Wow she seems like a real class-act! :P
It sounds as something that could have taken place centuries ago, arguing over the dowry :P

When I say down to earth, I and many feel that that is one of the highest praises given to any individual, group or in your case, nation. Yes, I have never met anyone from the other Nordic countries, but I am sure that that you are correct. I have made friends from Germany, Denmark, Netherlands and Liechtenstein, and I can state, that as an African American female living in the USA, that the friends that I have made are the most kind, generous and caring people I have had the pleasure to meet. They have never seen my skin color, they see me. Many in my country, and all races are included, can take a page out of your book.

I noticed that when Princess Alexandra and Count Jefferson were entering either the cathedral or the theater that she stopped and told Jefferson that the photographers wanted to take their picture. They both happily complied and the press was happy also.

I remember that, but they are always very complying. He was especially funny when he came out from Rigshospitalet and gave a press-conference when Count Richard was born. He seems really funny in a boyish sort of way. As if he still isn't used to the media etc.

Maybe he is a little distracted still, because of his fathers illness. The papers have written a lot about how he has been a great support for his father during the illness, and maybe it's still there in the back of his mind even though he is at a wedding.

The Danish tabloid "BT" today published the rumour that HH Prince Gustav have invited the maid of honour Amber Petty to visit him in Berleburg next week. Has the Prince finally found someone to replace Elvire?
The article in BT actually quotes the australian paper The Daily Telegraph. Accordingly, Amber Petty has told a journalist, that she was invited by a german prince to come an visit him.

BT than makes the guess, that this prince might be Prince Gustav:

http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=276646/

However, the article was published more than a week ago by now, and to my knowledge, there have been no reports since.

Does anyone know the paper The Daily Telegraph? To me, it seems odd, if AP would have told a journalist such a thing...

It actually came from a very very short article. I wouldn't even call it an article. You know how they have a section in the newspaper where inconsequential/social things go? Well Daily Telegraph has that and they call it "Sydney Confidential" (I think) and leading up to the wedding, they called it "Copenhagen Confidential". Anyway I think the "I've been invited to Germany" thing came from a very short thing there... probably 5 lines (and you know how skinny newspaper coloums are&#33.

And now it's "Prince Gustav and Amber Petty". Though I actually don't mind if both of these try it out for a while... they don't have to get married. I hope Prince Gustav finds his girl soon. Maybe if slims down a little, because he seems to have the makings of a hottie :P and he seems nice.

In January/feb...this year...Amber Petty was in a magazine over here, discussing being a bridesmaid at Mary's wedding etc. She appears to enjoy the media attention she receives from being Marys good friend.
I think shes a budding MTV reporter or something...so its all probably good exposure.


Recently I read how she had made reference to being invited to travel by a man she met at the reception, she also made reference to the fact that she had been seated next to two well-to-do men...so it seems she doesnt have Mary's 'quiet' demenour where she holds her tongue on her private life!

Its hard to say really..but just from comments I have read from what shes supposed to have said..and also pics I have seen of her, shes a totally different kind of girl to Mary.

Who really knows of course, as the media love a good story so how much is true and how much is speculation is difficult to say. I am sure given any opportunities though, Amber will make the most of them!

Has anyone heard anything pertaining to Prince Gustav lately? He is very private individual. Is he reported on at all in the German Press? Is he still working at his family's estate or has he returned to London? Also, if anyone have any pictures, please post.


Thanx

The first photo is from 2003 (not sure which event)
The second photo is from the 2003 wedding of Prince Donatus von Hessen
The third photo is an unknown 2000 event
The last four photos are from the engagement.

According to the Queen Victoria's Descendants Companion Volume, Elvire's father wanted a contract that would provide for Elvire in the event of a divorce. Princess Benedikte and Prince Richard refused Elvire's father's request. Gustav and Elvire parted as good friends.

It was posted today that Prince Gustav is now the owner of Schloss Berleburg. It also states that his grandfather's will states that he would lose everything if he marries beneath his station. This was published in the Danish Magazine/Newspaper Se Og Hor. Is he challenging this? That is horrible.

Thanks for the info. So basically, she wanted alimony?

If he marries beneath his station. Are they serious? That is horrible. What happens if he doesn't marry at all?
