Thank you Adelheid

To Fürstin Taxis:
Gloria and the editor-in-chief of the Bunte Particia Riekel are close friends.
By the way: Gloria's brother is editor-in-chief for the society pages in BILD newspaper.
So two of the most important society news sources are somehow "under control" of the Thurn und Taxis family. There will be hardly never posted any article ABOUT THE T'nT family, which they don't like - or it will be deleted soon after a phone call.

Like this time....

That was indeed the case. There were many negative comments about Xenia and her father's former speculations with the money of his investors. As I posted above it was huge scandal in Austria ......

That will be interesting the next months
If Gloria and Patricia are so close, and Gloria gave her bless to the article, then an engagement is coming soon.
But they can´t delete every comment section about Xenia and her father.

They can't delete us

And obviously Gloria didn't give her bless to that specific article. Otherwise it wouldn't have been deleted. So no engagement in Glorias will .....?! We will see what future brings....

Thanks
Here is my translation (into bad english)
Bunte deletes this article: Albert of T&T is said to be in love with austrian Xenia; but the article is suddenly gone.

It seemed that the affair between A.T&T and X.M. was firm underway for a while and know official: Friday Munichs Eveningpaper what the Weekly Aristocratic News wrote allready one year ago. Back then we reported on these rumors. Also on friday there reported speculations but no official confirmation of the princely house of T&T is forthcoming.

The picture shown was taken at an event of the Clockmaker Blanchpain in Munich. It was taken out of context - as it seems - the original foto shows two more people and not just X.M ans A. T&T. So this is given as the reason why the house of T&T required that the foto was taken off.

Bunte keeps on telling, that the story in itself is true - ... .. The two meet while studiing in Edinburg some years ago"

then there are speculations in the article why it was taken off the website (same as here in the forum.. and some more blabla - about diffrent Royal-Forum, where this is heavily discussed etc.)

I got it now, the one and only real, correct and authentic translation of the German article on this link:
Imageshack - wochenblattregensburg.jpg


Speculations About Prince Albert's love life: BUNTE retreat!

Albert von Thurn und Taxis is supposed to be in love with an Austrian girl - but the BUNTE.de report has suddenly disappeared.

It seemed as if the relationship between Albert von Thurn und Taxis and Xenia Maculan, daughter of an Austrian contractor, now is official. On Friday the Munich newspaper ABENDZEITUNG published what had been circulated by the weekly paper WOCHENBLATT from aristocratic circles a year ago. We reported then that there is speculation about a fixed relationship between Xenia Maculan and Albert.
The report on Friday also speculated - without confirmation by the Princely house. The report showed a picture that was taken at a meeting of the watch maker Blancpain in Munich.
Thereupon BUNTE picked up the speculation in its online edition, writing about Albert's “lady of the heart” and how truly in love Albert is suggested to be. BUNTE.de even showed the image of Xenia and Albert, apparently brought nestled closely together.

But the next day the report was gone - and the photo of the two so declared lovers, too.
Reason enough for the weekly paper WOCHENBLATT to ask about at BUNTE. "The picture was taken as a group picture and the two did not expect that only they both would be reflected," is what the Bunte editors replied. Yes, but is it even true at all that the house of Thurn und Taxis can look forward to the fact that Albert is in a relationship? "We believe in the authenticy of this story" the editors told us. It is known that Gloria von Thurn und Taxis has close contact to Patricia Riekel, the chief editor of BUNTE. This must be one of the reasons why the article disappeared so hastily. Furthermore the picture was taken by the agency BRAUER PHOTOS which also belongs to the closer circle of Gloria's “friends”. BUNTE says that BRAUER PHOTOS allegedly gave them the picture only consisting of the two heads of Albert and Xenia. But in fact the original picture – to be found at the picture database of the agency in Munich, shows two more persons together with the couple.

Lively discussion on Xenia's origin

Meanwhile inside some relevant royal forums at the internet a lively discussion about Xenia Maculan's origin arose. Although her mother's coming from an old Hungarian nobility (as did Gloria), her father – as a builder - turns out to have constant financial difficulties.
Both, Albert and Xenia, have come to know each other in Edinburgh where Albert studied economics and theology and Xenia did studies in agricultural architecture.

Prince Alexander della Torre e Tasso died at Awendaw, South Carolina, on 29 August 2011, aged 71.

He was born on 26 February 1940 at Schloß Mzell, the only child of Prince Ludwig della Torre e Tasso (himself son of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis, naturalized in Italy as Principe della Torre e Tasso and Duca di Castel Duino, and of his first wife Princess Marie de Ligne) and his wife, née Frances Goodyear.
He has been married twice and had three children by his first wife Martha.
