliers. Photographer Turander is also represented here with beautiful pictures of unique books from the Bernadotte Library. Also on the walls are lovely black-and-white pictures of the king as a little prince and his grandfather, old king Gustaf VI Adolf.
At the time of the king's parents, the library was the king's father's workroom. One of the paintings immediately gets our attention, a painting of the palace and its surroundings from the beginning of the 19th century. The books that fill the shelves do not seem to be something that the Crown Princess couple is browsing everyday, beautiful older leather bands, but of course it is also a representation floor.
Something that required a lot of effort to renovate was the well-known architect Carl Hårleman's fantastic square-patterned oak parquet, which was originally located at Fredrikshov castle. Parts of it were carefully removed to be repaired at the workshop, others could be renovated on site. The result was not a floor that looked completely new, just as planned, it appears that the floor is worn after generations' steps over the oak parquet.
The dining room is a real pastry in different shades of blue. Chairs dressed in beautifully royal deep blue, walls patterned in blue and perfectly draped curtains in light blue. As the icing on the cake the wonderful crowned double mirror doors and the glitter from Brunnsviken outside.

As every summer, Victoria and Daniel have had sheep at Haga Palace Park this summer too.
Helene Hellmark Knutsson, a member of Parliament and former minister, published this photo at her Instagram a week ago
"Nice company of royal sheep on the run in Haga Park today"

Other then new lamps, it seems they de-personalized it. The table behind them, and the middle book shelf use to be filled with personal photos. Now the photos are all gone. It felt more homey with the frames.

Two of the paintings which Victoria and Daniel have at the official rooms at Haga Palace:

King Gustav IV Adolf and queen Fredrika Dorotea Vilhelmina, painted by Jonas Forsslund (Haga Palace was built in 1802 according to a design by architect Carl Christoffer Gjörwell, who was commissioned by Gustav IV Adolf.)

Both paintings are loaned from the Nationalmuseum's collections.

When Victoria gave her speech at the Rare Diseases conference, we saw again a small glimpse of Haga Palace. Behind her is the library.

In the spring 2010 the royal court told about the planting made at Haga Palace:
New trees and shrubs are now being planted in Haga Park, including lime, yew, jasmine, rhododendrons of different colours and small lilacs. The planting is intended both to make the park more attractive and to give the Crown Princess Couple more privacy at Haga Palace.

Kvänum’s first job as Official Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden was to install kitchen, bathroom, and storage cabinetry in the Haga Palace.

In this photo we can see how close Haga Palace is to Gustav III's Pavilion. To the right is the fence of Haga Palace and part of the outbuilding can be seen.

The royal family's friends Pierre Hagströmer and Peter Ravén ordered a work of prince Bertil and princess Lilian from swedish artist Fabian Edelstam, as a wedding gift to Victoria and Daniel. Victoria got very touched when they got the present.

The art work has been at the veranda of Haga Palace.

Edelstam's technique: he chooses a picture of importance to him (it can be stamp, an old photograph, a bank note or any similar object), then he forms a rough idea of what he is going to do with it. Afterwards he decides the size he wants to put it in, puts it on the computer, prints it, chooses the canvas then starts to cut it into squares and reconstructs the picture.
