It amazes me that no one has seen a copy of the actual will. I believe that I read somewhere that Richard's brother, Robin, was the one who was enforcing the will.

Did anyone else read this anywhere?

Carina made a very similar interview with the Swedish mag Svensk Damtidning just before christmas. It was pretty much the same questions and answers although it was made by their own reporter, who posed for photographs with Carina in one of the grand rooms at Schloss Berleburg.

Maybe Carina is tired of the "we can't marry because of the will" talk and uses these articles to quiet down expectations.

I mean you can't get an clearer than say I don't want to marry.

Why should anyone have access to it? In Germany, you don't need to make it public.

Thank you Sterchen for enlightening me.

I am very surprised that she would talk about Gustav's family that way, IMO she made it seem like all is not well with her and his family. IMO this is not a very flattering interview.

I agree with you Vesper it's really not a flattering interview.
What's happening to her?
I wonder what would be the reaction of Gustav's family.
When you are an adult you keep family stories secret especially when you are part of a well known family.
I was favorable to her and sad because she can't marry her lover but now I am disappointed.Being part of royal family is not simply wearing a tiara and gala dress,you are also expected to remain loyal to them.

I don't think it only is like that with royal families

Well, that interview was unusually frank!! I got the impression that Carina is either a very upfront and direct woman, or she's reached the end of her rope, especially with Richard. Normally I think a family, royal or not, should stand together in public and refrain from airing their dirty laundry, but Prince Richard himself has broken this rule in the past and has made statements about his wife and her family that I thought bordered on rude, so I can't say I have much sympathy for him now that he's getting a taste of his own medicine.

I said it before and I will say it again, she has become more "Royal" than the Royals.

It has always seemed to me that maybe prince Richard was a bit uptight and rough in a way but .. this interview I think says it all. Maybe Carina is just so fed up with the fact that her situation may not ever change - let's hope it will but nothing it's certain-. I've been searching through the internet interviews of Prince Richard but I seem to find nothing that could tell me more about how he is. I'd appreciate some help on this.

Has this happened before?

Diana aside, has there been another occasion where a woman or man has been in a committed relationship/married into a royal family and given an interview where they speak about that family in such a manner? Even Diana waited until her marriage was completely broken before taking to a media offensive - and IIRC directed most of her criticism at Charles and Camilla.

I don't know much about Carina, but as more is revealed I am less and less impressed. Would any of the current crop of crown princesses/prince have made it to the altar if they had said such things publicly? Can you imagine if Daniel had remarked about the King CG's demeanor or said that he made it difficult for he and Victoria to have a relationship? Or if Mette-Marit had criticized the Norwegian royal couple for putting obstacles in front of her marriage to Haakon?

Even with the long list of former lovers/relationships, I don't recall anyone making such statements. Didn't Eva Sannum speak publicly about her relationship with Felipe? But even with that, she didn't speak unflatteringly about JC and Sofia.

For someone who seems to have done quite a bit of research about her sitiuation, Richard being a rather gruff/humorless person should have been no surprise to Carina. Nor is it news to anyone who follows the Danish royals. And perhaps there is more to this than we know/Carina revealed. Maybe what has appeared to be embracing her as part of the family has been an act and Benedikte, Margrethe, and all the rest have treated her poorly and been difficult to live with. If that is the case, perhaps she should have packed her bags, left the palatial home, bank account, fancy parties, and borrowed tiaras...and returned home to her own family (if they would have her - as she seems to be rather distant with them as well).

Well as even Princess Benedikte herself and her husbond has stated that he is a walking temper tantrum there is nothing to be alarmed about.

Actually Carina gives a very positive impression IMO. She makes a big effort to involve princess Benedikte eve when she isn't obliged to.

Unhappy

he should say bye bye to her and marry a noble woman like his grandfather said in last will. because if the poor woman wants children they will be born out of wedlock. and if they marry he loses everything. he should be more clever.

As it happens he is loving Carina and finding love is worth more than any enheritance.

My opinion, to Gustav, love is not worth more than any inheritance, because he would had married her and let the castle go to the next heir.

I'm not sure I understand you.

When Gustav is loving Carina are you then suggesting that he should marry some one else. And who should this unhappy woman be - living in a loveless marriage becuase of what?

What most don't take into account, what if the next heir (who would inherit if Gustav would marry) doesn't want to take over the estate and made it quiet clear that he was unwilling so change his life so he can take over? What is Gustav supposed to do, let it all go down the drain?

michelleq, I think is trying to say that Gustav doesn't love Carina enough to marry her and throw away his inheritance and whatever he would loose.

And where does love come into this?
Your saying he should basically marry to keep his inheritance.

I think the next heir (Prince Robin?) is watching this closely and will enforce the will if Gustav marries. I've read this before but unfortunately I can't remember where I read this. I don't think it would go down the drain. To me, it seems that the estate is more important to him than marrying Carina. Or course, there's the added pressure of the fact that Gustav wouldn't be the only one "homeless" if he lost the estate. His parents and sister would be affected also.

(Of course, I highly doubt that they'd be living on the street if they lost Berleburg)
