Thanks for the information! Despite eccentricity, Princess Gloria has proved herself to be a shrewd businesswoman. She preserved the family's coffer. I am sure Furst Albert is happy to life his life doing things he wants.

In other news ...

Princess Gloria was among the attendees of the "CULTIVATING RUSSIA'S IMPACT ON GLOBAL FASHION DESIGN" discussion as a part of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2014.

The 'Cultivating Russia's Impact on Global Fashion Design' link in Al_bina's post above describes Princess Gloria as "Chief Executive Officer of an Internationally Operating Private Historical Fortune".
To provide further context for her attendance it adds "Fashion Icon of the 80ies".

Go Gloria - I guess there's not too many people with a substantive "CEO" alongside "fashion icon" appearing in their CV.

The wedding of Maria Theresia von Thurn und Taxis & Hugo Wilson will take place in September. It's not yet known where. They speculate whether it will be in St. Emmeran or London.

Hopefully the upcoming wedding will be at St Emmeram. It would be nice, if Princess Gloria and her daughters wear the Thurn und Taxis jewels.

Princess Gloria mainly kept the parures in coloured stones: the emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Also the large empire tiara in diamonds should still be in their vaults, since it did not reach the minimum price at the auction.

Actually it is beyond me why she kept that sapphire monster (sorry, but it IS out of proportion and dead ugly, imho). But instead she sold, or tried to sell, all the white tiaras. The pearl tiara of Empress Eugenie probably went to auction because it could be expected to fetch a very good price, due to its provenance. But why this lovely fuchsia tiara had to go puzzles me, it would have made a lovely wedding tiara, imo. http://www.royal-magazin.de/german/thurn-taxis/taxis-fuchsia-tiara.htm

Luckily both her daughters are fond of colourful and extroverted clothing. So Maria Theresia might even choose one of the coloured tiaras. I can even picture her in a multicolour wedding dress !

I 100% agree with you Tilla C. The Fuchsia tiara was utterly beautiful and IMO Furstin Gloria was insane to sell it. I think Albert still owns the Hancock Emerald Tiara which is very beautiful too. I hope MT will have dark hair if she wears a tiara and not continue to dye it very blonde (which wouldnt be as striking).

I havent seen her engagement ring but I think she wears a lot of chunky jewelry so I expect a non-traditional headpiece and a Vivienne Westwood gown

Yes, Vivienne Westwood seems a perfect choice for her! And I'll be happy if she wears any tiara at all! She might well choose something else as a hair ornament. But I won't give up hope till I see the first wedding pic.

Hopefully they will get married at St. Emmeran.

The fuchsia tiara is not only lovely but also elegant and beautiful. The sparkling flowers have a delicate appearance.
