If you want to stay really, really close to the palace, the Eastern Wing is perfect. The classic rooms are jazzed up with Svenskt Tenn fabrics and cunning photo art.
The Wenner-Gren's loyal maitre d', John Karlsson, lived in the Eastern Wing for forty years. Every morning, he would go through the list of the evening party guests with Marguerite, whilst she was having breakfast in bed. Even though they seemed to have a close relationship, Karlsson denied that they were friends.
One morning, while sitting by his kitchen window, John saw six unannounced moving trucks pull up by the palace and movers start emptying the palace. Axel Wenner-Gren had recently passed away and it was the trustee, Birger Strid, selling off the estate.
