Press preview, Thursday 3 June:
Daisy. Crown Princess Margareta
On 6 June, HM The King will open the exhibition Daisy. Crown Princess Margareta, 1882–1920. The King’s grandmother was a dynamic and popular crown princess – and a pioneer within many areas – who changed the image of the Royal Family, even to this day. Who was this woman, who was so modern for her time but is now unknown to many? Meet a princess ahead of her time.
In the apartment at the Royal Palace where Crown Princess Margareta lived with Gustaf (VI) Adolf and their five children – Gustaf Adolf, Sigvard, Ingrid, Bertil and Carl Johan – unique objects from the Royal Collections that belonged to the crown princess will be displayed, together with fascinating, previously unseen archive materials. She was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, and was known as Daisy to her family and friends. Come and get to know the princess that Prime Minister Hjalmar Branting described as “the ray of sunshine at Stockholm Palace”.
The exhibition Meet a princess ahead of her time. Daisy. Crown Princess Margareta, 1882–1920 will be on show at the Royal Palace from 6 June to 30 September 2021.
