"Majestät!" by ZDF: documentary on Royal Families, 2006
 
www.zdf.de

German TV channel ZDF will show a documentary of Royal Familys!

Already always the life and dying of the large monarchies moved the persons. Most kings yet ruler were at the beginning of the 20th century over its countries, only 27 regents have worldwide the turning point to the year 2000 in office and would be experienced. In the mean time the last monarchs of the earth are restricted almost all on representative functions. Nevertheless they are for its peoples yet always symbols of national unit and identity.
The five hurried row "majesty!" goes this phenomenon on the reason. How is the self understanding of these kings? How do they use the traditions, the story of its dynasty to the security of the monarchy? How do they see its "subjects"? And how do its subjects see it? Stand the monarchs of this earth rescue can also for a tradition, the values of the story for the future? The row "majesty!" portrays five of these last monarchies: The emperor house of Japan and the king houses of Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands and - in the first sequence - Sweden.
Know learned Silvia itself and Carl Gustaf of Sweden during the Olympic summer games in Munich 1972. it was host meal, it yet crown prince. "It has click made", described Carl Gustaf later the moment, in which it learned know Silvia. Four years later were married it. With Silvias entrance in that stockholm lock the sympathy values of the king family shot into formerly unequaled heights. The ruler couple of Sweden always heavily made it critics and mockeries to find a reason for the flaw. Is other European monarchies in which separations and side leaps stand on the order of the day, for in contrast to unite the vest the king family Bernadotte almost white. Queen Silvia, king Carl XVI. Gustaf and its children Kronprinzessin Victoria, prince Carl-Philip and princess maggot line are something akin to the "Persil-variant" of monarchy: Attractively, sympathetic and above all scandal free.
The documentation shows the story of the king couple Silvia and Carl Gustaf of Sweden between politics and private: The start as a newspapers abundance romance, that upswing, that the Swedish monarchy took through the middle class import out of Germany, and the present of the king house between the approval in the people and the rejection through the politics.
In the interview of external itself prominent subjects as well as the former tennis-star Stefan Edberg, Joachim Fuchsberger, that was with Silvia in the Olympia-team, the brother-in-law of the king, prince Johann Georg of Hohenzollern, and the former ABBA-singer Annifrid Lyngstad. But also inveterate monarchy opponents out of the Swedish parliament come to word and place clearly why they demand the abolition of the monarchy. Queen Silvia itself explained herself to an exclusive interview ready and reports of its entirely personal memories of its wedding and its years as a young queen.

Heres the script for the second show:

It was the first dear marriage in the story of the house Oranien-Nassau. Yet the wedding of the crown princess Beatrix with the German diplomat Claus of Amsberg in the year 1966 bumped in the country into embittered resistance. Thousands of rioting dutch disturbed the ceremonies in Amsterdam. Calculated a "Mof", an "evil German" had itself the Dutch princess choosen as her husband. Over 60,000 dutch gave its signature - against the Liaison. The wounds that the second world war had torn were yet too fresh. As a child, Beatrix spent the years of the German garrison in the Canadian exile while father prince Bernhard with queen Wilhelmina of London organized out of the resistance against the NS-regime.
First 1945, at the age of seven years, turned the Kronprinzessin with its family into the homeland back. Beatrix of its mother Juliana received 1980 crown. As a diplomierte lawyer, she had been prepared thoroughly for its office. Since then it sets its entire ambition on that to become the inherited office just. As a queen, she exercises that its rights of accruing qua states up to the boundaries of the possible and sets at the same time going out own accents over its representative roll. 2005, in the year of the silver government anniversary, were Beatrix' sympathy value in the population unambiguous. The queen sovereign overcame the families scandals of the last years. For its compatriots, it remains the "boss", the arbeitswütige manager of a modern palace business. Very openly it speaks over the Schattenseiten of its office: Let it be "entirely impossible" to remain at the same time an entirely normal person: "Such a small red lamp that signals me always burns in my rear head: May you so say that, you may do that, are this or to answer for that? As a queen, one must be always on the hat." Your deceased prince husband complained once publicly: "Our life plays to be itself from between duty and 24 hours actually in the service. We sit in a glass house." Prince Claus got depression, had grown its manifold tasks no longer. Yet the balances of queen Beatrix' government time is notable. The few opponents of the king house stand on lost post. The monarchy after Dutch pattern functions. The documentation shows sent directed has the portrait of a strong woman, that over a quarter century the house Oranien-Nassau over all turbulences away. For the first time, a TV team in the "cabinet of the queen" was allowed to turn, in the center of the Dutch monarchy. Queen Beatrix itself gives insights into the life behind the facade of brightness and Gloria. Friends and trusted of the family, like Avi Primor and the minister Carel ter linden trees, historian and politician as well as Richard of Weizsäcker draw a sensitive picture of the Dutch monarch.
