I'm not sure if it will be possible to watch the docu on line, maybe some Swedish member can tell us more about this.

This is similar to the Danish one that has just been aired.
Should be very interesting.

Hopefully iTunes will this available as a podcast like the Danish documentary.

Sweden is airing a TV special about the Bernadotte family, first episode was tonight. Very nice program and the King was really lovely.
The 3rd one will be devoted to Victoria. I can't wait to see that.

Thanks for the video link:smile:. If only the subtitle was in English:bang:.

Sister Morphine 04-30-2010 05:00 PM

Thank you very much for the link -- I've been watching the episode and enjoying it thus far. The King's sisters were all such beautiful girls when they were younger. I'm sure it had to have been a treat to have a little brother to dote on.

I too wish the subtitles were in English or there was an option for English subtitles but I'm making do. :smile:

In short it was about the King's childhood, talk about his father dying early and how he prepared for his big role.
The Queen, Princess Kristina, KP and a few others were commenting on him as a person. Silvia said he is a very funny man, a side she wish the public should see more of.
Next weeks episode is about the Queen

avrilo 05-01-2010 11:32 AM

Thanks for the translation, I kinda figured it out something like that :P.
Anyway, I would have loved to see a piece on Madeline and Carl Philip, lets hope in the Queen's piece and the last one they devote sometime to them

can somebody explain me why the previous parts are not available anymore?

Lumutqueen 05-21-2010 06:29 AM

They have possible been taken of the website for other programs.

wok_kym 05-21-2010 09:07 AM

oh that's too bad! i couldn't see them before

PrincessJenni 05-22-2010 05:27 AM

The documentary has amazingly beautiful music and in general it's very well done. I think I'm lucky that I studied Swedish language at school and I can follow the serie ;)

This I already wrote to another discussion, but then I realized that you have started a new discussion about the documentary Familjen Bernadotte:

Did you know that Daniel Westling's father has met King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia already in the early 1980's? I think it was funny to find out that The King and The Queen arrived to Ockelbo where Daniel's father was living and working as social chef, and he had an opportunity to give a speech in front of Victoria's parents. This film from Swedish Tv channel shows how it was back then:
Familjerna Bernadotte och Westling möts - Familjen Bernadotte - TV4 Play -

Little did they know about what will happen in future!

(This video is from Familjen Bernadotte, part 4.)

SwedQueen 05-28-2010 06:23 AM

This is one of the best royal series I've seen. Last nights show with Princess Christina talking about her family history was magic. The Swedish royal family are so likable and so full of pride. It makes me even more proud to be Swedish.

CrownPrincess5 06-09-2010 04:04 PM

Why are some of the videos unavailable?

Good question, I was wondering that same thing the other night when I couldn't play/find the older segments! That's a real bummer.:rofl:

Esmerelda 10-30-2010 06:29 PM

Some parts are on YouTube

Esmerelda 10-30-2010 06:33 PM

Esmerelda 10-30-2010 06:35 PM

The part on Victoria is dubbed in German (which is good for me!)

BeatrixFan 06-07-2012 03:53 PM

Is this the same documentary series called "Years of the Royal Family 1976 - 2009"? I've just bought the boxset and can't wait for it to arrive! It's in Swedish with English subtitles. I'm hoping Princess Lilian is featured!
