Fresh back from China, Benedikte went to Broholm Slot on Funen, https://wwcdn.weddingwire.com/weddin...t-besk_ret.jpg
for the Danish championships in dressage, in which Nathalie took part. While at the same time celebrating here and Alexander Johannsmann's fifth anniversary.
Benedikte was received by a flowergirl in the shape of two year old Felippa - who didn't see any reason why she should hand over the nice bouquet the adults had given her to a strange lady. So she held on to the bouquet and Benedikte had to move on, but later she got the flowers.
And Benedikte sure has become a mormor! Well, inside the VIP Benedikte was spotted by her grandson, Konstantin, who darted into her arms and gave her a kiss.
Her granddaughter, Louisa, was there too in a stroller. Eighteen months old Louisa at some point voiced her displeasure at mother leaving, so mormor Benedikte had to drive her granddaughter around a bit.
Nathalie told our reporter:
"We almost always bring the children along to competitions. I have a very, very sweet husband and then we have a really sweet horse-girl, who is also half au-pair. So the children always have someone they can go to. And then they also find friends among the other children at the competition.
Yesterday Konstantin was in Legoland with his dad. And that he was very pleased with".
Louisa has grown big I think. Really big. And then she's a determined little girl, who is so
fond of her mother.
Konstantin has grown big and tall for his age, I think. He doesn't feel like riding at the moment. He like to ride a little in the stable. And Fabienne (Nathalie's dressage-horse) is his favorite horse. But he doesn't feel like riding for real yet. And then you shouldn't force anything. Nothing good comes from that".
About the anniversary Nathalie said:
It's probably very symptomatic that we celebrate our anniversary at the Danish Dressage Championships. We got a drink last night on that occasion. It got a bit late because we all had a cozy time outside. But apart from that we haven't celebrated the anniversary".
The scans with Benedikte being mormor as well as M&F at Ascot will be uploaded in the QMII visiting the Faeroe Islands - eventually.
And looking at the pics of Alexander Johannsmann and Louisa, there is no way he can talk his way out of that one!
