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}.
