The show, In Search Of (hosted by Leonard Nimoy) did a show on Anna Anderson, back in the late 1970's.  They interviewed her and her husband, Jack. 

Of course, Jack did most of the talking.  When AA spoke, it was in a thick accent with broken English.  She clearly was not familiar with the English language, as the real Anastasia would ahe been.

The interview with the Kaiser in English was part of a TV programme called 'The Real Kaiser Bill' shown in 1998. You may be able to find it on YouTube.

I've never heard a recording of the Crown Prince, but as he grew up in a more German milieu, I would expect his English to be more accented than his father's.

By contrast, Prince Friedrich Wilhelm, one of Louis Ferdinand's sons, was interviewed for the 1998 programme, and sounded almost entirely English.

Sounds like an interesting show, Ann.  I'll see if I can track it down.
