Dont forget she was married to the openly bisexual Prince. Remember at his las big birthday party (I want to say 60th) The candles on the cake were miniature P*nis*s.

Which make r current comments even more hypocritical. Peoples views do change as they progress through life though. I'd be very interested to see how she would handle one of her children coming out as gay.

As a matter of fact, being asked by none other than The New York Times Magazine to comment on her friendship with Alessandra Borghese is as brilliant an opportunity to end rumors about the issue as Princess Gloria can hope to get.
And as a matter of fact, she chose not to dispel the rumor but instead gave a reply sounding as close to a coming out as she is likely to get.
If she only would stop voicing her opinions about what's going on in other people's bedrooms, statements which have been silly at best and irresponsible at worst, it would be a lot easier to just accept the rule she applies to goings-on in her own bedroom by telling people it's none of their business.

AMEN AND THANK YOU!! My problem with the dear little Princess is that she does not practice what she preaches. That's where I personally find the hypocrisy...not in these Forums but from the Princess herself.

Gloria von Thurn und Taxis nicht in Bundesversammlung - Yahoo! Nachrichten Deutschland

Fürstin Gloria won't take part in the next Federal Convention. The Federal Convention elects the President. Usually the parties designate not only party officials, but also celebreties to take part. 2004, when Fürstin Gloria was chosen by the Bavarian prime minister Stoiber she opted for the social democratic candidate Gesine Schwan instead of the christian democratic one Horst Köhler. Obviously her christian socialist friends did not appreciate this move.

I find it so annoying when royals preach to others on how to conduct themselves and then go off and do the direct opposite themseves. Do as I say, not as I do.

However, unfortunatly there is still no proof that she is behaving like this, which makes your comment assumptive IMHO.

So, Albert has a crush on Liza. Maybe he thinks whe is his Boadicea. Seems an unlikely pairing, but who knows. Could work for both of them, if Gloria approves.

6' 4', Broad, looks strong. Gloria must sometimes wonder if it is her late husband standing by her, rather than her son. BTW I have seen a picture of Johannes, showing sinmilar sideburns. So maybe Albert is mimicking his father, or just thinks if it looked good on Johannes, it will look good on him. Question -- Did Albert have his front teeth knocked out in a race car accident? There is one pic of him looking in pain, and his mouth looking hurt.

Was the late Prince tall? He always seemed of a height with Princess Gloria?

Gloria is no Royal and the Thurn & Taxis never were. Though they were considered equal to Royality by the emperors and German rulers and could marry Royal princesses, they never ruled their own country but were serving aristocracy at top-level.

Jo, maybe I'm missing something....how is one a Prince(ess) and not Royal? I understand the Germany does not recognize 'Royal' titles, but would he not be His Highness out in the rest of the world?

I could be wrong (I don't know very much about German monarchy), but I believe that the Thurn und Taxis family were granted their titles due to their service to the Holy Roman Emperor. They established (or played a large role) in the postal service of the Holy Roman Empire.

Perhaps someone more familiar with this family's history knows more?

Strictly speaking 'Royal' refers to Kingdoms, thus the Monaco and Liechtenstein (and Thurn und Taxis) families are 'Princely' and Serene Highness, not 'Royal' and Royal Highness.
Members of the Thurn und Taxis family became Princes of the [Holy Roman] Empire in 1695.

iceflower,
Thanks for keeping us update in regard to Furtsin Gloria's activities! I find her outfit odd, to say the least. A checked red
jacket, orange pants, and green hi-neck looked mismatched. The whole look was aggravated by a strand of mangificent pearls that were alien to the outfit. I think it is better to be classically dressed when promoting a new product. She is a noble lady after all...
