In case he had married we would have heard about it for sure as he's the head of the Princely House of Thurn und Taxis.


By now Elisabeth is back in the USA and attended the sneak preview and U.S. premiere of "A Portrait of Louise Bourgeois Grabigouji: Life of Disappearance" at FIAF Gallery at Florence Gould Hall in New York City on March 8, 2013.

I only ask about Albert because the prince seems to be low key? Fly under the radar of sorts! Not to me toon it's been awhile since I have heard anything about them other than Princess Elizabeth.

I think Maria Theresia is in more low key life and profession .that's why you don't see much of her.while Elizabeth has taken a more high profile job in the fashion industry

Some other recent TnT news...

7 March 2013 - Prince Albert named #974 on Forbes Rich List
Prince of Thurn and Taxis is on Forbes list at No. 974
"Albert's fortune is estimated at 1.5 billion euros [US$2b, £1.3b, AUS$1.9b] and is thus 100 million euros higher than the previous estimate."

24 March 2013 - Princess Gloria Holding Etiquette Seminars
Princess Gloria in World on Sunday: "The Russians do'm sorry!"
@ €1 800 per head [US$2350, £1520, AUS$2275].
"The idea for the etiquette seminar, however, was because I was always reached in my circle of friends and business district questions about etiquette: What should I wear during a state reception at? Whom I greet in a big first round? How do I get the business dinner from small talk to business? You have to know the rules to break them can. And that I used a bit of provocation, which is a privilege of youth!"

The princess just certifies young people a major backlog in manners: "We live in a highly globalized world. And many young people are catching up on all the basic things that were not taught them at home and at school. But the etiquette is important for young people who are traveling on the international stage. This is a business card for Germany itself."

"...In the business context, I often observe that businessmen do not look into the eyes of her interlocutor, but on her cell phone. This is a further affront."

According to Gloria nobles have a big commitment to good behavior: "And we should all strive. But this one is the theory and the practical implementation of the other...The nobility - those are only human.. Ernst August of Hanover-Brunswick, for example, is one of the most polite people in the world. Royal polite! But if it bothers you, then it's out with the courtesy."

Their own manners, incidentally learned not only from their parents but also by a representative of the British Royal Family Gloria: "From Prince Charles, for example. What fascinated me about him enormously, his behavior in a crowded room. Although there are thousands of people there, and he speaks to each person half a minute - half this minute he is yours alone, and it gives you the feeling that there is nothing more important in the world than you. This has inspired me tremendously. And then there are also people of high rank that while they talk to you, even appraise the room if there is not someone, somewhere, who is much more important. This is of course incredibly insulting. So I would rather be like Prince Charles."

1 April 2013 - Sensation: Regensburg buys Gloria's portrait of the Lord Mayor!
Sensation: Regensburg buys Gloria's portrait of the Lord Mayor!
Princess Gloria is being paid €2 000 to paint a portrait of Regensburg's Mayor. Provision for the amount has been made in the Municipal budget.

Princess Elisabeth's ensemble appears to fit the theme "Punk: Chaos to Couture".
The punk theme and Vogue-sponsored event did not match well. NY socialites wore usual couture dresses. Hollywood lot opted for ugly make-up. Ms. Wintour thought that the ugly flowery piece by Chanel was punk.

Well she does have the best resource in "punk" couture in her mother. She was the original punk princess. All kidding aside the dress actually looks well made and the color is very nice on her. And the shoes are awesome!

Ah yes, Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymore the Victoria's Secret model formerly with Axel Rose have put aside their differences and reconciled after the VERY ugly divorce and are once again fixtures on the Greenwich circuit ...

Gloria of Thurn und Taxis attended the presentation of the book "Sei kein Spießer, sei katholisch!" von Wilhelm Imkamp in Berlin today, June 27. The title says "Don't be a square, be catholic", so she could nearly have written it herself

Picture three is a cute one of the two sisters! Gloria looks happy in them all, but this is a sweet one of the two.
