Guys, we don't need a post with a link every time Prince Albert updates his Facebook page.
The same goes for the Facebook pages of Prince Lukas of Auersperg and his wife.
Such posts will be removed.

thanks,

Warren

It has certainly been a most enjoyable journey.

Some quotes from Princess Elisabeth's final blog for Finch's Quarterly Review, posted 29 October:

Quote:
...there has been devastating news: Finch’s Quarterly Review online as we know it, is bidding farewell. In the next few weeks the website will no longer be, at least not as jam-packed, yummy and full of life as it stands today. Instead you will find a wall on which to read the print version of FQR, great of course but it means adieu to all the rest of us. I of course feel gutted by the news.

...What a journey it has been. Who would have thought such a love affair would emerge out of an idea I downright refused. Initially blogging under that title seemed the last thing on earth I would want to do. I felt ridiculous and embarrassed and thought everyone would hate me for it.

...I am knee-deep amidst compiling the Princess Diaries into a book adding a few more goodies and original pieces here and there. It is scheduled to be released with Ullstein Verlag in Germany next year. Yes, you heard me, my beloved PDs are only temporarily homeless. Soon they will be living it up, cosily wrapped between two hard covers. Great news right?

...I am pleased to announce that somewhere in cyberspace the Princess Diaries will continue. I am not quite sure where, whether within a magazine, a community of creative’s or something all together dashingly new. So please promise to keep your eyes and ears open if like me you always want more. It has been a pleasure serving you. I hope many more shared adventures lie ahead. I am eternally grateful for the love and support and send you all my love. Remember the beat most definitely goes on.

Yours always xx The Princess

ETA.. The Princess Diaries are back, on a new site: viveteria.com.

I found this article (btw nothing new but with really interesting pics over Furstin Gloria's place in NY) Gloria Takes Manhattan: Gloria von Thurn und Taxis: Society: Wmagazine.com where the author said that Albert is currently studying for his Ph.D. in philosophy
Any details?

Together with some other businessmen Albert is filed a lawsuit against the way a new underground shall be build in Munich. He's one of the owners of stores and houses above where it should be constructed and they are claiming that the current plans of how it is going to be build would cause seriously existence-threatening.

Furst Albert's costume does not surprise me because eccentricity runs in the family.

According to this article Gloria plans to convert St Emmeram into a retirement home after the plans of converting it into a luxurious hotel failed. It is not said if she wants to convert the whole castle or just parts of it.

Would it be too expensive for retirees to reside there? The luxurious hotel failed to be a financially viable business. Why is a retirement home expected to make profits?
