A unique film where we get to follow the Swedish royal family during the eventful year of 2014. We meet the royalties on official trips to countries such as Tanzania and The Netherlands, as well as on holiday at their beautiful summer residence in southern Sweden. Last year also saw a new member of the royal family, Princess Leonore, and the engagement between Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist.
The year of 2014 was a hectic one for the Swedish royal family, with many representational trips. The film follows Crown Princess Victoria on her journeys to Ghana and Tanzania, and also when King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia visits Amsterdam. We further get to see when Prince Carl Philip competes in a Swedish car rally and when the Queen meets the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafazi.
In February 2014 Princess Madeleine and her husband Christopher O’Neill had a daughter, Princess Leonore. The baby was born in New York and she is the second grandchild of the Swedish King and Queen. In the film Princess Madeleine and Mr O’Neill talk about their new life as parents, and also about their future plans.
In June Prince Carl Philip announced his engagement with Sofia Hellqvist, after a few years relationship. In an interview the couple talk about their engagement and what it was like meeting their respective parents-in-law for the first time. Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist are planning to marry on the 13th of June 2015 in Stockholm.
The film also contains unique footage of the whole Swedish royal family on vacation at their summer paradise Solliden, located on the island of Öland. It is a very laid-back family we meet, playing and relaxing around their beautiful villa with the family’s newest members, 2-year-old princess Estelle and newborn princess Leonore.
