In a documentary that will air on Swedish public television Thursday, Sweden’s Queen Silvia says the royal palace is haunted by ghosts.

"There are small friends ... ghosts. They're all very friendly but you sometimes feel that you're not completely alone," the queen says in the documentary, according to The Guardian. "It's really exciting. But you don’t get scared," she added.

The royal palace of Sweden was built in the 1600s on an island in Stockholm. Drottningholm Palace is on the Unesco world heritage list. Queen Silvia lives there with her husband, King Carl XVI Gustaf, to whom she has been married for 40 years.

The queen is 73 years old and is Sweden’s longest-serving queen. The king’s sister Princess Christina agreed that ghosts are present in the castle.

“There is much energy in the house. It would be strange if it didn’t take the form of guises,” Christina says in the documentary, according to the BBC.

“There’s stories about ghosts in all old houses,” Christina went on. “They have been filled with people over the centuries. The energies remain,” the Guardian reported her as saying.

The palace is open to visitors year-round except for the area where the royals live, the documentary noted, so in theory amateur ghost-hunters could come and test the queen’s claims, the BBC stated.

Queen Silvia had previously told an interviewer for the 2015 book “The Royal Year” that she was very lonely during her first year as queen living with mainly men, even though everyone was kind.

She was briefly hospitalized before Christmas after a dizzy spell but was released after two days.
