Marriage Rules

But surely as his father Richard is the 6th Prince and Head of the Princely House of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, he can determine the Family Laws regarding marriages?

The German Courts have already upheld the legality of Family Laws when Prince Karl-Emich of Leiningen unsuccessfully challenged the Family Statutes in regard to his "unequal" marriage to Gabriele Thyssen [who later married the Aga Khan IV, and since divorced].

A similar situation occurred when Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia unsuccessfully challenged in court the Hohenzollern Family Laws regarding unequal marriages.

These Family Laws cannot prevent a legal marriage, they just state the conditions under which a person remains a Member of the House and who can succeed to the Headship of the House.

Perhaps Prince Richard doesn't wish to change the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Family Laws.

The problem is that Richards father left the entire estate to Richards firstborn son, so Richard doesn't own the castle and all the rest, Gustav does. Therefore the rules laid down in the will can't be changed by Richard.

Even though Prince Gustav owns the Berleburg estate, Prince Richard is head of the house. Can't he decide to create (or better yet, Gustav's Aunt, Queen Margarethe) Gustav's future bride, noble for a day? Wasn't Princess Alexandra made a Princess days before her wedding? Wouldn't this be a way around the law? As for Protestant, that can be remedied by switching religion. As far as Nordic (Aryan) that can be challenged I'm sure.

Also, has Prince Richard or anyone of the family stated publicly the stipulations of the will?

Princess Benedikte awarded a prize for best horsemanship (not sure of the exact event). She was accompanied by Prince Richard and Princess Nathalie.

Thank you for the photos. It's nice to see Princess Nathalie and Prince Richard. I like the group picture and the photo of Nathalie and the dog.

Thanks for the pictures pdas1201! :)

I agree with Alisa that it's nice to see more of Richard and Nathalie.

Richard looks very good. I am hoping that that means that his cancer is clearly in remission?

Here's a picture from B.T. who reports that Princess Benedikte is a dear sight for the inhabitants of the village of Graasten every day during her holiday, when she takes her daily ride which includes the streets of the village.

A new official picture of Princess Benedikte on the Danish royal family's website (but only on the Danish-language version of the website rather than the English one).

That is very sad hearing that Prince Richard's mother had passed away.I'm really sorry for the Prince, Princess Benedikte and the rest of the Prince's family.My prays all for them during these hard times, and wish God rest his mother in peace.
