Palace
“The Royal Palace was completed in 1849 and is where our king and queen lives. This is nearby to where you can stay in my apartment. Look for the red flag with a lion flying on the roof. If it's up it means the king is home. Every day at 13:30 (regardless of the weather) you can watch the changing of the guard. It takes about 40 minutes from start to finish and happens in front of the castle.”
