That beard makes Albert look a lot older than he is!

Thanks for the photos!
It is nice to see Princess Gloria attending public events. She appears to be a bundle of energy. Looking at the Thurn und Taxis family photos, I would say that they are very tight-knit. Furst Albert's mustache does not flatter him at all.

Does anyone have any knowledge about the von Thur und Taxis' during WWII or after WWI?
I know the Nazi movement started in southern Germany, and I was just wondering what the families involvment or lack there of was during this time.

Fürst Albert of Thurn und Taxis, the grandfather of the late Fürst Johannes, looked down on Adolf Hitler with disdain. When in 1936 Hitler visited Regensburg and wished to pay a call at St Emmeram's, Fürst Albert declined to receive him. The incident was not forgotten. The family were kept under watch by the Gestapo and during WWII Johannes's father, Prince Karl August, was arrested and imprisoned. Accused of referring to Hitler in derogatory terms and of listening to the BBC, he spent the rest of the war behind bars. As a form of retaliation against the family one of the Thurn und Taxis castles outside of Regensburg was selected as a decoy for RAAF bombing raids and was thus painted and lit to look from the air like the nearby armaments factory.

Gloria has been in Brussels, yesterday, September 29, to visit the Royal Museums of Fine Arts and the church of Notre Dame du Sablon together with Prince Lorenz of Belgium. The Thurn und Taxis family had lived in the Sablon district till 1701, when they were forced to move to Regensburg. They had also built a funeral chapel at the Notre Dame du Sablon.
