Prince William on German TV/Prinz William im Programm

I was surprised to read that German public TV will be having live coverage of Prince William’s graduation parade at Sandhurst tomorrow morning, as was Daland Segler in the Frankfurter Rundschau:

Klagen über das miese Fernsehprogramm gehen stets an der Sache vorbei: Denn frei nach Goethe – “Wer vieles bringt, wird manchem etwas bringen” – findet sich im täglichen Angebot immer noch der eine oder andere Beitrag, der dem einen oder anderen zusagt. Nun aber hat die ARD eine Klientel entdeckt, die sie bislang vernachlässigt hat: die Kommissköppe.

  1. Does anyone actually watch this? … said he expecting the answer “yes”….
    It always dumbfounds me how Germans seem to love the British monarchy more than the British themselves…


  2. There’s this reporter Rolf Something-Eggesomething who goes on uninterruptibly for ages and doesn’t recognize any of the people he sees, who is their royalty expert. I think they regard him as royalty by association and let him have his way.
