Last month, journalist Rachael Sigee wrote a fascinating profile on Princess Elisabeth of Thurn and Taxis. Elisabeth (b.1982) is one of the children of Fürstin Gloria of Thurn and Taxis (née Schönburg-Glauchau) and the late Fürst Johannes. Sigee's piece focuses on the work that Elisabeth is engaged in at Sotheby's, where the princess is currently curating lots for the upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction to be held at Geneva on this Wednesday, 13 November.
This wonderful video, taken by T.J. Wilcox for the Sotheby's article, shows Fürstin Gloria and her daughter guiding the viewer through their home, Schloß St. Emmeram:
The most amusing part of the video (for me) is when Fürstin Gloria, with a grin, quips: "I have my eye on everything. I see everything."
