OK,OK, Seraphine, Xenia's fb-profile-picture is not at the Malteser-Event in St. Moritz and the man in the middle is not Bernd von Stumberg. The Austrian-girl and Albert are in Flachau-Austria with Hermann Maier. Thanks Seraphine, you have insider information

It is also interesting that her aunt is Cäcilie,Fürstin zu Waldeck und Pyrmont,born Countess von Goëss-Saurau,her first cousin is Katharina,Princess von Altenburg(F.Joseph and Sissi descendants) while other close cousins include members of Liechtenstein,Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg,Kottulinsky families...


Apart from that she has descended from all those great families such as Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsürst,Hohenlohe-Langenburg,Solms-Baruth,Reuss zu Köstritz,Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort,Fürstenberg,Sayn-Wittgenstein,Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg,Kaunitz-Rietberg,Liechtenstein,Oettingen-Wallerstein,Colloredo,von der Leyen und zu Hohengeroldseck,Schönborn-Buchheim,Stadion-Wartshausen,Stolberg-Gedern,Batthyany and so on...

I haven't seen that on geneall.net ( do you have the link ?) and although this is quite nice for her, it is always the father's family that counts - not my idea but Gotha rule.

Where are her grandparents on geneall ?

By the way: von Altenburg - please give me more information about the von Altenburg family, because the only one, that I know, is the Sachsen - Altenburg family, one of the oldest, finest families of german noble families, but unfortunately extinct.
I have seen her relationship to Sissi on geneall, but I don't see clearly why an Archduke becomes a prince of Altenburg - a minor title. But may be we need to ask that question in the general forum.

FAQ: http://home.foni.net/~adelsforschung/index.htm ( in german, but try online-translation)

Here you can look up EVERY noble/ royal family and their rating: http://home.foni.net/~adelsforschung/index4.htm

The Princes von Altenburg are the male line descendants of the late Archduke Clemens Salvator of Austria-Tuscany, one of the children of Archduke Franz Salvator and Archduchess Marie Valerie (Franz Josef and Elisabeth's daughter).
He in 1930 married morganatically to Countess Elisabeth Rességuier de Miremont, and the following year he took the title of Prince von Altenburg, which later in 1949 was confirmed on him and his descendants by Archduke Otto, the Head of the Imperial Family.
On the same occasion in 1949 he also confirmed the title of Princes von Altenburg to the wife and the children of Archduke Karl Albrecht of Austria-Teschen.

Thank you MAfan, The morganatic marriage explains it all. I haven't seen that on sunday morning.

Thanks for the photos! It is nice to see Furstin Gloria masking a pubic appearance after taking a short break. A fur cape and pearls are better elements of her ensemble.

No, don´t think so. There are just few German nobles like the
Hohenlohe-Langenburgs at the wedding.

The count of Schönburg-Glauchau was not invited. May be because he's a journalist and he wrote a book about monarchs and told some (actually just funny and harmless) secrets about the Queen. But they don't like, if someone tells something at all.

What about Albert and Xenia ? Are they still a couple ? It became quite silent about them.

And has anyone heard about princess Elizabeth ? Her blook on viveteria had no new entries for month.
