The Kingdom Behind the Scenes
A television crew is present when key employees in the hub of the royal household plan everything from a state visit to Vietnam, a COP15 dinner with the entire world watching, to summer visits in small towns across the country.
However, the television crew is also present when the royal couple and the crown prince couple assert themselves as employers as well as when they take on the responsibilities, patronages and tasks that constitute the highest offices in Denmark.
The series shows the tasks and red-letter days behind the scenes and according to the dogma:
When it is unofficial, we film it. When it is official, we do not.
We’re right behind the Queen and her family when they step out on the balcony to receive the homage of the people on Amalienborg Palace Square on the Queen’s birthday.
We’re present during the tactical considerations before Crown Prince Frederik attends a press conference about his controversial election to the International Olympic Committee, but we’re also present when he rides his bike to pick up his two children in daycare.
We’re in the maternity ward when the seventh heir to throne is born to Princess Marie and Prince Joachim, who also introduced the concept of divorce in the Royal Family
Through candid interviews and documentary surprises, The Kingdom behind the Scenes gives up-to-date insight into the Royal Family’s work as well as reflections on maintaining the popularity of the Royal Family without them becoming tabloid celebrities on the red carpet.
