The same event covered in Hello!
Liza sings for wealthy aristocrats at their Bavarian castle
The magazine incorrectly identifies Gloria's title as "Countess of Thurn und Taxis" (well, I guess that was her title before her marriage) instead of Princess. I usually expect errors like this from American magazines and not Hello! considering their regular coverage of royals.

Maria Theresa looks a bit weird.
May be she is emulating her mother of the crazy years.
Elizabeth looks more "normal".

M-T is 28 and Elizabeth is 26.
However there was never any rumour of possible romance or dating which is rather odd.
It looks like mummy Gloria is a hen-mother always cautious that her beloved daughters won't fell in any predators hands (as some would say she acted), but nevertheless is strange that in the german aristocratic circles they hang around there was never any hint for the girls.

Does anybody have any info on the 2 previous T&T princesses, the sisters Infantas Isabel and Maria Anna of Bragança ?

Little is known abouth them .

They seem to have kept a low key life.

Are there any photos of them, their weddings, receptions they've attended ?

Thanks in advance

Oh wow the hair line, where did it go? Poor thing, to be losing your hair so early in life.

Veronika Leon 07-25-2008 09:29 AM

Yeah poor Albert..He should really consider a hair transplant for the future and as for Maria and Elisabeth GET A STYLIST!!!These two are dressing like a gypsies.But I'm not worried about them mummie will for sure find a "great match" for them just like she did for herself.

Does anyone know how tall Albert is? in the picture with his mom and liza he seems to tower over the two of them

Veronika Leon 07-26-2008 10:16 AM

he is 1.96 m impressive isn't it..Gloria once mentioned in one interview that he is way to tall to be a car race driver but i guess it's not a problem for him cause he's doing rather well

Dear Veronika Leon, Fürst Albert von Thurn und Taxis is "only" 1.93 m, not 1.96 m like you write.

Here a link to an article from yesterday night:

Milliardär Albert von Thurn und Taxis sucht eine Frau - Bild.de

Veronika Leon 07-27-2008 05:27 AM

well i read in another article that he's 1.96 but who can believe all the tabloid the one that you posted for example says that he's 24 but actually he's already 25..but whatever

Yes Veronika Leon, you're right about the age, the BILD ZEITUNG isn't up to date about Albert and his sister Elisabeth, she's already 26. But concerning to Albert's size - in fact the newspaper comes near to the truth.

Veronika Leon 07-27-2008 07:17 AM

I guess it's not a huge issue anyway..but the article itself I find actually quite funny Albert having a crush on Liza Minelli..no seriously i wish him all my best to find a great partner for life cause that's at least in my opinion the most important thing ever

Who knows, who knows :rolleyes:, perhaps is Albert T&T just like Benjamin Braddock from "The graduate" and he is waiting for his Mrs. Robinson including a pretty daughter for the happy end ;).

Furstin Gloria is being interviewed on the ARD at the moment on the programme 'Marschberger'. She is telling about her relations with a cardinal, about the death of the ormer pope and about the conclave, when cardinal Ratzinger was proclaumed the new pope etc.

She tries to go to mass every day but that is not possible as they don't have masses everywhere anymore. But in biger cities it is still possible.

Marengo, she is simply doing promotion work for her new book together with Joachim Kardinal Meisner, who took part in the Maischberger show as well:

I think that Gloria has become a real kick. She looks like she goes to the corner beauty salon, wears no make-up, has let her figure go to pot and wears frumpy clothes. Yet, she is always wearing a string of priceless pearls around her neck!
She seems to have a real gusto for life and has let all vanity fall by the wayside.
Good for her!

no make-up -> good for your skin :biggrin:
a few more kilos on your hips and elsewhere -> no or less wrinkles :whistling:
frumpy clothes -> I wouldn't call a Dirndl frumpy!!!:bang:

All in all a classy life.

I wonder what special information about the conclave Furstin Gloria is privy to. I mean conclaves happen in private and the public are not allowed in. Could a participant of a conclave share information with his friends?
As for the recent photos of Furstin Gloria, I have to say that she looked happy and relaxed. I like that she opts for national costumes.
