Two new videos of Albert:

1) Albert shots a new video for his sponsor:Fürst Albert dreht Spot in Regensburg :: Homepage - Nachrichten - Oberpfalz & Bayern :: Mittelbayerische Zeitung :: www.mittelbayerische.de

On the right side is a video link: For all non german speakers:
He said that he's not so successful this racing season due to new power balance performance ( whatever that is supposed to be ????).
He'll keep racing as a hobby and said, he can't do ralley's, because it's to dangerous for him as a head of the family ( with no brothers).
He won't race forever because in the closer future he has to lead the family business. They don't say when, but I guess, that next year, when he turns 30 he'll drive his last professional season.

2)Slowakian Journalist flirts heavy with our Albert ( Hello Adelheid ) Push video link under title photo.

Journalistin schmeißt sich an den Fürsten ran

No, nothing serious happened. She said: MY HERO !!!!! Flirty flirty.

Albert has such a bad german accent :) :) :)

He studied in Scotland. I wonder what and how long. Couldn't have been english language. His englisch is not so worse but mine is better and I never was longer than two weeks abroad. I just work with foreign students.

Thank you for the links.
Yes, the journalist definitely looked like she was ready to "eat" him.

I'm afraid that all those pics, corrected to 'high contrast' as they are, do miss the point (or rather, the two points) made by Princess Elisabeth on that occasion...
...which are now making international headlines like 'The breast shock'.

MissJanet, it's not her sister, but Lauren Santo Domingo who - like Elisabeth - works for Vogue

Ah, thank you, iceflower, I'm not overly familiar with the Thurn and Taxis', so this was bound to happen.

"Fancy" again, well... I better keep my opinion to myself. :)

Gloria of Thurn and Taxis has attended the opening of the Thurn-und Taxis-Castle Festival in the inner courtyard of Castle St.
Emmeram in Regensburg, Germany on July 13, 2012. She had invited Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to be her guest and
has caused indignation with that.

Certainly a rather ill-advised choice on Princess Gloria's part (not her first one...) to make one of the most un-democratic European Prime Ministers who represents a constant headache to the EU a guest of honor on this occasion. Why him?

According to a report I've seen the invitation was explained with the close link Gloria had with Hungary as to her mother's family background.

She's a Countess Széchényi of Sárvár and Felsővidék, a great-great-granddaughter of Hungarian social reformer and national hero,
Count István Széchenyi. But nevertheless not a good choice Gloria has made here.

Water off a duck's back.
Gloria has never appeared to be in the least concerned if her actions (and words) cause a fuss or are disapprovingly labelled as "controversial".
She is what she is, and that's what makes her different and interesting, although at times maddening.

It is nice to see Princess Gloria attending the event. She appears to wear warm clothes. Pearls are very nice. Is it cold in Germany?

Yes it is. We haven't had much summer yet. Mostly around 18-22 °C and a lot of rain in many parts of Germany during the last weeks. At least it wasn't raining during the festival's opening..

Thanks for information!
It might seem strange to you, but I envy those countries that have cool/cold summers. Less sun means no tan.
