Summary of article in Billed Bladet #16, 2014.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

While Annelise Weimann visited Benedikte to take a long stroll down memory lane (more on that later), she bumped into Nathalie and her son Konstantin in front of the Schloss.
3½ year old Konstatin is attending kindergarten in the forenoon, while Nathalie goes riding.

And she provides us with a lot of details of their every day life.

"My son understands everything you say to him in Danish and that's what's most important. But he sin't so fond of speaking it. He can say the colors though.
Konstantin, what's the color of your blouse"? - "Blue".
And your shoes"? "Green".

"My mother always speaks Danish to him, because I've asked her to and I mostly speak Danish as well. But his father only speak German, he attends a German kindergarten and we live in Germany, so it's a bit tricky".

"I've never had a nanny for him, but always looked after him myself. I I have to do something in the afternoons, I have a very sweet (female) friend, who live right next door, who looks after him. My mother also takes care of him from time to time, that's easier now he has become so big/grown so old. But back when he still used a diaper, it wasn't easy". (*)

Q: You live right next door to your parents. Do you see each other often?
N: "Days can easily pass where we don't see each other much. We don't dine together so often any more. We stopped doing that when Konstantin grew a little bigger and no longer needed his midday nap. Instead he gets tired around 19.00.
And if I bring him over for dinner in the evening... well, then it isn't so good for the relationship between him and my father. Because my father isn't so patient with small children who are tired". She ends this...interesting...sentence with a big smile. (**)

(*) So major yukk, from Benedikte when it's time to change diapers? You can always hold the little critters in the arms and hose them down. They may squeal a little but nothing a good therapist can't handle later on in life.

(**) There are times when I really want to hit Prince Richard on the head with a big shovel! Come on, he's your grandson! Tug him in for the night. Tell him how the Big Bad Wolf used a 600 mm bazooka to blast down the houses of the Three Little Pigs and how the pigs hired a hitman to get rid of the wolff eventually.
Richard comes across as a very egocentric person.

I laughed so much when I read your last paragraph:biggrin: but yeah, I share your feelings. Prince Richard must be a very difficult man to deal with.:bang:

:previous::biggrin: When Princess Nathalie retired her champion horse Digby I thought that now was a good time for a 2nd child. It seems that she and Alexander thought the same! Congratulations to the family!:flowers:

Incorrect. Alexander's father is Heinrich-Wilhelm Johannsmann and his mother is Jutta Johannsmann (née Henkenjohann). Ann-Katrin Johannsmann, I've always presumed, is his sister (or cousin) and Michael Adolph is her husband.

Anna2002 01-16-2015 04:49 PM

I find it hard to guess how they might possibly name the baby

Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein is the new national coach of the Danish dressage team
Quote:

International top rider, Olympic bronze medalist and recognized coach Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein will become the new coach of the Danish dressage team. She takes over from German Rudolf Zeilinger, who has held the post for 19 years.

Highly qualified rider taking the reins of the national team
She has been an international top rider (Grand Prix level) for 15 years and she has represented Denmark at seven European Championships, three World Championships and two Olympic Games, where she was part of the bronze winning team in 2008 in Hong Kong. She has been trained by some of the world's finest dressage coaches, and for several years she served as coach of top riders in the UK, Australia and Denmark. Now she's ready to take the reins as national coach and lead Denmark to success at the championships to come.

"I am really looking forward to the position as national coach of Denmark. It is a new and exciting challenge, which means a lot to me. I hope that I, along with the riders can form a strong team for the future and continue the good development that Danish dressage has undergone in the recent years, "says Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein.
Very exciting news for Nathalie. And very well-deserved, methinks. She's an excellent rider.

Sad days for Princess Nathalie: her beloved horse Digby has died at the stables at Berleburg Castle last weekend. The 23-year-old show horse she has competed with for years, had to be put to sleep due to an illness:

:previous: I am very sorry to hear about the death of Princess Nathalie's beloved horse Digby. https://eurodressage.com/2020/10/06/...by-passed-away

Looking over pictures of he and Nathalie from the Eurodressage website he was a beautiful horse known as a Danish Warmblood bred specifically as a competition horse. He was bred by Nathalie's mom, HRH Princess Benedikte of Denmark, at their home, Castle Berleburg in Germany. As a 3-year old he was licensed and performance tested as a breeding stallion for Danish warmblood, but his career lay in dressage and he was gelded to be focused on sport. The dark bay made his debut at Grand Prix level in 2005 and became one of Denmark's strongest performing team horses to date.

REAL COUNTESS 10-07-2020 02:58 PM

What a beautiful horse Digby was. Understandable she is sad.
