The German magazine Bunte is reporting that the Prince of Thurn und Taxis may have found his ever after partner.

Prince Albert, 35, is the head of the Princely House of Thurn und Taxis.  He is worth about 1.5 billion euros and owns a number of palaces including the 500 room Schloss Emmeran in Regensburg.   His wealth and title certainly make him one of the most eligible of bachelors.

Albert has been linked to several women in the past decade or so, but no one has truly won his heart, until now.

Pia d'Iribarne is a London-based 32-year-old "intellectual high-flyer, who was introduced to Albert at a society wedding in Rome.

In January she joined Stride VC as a third partner.  Pia was a Vice President at Accel Partners before joining Stride VC.

Pia is a native of Paris.  According to Forbes, she is an "expert in consumer brands, SaaS, and marketplaces."  She is the daughter of  Benoît Marie Bernard d’Iribarne,  Vice-President of Technology and Industrial Performance of Compagnie de Saint-Gobain, and Marie Anne Sybesma

Sorry for being a prune here, but I thought his father had to marriage a lady of rank to inherit and assume same for his son.. Maybe Thurn and Taxis has also relaxed their rules for their male descendants ?

if His serene highness as head of the house can change the rules, why can't Prince Gustav? Or does it have more to do with the money?

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

Albert has not changed the marriage rule ... and Gustav is bound by his grandfather's will
