As the doors of Drottningholm’s Palace open we are joined by King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Christina and a number of experts from the royal court who bring the viewers behind the scenes of the palace known as the Palace of the Queens.
Drottningholm’s Palace was planned and built by Queen Hedvig Eleonora in the 1700th century and Queen Lovisa Ulrika was given The Chinese Pavilion, located in the grounds of the Drottningholm Palace park, as a birthday gift in the 1800th century. In this documentary three female Royals give their view of the Palace. We get to hear stories from the 1700th century to modern days, from the cellar to the attic.
Queen Silvia takes us through the private part of the Drottningholm Palace park, treating us to both stories of friendly ghosts and the arrest of Santa Clause. Princess Christina reveals that they used to play boccia in the entrance hall of the palace as children, and Crown Princess Victoria talks about as a child learning how to navigate Drottningholm’s Palace in the dark.
It’s a charming and beautiful documentary that will excite not only royal fans but people with an interest in architecture and history.
