Series about the Swedish royal family planned.
After the success of the Netflix series “The Crown” about the British royal family, there is now also a series about the life of King Carl XVI, Gustaf of Sweden and his family.
Carl XVI Gustaf came to the throne at the age of 27, after the death of his grandfather in 1973. Three years later he married German Silvia Sommerlath, whom he had met at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich. The royal couple has three children, the 43-year-old Crown Princess Victoria, her two-year-old brother Carl Philip and 38-year-old Madeleine.
Comparisons with “The Crown” come to mind, as producer Wallmark Avelin also knows. But the directors of “Monarchy”, as the provisional title of the planned Swedish series is, would not even try to compete with the British production.
