This post shows you what the castle looks like on the inside and how to issue decrees.
Before you can see inside the castle you need to:
- Build it
- Then complete the Royal Lineage Quest
- Once you have completed that quest you need to complete the archery hobby to unlock the royal gallery.
Then you complete the jester hobby to unlock the throne room
Castle Gardens– complete the archery using the targets
Build the statues by completing the archery hobby to unlock the royal gallery
The gallery costs S200,000
The Royal Gallery– complete the jester hobby using the chest
Throne Room– complete the jester hobby to build the throne room
The throne room costs S300,000 and takes a day to build
Once built you can access the top floor of the castle:
And new royalty clothes become available in the wardrobe
Teens and Adults can issue decrees, to do this they first have to be wearing a royal outfit (one that you unlock when you build the throne room)
Then click on the throne to issue decrees or rule (they will just sit on the throne for 4 hours)
They sit and issue the decree for 4 hours, once issued it will come into effect for 24 hours (if you have a decree that isn’t mentioned please let me know so I can add it to the list)
Some are useful like making new friends faster and some are just for fun like snow day!
- Snow Day- snows for 24 hours
- Friendship Day- sims will make new friends faster for 24 hours
- Walk Like Zombies- sims walk like zombies for 24 hours
- Rainy Day- rains for 24 hours
- National Hat Day- all sims wear hats for 24 hours (you don’t have to put a hat on each sim, it happens automatically)
- Lover’s Day- sims will fall in love faster than normal for 24 hours
- Friendship Day
You cannot cancel a decree, if you want to start a new one while another one is still in progress you will have to speed up with LPs
Thanks for reading!

I’m impressed you’re already in the castle! I’m just shooting and shooting and shooting arrows… X 2 Sims! LOL
it takes forever!
I kept shooting so then after about two weeks I just bought them which all the ones I needed came right up with no repeats it didn’t hardly cost me nothing . Should have done that in the beginning.
Been working on the jester hobby too. Seems like the newer hobbies keep you stuck on the same two achievements over and over, even if you level up. Stupid. And it takes so long each time, it’s so irritating to keep getting the same thing over and over!
I know! I got one about 5 times before I found the other two in that row!
How can my sims get change into royal clothings?
you need to build the throne room to unlock the royal clothes for adults and teens
I’ve been doing the archery hobby for weeks and I can’t get any of the fourth level targets. One more statue to go and I’m so frustrated.
Hey, is’nt the royal gallery still has to be bought first before you can enter it? It costs S200,000, does’nt it?
Yes you do, I can’t remember how much it costs sorry, I thought I took a screenshot but I can’t find it!
I’ve completed the jester hobby and built the staircase. I’ve even declared a friendship decree. Is there a way to move a sim inside the castle as their permanent home?
No sims can’t live in the castle
How long does it take to do the jestering hobby (for example the archery takes 7:30 hrs) ?
The longest option is 5 hours 30 minutes, I will be creating the post as soon as I have got the last one!
Actually, i’m kind of disapponted in the castle. Aside from the jester and archery hobbies there’s not much else to do besides change into royal clothes and make your sims walk around like zombies for a day. You can’t move in a royal family either. I finished the throne room about a week ago.
Hi is anybody having problems catching new fish in the Sims freeplay,I don’t seem to be able after months of trying. I’m also on level 46 and can’t get Bread Winner started. Thanks.
Sometimes it just takes a long time to find a new hobby item, the fishing hobby took me forever to complete!
Is the bread winner quest not in your quest queue: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/02/02/the-sims-freeplay-quest-queue/ if not you may have to contact EA to see why you can’t start the quest
I completed the first row, and now apart from the Dance option there is Mime (3h and something) should i select that or continue with the Dance option? Thanks in advance 🙂
yes select mime
Hi, i heard you lost the screenshoot of the gallery’s price, so i thought i might help you with that 🙂 The gallery costs S200.000 and the throne room costs S300.000.
there you go, you can add that to your post if you want 🙂
Source: i had built both gallery and the throne room
Thank you 🙂
Still on the archery quest as well, I have 2 Sims doing it and 90% of the time they get the PegLeg skill :p Only one statue unlocked since I can’t seem to get any of the other skills :p
These two hobbies seem to take forever!
How long is the archery hobby?
I started a new game with new facebook account but none of my neighbors are there. am i supposed to do something to get them to the party boat?
This post may help: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/the-sims-freeplay-fixing-the-party-boat-showing-no-neighbours-issue/
Do you have to do the new things your jester sim learns to get the next level of skills or can I do mime even when I’ve already unlocked tambourine…
you need to do the next thing that unlocks, mime will only find you the first row
My castle costs 700,000 😦
I’m sorry but can you tell me what your facebook account is so I can friend you?
sorry I don’t have a facebook account at the moment, its been suspended
What is your recommendations on how to complete the jester hobby? Can there be only one jester at a time?
yes you can only have one jester at a time, you just have to keep going, there is no trick to it, once you complete the first row move onto the next option then complete that row and then move onto the next option and so on.
So frustrating – I spent days getting the final “Flags” achievement for the Jester hobby. Got it yesterday, got the LP for completing all of the Jester quests – but the staircase still wasn’t available! Talking to the fairy again and she says that I have to complete the Jester task – which I had just done! I have to start the Jester task all over again!! This did happen at about the same time the new set of quests for building patios etc started, and this does have a weird effect on in-progress tasks.
Well that shouldn’t happen, you could contact EA to see if they can fix that issue for you
I am getting so frustrated. I have been needing the last jestering hobby that is the rare one for WEEKS. It is really getting ridiculous they make it so incredibly hard to get something. I get making something more difficult but it shouldn’t be so hard that it makes you give up. I have been doing flags every 5 1/2 hours for at least 2 weeks and it still won’t give me the rare one and I can’t even buy it. When I tried to do a random roll it didn’t give it to me either and I did that twice, I can only lose so many LP. Sorry just wanted to vent at how ridiculously hard this game as become.
I am having exactly the same issue! I have had the last one to get for so long now, it just isn’t giving it to me!
do you continue with the flags or do you randomly do whatever since it says random?
you have to do flags if you want one in the last row
SAME! I’m on summer break so I’ve been able to check in every 5.5 hours and I’ve been doing it for weeks and I just can’t get the last flags rare one! I’ve tried random
Roll and that’s just been flushing LP down the toilet. I’ve tried using different sims and I lost all their progress in other hobbies for this. I’ve tried having sims who are inspired and I’ve tried with ones who are not. I just can’t get that last one!!!!
It’s really annoying Just keep at it! It takes a long time but you will get it eventually
Hi, love your blog really. 🙂
I have finished building the stairs and accessed the throne room. Do we all have the same decrees or does it depends on the type of Sims we created? Saw a comment here about a Friendship Decree which i don’t have.
Also, i realised there are 3 levels, 2nd level is the gallery, 3rd level is the throne room. What is 1st level then? The castle fairy is still here in the castle, does that mean there are more to this quest? Cos usually they would leave our Sims neighbourhood after the quests are completed, just like the human in bunny costume, the alien, the dance couple, etc.
No, I think decrees must change each day, I don’t think it depends on the sim as I have tried with different sims
Level one is the garden area, because there are stairs so level 2 is the gallery and level 3 is the throne room
Oh I really hope not! 😛 That quest just went on, didn’t it?!
This is the same for me–I have done the tambourine for at least a week and it’s not giving me the rare one, so I can’t move on. I have also lost LPs on a random roll and ending the task early. Maybe it is a glitch, although someone in the comments got done. AAARRRRRGGGGG
It just takes such a long time, I have finally completed it after weeks and weeks of trying to get the last one!
So it’s weird, i just built the staircase and got the top floor of the castle. I changed into a royal outfit and went to the throne. But my decree options are entirely different. My options are ‘National Hat Day’, ‘Friendship Day’ and ‘Lovers Day’. And all options are only 4 hours.
they change each day, it does say tell me what you get and I will add them to the list.
Do they decrees take time to come into effect? I just did the “walk like zombies” one and none of my sims are shuffling around like it says. Does it take 4 hours to come into effect, since selecting that decree says 4 hours?
It takes 4 hours to issue to decree, once done it will come into effect
I’m so disappointed in this update especially given it took several tedious weeks to unlock! The way it was marketed to us was that we could create a royal family and now, like someone else mentioned, you just go there and play dress up! Complete waste unless they change it!
Thank you for taking your time and effort, not only to complete the tasks, but also to post and inform the rest of us. I really appreciate it!
can you list more degrees? i know at least 3 more: national hat day, rainy day, lover’s day
it does say in the post I will add anymore if people let me know what they are!
So, you don’t get a royal family with this quest? I thought you could have a Sim move in and start a royal family.
no you don’t
Thank you so much you are the best
If you have a snow day whilst doing the ice skating quest to unlock the prizes you can maybe skate on every pool? Just an idea I haven’t unlocked the castle yet 😂
yes you can
When I do the friendship day royal degree, my sims don’t seem to make friends any faster than before? Is this just me or am I expecting more than what actually happens?
It definitely works, but you need to issue the decree for 4 hours before it becomes the decree for 24 hours, then:
it takes 1 minute for strangers to become acquaintance
it takes 1 minute for acquaintance to become friends
it takes 2 minutes for friends to become good friends
and it takes 4 minutes for good friends to become best friends.
Around home much time roughly did it take you to make the entire thing….
several months! Mainly because it took so long to complete the jester hobby
Will the king or queen b able to live in the castle in an update or something and can they get married
no one can live in the castle right now and they probably won’t as it isn’t a house its a public place
Can two or more sims be doing the same royal hobby at the same time?
two sims can do archery, one sim can do jester hobby at a time
I’m at level 41 and just got enough money to build the castle. It’s built, but I I’m not given the chance to complete the “royal lineage” quest. What am I missing?
that is strange, it should start as soon as you click on the castle to finish building it, you may need to contact EA to see if they can fix this problem for you.
Excuse me – why can’t I read the books from bookshelves in the castle (1/F)?
I don’t know, I can read all of them, do you have a sim at the castle to read the book?
Lordy, took 7 weeks of someone constantly doing the Jester Hobby to finally get the last one and complete it.
Finally upstairs – do you get anything for Issuing Decrees or is it just all for fun?
It is just for fun!
Yes, but the blue footprints keep popping up
you may need to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you then, sorry
When I am on the first floor of the castle, the little ‘floor number symbol’ on the right says I have 2 floors. These would be the first floor and second floor. When I’m on the second floor, the number symbol is 3! Should there be an attic or basement? Thank you very much!
No, they count the outside area as the ground floor, probably because there are steps going up to the ground floor of the castle
I have got the second option to Dance as a Jester but it hasn’t opened any item on the second row
dance is the first row, you need to select mime to find the second row items.
Is there a way to cancel a royal decree? I have walk like zombies and i don’t want that can i cancel it without spending LPs to issue a new one?
No, you cannot cancel it, if you don’t want to spend LPs to speed up and issue a new one you will just have to wait until its over, sorry!
Does lover’s day make sims date faster?
yes, they reach milestones quicker
One of my weekly tasks is to use a flag like a jester in the castle gallery. Where are the flags? I dont remember if I finished the Jester quest.
You need to do the flag option on the jester hobby: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/05/06/the-sims-freeplay-hobbies-jester/
Honestly! I am slowly giving up on Sims Freeplay! I think I’ll quit in a few weeks!
How many times do we have to issue each decree before we complete the task and can buy fairies? Is this task timed?
You don’t have to issue decrees at all, its optional and you don’t get fairies from issuing them, you unlock fairies if you complete the royal lineage quest in the time limit
I been working on getting the last two archery skills. I’m not leveling up in the skill at all. I been getting the same skills.my skill level is 4 or 5 and I need one statue left .my questions is why won’t it give the skills I need to complete the archery hobby to get into castle? I’m seriously about to give up on that hobby because I been working on it for weeks to get no where.any tips,hints or suggestions would be great. Ty in advance.
I don’t know why you aren’t levelling up at all, and there isn’t really anything I can do to fix it, so you may want to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you, sorry!
In my castle there isn’t any snowy day decrees, hat day decrees or walk like a zombie decree, I only have the friendship day and lovers day and also rainy day, why?
I’m not sure! I still have all those ones, you may just have to keep checking back, they should appear at some point!
I built the castle and have been issuing decrees but the only decrees that show up are rainy day, lovers day and friendship day, what happened to snowy day and hat day and the rest?
I’m not sure! I still have all those ones, you may just have to keep checking back, they should appear at some point!
Are there any benefits of doing something like national hat day or is it just for fun? Do I have to put a hat on every sim or do they automatically appear after the 4 hours? Thx
It is just for fun! The hats will be put on your sims automatically and disappear after 24 hours
I have to earn more money for my castle and my shopping mall. I send my sims to work and get my daily reward regularly but is there a way to get more money?
This post may help: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/the-sims-freeplay-15-ways-to-make-money-and-lps/
I decreed snow day 3 days ago and it’s still snowing. Changed the decree to lovers day yesterday (over 18 hrs ago ) and it’s still snowing. I thought by changing the decree it would change the previous decree back to default. Any ideas how I can get it to stop snowing?
Are you doing the Christmas quest? Because it is snowing for everyone completing the Christmas quest right now.
Not the Christmas quest but I am doing the “The Secret Winter Wonderland ”
I didn’t even know Cmas quest was going on. I’ve Not received an offer to start it.
I did an update on game 3 nights ago so I should of received invite to begin right? Or do I need to finish S.W.W. Quest first?
Thanks for all your help and knowledge to us and your quick responses.
Happy Holidays to you and family🎄🎁
That is the Christmas quest
