Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip settle into new home

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden had hoped to move into a newly-renovated palace Villa Solbacken after they married – but unfortunately for the newlyweds, construction work has put a hitch into their plans.

The villa was ridden with asbestos in certain areas, so the Prince and Princess had to find a new home where they could start their life together – and they've settled into another set of royal digs: Rosendal Palace, Swedish publication Aftonbladet reports.

Rosendal Palace was built in 1827 and was always intended as a summer retreat – a place where the royal family could escape from the formalities of court life. Rosendal, however, has now become Carl Philip and Sofia's first marital home. Located on the couple's favorite island of Djurgården in central Stockholm, the palace is normally open to the public during the summer months.

  1. Carl Philip & Sofia are not living at Rosendal, nor the Queen's Pavilion at Rosendal as originally reported.
