Princess Estelle Visit's the Royal Collections
Today, the Royal Court shared that yesterday, 20 February, Princess Estelle visited the Royal Collections at the Palace accompanied by her mother and brother.
This visit is apart of what many are calling apart of her “Queen School” training. Over the past year the Royal Court has been increasingly good at sharing photos of Princess Estelle visiting museums and departments of the court to learn about their work and history. The family has said that they wish to expose the children in natural ways to the responsibility and great history that they share and organizing these visits aligns with that mission.
On Wednesday’s visit, Princess Estelle was shown the archives and given a tour by curator Alexander Holm. She was shown the historical images of royal objects in the Royal Collections' photo archive in addition to getting information about the various rooms in the palace.
One room which the royal court highlighted was Carl XVI Gustaf's anniversary room which in 1998, when the King celebrated 25 years on the throne, the room was redecorated in a modern style that reflected the contemporary. The Princess was shown how the room had changed over the years in purpose and decoration style- including being used as a salon and a bedroom at one point in history.
Princess Estelle was also shown Oskar II's writing room, which the decorations and furniture have been left the same preserving the style from the late 19th century. The Princess was shown the technological innovations of the time such as telephone and electric light, which were revolutionary in the day, and have changed significantly since.
