Documentaries or biographies???

Does anybody know some good documentaries or biographies of the king or the queen ??? The language doesn't matter (preferably English).
It would be great if anybody could help me, because I choose King Harald and Queen Sonja as the subject of my English presentation .

The new book about Queen Sonja (and an artical about the first meeting with Mette-Marit):

DRONNINGEN - Slik var det første møte med Mette-Marit - Side2
Google Fordító

Other articals about the book:
"...Later that year she miscarry under King Olaf's birthday celebration..." - OMG!!!

I didn't know that her sister took her own life. :(

Dronningen - Biography about Queen Sonja

I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere, or if it belongs somewhere besides current events (mods please move if necessary ). Sonja's official biography was released today, and there are lots of articles online about it. It looks like she's been very open.

About her sister, who committed suicide in 1970, and Sonja's miscarriage shortly afterwards:

Thanks for sharing. It's quite touching and sad to read about her sister's death and the misscarriages...

I know, I thought that article was so sad. What horrible timing to have both events so close.

Sonja's mother must have been a very strong woman - 2 of her 4 children died before her, but she never seemed like a sad or bitter person. Quite the contrary, in fact.
