Hello toniamw,

Prince Gustav was engaged a few years ago to Elvire de Rochefort, but the engagement was broken off after about a year. It was rumored that Elvire's father could not accept the financial amount to be given to Elvire or something to do with finances. Many people in the Danish press dubbed her and her family "gold diggers" who were only after the prince and his family for their pedigree, status and money. But Prince Gustav nor his parents or anyone else close to him ever commented on it, so who really knows the truth?

I have not heard much about his love life and whether he is seeing anyone in particular. But with someone that good looking, you have to think he can't have much trouble getting a date! :P

At the SRMB there was a thread about him dating a girl named Katherine, with rumors of engagement.
Netty's Royalty Page has a picture of him under the princes' section

If you check out the two threads entitled Princess Benedikte and Family in this forum there are pictures of him with his parents and sisters. I just added 3 pictures last night of the 2002 hunt, but not of this year's.

I saw his name on a guestlist on another board. Well 2002 or 2003 he still looks good to me.

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?

Well, she certainly seems to be nice. She cried a few times I noticed just like everybody else. I seem to recall somebody saying that Gustav looked bored at the wedding. I hope it is the beginning of a relationship if it is true.

Well the tabloid is naturally focusing on the possibility of having one of HRH Crown Prince Frederiks closest friends and relatives romantically involved with the best friend of HRH Crown Princess Mary. In that sense it almost sounds to good to be true.

Yes it would be to good to be true and it takes a special girl to move across the world and learn a new language, german in this case. Earlier this year on Netty's board, rumors had Gustav dating an English girl. He doesn't work in London anymore, going back to Germany to help run the estate while Prince Richard was undergoing cancer treatment.

To btsnyder: He is the son of HH Prince Richard of Berleburg and HRH Princess Benedikte of Denmark, and the nephew of HM Queen Margrethe.

Personally I think the press needs a good story while F&M are on their honeymoon and Gustav makes a better story than pairing Amber with Prince Nicholas of Greece.
Apparently the story first emerged in an Australian newspaper, if memory serves me it was the Daily Telegraph, so maybe the Australian media is just trying to prolong the frenzy regarding fridays wedding. Who knows? :P

He can't help it, in that respect he is just like his father HH Prince Richard. Eventhough they both have plenty of humour and plenty of experience in participating in events like the wedding, they often look as if they'd rather be somewhere else. :P

He seems to be a very nice person. I did notice that he didn't seem to tolerate the press Thursday night, going into the festivities.
All of Princess Benedikte's children seem to be rather private, which I like. They are not showy as some Royals. Yet the Danish Royal Family seem to be indicative of their people; down to earth.

Hence the continued high approval ratings of the monarchy itself on a whole. And add into it all, the wonderful Queen that is Margrethe and you start to see the reasons for the popularity more clearly.

Never really understood why people regard us Danes as being down to earth, at least not anymore than the people from other Nordic countries.

It would be so great if HH Prince Gustav could find love, I was so sad for him when the romance with Elvire ended. And it would be so nice for HRH Crownprincess Mary to have one of her friends so close by.

Wasn't in the country when the Elvire-engagement ended, do we know why?

From what I remember, I think it had to do with the marriage settlement(or prenup agreement). I think her family wanted a lot of $$$ in case of a divorce. Of course we really don't know, but I read on other boards that she had another engagement with a French noble fall through(before Gustav) because her father pressed for big $$$ in case of a divorce. But perhaps her and or her groom in both cases got cold feet, who knows what really happened.

I remember this too, the papers were calling her a golddigger, and claimed that it was HH Prince Richard who put his foot down saying that the Berleburg-family would not accept the financial agreement Elvire (or her family) had proposed. She really sounded awfull the way she was described back then, but you are right perhaps we will never know the truth.
