What is their connection to the RF? I know they have the same surname, but I'm not sure of the connection.

There are several non-dynastic males whom are titled Bernadotte of Wisborg, but this thread mainly focuses on the ones from Mainau, the family of the late Count Lennart Bernadotte of Wisborg. Lennart was the son of Prince Wilhelm (son of King Gustav V) and Princess Maria (Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia)

Oh, cool!
I just learned today that Bettina speaks fluent Swedish! Didn't know that, she seemed to completely German to me.

The husband of Countess Catherina Bernadotte is fired as head of controlling of the island Mainau: Ehemann von Mainau-Gräfin verliert Job | suedkurier.de

He started in marketing in 2004, married 7/7/2007 . Also 2007 he was appointed to be the Controller.

So really, it is expansive!

What is fair though, is the season ticket. It is available for one year starting the day you buy it, e.g. 9-9-2008 to 9-8-2009. I appreciate this handling. However I decline that one has to pay additional entrance to the island for going to a concert or another event! In Salem for instance you pay the concert ticket only and entrance to the castle is included.

Differenzen zwischen Gräfin und Schwager | suedkurier.de

The wife - Gräfin Catherina - and her two cents of wisdom concerning the affair. Sometimes silence is golden .... I don't see any good in communicating these things via a newspaper. If her husband and Gräfin Bettina had agreed upon silence, she should have followed suit.

No, she is the widow of the late Count Sigvard, born Prince Sigvard, the second son of King Gustav VI Adolf and his first wife Crown Princess Margaret.

Nice picture of Countess Bettina Bernadotte Haug during the opening of this year's meeting of nobelprice-laureates. Next to her you can see Annette Schavan, the German minister for education.

In particular I like her hat

Does anyone know how much the children of Lennart and Karin are in contact with the children of Lennart and Sonia?

Thank you!

Thank you!
The children of Lennart and Sonja has, as far as I know, a very good contact with the eldest one in the family of brothers and sisters; Birgitta (m. Straehl), who actually lives near Konstanz and Mainau. She is often present at family meetings in Mainau.

The relationship with Jan and Cecilia isn't very good. As you can see in this thread, they were not even mentioned in Lennart's obituary notice...
