Summary of article in Billed Bladet #6, 2014.
Written by Trine Larsen.

Who is a bit of a conflict with herself, because she manages to write that Benedikte intend her 70th birthday to be both low-key and celebrated with some kind of at fairly big party.

Benedikte turns 70 on Tuesday 29th April and is described as being celebrated disceetly. Benedikte is not particular interested in her own birthday she's much more interested in other people's B-days. (*)
She explains: "You shouldn't run away from your age, but remain occupied and enjoy the daily life. A happy life is better than treatments against wrinkles".
As to the birthday: "The preparations haven't really started yet, but I will celebrate the day at home in Berleburg".

(*) Just like me. If it wasn't for Mrs. Muhler I would - well, I do get, my age wrong half the time someone ask me.

With all due respect please allow me to correct a minor geographical hick-up;
Solna is a municipality just north of Stokholm/Sweden (Haga Palace the home of Victoria & Daniel located in Solna) - ARoS is in Aarhus which is the 'capital' of Jutland/Denmark.
Here is a link to the museum:
Ti etager og 17.700 kvadratmeter med dansk og international kunst i hjertet af Aarhus

Thank you, crown! I actually haven't the faintest idea why I ended up writing Solna, there's no logical operation


Here are two more galleries of Benedikte's latest visits:

You are most welcome Iceflower.

I get the impression that Princess B has been taking on more official duties over the last couple of years. This may be brought on by the easy access to the royal calendars. Have you or anyone else noticed PB being busier than usual? (I am not implying that she was ever lazy)

Today Prince Richard of Berleburg turns 80: TILLYKKE: Prins Richard fylder rundt | Billed Bladet

He has made it very clear that he does not want to be celebrated.
Instead he will spend this day with the closest family.

Even though Prince Richard has survived cancer twice, his health is not stated as the reason why he absolutely do not want to be celebrated.

An interview with Prince Richard in German on the occasion of his 80th birthday: Windräder auf dem Reifelscheid? - "Nur über meine Leiche" | WAZ.de

He certainly has his opinions! And don't mind going against the current
A keen advocate for hunting he is very much into preserving the nature and that does not include windmills!

I may understand He is not Prince Henrik's close Friend..
years ago he had critics about the Prince Consort wearing such a lot of Decorations...
The 3 Sun in Laws of the late King of Denmark had totally different lifes.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #46, 2014.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

Prince Richard has only given one interview in connection with his 80th birthday and that was to the newspaper Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung and only becase that papers writes a good deal about hunting.

Prince Richard didn't really want to talk about his birthday, he much referred to talk about the forests around Berleburg, the bisons that have been let lose there and preservation of nature, but he did talk a little about his life though.

The Grim Reaper has reached out for him at least three times. The first time during WWII: "That was during the war and I was a big lad. They tried to bomb the schloss but instead the bomb fell in the park, only 30 meters from me".

The second time was in 1956: "I was driving through a small German town when suddenly a woman appeared on a motorbike. When I tried to avoid hitting her my car began to wobble and it drove directly into a wall and rolled about. I was unhurt and crawled out at once and ran to talk to the woman.
When I returned to the car a police officer was standing looking inside to se whether the driver was still alive. When I said it was me who had driven the car and that was completely unhurt, he didn't believe me".

The third time was recently and here Prince Richard for once listened to someone else: "I have a doctor in Denmark (who is also a personal friend), he checks me regularly. Two years ago he said: You have an aortic aneurysm, you need surgery. Fine I said, we'll fix that next month, when the hunting season is over. Then it's too late he replied, you'll be dead".

Apart from that he has narrowly avoided being crushed under his horse when it tripped.

But what is then the best part about turning 80? - "The fact that I even managed to live long enough to turn 80"!

Many thanks for the translation Muhler. He is an interesting character. I wish him well and Many happy returns for his milestone birthday. He is now in the OBE club. That's Over Bloody Eighties Club!! as they say in some parts here. OBE is generally known as a British award. But some cheeky Aussies call it the former.
