While we’ve always thought it would be pretty incredible to live in a palace, we may be having second thoughts. Because we hadn’t considered some of the scary things that might be found in a really old castle. Queen Silvia of Sweden admitted that her palace is possibly haunted, and now we feel a little bit spooked.

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Silvia live in Drottningholm Palace outside Stockholm, and it’s 350 years old. The age and history of the home alone is enough to make us think that maybe the queen is right.

According to the Queen, “There’s a lot of history here. There are also little friends… the ghosts.” She added, “They’re all very friendly, but you sometimes feel like you aren’t alone.”

The queen’s comments were broadcast as part of a documentary about the palace.
