That's true, I mean isn't Albert like 1,95m? None of them is standing completely straight but still she must at least above 1,80

I hope not...Xenia seems to be a nice girl, beside the fact that I'm not enjoying her at all, but after the affair with the other prince I think she's not the perfect choice for Albert...anyway.. he knows best
Im curious what Furstin Gloria thinks about that realationship

I think we can always count on princess Gloria to tell her mind, so if she doesn't like the girl she will probably not stay quiet about it. I believe she once said in an interview that the only thing you could do about the coice of partners that your children make is: 'pray, pray, pray'.

Don't forget Xenia's father's and mother's business-affairs. I think, Lukas Auersperg-affair + Maculan's business-affairs are too much affairs:

About father Alexander Maculan's bankruptcy March 1996:
Powered by Google Docs
A Case Study on the Fatal Experience of a Western Firm in Eastern Europe
The Austrian construction company Maculan started a large scale expansion strategy into East Germany and related CEE markets immediately once those markets became accessible – a strategy that turned out fatal soon ...
...
July 2008 Alexander Maculan says: “I think it is a right time to invest actively into Ukraine."
DEOL Partners and Maculan Holding at Austrian-Ukrainian Business Forum - PR.com
Now 2 years later, the project is cancel, Ukraine is not able to pay this millions project and Alexander Maculan is still looking for the “Big Deal”...
• FORMAT Online • Ein Jahr nach der Panik: Osteuropas Brsen boomen, doch die Situation ist zerbrechlich • Wirtschaft berblick
...
About mother Marie Maculan's business:
Abendzeitung - Reibach mit der Ösi-Bank: Sie alle sollen verdient haben
...Finally the list of „Upper Class“ is published, who's members seem to be involved all together in the scandalous exploitation of Bavaria by selling the state Austria's ailing Hypo Group Alpe Adria. Also on the list:Marie Maculan ...

You can still find Xenia Maculan on Lukas Auersperg's fb-friends-list, here the link:

You find his wife Alice also on his list, her name is now Alice Auersperg

Thanks Adelheid,
you seem to be right although we should never trust men (kiddin' of course )

Do you know if the Maculan family have any Easteuropean roots?? I'm wondering because Xenia and her siblings have really non austrian names albeit its not needful to have ones

Freiburg:*Der Afghanistan-Rückkehrer - Menschen*●●●*fudder

A soldier from Germany tells about his service in Afghanistan.
In one paragraph he describes a practice, in which the soldiers are prepared in the case of killing people. In his (the soldier) unity was Albert. He must play an injured victim with pig liver and guts, he should looks like a victim. It stanks and it was yukky, but realistic. Albert refused to go with his unity into Afghanistan.


The article is btw very interesting.

Indeed that is an interesting article, I just don't get why Albert should have been to Afghanistan I mean, as far as I know he just did his 'Grundwehrdienst' (military service) as you have to, back when he did it was for about nine month and 'Grundwehrdienstleistende' (people doing the basic military service) do not go to missions abroad.

It appears that the Flintstone period is going on. I had a hope that Princess Gloria would start wearing her magnificent pearls in autumn.

I think he studied there, there is someone on Facebook called Albert Thundertaxi (University of Edinburgh, Graduate 2006) and the picture looks very much like him.

Why ? Did she resigned or is she fed up with that diary or Finch's Quarterly Review...
( I've noticed that the last month articles became shorter and infrequently..)
