This is on another topic.

It's a Chinese docu covering Alexandra as a person, her life and her children.
It lasts some 45 minutes, with English subtitles.
You can watch it in this article: https://www.bt.dk/royale/alexandra-m...ham-paa-holdet

I can't remember off hand whether this has been shown before. But no time for check gotta go.

It was, early 2019.
I still remember the awkward pause when Felix is asked who watches over him when Alexandra is out of the country. He did not say Joachim, who was still living in Denmark at this time.

So who looks after Felix and why hesitate that much about telling so?

The most natural reply would be that he stays with his father, wouldn't it?
And what would be wrong in that?

If Alexandra is away often, who is looking after Felix?
A friend of Alexandra?
Hardly Martin Jørgensen! But his parents, with whom certainly Felix seems to have a good relationship?

It doesn't make sense to me and I find it pretty odd.

I'll guess that she will be able to sell at or near the price she has set, with a little patience.

At 240 square meters, it's a big house, but not extraordinary big. Some 80-100 Square meters larger than an average family house in DK.
And looking at the floor plan, where is the WC only for guests?
The location (Charlottenlund, a posh part of Copenhagen) is at least half the price IMO.

In the part of DK where we live. I.e. rural but 20 minutes from a major town and 30-45 min to a city, 15 million DKK will buy us a manor house.

Muhler-I was surprised that there was no "powder room" or guest toilet for this house. Looks like the guests have to use the bathroom that her sons use. Which could be quite an adventure for her guests if they're not used to teens/young adults.


Contemporary home with what appears to be a beautiful garden.

Indeed.
For 15 million I want a place where my guests can "wash their hands" preferably two.

Location is an odd thing!
Around where we live such a house (without a toilet for the guests...) would cost 5 million, max. And be in top condition. And have a 24/7 hot-tub for the passing songbirds!
Where my in-laws live it would cost 3 million, tops. But okay, that's out where the pigs wear number plates.
It's probably the Jutlander in me speaking (we have a near and dear relationship with our money) but DK isn't bigger than you can easily get around by car within a reasonable time, so why you'd buy such an expensive house is beyond me.

And I bet the apartment she is going to buy in downtown Copenhagen will cost her at least 10 million, despite being smaller. Normal, reasonably well paid middle-class couples, with steady jobs and a guaranteed steady income for life can hardly afford anything but one bedroom apartments in central Copenhagen.

Thanks, Polyesco.

So that's the one.
BB, that also writes about this story, mention that Alexandra spend a good deal of time visiting her mother around that time.

The house is quite small 240 square meters is about 2583 square feet. My own home is larger than that.
I'm wondering if she is doing it for financial reasons.

Sure Felix will move out soon but he and Nikolai I presume will be visiting with girlfriends. Not to mention her siblings and elderly parents need a room for when they visit.

Perhaps it's an investment?

Is Alexandra allowed to be political given she is no longer a member of the DRF? I didn't know when she was receiving her Appanage people may have seen it inappropriate, for her to speak publicly about politics and also the fact that her public profile is down to her being married to a royal and she is the mother of two Danish Princes and is a Countess, whether these things might make people think it would be unwise of her to discuss politics publicly?

Alexandra has bought a new home.

A 168 square meter Copenhagen city flat for 12 million DKK. (Rough calculations: 6 DKK = 1 $, 7.5 DKK = 1 €, 8 DKK = 1 £)
I Klerkegade to be exact. An expensive apartment building. Here she will live in the ground floor (or first floor I believe it's called in US.)

It's not a small apartment, considering the price. In fact the size of the apartment is equivalent to a family house in the upper average size range in DK.
She is also very much paying for the location.
It's a four room apartment from 1867. It has been up for sale for one month.

Here is a photo of the building: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...jdo2pfjpo3.jpg

Here is another apartment for same in the same building, so you can have a closer look at how it is.
https://www.estate.dk/ejerlejlighed/...e/270210/ec263
This apartment is above Alexandra's, but to the other side.
(Try click on "se flere billeder" in the blue circle in the center.)
Floorplan: https://www.estate.dk/ejerlejlighed/...e/270210/ec263

She has not yet sold her house: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...17-foewhoq.jpg
But if she sells it at full price she will earn a profit of some five million DKK.

Here is a BT article about the homes she has owned since the divorce from Joachim. She has scored a solid profit from the sale of most of the houses she has owned.
It's getting a little too late in the evening for me to go into further details though.

Countess Alexandra has a new boyfriend, reveals the Danish press.
The news was confirmed by Alexandra's press officer.
The boyfriend is Nicolai Peitersen, a businessman who divides his time between Denmark and China.

Congratulations on your first 6.000 posts.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/bt-afsloere...s-nye-kaereste
BT has more.
Nikolai Peitersen is an entrepreneur with investments in Hong Kong, where he has spend a good deal of time. He has now moved his office back to Copenhagen due to the increasing tension between China and USA. That made the placement of his office in Hong Kong too political, he said in an interview to the serious, conservative and business oriented newspaper, Berlingske:
https://www.berlingske.dk/virksomhed...il-koebenhavn#
Specifically, it's the political unrest in Hong Kong that has led to this move.

Anyway, Alexandra has invested in Peitersen's business - presumably that's how they got to know each other.

Nikolai Peitersen is 51, Alexandra 56.

- Well, let's hope she's lucky this time. Her two past romances were less than fortunate. And the marriage to Joachim... At least they are on very good terms privately.

Well he seems better on paper at least and after her ex with the criminal background that she didn't know about, hopefully she's been more careful about things this time. I wish her well.

Nikolai Peitersen has been talking to BT about his relationship with Alexandra.
He is married, but has been separated from his wife for three years.
The reason is that she wish to remain in China with their chidlren, while he moves back to DK.
In order to get the residence permit for her, they had to remain formally married until now.
They expect to be full divorced in a month or two.
Nikolai Peitersen's wife has met Alexandra and approves of the relationship.

Nikolai Peitersen has a brother, Alexander Peitersen, who has been a personal friend of Alexandra for many years.

He expects to return to DK during the summer.

Nikolai Peitersen says:
"We are very, very fond of each other and even thought it's on an early stage, we hope for a long future together. It's a joyous event and all are happy.
I would like to put to rest any rumor about there being any scandal or any drama. I have been separated from my ex-wife for three years, a formal agreement between up regarding our separation has been made. We have not lived together during those three years and it is only due to Chinese rules regarding visa."

It has been confirmed that Countess Alexandra has recently had a facelift:
https://www.bt.dk/det-vi-taler-om/gr...ker-hele-tiden

It was noticed during Felix' graduation that Alexandra had what looked like fresh scars in her face after what appeared to be a face lift.
Her secretary/PR-associate Helle von Wildenrath Løvgreen says to the tabloid BT that: "The Countess feel that the exterior should match the interior. There are many modern women who gets facelifts and recently the Countess got, what you call a mini-facelift.

BB has more: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kendte/i...t-nyt-udseende

Helle von Wildenrath Løvgreen said to BB that:
"Yes, I can confirm that. Countess Alexandra freely admits/acknowledge that she has had a surgical procedure.
Not only because it's obvious but also because the Countess feels that modern women should stand by their choices and not be embarrassed over the fact that they get professional help. It has over time become a natural thing to have done and it's a minority who can say that they haven't had something done.
That is something Countess Alexandra freely admits she has. Eve though it's a private matter Alexandra thinks you should be open and honest for example having cosmetic surgery and do it, if you yourself think something needs to be changed."

Only a week prior to the graduation Alexandra had her eyes fixed and had a small facelift that makes the lower face and neck look better.

Q: But why? She's beautiful as is.
"Yes, but I can only say that Countess Alexandra has felt that her exterior should match her interior. It's after all a personal feeling and completely natural wish."

- Well, while cosmetic surgery has certainly become much more common in DK, I'm far from certain that it is something the majority undergo.
In the segment Alexandra may mingle, but not among the general public as a whole.
Apart from that I really don't care. Her money, her face.
I don't think she needed a facelift though. She looked perfectly well for a women her age IMO.
But if she's happy, I'm happy.

Is this true of wishful thinking by the countess?

Edit: I see you already answered that question; this statement seems to mainly reflect her (skewed) social circle and shows her limited knowledge of the general population.

Not sure what is 'natural' about this wish. While she is free to go ahead, it seems rather unnatural and superficial to me. Nonetheless, I am not surprised as it seems that since the divorce she has constantly tried to look younger than her age.

Alex looked very nice at the graduation and that, ultimately, is the point of getting cosmetic work done. If she wants to disclose and as she says, take some of the hypocrisy down, that's good too.

The only problem is when you start getting cosmetic procedures and you end up forever trying to "improve" yourself and/or not looking so good in the end.

The exterior should match the interior. What, manipulated? Enhanced beyond it's natural state? A untrue reflection of herself? Wow! What a stupid stupid thing to say.

IMO it gives her a strange face, but if she feels like it, she should do it, it is her life !
