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!
Crown Princess Margareta (1882–1920) was a fascinating individual, who was far ahead of her time in many areas. She was a strong-willed woman and the mother of several children, and founded Sweden's first bandy team for women. She also coordinated large consignments of packages sent to prisoners of war throughout Europe, and was a keen gardener and a talented artist. "The ray of sunshine at Stockholm Palace" certainly made an impression on her contemporaries.
*The exhibition will open this summer, subject to recommendations and restrictions. Find out more about the exhibition here.
