Sweden's Queen Silvia believes her palace is haunted by “friendly” ghosts, according to Agence France-Presse.

The queen made the claim about the royal residence, Drottningholm Palace, during the documentary “Drottningholm Palace: A Royal Home,” which is set to air Thursday on the nation’s public television station.

"There are small friends ... ghosts. They're all very friendly but you sometimes feel that you're not completely alone," the queen said. "It's really exciting. But you don't get scared."

According to AFP, Drottningholm Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the permanent residence of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

Princess Christina, the king's sister, concurred with the queen’s claims. "There is much energy in this house. It would be strange if it didn't take the form of guises," the princess said in the documentary, according to AFP.

"There's stories about ghosts in all old houses. They have been filled with people over the centuries," she added. "The energies remain."

The queen was reportedly treated for dizziness at a Stockholm hospital shortly before Christmas. She was released after a two-night stay.
