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.

Promising series, definitely continuing after seeing the first episode.
10 January 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having seen the first episode, this mini-series looks promising.

While parts of the story are highly speculative, it remains plausible and interesting to watch. The complaint of it being historically inaccurate is uncalled for, it's a series, not a documentary.

The quality of acting is very good, this series features some of the best actors and actresses The Netherlands has to offer at this moment. The script works in a simple but effective way: the old Bernard tells the story of his life to his grand-daughter-in-law Maxima, in a flashback construction, the viewer switches back and forth between the young and old Bernard without it becoming annoying.

Looking forward to the other episodes.
