Her younger sister Savina is already engaged since last year so that might not be true. :whistling:

They got engaged not sooner than on 26 September, so they probably are still unmarried; weddings in "colder half of the year" are not so popular, and organizing the wedding requires time.
I already corrected my post.

Camilla and her sisters aren't countesses anymore because of their marriage to commoners. In Denmark there's a differentiation between the titles of unwed daughters of a count - komtesse, and the wife of a count - grevinde.
