Countess Sandra Bernadotte is interviewed at swiss magazine Saisonküche. It is a monthly magazine about food, cooking, and food culture. She tells that her husband count Björn likes fish sticks. Sandra tells that they have some swedish traditions. And she tells that Björn's mother Sonja Bernadotte introduced her to my duties and explained the rules. About when and what wardrobe is correct, how to behave as a dinner partner and who and when says skål (prost in Swedish). Sandra also did in 2009 a three month internship at the Royal Court in Stockholm. In the morning she learned swedish at school. In the afternoon she worked among others in the castle boutique, in the castle household and the event organizing department.

Well, I think since the groom is still quite young and about seven years Diana´s junior they may have been asked by Diana´s family to prove their relationship very seriously before marrying. After all those obvious bad experiences of Diana with partnership they might try to avoid another wrong decision....(what I fear will happen again... )
What else I wonder: Do Bjoern and Sandra still have no children? They are married for some years after all by now.

Count Lennart Bernadotte and countess Sonja Bernadotte put the entire Mainau under the umbrella of a foundation in 1974. I have read from somewhere that they did it to avoid inheritance disputes with the children from Lennart's first marriage. The foundation’s goals include promoting science research, conservation of the countryside and protection of the environment, historic buildings and monuments and local habitats. The business was renamed the Blumeninsel Mainau GmbH in 1991, the sole shareholder is the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation.
Bettina and Björn Bernadotte are both managing directors of Mainau GmbH. Björn Bernadotte is also the managing director of the Lennart-Bernadotte-Foundation. Bettina Bernadotte is the president of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings arranged in Mainau. Björn's wife Sandra is responsible for the events and dinners organized in Mainau. Björn and Sandra founded in 2010 of Sandra's initiative Café Vergissmeinnicht to Mainau. Diana Bernadotte has her hat studio at the Mainau Castle. Catherina Ruffing Bernadotte is a board member of the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation. Her husband Romuald Ruffing lost his job as a financial expert in Mainau in 2008. Wolfgang Christian Bernadotte has been active in the island administration, I don't know if he still is.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte attended on Thursday evening at the Caritas Italiana charity evening at the Italian Embassy in Stockholm. Caritas Italiana is a pastoral organisation of the Italian Bishop’s Conference. It connects 220 diocesan Caritas, committed in their daily activities to support the most vulnerable people. Caritas Italiana is engaged in many areas including: peace, old and new forms of poverty, volunteering, civil service, immigration, mental health and homelessness. Caritas Italiana works as part of the Church to raise awareness on issues around charity, care for those in need and promote the importance of concrete actions for the poor.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte is a well-known philanthropist, she is involved in at least The Marianne Bernadotte Scholarship Fund for Prominent Dyslexia Research and Education, The Bernadotte Foundation for Children’s Eyecare and The Marianne & Sigvard Bernadotte Arts Fund.

She is also a member of Stadsbrudskåren, which consists of some 25 interesting women and was founded in 1965. It's purpose is to raise funds which are then donated to support vulnerable women and children in Stockholm. Over the years the money has come in through a variety of channels. Own concerts, the members worked on major events and auctions in which both their artwork but also their services have been available for sale are some examples.
