Recently, I was ecstatic to discover one of favorite documentaries; “De Kongelige Juveler” (roughly translated to ‘The Royal Jewels‘) back on YouTube. This is one of the best programs to gain firsthand information about the royal jewels of Europe. While the content is in Danish, the royal interviews are in english, and it is very easy to understand.
Part 1- Denmark and Sweden
Part 1 mainly charts the history of the Danish Ruby parure from france to Sweden to Denmark. The programe includes detailed and personal interviews by Queen Margrethe II, Crown Princess Mary, Princess Bendikte of Denmark, and Queen Silvia of Sweden.
Part 2- UK and Russia
The Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara, currently in the UK, if the featured jewel in Part 2 of De Kongelige Juveler. It includes interviews by Princess Olga Romanoff, Prince Michael of Greece, and Prince Michael of Kent.
