Thanks for the information!
It is rather sad that nothing can be done about Prince Mario Max, who was not born in the purple. I am glad to see Marengo moving posts about the aforementioned persona in the "Celebrity Chit Chat" thread.

The beer and amusement festival will see millions of visitors from
all over the world. Munich, Germany, September 19, 2009.

Kind of interesting who they celebrated with: on the second pic
you can see them with Philippe Junot, the first husband of Princess
Caroline of Hanover.

It is always a pleasure to see German Princesses wearing the national costumes. Princess Nadja looked great. However, I have to note that dirndls tend to have an interesting colour combinations.

That's the modern interpretation of the traditional costume, I would say
The ladies always want something new and extraordinary, single copies
are much asked for and can be quite expensive.. But when thinking of
other Dirndls I've seen, the one of Princess Nadja still is very low key
and elegant - even with that colour combination

Thanks for the clarification! It is not surprising that German ladies try to create their own unique dirndl. I like an upper part of a dirndl, which looks delicately feminine.

Dirndl are the tradional costume in Bavaria/Southern Germany and everybody dresses up in them for the Oktoberfest in Munich. The same goes for the leather trousers the prince is wearing. In Northern Germany, where the Schaumburg-Lippe's are from, this kind of regional dress has no tradition. Unfortunately, in large parts of Germany the old regional costumes can only be seen in museums.

It has been kind of you to provide an additional clarification about German national costumes. I have been unaware of the fact that dirndl is not national costume of all the Germany. At the same time, I have to say that German noble ladies such Furstin Gloria von Thurn und Taxis and Princess Najda looked amazing in dirndls.

Al bina, your kind reply has prompted me to do a little research. Since I am from northern Germany I am not that familiar with dirndl, but I found that there is actually an English Wikipedia article on them. Quote: "A dirndl is a type of traditional dress worn in southern Germany, Liechtenstein and Austria, based on the historical costume of Alpine peasants. Dresses that are loosely based on the dirndl are known as Landhausmode.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirndl
On this site http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracht_(Kleidung) you can see several pictures of traditional costumes of the various regions in Germany. There is even a picture women wearing the Bückeburg costume: http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Bundesarchiv_B_145_Bild-F026519-0024,_Bonn,_Diplomatisches_Corps_in_Landesvertretung.jpg&filetimestamp=20090111071024
Seeing this, I am quite glad that Princess Nadja chose a Dirndl. And I agree that the look very feminine!

A bit more art than fashion...

Yesterday Prince Alexander and Princess Nadja Anna officially
opened the annual Christmas market at the family's castle. It
will run till December 6, this year with the theme "English
Christmas". During the opening ceremony it rained, but little
Felipa didn't care much and calmly napped in her baby buggy
(unfortunately there's no pic of that).

One week earlier when Prince Alexander presented this year's
programme, this funny pic was taken:

Oh, I'm sorry, sgl, I haven't seen your question untill now! No,
I wasn't there, but I've been in the region quite often before
and have seen the castle as well. It's worth visiting!

On Christmas German TV station ZDF had a Christmas show
called "Music from the christmasland", making a tour through
the north of Germany, I didn't watch the whole show as there
was too much music not to my taste , but in I've seen a
part in which the moderator (Nina Ruge, the one with the
blonde hair) visited Prince Alexander and asked him about
his Christmas traditions, the impressions of the castle have
been very nice again, here are some pics from ZDF. The lady
with the darker hair is singer Vicky Leandros.

His spokeswoman announced that Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-
Lippe has joined forces with opticians to give used glasses to poor
people in Sri Lanka. During the next days he and members of the
German charity "Interhelp" will travel to the Indian Ocean island
state to launch different humanitarian projects, for example an
orphanage. Last year Interhelp has already brought 3500 glasses
to the village Millagasudumulla.

Here's an article about it, including a pic from the visit last year:
