The new engaged couple share a passion for art. Hugo Wilson, who was born in 1982, is a noted artist.

When a reporter from Bunte, the German magazine, called Princess Maria Theresia's mother, Princess Gloria, she refused to comment on the engagement announcement. d

In 2010, Maria Theresia  received a MA in Fine Art from the City and Guilds of London Art School.

Gloria did not confirm the engagement. She did not give any comment at all.

Don't think Gloria is happy about this engagement. Could be wrong.

Svenja said...

She has publicly stated many times that she wants her children to marry Catholic nobles so I guess that he might not fit the bill...

I know. I thought of that last night when I saw the announcement. Strange it did not say Princess Gloria of TnT and the late Prince Johannes of Tnt (or rather the other way around.)

Did you see the German story with a link to RM describing it as a adelsblog aus Grossbritannien!
