Well, is the story made up by BILD or is it actually written down in the book of the count?

I guess most of it written down like that in the book, but I think the storys got a bit "fluffed-up" especially for BILD.
After all he would like to sell his book

There's another story in the Bild with an interview by the same author. He remarks on the eccentricity of the royals particularly the British royals. Some of the stories were previously in the British press but there wasn't the fascination with odd behavior that this author has.

Later he mentions a Crownprincess which tried several times to sneak away to the airport, and to escape to her homeland. By no stretch of imagination I can image Princess Maxima or Mary doing something like that.

In the first episode, the talks about meeting Queen Elizabeth at the occasion of Princes Edwards wedding.
I may be wrong but I believe the story is just a re-tell of an old legend about Queen Sofia (then Princess Sofia). It was speculated that when her children were still very young (Felipe was, if I remember correctly, about 4 or 5), she wanted to walk out of the marriage with Juan Carlos. So she presumably took the children to return to Greece but was stopped by the security guards in the airport, who made it clear that while she was free to go wherever she wanted, her children would not go with her.

I will try to find the book I've read this in, although I'm under the impression it was repeated in more then one place.


Not that I ever believed this rumour myself, I just wanted to clarify the mistery of the airport princess.

I only thought about todays crownprincesses from abroad....
But maybe you are right, and he is talking about Queen Sofia or, another possiblity, Queen Paola. Everyone knows that her marriage to Albert was in trouble many years ago, and she was kind of a crownprincess, too.

IMO, the whole book is rubbish, BILD is the kind of rag which won't publish something from a respectable book

I think at last this is true. There where a few descendants of Prince Philip's sisters present at the Wedding. His wife is Princess Irina of Hesse a granddaughter of Philip's youngest sister Sophie and her first husband Prince Christoph of Hesse. Alexander and irina married in may 1999 a few weeks before Edward and Sophie.

Count Alexander and Princess Irina were most certainly at the Wessex wedding. They are in the official wedding photograph standing in the back row next to Lady Sarah Chatto. There were also three Hohenlohe-Langenburg cousins and the late Prince Georg of Hanover. Curiously, there were no Badens present.

Maria Teresa would be my first idea. At least I remember such a story. The reason was her horrible relationship to her mother-in-law. Unfortunatly I cannot find a link as proof. Any ideas?

Rubbish? Oh no, it is a brilliant parody, a very funny read. Had to laugh so and so often. This guy certainly knows how to wrap and sell his information. View it as good comedy and you'll have plenty of fun

For those who understand German, BILD/ Alexander Schönburg made a small quiz, look here. In the picture he looks a lot like his nephew Albrecht TuT btw.

RUDOLF - Affaire Mayerling

I don't know if it is the right place here.

During my vacation in Vienna I have seen that there is a new musical about the life of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria.

Here is the link with further information.

Perhaps this topic, Royal Standards and Coats of Arms, could aid you in your research.

Good luck

Sorry, but I find this story simply stupid.

When Felipe was 4 or 5 years old (1972/1973) the Greek Royal Family was in the exile.

Regards!

In the bavarian town Vohburg an der Donau has its "Agnes-Bernauer-Festspiele" again. It is a play about the life of Agnes Bernauer, the wife of Duke Albrecht III of Bavaria.
