It was something about an old will, I don't remember the details, I only remember I found it rather outrageous . Not being a lawyer or anything, I wonder how seriously one should take old wills, especially when they are outdated and racist?!? Please, correct me if I'm way off here!
I couldn't believe it myself and having studied law here in Germany, I'm convinced that, as the will according to the media information already has been contested, the court will rule that this passage is void, as it is against the German basic laws of equality of people which were made especially in view of the former racist laws of the Nazi-time.

In an equal case concerning the house of Hohenzollern-Prussia in 2004 the highest court of Germany (Bundesverfassungsgericht, dealing with the human rights as secured in our constitution) ruled that the previous decision of the Bundesgerichtshof (second highest court) to deny a prince of Prussia his inheritance rights because the Hohenzollern houselaws have stated that he should loose his rights if he married a non-protestant or a commoner or both is wrong. Since then another court has been appointed to deal with this prince's rights but AFAIK there is no ruling yet. But the Bundesverfassungsgericht made it clear that any German citizen has a right to choose his spouse without being threatened by the lost of his inheritance, especially as the line of sucession no longer has meaning in our republic. So I guess the court dealing with the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg will come to a similar conclusion, as it can't follow a different line of thought once it's established how our constitution has to be interpreted in that case by the Bundesverfassungsgericht.

Another case was the Leiningen-case in 2000, where the Bundesverfassungsgericht accepted the fact that the firstborn son of the 7th. prince lost his inheritance rights because his father did not consent to his marriage, as the house laws requires. The court stated that the father did not react due to racial or social reasons but because he felt that his son's marriage did not help in saving the inheritance for future generations. Thus it was a personal reason which is valid while a generalised reason like social position or race or religion is not.

The strange thing about it is that I couldn't trace that Berleburg-case in sources dealing with law here in Germany - as if it was information that didn't exist in Germany at all. Thus I wonder a bit.

The picture of Frederik, Mary and christian is adorable, cute little family. Christian has grown since the last time weve seen him. Mary kept it really simple with hair, make up etc, liked the pearl necklace.

The whole family photo was good to see, also good to see all the family together. Hope to see more. The children look like theyre going to have a good time playing with each other

It's nice that they decided to make a Christmasshoot like the Norwegian or Belgian Family.
Felix is so cute. He's more interested in his grandmother's dog then in the photograph.
Btw, what happened to Christian's forehead?

I have been waiting for WEEKS for these cute pictures. I love seeing families together for the holidays. Poor little Prince Christian has a boo-boo on his forehead though! :(

I hope everyone at TRFs had a wonderful Christmas!
Thank you for the charming family Christmas photos. My family and I spent Christmas Day in a cousins house overlooking beautiful Whale Beach. The sky cleared and those who sat out in the sun now are sporting sunburn!

He probably bumped it as he gets more adventurous and confident with his walking skills.

Love the photo of Fred kissing his son. Good to see the whole group of Danish reletives together. Thought an engagement announcement would be made. (Gustav and Carina)

Barber, Alexandra's husband and children aren't in the photos. Perhaps they are spending Christmas with her husband's family this year?

I really adore Christian's little jacket. Dark grey flannel with black velvet piping. Very European.
