The heirs are also a lot older than Albert. The next one would be Max, 79. His sons can´t inherit afaik. Prince Albrecht is 84, Prince Friedrich is 64, Prince Karl is 62 (his sons also can´t inherit) and Prince Maximilian is 49. I hope he has kids in the next years, his father was old when Albert was born.

Btw MTs fiancee is hot

Today there is a little more information about MT and Hugo's engagement in Gala.

German
Erlebe die Welt der Stars | GALA.DE

Most of the information in the article seems to be coming from "a source close to the couple". In IMO the issue of his religion will be a deal breaker when it comes to having a TNT wedding in Regensburg. I think they have been a couple for 2 years not the 5 years it says in the article. I think that Hugo will not convert but agree to raise the children Catholic (I myself am the child of a happy marriage with my father CoE and mother Catholic) - however "mixed" marriages are usually small affairs. If the ceremony is blessed by the Catholic church there will have to be preperation classes for 2 months previous-on this assumption the wedding is likely to be at the Brompton Oratory in London.

The hat is very much her style but the top and furry cape are awful. Her bout of flu must be very bad to have mixed all those pieces into an outfit! Perhaps as a result of working for vogue she is given things by designers that she then feels obliged to wear? Have to say I like the handbag.

I rather think it's her own taste that guides her. She doesn't seem like a person who wears certain things to please someone else and as different as they may be there's a kind of common thread that runs through her outfits

Elisabeth attended the Ostwald Helgason fashion show during MADE Fashion Week Fall 2014 in New York City on February 8, 2014:

Here's a lovely pic of Elisabeth at the Paul Andrew Dinner held at the Musket Room in NYC on February 11 and one of her attending the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 show in NYC on February 13:

Maximilian Karl, The Prince of Thurn and Taxis (1827-1871)
In 1827, Maximilian Karl was his father's (Karl Alexander's) successor as head of the private Thurn-und-Taxis Post.
With the annexation of the Free City of Frankfurt by the Kingdom of Prussia in 1866 and the sale of Thurn-und-Taxis Post, the era of the Thurn and Taxis family's postal monopoly ended.
Maximilian Maria (1862-1885) was the seventh Prince of Thurn and Taxis (1870-1885).
To celebrate the official takeover of the government business of the House of Thurn and Taxis, Maximilian Maria created generous foundations for the poor of the city of Regensburg and the surrounding countryside, and also for the restoration of the Saint Emmeram's Abbey.
He urged his archivist to establish and write a scientifically based history of the House of Thurn and Taxis.

Princess Gloria is in her element, attending Vatican events. Furst Albert's photo is not flattering.

Trouble is a lot of photographs of him seem quite candid quick photos.

He doesn't really have a "pose" like Gloria, Elisabeth and other royals do.

There is nothing fake or studied about Albert and Maria- good for them

I think he is pure of heart and its unfortunate that his natural smile ends up looking like a grimace.

pics 1 and 2: such a pretty face, such a shapeless dress (or mess of a dress).

The ensemble screams "a fashion victim". Running in the high fashion circles, Princess Elisabeth tries to be edgy fashionable, but fails.

I like the print but not the shape of the dress.

Elisabeth's choices in my opinion are very hit and miss. Like many Germans she likes very odd colour combinations which others find strange.

I always thought that young Gloria (although famous for crazy clothing) always had the 'look' down from top to toe- and it worked for her because she didnt mix her fabrics, colours and styles too much.

Elisabeth is 32 this month and it would be nice to see her move to more elegant outfits. IMO she is should have worn the necklace with a LBD or worn the dress with her hair down and no necklace
