Transcript:
I see.
The female is the carrier.
The mother gives
it to the son.
Your mother got it
from her mother, Queen Victoria...
...and passed it on to you.
It strikes some males
and misses others.
Of Victoria's four sons,
just one had hemophilia.
And just one of mine.
Some hemophiliacs grow up to lead...
...quite long and normal lives.
And some do not.
The chemical that makes
the blood clot is missing.
When he cuts himself,
he bleeds extensively.
Then we'll see to it that Alexis
does not cut himself.
It's more than that.
A surface wound...
Let me.
They tell me cuts
don't matter much.
They tell me if Alexis cuts
his hand, they tie it very tight...
...and after a little while
the bleeding stops.
It's when he bleeds inside...
Inside?
They tell me any bump
can make him bleed inside.
One never knows.
