Drottningholm Palace Chapel

Drottningholm Palace Chapel was opened in 1730, and has been in continuous use ever since. The chapel belongs to the Treasurer of the Court and is part of the Royal Court Parish, but Lovö Parish conducts services in the chapel on the last weekend of each month, and all are welcome to attend. Concerts are also held here during the summer and at Christmas.

In recent years, Princess Leonore, Prince Nicolas, Prince Alexander, Prince Gabriel and Princess Adrienne have all been christened at Drottningholm Palace Chapel.
