On Tuesdays at almost twelve o'clock, the civil ceremony of the Privy Councilor Ritter von Sobäus took place in the red drawing room.
After this the wedding procession went over the tapestry stairs and the castle courtyard to the St. Emmeram's Church, the Hhor of which was transformed into a palm grove and covered with splendid carpets.
The ordinance took Se. Grace, Bishop Jgnalius von S ene st rey.
The beautiful high bride, who wore a costly robe of silver-interwoven silk with lace and orange flowers, was given to which regiment by her highest father and the Prince of Thurn und Taxis, the bridegroom, who had put on the uniform of the Taxis-Cheveauxlegers a la suite, from your k.

The little Hereditary Prince Franz Joseph von Thurn und Taxis, who lived in the oratory of the holy act, followed the ceremony with great interest.
At 3 o'clock a gala table with 58 covers took place, which, in addition to the princely guests, was attended by outstanding personalities from the local area and the nobility of the area. After 6 o'clock in the evening the newly wed couple went to Thiergarten Castle in elegant four-team, which was adorned in the most delicate manner with garlands of lilacs, lilacs, and azaleas, where they will spend their honeymoon .
The other wedding guests were served a supper in the domed hall of the little pleasure palace "Theresienruh", which, like the princely park, shone in white and colorful electric light, which contrasted sharply with the steel-blue May sky that arched above this fairy-like image.
In the theater of the princely palace, the trousseau of the princess-bride was exhibited for a few days for an audience provided with tickets.
Above all, the precious Parisian bridal gown, made of heavy silk fabric interwoven with large silver flowers, drew the eye.
The linen is richly decorated with artistic embroidery, lace entredeux and hems. The whole thing was a splendid sight, which in its splendor of colors stood out effectively against the dark red silk wallpaper of the hall and, of course, primarily delighted the female part of the audience.
In the picture above the Princess von Thurn und Taxis and on the right, the Infanta Maria Teresa von Braganza with a palmette diadem . The diadem at the top of the picture was auctioned by Sotheby's in St Moritz in 1994 and is owned by the Thurn und Taxis family. You can see the missing two diamonds in the arches of the tiara base, which has now been supplemented with larger, non-identical stones in the picture below. It is the same diadem. At that time it was declared in the auction catalog as a present for Princess Margarethe. The palmettes are removable and can therefore be worn with three or five ornaments, all of them as brooches or the middle lilies can be removed and tapered backwards.
In the Regensburg Princely House, the Spanish court ceremony was observed until the 1980s, that is, at every evening invitation and celebration, tailcoats and medals for the gentlemen, as well as evening wear with diadem, were worn for all ladies and princesses of the court. Accordingly, enough tiaras must have been available in the family. At all weddings you can see this in the afternoon in the pictures of the wedding parties.
The tiara will now be offered on November 11, 2021, in Geneva by Sotheby's. It was made by Robert Koch, Frankfurt around 1890.
