Ok, that is their business, anyways I have never heard or read about any Alessandra Borghese's male partner since many years ago.
Maybe she is very good at keeping her private life secret!
Alessandra Borghese tries to live her life according to the catholic rules, she claims. These are: no marriage, no sex. Thus it's quite possible that she simply has no partner.

Yes, she was so shocked after the marriage with Kostantin Niarchos, that she choose this life...

Also the Catholic extremists date men, get married and have sex (after the wedding of course!), unless they have made a vow of chastity.
I do not want to say that I believe they are homosexual, but I have never heard a gossip on any male partner in the last years.

She didn't choose this life after her marriage with Kostantin, but years after. She had other boyfriends after Kostantin, Giovanni Agnelli Jr. included.
She is so proud of her affair with Agnelli that she wrote about it even in the back cover of one of the books she wrote.

I grew up in a very catholic family where much stranger things have happened due to belief: we have to offer nuns, monks, priests, oblates, eternal virgins, even a birth "immaculata" (proven by the doctors). So for whatever reason she chose a chaste life - may she be happy with it.

I also come from a Catholic family and we have our contribution to the Church with bishops, cardinals, etc, but I am always surprised from these changes of mind...

It sounds to me like her intimate life has been filled with nothing but drama and difficulty. I can understand why chastity would appeal to her. I certainly wouldn't want to live life in this fashion, nor would I advocate this, but if it makes her happy, then good luck to her.

Anyone interested in some more older pics of the family?
I've found several ones in old magazines, for example
these from 1983 shortly before the birth of Albert

iceflower,
Thanks for sharing photos!
Well... Furstin Gloria had a frumpy clothes period by wearing totally unflattering, yet comfortable outfits paired with her usual favourite such as pearls. Although unsophisticated, Furstin Gloria seemed sweet.

At the moment, I am reading in German a book from Gloria von Thurn und Taxis with the title "Gloria. Die Fürstin - Im Gespräch mit Peter Seewald".
It is diverting and entertaining, and the frank speaking of the Fürstin is very sympathetic.

According to BILD Fürstin Gloria is now a commander on the papal order of SDt. Gregory. She received the order in the silver room of her St.Emmeram Palace.

Article in German, with picture, here.

Beneath the story in Marengo's link is a 23-picture slide show of Princess Gloria which is well worth a look.
One piece of trivia: she has a definite liking for green and pink colour combinations.

On a much more serious issue, it's reassuring to note that young Albert has finally shaved off those dreadful lambchop sideburns.

It is the House-Order of the Thurn und Taxis: "Orden De Parfaite Amitié"

Thank you Adelheid! Are there other house orders of the Haus Thurn und Taxis?
