Re: Prince Nikolai promoting a car rental causes trouble for Danish Court
It doesn't seem to me (from the image posted) that he's being used as model here but rather this looks like somebody promoting something he got free or at discount. Like a celebrity on instagram......
Did anyone object to his promoting fashion brands, or was it just the car rental? Was there anything specific about this particular company, or is it just the principle of a prince advertising for a private company which caused concern?
Prince Nikolai recently went along with a promotion for a Danish car-rental which caused several raised eyebrows & questions to the Danish Court, who have now acknowledged that it was a rather unfortunate thing to happen....
"- Kongelige markedsfører ikke virksomheder eller produkter. Prins Nikolai beklager fejltagelsen, som der nu er rettet op på, lyder det fra kongehusets kommunikationsafdeling..."
That's as close as an excuse as one can get from the Danish Royal Press Dep.
However, apart from the fact that the Prince will participate in a fashionshow in Tokyo his mother's secretary made it known he wants to start a new study, next year. Until then the Prince will have to find another, less commercial way to earn his living.
