Expressen's royal commentator Karin Lennmor writes about Solliden at her chronicle.
Lennmor writes that in the summer of 1973, 44 years ago, Silvia visited Solliden for the first time - and she became very fond of it and loves Öland as much as the rest of the family.
- The air is so soft here, she said.
At one point, the Queen told Lennmor that the king is very fond of paintings by artist Roland Svensson. He painted a lot of archipelago motifs, and maybe many of his paintings hang on not only in Drottningholm, but also in Solliden.

Here we can see Solliden Palace, Kavaljershuset (where Carl Philip and Madeleine stay with their families), Victoria and Daniel's house Villa Skönvik, and the boat house.

Video from Solliden. 24Kalmar visited Solliden some days ago. Anna Schibli, the Operational Manager for Tourism at Solliden, told them about the park. Anna tells that the royal family often stays at Solliden ten weeks during the year. Queen Silvia loves the roses and fuchsias, and king Carl Gustaf is more interested about taking care of the park in its entirety. So if they want to make a bigger change at the park, they must always ask from the king.

Solliden Palace published these photos as a slideshow at their Facebook on 24th October
"A cold October day, we are dreaming going back to summer. Red geraniums light up the Palace and the royal family comes down to the Palace staircase, with a whiff from the crowd. In other words, we long for the summer of 2018. Do you?"

Someone has stolen a flower pot from Solliden's Kaffetorpet (Cottage Café)

From Solliden Palace Facebook, 10th November.
"Hello
We are looking for a similar pot as at the photo, we think someone has "accidentally" taken the pot home. We understand that sometimes you can take things with you "by accident", but we would be extremely grateful and happy if we got the pot back. Bring it back gladly outside of Kaffetorpet or inform us that you have "accidentally" taken the pot home with you."

Beautiful! Love those leaden skies, mainly because of how cozy it is inside, with candle light, and twinkly lights, and fireplaces. Add in good cooking smells from the kitchen.

This year's exhibition at Solliden Palace:
Karl XIV Johan - The King who built the new Sweden.
"In the exhibition we get a glimpse of Karl XIV Johan's bed chamber. In 1818, Karl Johan bought Älvdalen's porphyry, and here we also see some of the magnificent porphyry urns produced there. The exhibition also tells about his influence on Swedish business and cultural life", says Curator of the Royal Collections Kerstin Hagsgård.
The exhibition and the park will open this year on May 10th, at. 11:00.

Would love to see this exhibit! This intrigues me: " 'The exhibition also tells about his impact on Swedish nutritional and cultural life,' says Kerstin Hagsgård, curator."

At court Instagram
Since the early 1900's, the royal family has spent their summers on Öland. In the coming week, we will publish pictures from Solliden, taken from the Bernadotte Library's photo archive.
The Solliden Palace was built as a summer residence for Sweden's future Queen Victoria and was completed in 1906. The Queen suffered from bad health and sought a place where she could escape from the big city. On Öland, she found a climate that alleviated her pains and an environment that gave her peace and quiet.
The first photo shows the Palace during the construction in 1905. Building materials were transported over Kalmarsund to Solliden's newly landed port and then transported to the building in small railway wagons. The railway tracks are seen in the foreground. The Swedish-Norwegian Union flag crowns the building.
In the second photo, Crown Prince Victoria is seen in Öland dress, photographed in the summer of 1906.

Another photo from court Instagram, today:
Here you can see the Palace around 1910. Today the trees in the park around the Palace have grown up, but 100 years ago it looked different. The park has a so-called "rock garden", which was popular in the parks of the past. Photo from photo archive of the Bernadotte Library.
https://www.instagram.com/p/Bk972JPH...-by=kungahuset

The court publishes this week photos from Solliden at their Instagram. The photos are from photo archive of the Bernadotte Library.
Queen Victoria died in 1930. She left Solliden in her will to her husband Gustaf V. Gustaf V opened the Palace park to public, he had Mainau as a model.
In this photo from the end of 1940's are King Gustaf V and princess Sibylla with princesses Birgitta, Margaretha, Christina and Désirée and prince Carl Gustaf.
