On TV ( "Arte") they had some biography of Gloria a few days ago and I must say slowly this lady gets on my nerves: They showed her on some stage belting out a carnival song and she trampled around with those stocky legs and plump hips, it was IMO just horrible.
Wouldn´t be surprised if her daughters marry some much older aristocrat (maybe from Italy which seems to be Gloria´s favourite country) as well. Maria Teresia is "already" 28 and will become 29 in December but nothing is known about at least a boyfriend (well with that kind of future mother-in-law....)
Gloria also mentioned that she would like to marry again but obviously has to wait until Albert is married. And she talked quite loveless IMO about her late husband saying that it was a big change for his life as an "old bachelor guy" to get married to her....

Ah Stefanie, as always we can trust you to come up with the jaundiced observation.
I doubt that many people are overly-concerned with Gloria's "stocky legs and plump hips" but if that presses your buttons it reflects on you rather than Gloria.

Lots of men do not like stocky legs and plump hips but I am sure many of them are willing to overlook this due to her other assets

Pic 25.7.2009

Gloria, Princess of Thurn and Taxis arrives for the premiere of
Georg Friedrich Handel's 'Theodora' at the 2009 Salzburg Festival,
Salzburg, Austria, 25 July 2009. The festival runs until 30 August.

At first I wasn't sure about the dress, then I decided it was a
kind of art

I can not help when I think about how Astrid & Lorenz would go together with Gloria if their son married one of the girls.
But perhaps they would get along very well and I do not see the dynamics clearly.

It's not dress but a shirt/pants combo.

I can se why you find it amusing. However as all in laws must learn I don't doubt that they would smile and bite their tongues. It's not as if they have to live with Gloria.
But perhaps, as they are all very devout and conservatice Catholics that might help.

I know that, I've meant "dress" in the meaning of "clothes"

Here are two more pics from yesterday, Gloria with Countess
Anna of Schoenburg-Glauchau and friends:

That was an impressive piece of cross-matching and researching Adelheid!

Brilliant observation, Adelheid! As to Anabel I knew that
she's Gloria's half-sister, I should have added that, so thanks a
lot for mentioning it!

I've found an additional pic from the castle festival. It's from day
3, July 20, and according to the article and picture text the show
"ABBA mania" was shown and they were lucky with the weather
this time

Here's a new pic of Princess Gloria with her friend Princess
Alessandra Borghese at the Salzburg Festival last week.
Another dress than the dirndl would have been a surprise

Is there any specific reason why Gloria has to wait for Albert to get married?

I doubt that Furstin Gloria will re-marry. I dare to assume that the title and her current position in the society are far more important to her than the marriage.
As usually ... Furstin Gloria looked truly happy appearing alongside officials from the Roman Catholic church.

That and her deep, close, personal friendship with Princess Borgese would seem to make Princess Gloria remarrying unlikely!

Well it's been very widely reported for quite some time during Gloria's whole Pope Benedict phase...had you not heard about it? We've discussed it here more than once.
