These are tough days for Gloria von Thurn und Taxis. Her mother and noble family died in deep mourning. Despite her suffering, there is one circumstance that also gives Gloria solace.
Gloria: Most family members can say goodbye
Princess von Thurn and Taxi (61) mourns her mother. Countess Beatrix von Schöneburg-Glauchau died Thursday at the age of 91 in a clinic in Regensburg, the family announced in the evening. “God has given us the most wonderful days, when most of her family and friends could say goodbye,” said Thorne and Taxi, on behalf of their brothers Alexander and Karl Alban.
Burial in the nearest family circle
On November 6, a Mass will be held at the Kreuzkirch church in Munich. Then the funeral is planned in the circle of the nearest family.
Beatrix von Schöneburg-Glauchau was born in Hungary in 1930 and was the granddaughter of statesman and social reformer Count Stefan von Szechenyi. In 1956 she fled the Communists to Germany and a year later married journalist Joachim Graf Schönburg-Glauchau.
“The mother was the head and center of the family.”
Gloria von Thurn und Taxis found touching words: “My mother was the head and center of the family. Her loss is shocking to all of us.” The 91-year-old fell at home and then underwent surgery at a clinic in Munich. But because she remained weak, she was then transferred to the Regensburg clinic. The 61-year-old praised her, “She was looked after by the doctors and especially the merciful brothers’ nursing staff in an exemplary and loving way.”
The mother and daughter shared their enthusiasm for the stage
Gloria and her mother were in close contact, sharing, among other things, their enthusiasm on stage. For example, in the summer of 2007 together they appeared in guest roles at the opening of the Regensburg Castle Festival.
Gloria von Thurn und Taxis lost her father, Joachim Graf von Schönburg-Glauchau in 1998, after her husband Johannes von Thurn und Taxis in 1990. Her older sister, Maya, passed away in 2019 at the age of 60.
