Nicklas Bendtner has been seen stepping out lately with a certain Caroline Iuel-Brockdorff, a member of the Danish royal family worth £400million (~$675 million!) who also happens to be 13 years older than the Arsenal striker. The royal WAG, who spends most of her time in London, actually gained most of her money in her divorce from uber-rich banker Rory Fleming (obligatory mention that he is the cousin of James Bond creator Ian Fleming here). Umm, does that mean the Danish royal family isn’t well-off?
They apparently met during a reality show in which her ancestral home, Valdemars Castle, was being renovated. Now, I have no idea why she would need a reality show to renovate the castle, or what role Bendtner played (is he secretly the Danish Ty Pennington?), but it’s clear that the inner-workings of the Danish royal family are a little different (although Iuel-Brockdorff appears to only be a Baroness; insert G.I. Joe joke here).
Considering that Little Nicky will be out for at least a month after his recent groin surgery, it’s a good thing that he has a quiet place at which to recover.
