What was it like growing up as Princess von Thurn Und Taxis? Can you imagine living in a German castle adorned in contemporary art, with guests like Keith Haring and Jeff Koons stopping by as family friends? It was inspiring, to say the least.
Princess Von Thurn Und Taxis said, “My mum was really into fashion as well as art, she had all this really cool couture from the 1980s—Lacroix, Jean Patou—so my sister and I would spend hours trying on the clothes.” Her upbringing led her to the fashion world. As a German author journalist, socialite, art collector, and style editor-at-large for Vogue, the princess known as TNT, says the mix of influence from her mother has guided her style. This thoroughly modern princess currently resides in London.
Princess Sonam Dechen Wangchuck of Bhutan

This princess has what it takes to be a masterful leader.
Sonam married Georgetown graduate Dasho Phubh W. Dorji in 2009. He is the son of a former monk. They have two sons, Dasho Jigje Singye and Dasho Jigme Jigten.
