In the end of the article they are discussing the Ausgleichsfonds and that some may consider it unfair. Was there adiscussion about it in Bavaria recently?
There was some critic from "Die Grüne" members about the privilegies some of the Wittelsbach Family members have due to the Fonds.

No the Interview took place at Tegernsee Castle which is now owned by Duke Max. Possenhofen Castle doesn't belong to the Family anymore.

He was honoured as an "advocate for the parliamentary democracy" and for his efforts to "make modern art available for the public".

The ceremony took place at Bellevue Palace in Berlin today, February 23.

He seems to be a pleasant man - but I also have a Wittelsbach bias :)
Congrats to the Duke!

Thanks you iceflower.

I googled the duke and his kreuz but sadly I could not find more photos. I saw that the prince and princess of Prussia attended the Ceremony, but did any members of the Duke's family?

Great Pictures and thanks Stefan for sharing them.

Prince Heinrich is not the Sun of Prince Poldi and Princess Ursula ?

Henriette's tiara is the same as Duke Max daughters wore a their Wedding ?

Who will be Duke Max's Heir , as He have only daughters (5), Heinrich's older Brother ?
Thanks for answer.
I saw our Princes de Ligne , and Duke Franz of bayern with Don Duarte of Bragancia's wife.
