As near as I can decipher from the official Swedish monarchy web page on the palace, and the plans:

First Floor (2nd floor American)
-  The North Range (top of the plans) would be the "Bernadotte Apartments", with the King's private rooms behind
-  The West Range (left) are the four "Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry"
- The South Range (bottom) are the Hall of State on the left, and the Ballroom on the right?

Second Floor (3rd floor American)
- The North Range would be the State Apartments, with the Queen's private rooms behind
- The West Range would be the Guest Apartments (above the Orders of Chivalry rooms)
- The South Range would be the upper space of the Hall of State and Ballroom?

Questions:
1.  Do I have that right about the ballroom?  Is there a difference between the "ballroom" and the "White Hall" which is at the right of the State Apartments?  Or - is the space I think is a ballroom actually a chapel?
2.  What would all the rooms in the East Range (right of plan) be used for?  Are those the King and Queen's offices?

On the right side of the South Range is Slotkyrkan the Palace Church.
The Ballroom is the White See or Vitva Havet.
And in the East Range are the so called Princess Sibyllas Appartements (don't know where there) which are used by the King, Queen and Crown Princess for their daiyl work (for example the Engagement Press Conference of Vicotira and Daniel) and they also have their offices there.

Thanks Stefan22!   Do you happen to know what the room is in the south range between the Hall of State and the Chapel?

I've been able to piece together the following:

First Floor North Range left to right
- Pillared Hall
- Victoria Salon
- Bernadotte Gallery flanked by two small anterooms
- Audience Room
- Jubilee Room
- Gallery

Second Floor North Range Left to right
- Council Room
- Unknown
- State Bedchamber
- Karl XI Gallery
- 2 more unknown rooms
- White Sea Hall / Ballroom

Am I correct?

That is the entrance from Slotbacken. There are big marble staricases on both sides which lead to the hall of State on the one side and Slotkyrkan on the other.

The two rooms between the Karl XI gallery and the White Sea Hall were part of the state apartment of Queen Sophia Magdalena, but not much used by her. The first room after the gallery was her state bedroom. I believe the next room was her audience chamber but I’ll have to double check another plan I have.

Today tours of the Royal Palace in Oslo have been cancelled by the palace manager due to the current terror threat against unspecified Norwegian targets by unknown extremists.

Hi,

This was a surprising, and really shocking, news story to me.
Why Norway?  What's Norway done to piss off anyone to warrant terrorist threats or attacks?

Новый дом Карла-Филиппа и Софии
Ранее сообщалось, что после свадьбы принц Карл-Филипп вместе с супругой принцессой Софией переедут жить в виллу Сулбакен, которая досталась в наследство принцу Карлу-Филиппу от принца Бертиля и принцессы Лилиан.
Однако газата "Aftonbladet" и издание "Svensk Damtidning" сообщили, что пара поселится в другое жилье - в павильон Королевы, расположенный на острове Юргорден, недалеко от центра Стокгольма.
Причина их переезда, как говорит пресса, связанная с ядовитостью асбеста. Вилла Сулбакен нуждается в полной реставрации.

New home of Carl-Philip and Sofia
Earlier it was reported that after their wedding Prince Carl-Philip and his wife Princess Sofia will move to live in Villa Solbacken that Carl-Philip inherited from Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian.
However the newspaper "Aftonbladet" and an issue of "Svensk Damtidning" reported that the couple settle in new housing - the Queen's Pavillion, on the island of Djurgården, close to the center of Stockholm.
The reason for their move, according to the press, was because of toxic asbestos. Villa Solbacken is in need of a complete restoration.

See http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/3402105.html for pics.

Drottningens paviljong, the Queen's Pavilion, is an annex to the former royal summer residence Rosendal Palace built by King Carl XIV Johan, which is open to the public during summer and lies right behind the popular amusement park Skansen. The pavilion itself has untill now been rented out to some Counts Trolle-Wachtmeister (whose name coïncidentally means "janitor" in Swedish!), the family of the current обер-гофмейстерина / Mistress of the Robes, who, however, soon will move down to their castle Trolle Ljungby in Scania.
