At the risk of being vulgar, does anyone know about the finances of this family? I assume Benedikte is on the Danish civil list? Has Prince Richard had a career? I know he inherited a castle, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's very "liquid". Any info would be much appreciated.

I actually managed to find out about the Danish Civil List, at the following website:
The Danish Monarchy - Organisation - State Civil List Annuity

Benedikte receives DKK 1 million per year, which one conversion site puts at EUR 134,306.96. The site says, "For Princess Benedikte, the allowance is to cover representative expenses in connection with official obligations."

What is a Schutzenfest? Are the men in the photo with Princess Benedikte somehow involved in the festival?

Here is the wikipedia-entry of "SchŁtzenfest"! The men in the photo are "marksmen".

Thank you, Principessa! Did Princess Benedikte take part in this event by shooting, or was she just there to observe?

Today Princess Benedicte accompanied Queen Margrethe
to a performance of the ballet 'Giselle' at the Semper Opera
in Dresden, Germany. As it's been an event of Queen Margrethe's
two-day visit to Germany, the pics can be found here:

Wow Benedikte looks incredible. How does she know the bride or groom?

The mother of the groom is a cousin of her husband, I guess.

Princess Benedikte is in South Korea, where she spoke at a women's university:
Benedikte fejret i Sydkorea ‚€“ nu er prinsessen filosof - Royale - BT.dk

She was given an honorary doctorate in philosophy due to her work in promoting the education of women.

According to the article, she does this through her patronage work. The article cites a patronage that has done a lot for Girl Scouts International, which is something that the university works with too. I didn't know this either, but I do think that it is quite the honor for Princess Benedikte to receive this recognition.

Billed Bladet has an article about Princess Benedikte's work as a Danish princess:
Billed-Bladet - Prinsesesse Benedikte - en utrættelig slider

It says that she works tirelessly for her patronages and on official duties.

Pss Nathalie has a new nine week old black labrador puppy called Alice according to Billed Bladet Issue No.44.

There is a photo in that issue. Pss Nathalie's family has had black dogs in the past(perhaps labradors or other hunting and retriving breeds) & Pss Nathalie is carrying on that tradition.

I wonder if Carina has a dog.
