My occasional series on great palaces continues in the June issue of Majesty (Vol. 38, No. 6) with an article on Oscarshall, the neo-Gothic summer palace in Oslo that was built by King Oscar I in 1847-1852. After his early death Oscarshall was often neglected, but in the present reign it has woken from its slumber. The article also contains a small revelation, i.e. a newfound source indicating that Crown Prince Olav at first turned down the offer of Skaugum as he would rather live at Oscarshall. The magazine is already on sale in Britain and will go on sale in Norway on Thursday.
