A few days ago Gloria of Thurn und Taxis has taken part in
a pilgrimage to a famous place of pilgrimage called "Maria
Vesperbild" in the south of Germany, she has taken charge
of the organisation.

Here's a pic and the link to an article about it .

Certainly a lot more colourful than her pilgrimages to Lourdes!

As to her (ever) green jacket? As for me, she can wear as much
green and red as she likes, but I'll always see her with her teddy bear
dress and punk hairstyle in the 1980s

On another topic:

Last week Maria of Thurn und Taxis has presented her documentary film
about a hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal. 150 guests including her mother
Gloria attended the event at the restaurant "Maxim's" in Paris and 70 000
Euro donations have been collected that evening.
Here's a pic of mother and daughter at the event:

Looking at her outfits of the last 2 events, I think I liked her style more in the 80's!

Are those other ladies Gloria's mother and perhaps sister in the picture?

Yet again Furstin Gloria showed a peculiar taste in clothes. I dare to say that harsh candy colours make her look a bit ridiculous. She looked happy with her mother and sister (?) attending the event. What exactly did Furtsin Gloria wear around her neck attending the event at the restaurant "Maxim's"? I wish she wore one of her pearl necklaces. While I laud Princess Maria for participating in a worthy cause and raising funds, I do not think that the hippy look suits her.

So do I. She looked more interesting and well put together. These days I don't even see her wearing makeup anymore. But, she does seem to be a different woman now with different priorities and interests. I think that religion and business are her main interests now. I saw a video of her on YouTube in which she was very critical of the secular world and gave very strong opinions on a variety of social issues. Fashion it would seem is no longer one of her main interests if even a side interest at all.

In fact it's her mother who always accompanies Gloria to all the activities of the "Marianische Frauencongregation". But her sister Maya never went along with her to any of these religious congregation events.
The woman in black at the right bottom of the pic is Ursula Dämmrich von Luttitz, a german TV host for regional Munich events.

Here a link to have a look at the photo galleries of the past (almost) 3 years and the congregation's activities during that time:

Marianische Frauencongregation - Galerie

... and pearls ... Furstin Gloria seems to have a full agenda nowadays. The Thurn and Taxis Castle Festival is an annual event, isn't it?

Yes, it is, since 2003 it always takes place in July in the inner yard and
the park of the Thurn und Taxis castle in Regensburg

Vanity Fair has an article called "Fortune's children", about the next generation from rich and/or noble families like Trump, Kennedy, Spencer-Churchill, Casiraghi and Santo Domingo.
It also features Princess Elisabeth of Thurn & Taxis, picture 31, as well as her cousin Alexander Flick, picture 12. Alex is really cute!

It appears that Furstin Gloria enjoyed staying in Venice. Wearing black stockings in summer..? I am surprised to see her wearing a black-navy ensemble. It is summer ...

I was just looking at this picture from May of this year and I'm shocked at how bald Albert has gotten in the last 2 years!
