Storyline

The older Prince Bernhard tells the story of his exciting life to Princess Máxima. After all, when Prince Willem-Alexander takes the throne, she will be his Queen and take up much the same position as Bernhard did as husband to former Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. His story takes us from Palace Soestdijk to once-German Reckenwalde with the young Bernhard, to Nazi-Berlin, wartime in London, Argentina and Canada and much more. It paints a portrait of the world from the thirties to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Bernhard survived the deepest of crises: accusation of treason by Ian Fleming during the war, corruption in the fifties and seventies, extra-marital daughters and even being the main reason for a dutch governmental crisis.

Benno on my mind
26 January 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Ever since I've seen the first episode of this amazing series, Benno's on my mind. This wonderful series tells us the story through the eyes of Prince Bernhard. We go back to pre WW1, when Nazi Germany was uprising. We see our Prince as a young playboy, always charming and a looker for the ladies. Bernhard, or Benno for close friends, is a very likable character and a real interesting one too. This is especially due to the wonderful performances of Daan Schuurmans (young Prince Bernhard) and Eric Schneider (old Prince Bernhard) They really look like the Prince, which in a way enhances the effect and makes it a real joy to watch.

There is also plenty of room for laughter in this series, and when you realise that this is based on a true story it's even more spectacular(!) All I can say is that this man has seen some action in his life. Some things the Prince has done in his life may not be all that glamorous...but they sure make a great exciting story to watch!

I think they did a truly amazing job to make this such a wonderful series. I don't think the people of the Netherlands will think less of Bernhard and the family after seeing this. I have a feeling that this actually might have a positive effect on the way we think of the Kingdom of the Netherlands...
