Bathina Philipson, the wife of Aje Philipson, one of the best friends of the king, starts an own TV-program at SVT on 6th October, Bathinas skilda världar (Bathina's different worlds).
Bathina hears often that her life is like a Cinderella story. And maybe it's not so strange. Bathina's parents are from Syria, she has eight siblings and her life began in the suburb. She became renowned when she met Aje Philipson, one of the king's best friends, and married him. They have an age difference of 35 years. They have three children and live in an apartment in central Stockholm.
- I fell for him instantly, for his presence and the life he could offer me. And that's the life I live today, even though I have a different background, tells Bathina.
In the new series Bathinas skilda världar, we get a unique insight into two very different worlds - and may even meet Bathina's parents, siblings and relatives living in Uppsala.
- You may think it's a big difference between these worlds? Yes, I'll take you out so we can decide ourselves, she says.
