A video from tvaktuell: Thurn&Taxis-Schlossfestspiele 2010: Ein Auftakt nach Maß - Nachrichten & News aus Regensburg und der Oberpfalz > Region > Regensburg

You can see a bit of the preparations, as well as parts of Gloria's opening speech and Nabucco and at last an interview with Gloria and later Maria Theresia & Elisabeth.

Prinncess Gloria of Thurn und Taxis attended the opening performance of
'Lohengrin' at the Richard Wagner opera festival in the southern German
city of Bayreuth on July 25, 2010. The 99th Bayreuth Festival is taking
place from July 25 to August 28 and is the first to be held after the death
of former festival director Wolfgang Wagner.

Thanks for the video!
The castle is magnificent. Furstin Gloria appears to be genuinely interested in promoting her annual festival, which draws a lot of people and artists as well as contributes to the local economy.
I am surprised to see Mr. Tally accompanying Furtsin Gloria, who looked quite nice in a shiny coat and the Flintstones-themed necklace.

Gloria should add something to that plain green coat in order to make her look eccentric once again. And she found it! You named it well, Al_Bina!

Cool

Thank you all for the pictures and the videos. I think Princess Gloria is so cool and I admire her for the way she handled the financial circumstances after her husband's death. A very shrewd and smart woman.

It's very interesting to read that Gloria has at least one admirer. Don't get me wrong, the reality is less flattering. Definitely makes one refrain from any kind of admiration.

The idea of comparing Gloria's necklace to Wilma Flinstone's with stoned necklace already was used by a german TV magazine the day before Al bina mentioned it here.

^ No surprise. This is how they call them, since no matter how trendy they are this season, many people simply don't like them.

I'm sorry if I've offended you Noor. I just happen to like Gloria. We all have people we like and don't care for.

It is nice to see Furtsin Gloria attending the theater festival. She seems to favour the Flintstone necklaces over her usual pearls.

The man with her, I recognise him from somewhere.
Interesting clothing, and the necklace is very cute.

The man's name is Andre Leon Talley. He was Vogue's editor-at-large in the USA.
Furtsin Gloria wears one of her dirndls http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirndl

Hello:

I have viewed this Thread many times. May I ask, why aren't the Thurn und Taxis liked by many?

Because they are so rich and very catholic, I think.
I don't understand that, because they have worked for it very hard and being a religious person is not a problem to me.

I wouldn't say that it's because they are rich.

Princess Gloria has given a few rather controversial interviews during the last years. For example she thinks there is no homosexuality - in her opinion it's just temporary fashion, gay men should marry and have children and apparently she prays for her gay friends each day to "heal" them. She also said that condoms aren't a solution when it comes to the problems with HIV in Africa - according to Gloria the Africans just have more sex because it's warmer there.

More can be found here (and I apologize - I know that Google isn't a good translator, but I couldn't manage it to find something in English):

I personally find most of her statements irresponsibly.
