I posted the message below in another forum, but I guess this is a more appropriate place for it.


King Karl XIII was responsible, I believe, for transferring the Crown Estate to the Swedish state in 1809 in exchange for the so-called "royal right of disposal" (den kungliga dispositionsrätten).

Could anyone please comment on that arrangement and what the right of disposal actually covers and entails ?

The Royal right of disposal covers 11 Royal palaces and Royal Djurgården. Djurgården is one of the main islands that make up Stockholm and is made up of public parks, an amusement park, an exclusive enclave of residential houses, several large villas and a few museums. The Royal Mews and a residential property opposite the Royal Palace (inhabited by among others Princess Christina & her husband) are also included in the right of disposal.
The Royal right of disposal, which is confirmed by Parliament every time a new monarch accedes to the throne, means that the monarch doesn't own any of the properties involved but has the right of disposal for themself and their family. Core members of the Royal House has traditionally been provided housing and transportation by the state. The properties involved are state property and 9 of the Royal palaces are administered by Statens fastighetsverk (The National Property Board) while Royal Djurgården together with the Rosendal and Haga palaces are administered by Kungliga Djurgårdsförvaltningen (The Royal Djurgården Administration Board). The right of disposal also means that the different rental properties on the estates of the palaces and Djurgården is mainly inhabited by employees of the court for the duration of their employment or other persons close to the court and the Royal family.

Visits to the Royal Palaces increase again
Visitors are coming again and save the economy for the royal palaces.
The annual report for The finances of the Palace Administration shows a small surplus.
When the King takes a look at the accounting for the various operations, it looks better for 2019 than the year before. However, it continues to go a little heavy on The finances of the Palace Administration whose business is to care for and maintain the royal palaces, movables and display activities linked to the palaces. But it goes in the right direction and for 2019 a small, small is reported surplus of SEK 125,000, which is to be compared with a minus of 5.8 million for 2018.
This is stated in The finances of the Palace Administration's annual report for 2019.
- Revenue goes up by about 15 million. The explanation for this is that we have had a lot of visitors to the Palaces. The year before was a hot summer that negatively impacted the visits, especially for the smaller Palaces, says director Jan Lindman (treasurer).
SEK 125,000 sounds a bit like surplus?
- Yes, overtime, it is important to have a surplus to be able to reinvest and maintain. In the long run, there should be a larger surplus than we have today, but we are currently in an investment period, says Jan Lindman.
By far the largest visitor destination is the Royal Palace, followed by Drottningholm Palace.
The annual report for The finances of the Royal Djurgården Administration shows that operations went back by 11 million which is to be compared with almost 39 million in loss in 2018. The year before, the profit was close to 20 million SEK.
One of the major investments last year at Djurgården was Folke Bernadotte's bridge over Djurgårdsbrunnsviken, which was inaugurated in September. The cost for 2019 was 13 million for the bridge.
- No money may go out from Djurgården's operations. All surpluses and deficits must be managed at Djurgården. The important thing for Djurgården is that it should go well and beautify Djurgården in the long run. They have a very long-term view of their results and they have large real estate investments. This means that the result fluctuates up and down a lot, says Jan Lindman.

Svensk Damtidning has at this week's issue an article about Villa Fridhem, which was prince Carl and princess Ingeborg's summer residence, built in 1909.
Princess Ingeborg celebrated her 75th birthday there in 1953. It became the last summer at Villa Fridhem which then was sold to Östergötland County Council. There was convalescent center for 35 years before it became privately owned in 1987. Now it is a hotel (53 rooms and a suite), restaurant and conference center.
In 1994, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited Villa Fridhem together with King Albert and Queen Paula of Belgium.
Princess Estelle, the duchess of Östergötland, has visited Villa Fridhem two times at private visits. In 2016 she was there with her father and inaugurated a new suite, which was later named Princess Estelle's suite. In 2017, the crown princess family visited Villa Fridhem. Estelle bathed in the indoor pool and wrote her autograph with large, bold letters in the hotel's guestbook. Villa Fridhem also has a cute old princess' playhouse, where Estelle played.
- It's a wonderful family and fantastic people, says Sofia Regnander and Magnus Dahlin, the hotel's manager and director.

The royal palaces will close temporarily
In connection with the current situation regarding the spread of the new coronavirus, HM The King has decided that public operations at the royal palaces should be closed temporarily.
This decision applies from 21 March until further notice, depending on ongoing developments. As before, pre-booked group tours, talks and other programme activities are cancelled.
“This is a safety precaution in view of the development of coronavirus,” explains Governor of the Royal Palaces Staffan Larsson. “The situation means that it is impossible for us to carry out public operations at the royal palaces. We are monitoring developments, and look forward to welcoming our visitors back as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will be working to make our exhibitions and palaces more accessible via our digital channels. The royal parks will also remain open, unless we announce otherwise.”

To mark WWF's global climate campaign, Earth Hour, the floodlighting will be turned off at several of the royal palaces on Saturday 28 March between 20:30 and 21:30.
Those palaces that have floodlighting – the Royal Palace of Stockholm, Drottningholm Palace, Gripsholm Castle, Strömsholm Palace and Ulriksdal Palace – will turn this lighting off during Earth Hour.
At the Royal Palace of Stockholm, the lights will also be turned off in the Outer and Inner Courtyards and in the official rooms.
For safety reasons, however, the park lighting and street lighting will not be turned off at Drottningholm Palace and Gripsholm Castle, or on Royal Djurgården

Svensk Damtidning doesn't mention Madeleine's home in Florida and Victoria and Daniel's summer house in Acktjära, which is beside the Westling's old house, which Olle Westling has owned since 1967. In 2006 a house and a smaller house for the bodyguards was built close to Westling's red old house.

It's remarkable that Prince Carl Philip enjoys the largest number of private residences among the king's children despite being one of two spares in his generation (Stenhammar can in effect be added to his list as the king has indicated that he should take over the lease). Will all of the said properties remain with his eventually non-royal descendants, or will any of them return to the royal family in due course?

Since Carl Philip owns all these houses, it seems likely that he leaves them to his descendants in his will, and they will never return to the royal family. He inherited Villa Solbacken from prince Bertil. The house in Ökenäs he inherited from Bertil Jonsén. The lodge in Sunne, Värmland, he got as a christening gift. King Carl Gustaf bought right after that a house near Carl Philip's lodge, but has sold it in 2014.
And would the other members of the royal family be interested in these houses?

The royal parks are open
Royal Djurgården and the royal parks are open every day of the year, 24 hours a day – even during these unusual times. The large parks have plenty of outdoor space, and are easy to get to.
The royal palaces are temporarily closed due to coronavirus and its effects, but Royal Djurgården and the other royal parks in Stockholm and Mälardalen are open as usual. These parks have been places for recreation and meeting others for centuries.
There are several royal parks around Stockholm and Mälardalen, including the World Heritage Site of Drottningholm, Ulriksdal, Tullgarn, Gripsholm, Rosersberg and Strömsholm. They all have their own unique characters and histories.
So get out and enjoy yourself, while paying attention to the Public Health Agency of Sweden's advice. Remember to keep dogs on a lead, and dispose of your litter properly. Always leave the park as you would like to find it!
