The Royal Collections have grown over a period of more than 400 years, from the time of King Gustav Vasa to the present day. They include everything from humble utensils to decorative pieces of international significance.
The Royal Collections include the Swedish Regalia – the principal symbols of the monarchy – which are on display in the Treasuryopens in new window at the Royal Palace.
The Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace contains the Bernadotte Dynasty's books, from King Karl XIV Johan to King Gustaf VI Adolf and their queens.
The Office of the Royal Collections manages and cares for the Royal Collections.

Louis Masreliez's first royal interior design assignment for Gustav III is style-forming and constitutes one of the first painted interiors in Sweden in the Late Gustavian style that is sometimes called "Pompeian". Director of the Royal Collections Margareta Nisser-Dalman takes us into the room.

Culture Night
Come behind the scenes at the Royal Palace. This year's digital Culture Night includes a visit to the Hall of Mirrors, which is not normally on show, and the chance to get to know Crown Princess Margareta – a princess ahead of her time.
In the Hall of Mirrors, which was also part of Crown Princess Margareta's apartments, exhibition curator Bronwyn Griffith will talk about "Daisy", The King's grandmother.
An exhibition about Crown Princess Margareta will open in these rooms this summer*, and on Culture Night we can get an exclusive preview!
The Hall of Mirrors. The film about "Daisy" from the Hall of Mirrors will be available on Kulturnatt Stockholm's Play service at Kulturnattstockholm.se from 18:00 on 24 April and for one week afterwards.

At Instagram of the Royal Palaces

Welcome to the Royal Palace
Palace architect Nicodemus Tessin younger gave the Royal Palace's two large stairwells in the eastern and western lengths a powerful design that was completed by Carl Hårleman. The two stairwells, together with the southern vault, were the interiors that Ticino declared he was most pleased with, even though he only saw them at the drawing stage. The color scheme of the stairwell is dominated by the red-brown limestone from Öland, the green marble from the balustrades from Kolmården and the painted marble imitation of the walls. The western staircase, here in the picture, is decorated with several sculptures, including John Börjeson's portrait bust of the palace architect Nicodemus Tessin younger from 1886. Here you can also see perspective paintings by Domenico Francia in the 1740s and ceilings by Julius Kronberg in the 1890s. The lantern groups seen in the picture are from the middle of the 18th century by Jacques Philippe Bouchardon after models by Carl Hårleman and Jean Eric Rehn. They are considered to be inspired by the lantern groups of Vienna's Belvedere and Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini's cupboards in St. Peter's Church.

The National Property Board Sweden SFV about the renovation of the Royal Palace

Now in November, the eighth stage in the renovation of the Royal Palace's facades has been completed. It is the central part of the western façade that is now finished. On this part of the façade, the nine relief medallions with the royal portraits at the top can now be seen again, and the ten beautiful caryatids, the five-meter-high female sculptures, look out over the outer courtyard again. The castle's new, warm pink color is also better visible now that the plastic over the middle part has been removed.
- It has been great, says Magnus Roos, project manager at the Swedish Property Agency. Despite the pandemic, we have managed everything according to plan and are in phase.
Now the renovation of the palace's southern length awaits towards Slottsbacken. In January – February next year, new scaffolding will be erected and work will begin again in March 2022. The ongoing facade restoration of Stockholm Palace is the largest in modern times and will be completed in 2050.
https://www.facebook.com/statensfast...type=3&theater

The Hall of State at the Royal Palace, designed by architect Carl Hårleman after Tessin the Younger's drawings, is located in the palace's southern length. It was built for the county parliament and inaugurated in 1755. Here the parliament and the king gathered for votes and debates.
Despite the fact that the Riksdag moved to Riddarholmen in 1834, to the building we today call the Old Riksdag House, the Riksdag's opening was held in the Hall of State until 1974. Today it is used for concerts and official ceremonies. Maybe you recognize the beautiful table setting in picture two? The photo was taken in connection with the Crown Princess couple's wedding dinner in 2010.
At the palace, a large façade work has been going on for several years, and in recent days SFV has completed the eighth stage, the central part of the western façade. After the shelter has fallen and the scaffolding has been taken down, the newly restored relief medallions and karytids peek out again.

The National Property Sweden takes you behind the scaffolding at the Royal Palace to show the craftsmanship that is going on during the facade work there - in both a historical and contemporary perspective.

The western façade of the palace has been completely renovated!
The renovation of the Royal Palace's west façade was recently completed. Now you can see again the nine relief medallions with the royal portraits and the five meter high female sculptures, the caryatids, from the castle's outer courtyard.
The renovation work of the western façade has taken two years. The National Property Board's ongoing facade renovation of the palace is the largest in modern times and is expected to be completed in 2050.

At social media of The Royal Palaces last Thursday

Favorite from the Royal Collections - Oskar II by Anders Zorn
Every Thursday for a few weeks to come, the Royal Palace's museum teachers will present their favorite objects from the Royal Collections. Museum teacher Per Sjödahl tells the story of the creation of a painting:
"Well, now you'll paint the old man." This is how the artist Anders Zorn is greeted by King Oskar II when he comes to the Royal Palace one winter day in 1898 to paint the king's portrait. Oskar II wants to be painted in the Life Guard's light blue uniform on horseback, but Anders Zorn is of a different opinion and replies that the portrait "should be painted but not by me". The king gets furious. Anders Zorn explains that if he now has a "chance" to paint his king, he intends to paint him as he knows him and he knows him "not as a soldier but as the patrom and practitioner of the arts and sciences". Oskar II softens and the portrait is painted, with the king sitting in his audience room in a costume with the seraphim band over his chest. At the battle, a rescue medal, which the king received for saving human lives in France, is the only award that found favor in Anders Zorn's eyes of all the orders and medals that Oskar II wanted to carry. The king was very pleased when the portrait was finished and embraced Anders Zorn several times.
The portrait can be seen in the Bernadotte Gallery at the Royal Palace.

The Adoration of the Kings
In one of the smaller rooms in the Guest Apartments at the Royal Palace hangs a painting entitled 'The Adoration of the Kings' made by the Flemish painter Frans Francken II in the early 17th century. The title is about the three wise men who find the baby Jesus thirteen days after Christmas.
Frans Francken II's (1581–1642) painting from 1615–1620, later ended up in Oskar I's (1799–1859) collection and after his death it was inherited by his youngest son Prince August (1831–1873) who lived at Haga Palace. Now it is back at the Royal Palace and hangs in one of the smaller rooms in the Guest Apartments.

The Royal Palaces at its Instagram
Welcome to the Royal Palace. Karl XI's gallery is the palace's and the Swedish late Baroque's most magnificent room. Before the official dinners, it is set for about 170 guests at the long table which is decorated with Swedish, Austrian and French silver from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The Hall of Mirrors in Versailles has served as a model for the interior of the room.

Museum Tre Kronor, located in the cellar vaults of the Royal Palace, reopens on Saturday and is open daily until further notice. The museum tells the oldest history of the palace. Watch a film from the museum where curator Christian Buchberger tells about what the castle looked like in 1697, about the course of the fire and about the harsh sentence for the lack of fire protection…
https://www.instagram.com/p/CYtzRNRM3sa/

On May 7, 1697, the fire broke out at Tre Kronor Castle. Everyone escaped from the castle, but the material damage was extensive. The fire mainly destroyed the older part of the castle but also damaged the newly built north wing. A number of invaluable documents, books and manuscripts went up in flames when the National Archives and the library were ravaged by fire.
Curator Christian Buchberger tells, on site in Museum Tre Kronor, about what the castle looked like in 1697, about the course of the fire and about the verdict for the lack of fire protection. The fire chief had sent one of the guards on assignment and another guard left his post without permission.

At 15.20 on Saturday afternoon, the police received an alarm that a drone was flying over Stockholm city.
The drone went over the Royal Palace and was discovered by the Royal Guard. It is described to be two meters wide and "of military type". The Security Service SÄPO has been informed.
The police don't want to go further into how drones flew, but say that it went over the central parts of Stockholm.
- It is a violation of the Protection Act because the Head of State, the Government, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the central government are there. So there is a flight ban with drones, says police spokesman Ola Österling.
It is currently unclear how long the drone was in the air.
SÄPO doesn't want to go into further details about the incident at the Royal Palace.
- We are currently assisting the police authorities with intelligence gathering and several of our areas of activity are working on this issue. The police are conducting the preliminary investigation of the incident, but we are assisting them, says Karin Lutz, press secretary at SÄPO.
On Friday evening, drones were seen over the nuclear power plants in Forsmark and Oskarshamn. According to the police, the drone at Forsmark was of a "larger model" and could withstand the wind, which was strong in the area at the time.

The Audience Chamber
Today, the Audience Chamber is used on ceremonial occasions and for suppers. A Riksdag supper is normally held after every election.
The Audience Chamber - Kungliga slotten

The Audience Chamber at the Royal Palace began to be used for audiences during Gustav III's time. The room was planned in the 1690s as a parade bed room for Charles XI, and was then called Spring.
