  1. I know that I am on a "lonely planet" on this topic, but I persist in seeing more the superficiality aspect of this subject, at this time of great suffering for large parts of the world, and of need for large amounts of money to fight the monster, to relaunch the economy etc. I hope I don't spoil the pleasure. I am however interested in the subject, later... A question of mindset.

    1. Yes, it's definitely a question of mindset. If you choose to suffer and only care about the bad things, then that's how your mindset will be. If you choose to look for small things that brightens your days and cherish those moments you'll find that you have those small happy moments in your life.
      Seeing this documentary was, without a question, one of those happy moments that brightened my day.

    2. Good grief, MaryT, is everything else supposed to stop just because of Covid? This documentary was probably long in the making, it's being shown now and being kept available for six months. Can we not watch something for one hour (two hours total) to get our minds onto something beautiful and fascinating and away from 24/7 Covid? There is always sickness and death around us. When is the best time then?

      It was wonderful to watch these two programs on some of the Swedish royal jewels.

    3. Aww MaryT I really, really understand how, for some, times like this or even for others it is specifically the timing of things in a current moment in life can certainly make something like this feel frivolous, superficial and unnecessary. I have also had moments where something awful has happened and the time felt like more a time of mourning or being somber no matter what I looked at. There are other times, and other people, who need the sweet relief of something not so somber during these times. For me, right now, this feels like a sweet moment to lay down those more serious burdens to look at something well made with history connected and remove all thoughts of financial, societal, or more serious aspects of these things. For me the show Downton Abbey was like that at times - pretty to look at but the dynamics of class, harshness were there to get my “hackles up”. Maybe with having our kids all home I have felt the need to cultivate peace and look for fun in the midst of the difficulty.
      Blessings to you and your family.

    4. A very nice and sensitive comment by Glo for MaryT. It's a subject that I have a great passion for. However, I'm going to put it on hold to view, as for me, the timing is not right. Because of the way I'm feeling at the moment it might, as GLO said "get my hackles up". I'm sure there will be an English version done as it is a subject that draws great viewing audiences.

  3. Lovely segment the 2nd part. The jewels are stunning. The is lots more in the vault, maybe they should make a part 3 and 4.

    1. I agree! For example, Silvia has her Edward VII tiara which has a colourful history, to say the least. The documentaries were fascinating. And we can only hope Maxima takes the hint and does a documentary about the Dutch jewels. I live in hope!

  5. Victoria’s hair looks so pretty here — the little bit of lift and softness that it’s been given is so becoming to her, much more flattering than the severe, scraped-back style. She looks quite lovely in the delicate white jacket and blouse, too.

    2. Je suis entièrement d'accord avec vous ; cela concerne également d'autres langues utilisées lors de vidéos !

    3. If you watch on Google Chrome and select English as the language, it automatically translates the subtitles for the hearing impaired. However, some of the translations are a bit wild (as are most automatic translations) but still understandable.

    4. If you switch on the Swedish subtitles and the google auto translator,the subtitles get translated to English as well. It is not a perfect translation though,as I'm sure the royals don't call tiaras 'delicious'.
