The story with exclusive photos is here. Following is a portion of the story as translated into English by Google, explaining why the Cambridges are not staying at Sweden’s Royal Palace:
They then drove in a small cardigan to the Diplomat city at Östermalm in Stockholm, where British ambassador David Cairns has his official residence.
Letting the duchess live there was not an easy decision for the court. Normally, the king usually allows foreign guests like the royal family to live at the Stockholm Palace’s guest house.
“Renovations of the façade at Stockholm Castle are currently underway. This means that you can not live or stay in there. As it seems now, there is no possibility to live in the guest house.
