I'm excited about the news about a Norwegian TV series about Crown Princess Märtha's exile in the US during WW2, including her close relationship with President Roosevelt!

Filming will start this autumn and the series will air on NRK in 2020. The production tema has spent six years researching whether Märtha had an affair with Roosevelt. She was anyways the person he spent the most time with / upon during the entire WW2!

The series is called "Alt for Norge" - All / everything for Norway (the mottos of her father-in-law, her husband and her son). I'm very much looking forward to a series featuring a relationship between a Norwegian royal and a patrician Knickerbocker!
Березы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: «Ивы и березы», 1843 / 1856)
