The queen of Sweden has recently experienced paranormal behavior. The queen believes that the centuries-old Sweden Royal Palace in Stockholm is haunted.
Haunted Sweden Royal Palace: Queen’s Story
Drottningholm Palace was constructed in the 1600s. The palace is located on Lovön island in the Swedish capital and is on Unesco’s World Heritage list. The King and Queen of Sweden still live there. However, according to Queen Silva, they do not live there alone.
The Local reported the queen saying that the palace had a lot of history. In addition, she said that there are “friends” who live there – the ghosts. Although she said they are all very friendly, it would still make one feel like he/she wasn’t alone. The queen has invited people who wanted to feel the unknown presence themselves.
“Come and feel it for yourself, go around here when it is dark and the like. It’s very exciting,” Queen Silvia said an SVT documentary about the building.
The queen also claimed that she was not at all scared of the unknown companions from the afterlife. Furthermore, it seemed like spending decades in an old building like the palace makes a person stronger. She added that she had personally lived in the presence of these ghosts. “You don’t get scared, it’s as friendly as there is. Imagine what they could tell?” the 73-year-old queen said.
Other than Queen Silva, Princess Christina, King Carl XVI Gustaf’s sister, also believed that the royal mansion is haunted. She said that there are ghosts in all ancient houses. Moreover, she said that there’s a lot of energy in that house. According to her, the energy would express itself in the form of sounds and shapes.
Drottningholm Palace is kept open for the public all year round. However, rooms in the southern wing are kept closed during that time as they are reserved for the royals.
