Iceflower, thank you very much for the pics

As for Gloria: she is the princess (German: Fuerstin) of Thurn und Taxis, she was born a countess (German: Gräfin) and married up.

When ever I see a recent photo of Princess Gloria, I am struck by how conservative she is now. I remember her youth as Princess TNT! What a difference. Thanks for the photos!

Oh yes, Gloria TNT had a 're-awakening' religion wise (what the evangelicals in the USA call being born again) after the death of her husband. She is a personal friend of long standing of the new Pope, and is quite the dinner guest in demand in Rome. However in addition to Gloria's wild 'extended youth', there have been persistant rumors of a lesbian relationship with equally religious Princess Borghese. An interesting conundrum, dont you think?

Dear iceflower, thanks for your welcome greetings and for the nice new pics from Bonn.

Regarding your Pic 1: were you eventually in Bonn yourself?

HSH Princess Daria von Thurn und Taxis

Her Serene Highness Princess Daria Maria Gabriele von Thurn und Taxis (b. March 6, 1962) is the only daughter of Prince Franz vonThurn und Taxis by his second marriage with his cousin Princess Mafalda von Thurn und Taxis, both deceased, sister of the late Furst Johannes, who married Countess Mariae Gloria von Schonburg-Glauchau. While Princess Gloria and her children are very well-known, I have not seen many references to Princess Daria, or even her photo, either online or in any magazine. Can anyone tell me a little bit about her. What sort of a person is she? What are her interests? Does she associate with other aristocratic families in Germany?

I saw the show from Aachen on TV tonight. I thought it was quite inappropriate for a royal like Gloria to be such a big part of the whole thing.
It somehow seemed to ridicule her position. What do you think about it? If, like, Crownprincess Mary or Queen Elizabeth or Crownprince Felipe did something like that, I'd be quite...shocked or so.

This order is one of the most valued in Germany. She shares it with the most distinguished personalities of Germany. Plus she is just a "Fuerstin", a ancient social position which no longer has any real meaning in Germany of today. So she is honoured by being awarded this price, she really is!

Helen88, Gloria and her family can't really be compared to royal families in
countries with acting monarchy, she not in the spotlight like the royals
you've mentioned, so she can do what she wants and no one really cares
Actually if you look back at the 1980s when she was in the prime of her
punk life, you'll notice the big difference..

Here are some pics from Saturday at the show in Aachen:
Me personally I did not like her appearance either, but she
showed humour and spirit and that's what was wanted.

Fully sharing the opinion of icelower, I would like to noted that Furstin Gloria comes across as a happy energetic lady. She can do whatever her heart desires as von Thurn-und-Taxis is not an acting royal house. I am sure that Furstin Gloria knows her limits very well.
Special thanks to iceflower for pictures !

I'm not fond of her outfit, but she looks like she is having a great time and is very happy.
