Well, I think since the groom is still quite young and about seven years Diana´s junior they may have been asked by Diana´s family to prove their relationship very seriously before marrying. After all those obvious bad experiences of Diana with partnership they might try to avoid another wrong decision....(what I fear will happen again... )
What else I wonder: Do Bjoern and Sandra still have no children? They are married for some years after all by now.

Count Lennart Bernadotte and countess Sonja Bernadotte put the entire Mainau under the umbrella of a foundation in 1974. I have read from somewhere that they did it to avoid inheritance disputes with the children from Lennart's first marriage. The foundation’s goals include promoting science research, conservation of the countryside and protection of the environment, historic buildings and monuments and local habitats. The business was renamed the Blumeninsel Mainau GmbH in 1991, the sole shareholder is the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation.
Bettina and Björn Bernadotte are both managing directors of Mainau GmbH. Björn Bernadotte is also the managing director of the Lennart-Bernadotte-Foundation. Bettina Bernadotte is the president of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings arranged in Mainau. Björn's wife Sandra is responsible for the events and dinners organized in Mainau. Björn and Sandra founded in 2010 of Sandra's initiative Café Vergissmeinnicht to Mainau. Diana Bernadotte has her hat studio at the Mainau Castle. Catherina Ruffing Bernadotte is a board member of the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation. Her husband Romuald Ruffing lost his job as a financial expert in Mainau in 2008. Wolfgang Christian Bernadotte has been active in the island administration, I don't know if he still is.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte attended on Thursday evening at the Caritas Italiana charity evening at the Italian Embassy in Stockholm. Caritas Italiana is a pastoral organisation of the Italian Bishop’s Conference. It connects 220 diocesan Caritas, committed in their daily activities to support the most vulnerable people. Caritas Italiana is engaged in many areas including: peace, old and new forms of poverty, volunteering, civil service, immigration, mental health and homelessness. Caritas Italiana works as part of the Church to raise awareness on issues around charity, care for those in need and promote the importance of concrete actions for the poor.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte is a well-known philanthropist, she is involved in at least The Marianne Bernadotte Scholarship Fund for Prominent Dyslexia Research and Education, The Bernadotte Foundation for Children’s Eyecare and The Marianne & Sigvard Bernadotte Arts Fund.

She is also a member of Stadsbrudskåren, which consists of some 25 interesting women and was founded in 1965. It's purpose is to raise funds which are then donated to support vulnerable women and children in Stockholm. Over the years the money has come in through a variety of channels. Own concerts, the members worked on major events and auctions in which both their artwork but also their services have been available for sale are some examples.

Video of the spring at the Mainau Island, count Björn and countess Bettina are interviewed. I think this is a couple of years old. What a wonderful place it is.

Countess Sandra Bernadotte delivered the diploms at the 29th International Mainau Youth Games. The Lennart Bernadotte Foundation has since 1986 organized the Youth Games. 16 schools from Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland took part. They had to go a course with a total of ten stations. The first task was a musical performance "Mainau May music" on theme "Journey through Europe".
At the other stations they had to solve tasks about nature and the environment in the areas of water, forest, animals and garden.

An absolutely great documentary about count Lennart Bernadotte and his families has been shown on ARD last December. Count Lennart tells about his grandparents, his parents, his life, there is a lot of old film material. His children continue his work: Catherina, Bettina, Björn, Diana and Björn's wife Sandra are interviewed. Also Lennart's children from his first marriage, Birgitta and Jan are interviewed. Birgitta and Björn visit the house their grandparents lived in Stockholm, they visit the Royal Palace and see once again the lovely boat where Lennart, Sonja and their children spend some time in Sweden during the summers. Birgitta was often with them.

So half-siblings have to have a strong bond between each other, despite enormous age differences (Birgitta could have been a grandmother to Diana)
