Maybe she let herself be introduced as Czartoryska y Borbon - the Spanish way to use both father's and mother's last name? I think I read somewhere that she run the London marathon lately? Have to check.
I found this short biography of her on the web:
was born in 1978 the daughter of Prince Adam Karol Czartoryski
, who is a cousin of King Juan Carlos I, King of Spain.
HRH Princess Tamara
appeared in Channel 4's The Games
in 2005, with the likes of Anna Walker
, and according to the Channel 4 site Tamara
left school at 15 and pursued a career in show jumping, presented a Thai Kick boxing show as well as appearing in Full Throttle Famous for Granada and Celebrity Five Go Dating.
This all has the ring of plausibility. Tamara Czartoryski
father is a martial arts expert, and Tamara
was a showjumping expert in Channel 4's Faking It
in February 2004. In Nancy Banks-Smith's review of the show
it refers to Princess Tamara
having acted in Carry On:
"There were three judges in Faking It (Channel 4). Lord Patrick Beresford, silver-haired scion of a noble house. Dr Dallas Burston, trust him, he's a doctor. And Princess Tamara Czartoryski
, Carry On actress and horsey cousin of the King of Spain. Which do you think is the fake? That was my feeling too. Even with a swig of Pol Roger, I found it hard to swallow Princess Tamara Czartoryski
, who ran in the 2006 London Marathon
is a keen snowboarder, water skier, skydiver and kick boxer. She has presented Thai Kick Boxing, Full Throttle and Celebrity 5 Go Dating.
She has also filmed a childrens show Its a Girls Thing for Sky One Mix and the ITV drama The Stepfather.
