Prinz Alexander annuliert Hochzeit
Absage per SMS

Prinz Alexander von Schönburg-Hartenstein (26) und seine Verlobte Comtesse Anne-Victoire de Rougé (24) haben ihre Hochzeit sehr kurzfristig abgesagt. Wie die BUNTE berichtet, bekamen die circa 500 Gäste, die aus Europa, Kanada, Dubai und von den Philippinen zur kirchlichen Trauung in Paris angereist waren, eine SMS: "Entschuldigung, die Hochzeit ist abgesagt. Später mehr Details."
Die Nachricht habe aber nicht jeden erreicht. Zahlreiche Gäste hätten um 15.30 Uhr vor der Kirche gestanden.

Prince Alexander canceled wedding - Cancellation by SMS
Prince Alexander von Schönburg-Hartenstein (26) and his fiancée Comtesse Anne-Victoire de Rougé (24) canceled their wedding near-term. As reported by BUNTE, the 500 wedding guests arriving from Europe, Canada, Dubai and the Philippines to attend the wedding in Paris, got an SMS: "Sorry, the wedding is canceled. More details later."

But the message didn't get through to everybody. A crowd of guests was waiting in front of the church at 15:30.

The family genealogy: Schönburg

Information about Schloss Schoenburg: die Burg Schönburg

Some information from the Thurn & Taxis website:

Marengo 01-08-2009 07:20 AM

Countess Maya of Schoenburg, sister of Gloria of Thurn & Taxis, tells 'Welt Am Sontag' that sex is overrated and clarifies that her sister thinks that it should only be used for procreation.

BILD article, in German: Maya Gräfin von Schönburg: Sex wird doch völlig überbewertet - Royals -

She also says that every woman looks for an alpha male to protect her.

It seems Maya's son Alexander Flick listened to his mother, he and his wife got a little baby girl called Mia, just before christmas. Alexander's father (and Maya's ex-husband) is billionaire Michael (Mick) Flick.

Thanks for posting the link :flowers:!
The bride is wearing her family's floral diamond Tiara.
The Tiara was last seen when the bride's mother, Princess Marie Luise von Preussen, wore it at the wedding of Prince Georg Friedrich von Preußen and Princess Sophie von Isenburg.

The wedding took place on 20 September 2013 in Ronda, nr Malaga (although the captions of the photogallery erroneously say 15 September).

Bunte has a short report about the wedding of Prince Ferdinand von Schönburg-Hartenstein and Countess Eleonora zu Brandis. The civil wedding took place at Stein castle which belongs to the groom's family. The church wedding took place at the castle Fahlburg where the bride grew up.

The bride designed the gown herself, the veil is a family heirloom and the tiara belongs to the groom's family. As the bride is a goldsmith she made the wedding rings herself.
