Yes , the character is indeed the Kaiser. He meets John in the corridor, shortly before Edward VII funeral (and before John has a fit).

I saw the Lost Prince last week. It is a very touching movie.

I lked the way they portrayed little Johnnie's dreams about the Tsar and his family coming to live with him or about the Wilhem II and Franz-Joseph (even if this one is very short).
The duke of Kent (Georgie) is a very interesting character as well.

The young actors who play Johnnie and Georgie are amazing.

As has been said previously in this thread, "The Lost Prince" is quite enjoyable viewing but many, many historical accuracies are in it.

Prince John met the Russian Royal Family once in 1909 when he was but four years old so they are unlikely to have made an enormous impression on him. I simply don't understand why their execution was shown also - nothing whatsoever to do with young Prince John who was at the time living at Wood Farm with his beloved "Lalla".

Several portrayals were inaccurate also - the Tsar, the Kaiser, Queen Mary and the Grand Duchesses are some which come to mind...

PBS miniseries The Lost Prince

If anyone is interested...PBS is running a miniseries based on the life of King Geoge v and Queen Mary's son Prince John. I came across it late last night. I only caught thelast 10 to 15 minutes but its PBS so i'm sure they're run it again. At the end of the theatrical broadcast there was a documentary covering the life and lifestyle of Tzar Nicholas and Alexandra and Kaiser Wilhelm. Here's the link to the PBS website:

Hi, having watched and enjoyed 'the lost prince' on TV again recently, could anyone tell me what became of Lala, who looked after Prince John at York Cottage?

I have just watched a re- run of this mini series & found it very enjoyable - the actors were without exception tremendous, & the production values extremely high. Well done Stephen Poliakoff for writing & directing such a moving piece of drama One aspect I found particularly interesting was the portrayal of Prince George & Prince John. It made me wonder about the accuracy of their close relationship & Prince George's apparent aversion to a naval career while at Dartmouth. I'm also interested to know if the older siblings, Edward & Bertie had much to do with their younger brother - perhaps someone could enlighten me.

Couldn't agree more. The lost prince is one of my favourite movies.

Sadly I do not know, how the relationship between the older brothers and Johnnie was. I've read the Duke of Windsors memoirs and found no word about Johnnie.

There wasn't much of a relationship between John and the older brothers. George was the one he was closest to, and I think he may have been fairly close to Mary when he was young. His oldest two brothers were away at school or war during most of the time he was alive. I mean, they weren't total strangers, but it wasn't like with normal siblings. With large royal families usually kids with more than a few years age difference weren't close. Wasn't like it is today.

This was a very moving if overly romantic story of that tragic Prince John. I felt that the actress playing Charlotte "Lala" Bill could have also played Princess Victoria, Prince John's spinster aunt as she bears a slight resemblance to her.

I also think life at Sandringham after Edward VII died could have been shown more as it had been (old, fusty, and depressing) including Princess Victoria, Charlotte Knollys, and Sir Dyghton Probin.

And despite the graphic murder scene (of the Romanovs), it was far from how it actually went down. It was still effecting and tragic but not entirely accurate.

I've heard of this movie and because of this British prince apparently the name John is bad luck in The BRF because Diana wanted to name her eldest john after her father? But instead the baby got William Phillip Arthur Louis who we have come to know as prince William of wales,duke of Cambridge .

Also ive always wanted to watch this movie but can't find it anywhere. Help please.much thanks.:)
