COPENHAGEN – Queen Silvia of Sweden said in a documentary to be aired on Thursday night on public television channel SVT that ghosts exist in her official residence in Drottningholm Palace.
Silvia, 73, of German origin, not only alludes to stories of ghosts in the palace, but also claims to have noticed their presence.
The wife of King Carl XVI Gustaf said in the documentary, “Drottningholm Palace: A Royal Home,” that there are small, friendly ghosts.
The queen is not the only member of the Swedish royal family who supports this belief as Princess Christina, the King’s sister, went further and claimed to have seen the figure of a woman in white in the castle.
Princess Christina said in the same documentary that there is a lot of energy in this palace and it would be strange if it did not take the form of different guises.
Drottningholm Castle, a 17th-century building on the World Heritage List of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, is located west of Stockholm, and has been since 1981 the official residence of the kings of Sweden.
