I read in a magazine that Prince Richard of Berleberg is ranked in the top 400 of Germanys richest. He is probably involved with Banks and finance.

According to an article from Billed-Bladet Princess Benedikte and
Princess Nathalie attended an auction in Herning this weekend
and sold a three-year old horse to a dressage rider from Sweden.
The horse, called Henry, was born and raised in the royal stables
in Berleburg and was sold for 135.000 Danish kroner, around
18140 Euro. Prince Richard also wanted to attend the auction,
but had to cancel it as to a bad cold. Here's the full article:


** Benedikte tjente 135.000 kr. **

Billed Bladet has an article that shows Princess Benedikte in her home:

Billed-Bladet - BILLED-BLADET hjemme hos prinsesse Benedikte

She was interviewed regarding her sister, Queen Margrethe, in honor of the Queen's upcoming 70th birthday. The short article that I linked advertises the interview, but does not contain the interview. Instead, it has some lovely pictures of Princess Benedikte's living room.

Princess Benedikte has to represent Queen Margrethe as regent, so
she can't attend. Normally Prince Frederik or Prince Joachim could
have done that, but they aren't in Denmark either. Her daughter
Princess Alexandra zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and husband
Count Jefferson von Pfeil are present at the wedding.

Summary of an interview in Billed Bladet #34, 2010.
Jeg har et barn i Afrika - I have a child in Africa.
Interviewer: Annelise Weimann.

Princess Benedikte is patron for the organisation SOS Børnebyerne. The organisations runs a number of orphanages in Africa and donors can opt to support the organisation as a whole or sponsor a specific child, who will write to you regularly so that you can follow the progress of the child. Some even go visit the child.

Benedikte also sponsor a child, in Francistown in Botswana. She opened an orphanage there a few years ago and decided to sponsor a child. She has however opted not to know the indentity of the child.
Benedikte's children have also sponsored a child each.

The next project is to open an orphanage in Burundi. An orphanage consists of six or seven children living together with a "mother", thereby having a sort of family.
The children attend school or kindergarten with other local children and learn to integrate and interact with other children. (*)

Benedikte considers her job as a royal patron to put focus on SOS and to help opening doors.
Benedikte has been patron for fifteen years and she chose SOS because: "It's a relatively small but efficient organisation, which hasn't got a big administration. And it has avoided unfortunate or incrimination situations". (**)

Benedikte is also patron of an association for anorexia sufferes and she recently read a book about the subject which made an impression on her: "...it gave me an insight into how these unhappy girls feel. Some of them become violent towards themselves and start to cut themselves. You really have to be far out to do that. I think it's a contemporary problem, I don't believe it took place when I went to school".

(*) The children are naturally most often shy and reserved and in many cases they come from different parts of the country with a different dialect or even language.

(**) Like: Are there even any children? Are there any orphanages? If there are, are they recieving any money? Other organisations have had to answer these questions, without being able to come up with replies.

Here's the short internet article about it:

** Benedikte har et barn i Afrika **

"It is a lovely home with a lovely atmosphere (..) I was very fascinated by
the place and have signed a sponsorship. I am godmother to the entire SOS
Children's town, so I do not know what specific child I support, but one can
say that I have a child in Africa", Princess Benedikte said to Billed-Bladet.
