Talking of family does anybody know anything about Maria's wedding? I must admit to being madly curious about it (when, where, the dress).

I think Elisabeth's dress in the pic is Valentino and I know Valentino did Gloria's wedding dress. Perhaps there is a friendship between Gloria and the house which means he might do Maria's wedding dress for her?

Looking for news I went to lurk on the RD forum in hope of finding some information. I am unable to find anything beyond the British newspaper announcement & the Gala article. There is a photograph of Hugo & Maria together on the RD forum but Maria doesnt seem to have an engagement ring on.
With this in mind it is possible that the wedding might be in 2015 rather than 2014.

I'm completely interested in this House. Wiki is giving me not much information on the family '2000'.

What is Albert's title?
What will his wife's title be?
Does the title get passed to the 1st son of the title holder?

What is all this I read about the Mum (Gloria)?

Where do they live?
Do they have a castle?

Any information would be brilliant.

Thank you kindly.

Albert is the Fürst von Thurn and Taxis and his wife will be the Fürstin.

You read must about Gloria because she is in charge of the Family's posession which she took over after the death of her husband and is much in the public, Albert obviously prefers not to do so at the moment.

They have several Castles (At the death of Fürst Johannes it where over 10 but some where sold). They still own St. Emmeram in Regensburg which is their Main residence and Garatshausen Castle at Lake Starnberg and several others

My lurking on Royal Dish has paid off. News is that Hugo is to be recieved in the catholic faith and Gloria will get her Catholic (albeit middle class) son-in-law after all

Some weeks ago I've seen an interview in a German TV programme where she told the interviewer that when her children had left home, she had looked for a new fulfilling task.

Did they all go to boarding school? In that case she must be painting for more than a decade already.

From a US Financial magazaine, March 2014
A listing of the top ten wealthiest people in the world under 40 years old.
At #4 is HSH Albert, 12th Fürst von Thurn und Taxis.

Does Furst Albert manage his family's fortune? I thought Princess Gloria keeps a tight rein on it.

Does anyone know what Albert is up to these days? Is he living in Germany?

Yes, it's Albert's fortune. He 'allows' Gloria to manage it. Gloria once said in an interview that she only may handle the affairs because Albert agrees with what she's doing.

I guess that both sides are quite content with the situation: Gloria as a rather restless person needs something to do, and Albert has more time to spend with his racing cars .
