Count Nikolai of Monpezat’s latest feature in El País Semanal is a tale of transformation and self-discovery that melds royal heritage with contemporary fashion. The former Danish prince, stripped of his title in a poignant family decision aimed at allowing a life unencumbered by royal duty, now forges his path in fashion​.
