Went here on a Wednesday at 12.15 to see the changing of the guard. Worth seeing. We were told by a guide that a band plays Abba songs on Weds. but this didn't happen. Good fun though.

As said, pay for the guided tour, very cheap indeed and extremly valuable. Take your time because if you get caught of interest, you will spend some good hours there. Enjoy.

It is a beautiful building from the outside, but not that impressive on the inside. It could be improved.

An interesting walk through of the top floors of this working palace where the King regularly works and attends functions but don’t expect to see him thanks to the necessary security required in these troubled times.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home

Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.
