Royal Profile: Countess Josephine Caroline Elisabeth of Rosenborg

Countess Josephine Caroline Elisabeth of Rosenborg was born 29 October 1972, one of the twin daughters of Count Christian of Rosenborg and Countess Anne Dorte of Rosenborg {Source}. She has two sisters, a twin and a younger sister Camilla & Fedora {Source}.

Countess Josephine was married on 3 October 1998 to Thomas Christian Schmidt {Source}. Together they have two children {Source}:
  1. Julius Christian Emil Schmidt af Rosenborg (2001)
  2. Clara Dorte Elisabeth Schmidt af Rosenborg (2004)
Due to her father marrying a commoner and him not seeking parliamentary approval, he lost his succession rights to the throne, as did Countess Josephine, her children, and sisters, as well as her nieces and nephews. Therefore, Countess Josephine and her family perform no public functions on behalf of the monarchy. Little is known about her. However, she did attend her father's funeral in May 2013 {Photos}.
