She looks so much younger than 40! I wonder if she wants to have children?

See post number 335 in this thread. Glittering Tiaras did some research, and was able to find her date of birth.

Are you 100 percent sure about this?
In the Danish media she's reported to be 33 years old, or thereabouts!

On 9th June 2008, Carina Axelsson was reading for children from her book, afterwards, the kids asked her about her age and it was not a problem for her to tell everybody she is already 39 years old.

You can read about this at the end of the article in this link:

Viertklässler mutig wie der kleine Drache Nigel - Bad Berleburg - DerWesten

In wikipedia you can also read about Carina and her age, here the link:

Gustav, Hereditary Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes, I am sure of this. Her age was researched and confirmed via Netty Lestria, someone with whom many trust when it comes to accurate information, through California Public Records.

Yes, she is going to be 40 on August 5.

Even the local royalty mag get things wrong! Carina's age has been
confirmed in an interview in this week's issue of Billed-Bladet!

Do you have a link to the article, Viv, we would like to read it if you can find it. Also, CPR don't lie so it seems BB has officially been deemed unreliable in my book. Unless of course Netty made a mistake, but I highly doubt it.

Yes, at 40 it is more difficult to get pregnant that at say, 25 or 30. But it IS possible naturally. Friends of my parents are 44 and expecting a child, this is their fourth and they were very surprised, as there is 15 years between this new one and their youngest. It was 100% natural, no drugs at all. So, if they DO get married and want kids, it can still happen.

Are they going to see Gustav's sister in the Olympics in Beijing?

I've checked the BB website, and there's no reference to the
interview with Prince Gustav and Carina, which took place in
connection with their DRF rally at Graasten Castle. *

Carina says that that she found it amusing that (the magazines)
believed her to be six years younger than Gustav, "however I happen
to be five month older. It's just that noone ever asked how old I am".

The interview also gets into how they met, their daily life at
Berleburg, the acceptance of the family and the population of
Berleburg (where she's known as "Frau Axelsson").

Some of the recent posts here have been about the prospect of
children! BB raised the issue, and Prince Gustav replies:

"It is in the hands of God. Should it happen, I'm sure that
that the family will be pleased".

Which to me sounds as if they have resigned to the fact that
it is unlikely to happen. I've heard of first-timers giving
birth at 42, but I think that it would be very optismitic to
count on it!

Could some kind person translate the article for us who do not have access?

It would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's interesting that they didn't really take the time to correct the misinformation about her age, until a true documented source like the California Public Records were consulted. Then all of a sudden, it's "oh my goodness, tee hee."

Sounds like the media just publishes whatever is handed to them, too. What did someone here call publications like that? Pink press, just for show and not for information.

Somehow, though, from the whole mosaic of this couple, I'm not surprised.

I have just come across this article about Carina renovating some of the rooms at the castle in Bad Berleburg. It is from July, and was posted earlier in German. Here is some of the information about the German article in English:

The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: Carina Axelsson and the castle in Bad Berleburg

I just wondered which citizenship Carina and Gustav have.

I know that Carina's mother is of Mexican origin and her father is of Swedish origin, but she grew up in the USA. So, she's US American.
She is living in Germany.
Did she adopted the German citizenship?

What about Gustav?
Is he having the German-Danish dual citizenship?

That's an interesting question. I doubt Carina has the German citizenship - as with most citizenships you can't just have it whilst keeping another citizenship, let alone as a person who is not related to Germany (eg through marriage or parents / relatives). If Carina has any European citizenship (eg Swedish) she can reside & work in Germany as long as she wants - different story eg for US citizens who require visas or work permits (unless married to a German citizen).

Maybe other posters know more or better (in case I am wrong)

I don't know for sure, but my guess is that Carina has dual US-Swedish citizenship. She has family in Sweden, so it seems logical that she would have citizenship there.

Thanks for your answers.

Another question :
Does anyone know which languages the two speak and which one they use to talk with each other?
