Are there any chance of seeing this online after it has aired?

Count Jan Bernadotte af Wisborg (70) will get married for the 6th (!) time. His future bride is Gunilla Stenfors (53).

He is the son 0f prince Lennart Bernadotte and his 1st wife Karin Nissvandt.

I suppose all these divorces are expensive, so no wonder that the count was in a scandal in 2006, when it became clear that he adopted a man in exchange for money:

Seventh, not sixth.

His wifes were:
Gunilla Stampe 1965-1967)
Anna Skarne (1967-1970) mother of Sophia (b.1968)
Annegret Thomsen (1972-1974) mother of Cia-Rosemarie (b.1972)
Maritta Berg (1974-1987) mother of Alexander-Wilhelm (b.1977) & Stephan (b.1980)
Gabriele Tocks (1994-2004)
Christiane Grandnontagne. (2004-2006)

Oh gosh...Ernest Hemingway is, beside him, a model of fidelity.

He had four wifes, three divorces, and three children with two wives.
And his marriages, at least, lasted longer:

Elizabeth Hadley Richardson (1921-27, mother of John, b.1923)
Pauline Pfeiffer (1927-40, mother of Patrick b. 1928, & Gregory b.1931)
Martha Gellhorn (1940-45)
Mary Welsh (1946 - till his death in 1961)

As for Count Jan:
How could he adopt a man? One can adopt a child, not an adult man!

Wasn't Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband adopted as an adult by a German princess? That's how he has his title.

I am not sure where you can not do it, but in Germany there are a lot of cases where it happened indeed. The husband of ZsaZsa Gabor was adopted, and now he is adopting people himself (if they pay enough). The same goes for Mario-Max of Schaumburg-Lippe, who likes to make a spectacle of himself in the press (he is now on Dutch programme about a 'prince' looking for a wife....sigh). But there are also other cases where no money is involved, like Duke Max in Bavaria, who was adopted by a distant uncle so he could inherit the title. And the last prince of Hesse Darmstadt adopted the present prince of Hesse-Kassel (to evade high taxes on the inheritance perhaps, so the family collection could remain more or less in tact).

-
Ah, the 7th? One more and he can compete with Liz Taylor . It must be a royal record though.

He was indeed adopted by a German princess, Marie Augustine of Anhalt (the widow of Prince Joachim of Prussia, youngest son of Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany); but he didn't get any title, just (the male version of) her surname, so now he is Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, but Prinz von Anhalt is merely the surname.
German titles can't be transmitted in female line; and in fact Frederic isn't acknowledged as a member of the Ducal Family of Anhalt by anyone.

Thanks, Biri.

However it seems to me, someone ist missing. According to the German Wiki-site Countess Bettina has altogether three kids

Sie lebt mit ihrem Mann und den drei Kindern Valentin, Emil Gustaf und Linnea in Konstanz.

Princess Madelaine isn't the only Swedish royal in New York at the moment. Her great-aunt by marriage is also in the city for holidays.

Noblesse & Royautes has a picture of countess Marianne Bernadotte (widow of prince Sigvard) who apparently was there on invitation of prince Dmitri of Yugoslavia:

I guess when one is married and divorced so many times, wives must all blend together.

I wonder how he makes it financially. Surely the 2006 adoption/selling-of-a-title couldn't have provided enough funds to live on and pay alimony. Of course, since he and his last wife weren't actually divorced, maybe he wasn't providing her with any money. I guess it's a good thing that the next wife is content with what she said he gives her...attention...LOL!
