The Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, celebrated his first-ever hat-trick (against Porto last week in the Champions League) by inviting his royal girlfriend, Baroness Caroline Luel-Brockdorff, over to London for a night out in central London.
Baroness Caroline is a 34 year-old divorcee who got a £400m pay-off when she split from her banker husband Rory Fleming.
She originally shot to fame in her homeland on a reality TV show, when she was filmed renovating her castle, which is where she met Nicklas when he did a guest appearance on the show.
In Denmark their love affair is seen as a “fairytale” due to her Royal connections, and a Danish commentator told the Sun: “There have definitely been a few eyebrows raised about the age gap and the difference in their personalities.
“But overall, people here are really delighted for them both.”
The Arsenal striker and the Baroness have become “an item” over the last few months, and are rapidly becoming the Posh & Becks of Denmark, especially since Nicklas won the Danish Player of the Year award.
They certainly seem very happy together. Anyone fancy a Danish?
