Countess Monica Bonde (the daughter of count Carl Johan Bernadotte af Wisborg) hosted a dinner to her friends at Svensk Damtidning's serie.
Monica tells that when she was a child, neither she or her brother Christian were allowed to go to the kitchen. The housemaids took care of cooking and of the household. Only when Monica got married and got children she really started to cook more. She has made simple food, her children have eaten a lot of panncakes and macaroni, and casseroles. Monica worked 27 years for Svensk Damtidning. She tells that she was raised at a home where order was important. Monica says that her father could not even cook an egg, but he was extremely careful about the food. They had always mealtimes and then the table was set fine with inherited porslin and napkins in napkin rings. They got to learn an exemplary table manners and to thank for the food. And they had many fun parties at home with fine food. There were always exciting celebrities visiting, like Greta Garbo, Jarl Kulle, Holger Löwenadler, because Monica's parents had a wide network and gladly had their friends at home for a nice meal.
Monica (called Mica) was sent to a boarding school for girls in Switzerland, where she would learn both languages, housework and good conduct. But the only thing she learned was to dance, Monica tells with a smile. She instead went into her mother's footsteps and became a journalist. She has three grown children - Ebba, Marianne and Carl Johan - and three grandchildren. She lives beautifully in a villa on Djurgården in a home that contains royal memories, with lots of art and with a lot of things Monica has inherited from her father. The table is decorated with a silver saucer from Gustaf VI Adolf, and the napkins come from Prince Eugen. The porcelain from Gustavsberg she inherited from her father. The champagne glasses are also from Carl Johan Bernadotte. On a table in the lounge there are a variety of silver items which belonged to Queen Louise, and on the walls hangs art, also from Prince Eugen and Crown Princess Margareta.
One of Monica's guests for this dinner was countess Marianne Bernadotte.

The 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting: 600 Young Scientists to Encounter a Record 43 Nobel Laureates
The selection process for participation at this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting has been completed. A total of 600 outstanding students, doctoral candidates and post-docs under the age of 35 will come to Lake Constance from 24 to 29 June. This year’s meeting is dedicated to physiology and medicine and will set two records: 43 Nobel Laureates – more than ever before at a medicine meeting – will take part, and the field of participants, with 84 countries of origin, has never been so diverse.

“This summer we will once again welcome the next generation of top researchers. I find it remarkable that we will bring together more than 80 nations in Lindau and in so doing will not only be able to enjoy an intensive exchange between generations but also one that crosses national boundaries”, says Countess Bettina Bernadotte, President of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. “It is particularly gratifying that 50 percent of the young scientists are women.”

Thank you. I admire countess Marianne Bernadotte and I'm very interested in the extended family members in Mainau. About their work for the Mainau Island and what kind of effect they have on the business life of the Konstanz area and Germany

Countess Bettina and count Björn Bernadotte took part at the Sunday Parade of the Konstanzer Fasnacht (Carnival in Konstanz) on 11th February.

Video from December 2017

Already in 1961, Count Lennart Bernadotte invited experts, scientists and politicians to the island of Mainau to discuss environmental protection with them. As a result, he presented President Lübke the "Green Charter of Mainau".
Countess Bettina Bernadotte explained to Tobias Bücklein in an interview how this came about, what significance the charter had for the protection of the environment and the landscape and how Mainau manages the balancing act between economic success and sustainability.
The interview is done at the library of the Mainau Castle.

It's an amazing insight Count Lennart possessed to discuss environmental issues and their impact on Mainau in 1961, when the global environmental impact would not even cause concern until almost 10-15 yr. later and real concern almost 20 yr. in the 1990's. The orchids in the photos are beautiful beyond belief and I love the photo with the crocuses of spring in bloom.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte delivers the Stockholm Culture Awards this evening
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...28&oe=5B35DAB5

Countess Bettina Bernadotte learned about EiNZIGWARE and the work of Caritas on 15th March.
Give new life to used objects and give new perspectives to people: that's the idea behind the label EiNZIGWARE. Countess Bettina Bernadotte, Managing Director of Mainau GmbH, was impressed by the variety of upcycling products and informed herself about EiNZIGWARE and the work of Caritas.

Count Björn Bernadotte and countess Bettina Bernadotte's husband Philipp Haug were interviewed at ARD's program "Konstanz, da will ich hin!", which was aired on 7th April. Obviously it has been filmed last summer.
It starts at 8.22, first they show the garden and talk with a gardener, then the host talks with count Björn about Mainau and its history. Philipp Haug is interviewed about viniculture in Mainau.

In about a year Dagmar will be the longest living Bernadotte ever when she surpasses her aunt Elsa Cedergren who lived to be 102 years and 11 months old.
