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." http://sites.starnetone.de/s.gif
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.

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 - Bild.de

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.

Cancellation by SMS, that's really rude!

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.

He is Count Alexander...other lines have Princely title...

Duc_et_Pair 11-28-2015 04:16 AM

He is a Count indeed. The House of Schönburg has two branches, the eldest one has the Fürstliche rank, the younger one has Reichsgräfliche rank. The Fürstliche branch of the House Schönburg had two lines: Schönburg-Waldenburg (extinct in 1960) and Schönburg-Hartenstein

Schönburg-Hartenstein

Current Chef:
Alexander Fürst von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1930)

Margarethe Prinzessin zu Windisch-Graetz
=
Johannes Karl

Current Heir:
Johannes Karl Erbprinz von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1951)

Alexandra Gräfin von Attems
=
1 - Aglaë Prinzessin von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1977)
2 - Johanna Prinzessin von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1979)
3 - Aloïs Prinz von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1982)
4 - Franziska Prinzessin von Schönburg-Hartenstein (* 1985)

The Gräfliche branch of the House Schönburg has one existing line:

Schönburg-Glauchau


Current Chef:
Alexander Graf von Schönburg-Glauchau (* 1969)

Irina Verena Prinzessin von Hessen
=
1 - Maria-Laetitia Gräfin von Schönburg-Glauchau (* 2001)
2 - Maximus Graf von Schönburg-Glauchau (* 2003)
3 - Valentin Graf von Schönburg-Glauchau (* 2005)

This Alexander is the brother to the famous Gloria von Thurn und Taxis. Alexander and Gloria are children of Joachim Graf von Schönburg-Glauchau and of Beatrix Gräfin Széchenyi von Sárvár und Felsővidék


There's some relation to Princess Michael of Kent too isn't there?

There are actually 2 Princely lines. the line of Schönburg-Waldenburg and Schönburg-Hartenstein.

I think you are right. I thought the House von Schönburg-Waldenburg became extinct in 1983 with the death of the 5th Fürst because I thought the Heir was an adoptive son:

Ulrich Georg Prinz von Schönburg-Waldenburg (1869–1939)

Pauline Prinzessin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg (1881–1945)
=
Wolf


Wolf, 5th Fürst von Schönburg-Waldenburg (1902–1983)

Donna Luciana dei conti Bargagli-Stoffi (1921–1984)
=

no male issue

When the 5th Fürst died in 1983, his younger brother Georg already was dead. He had no male issue. Then there was a cousin alive (Ulrich) but his cousin's father Wilhelm was "ein Adoptivsohn" so I thought the line Schönburg-Waldenburg ended here. Now I learned that this adoption was done inside the family:

Ulrich Georg Prinz von Schönburg-Waldenburg (1869–1939)

Pauline Prinzessin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg (1881–1945)
=

Wilhelm (became adopted by his aunt Anna Luise Fürstin von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt born Prinzessin von Schönburg-Waldenburg)

The current -6th- Fürst is his son:

Wilhelm Prinz von Schönburg-Waldenburg (1913–1944)

Marie Elisabeth Prinzessin zu Stolberg-Roßla (1921–1975)
=

1 - Ulrich
2 - Wolf Christoph

1 - Ulrich, 6th Fürst von Schönburg-Waldenburg (* 1940)

Brigitte Hirschle (* 1943)

= no male issue

2 - Wolf Christoph Prinz von Schönburg-Waldenburg (* 1943)

Eveline Mente (* 1944)

= Kai-Philipp Wolf (* 1969) - no furtherer male issue yet
