German princess becomes first aristocrat to pose naked for Playboy

Published:

NEW DELHI: Xenia Florence Gabriela Sophie Iris, the Princess of Saxony, has become the first person from an aristocratic lineage to pose naked for the local edition of the US-based Playboy magazine.
According to a German magazine Bild, the princess appeared topless in the local edition of the magazine, hoping that her decision will show “every woman is beautiful the way she is.”
Friedrich August III, who died in 1932, was the last King of Saxony and great-great-great-grandfather of Princess Gabriela. The Princess told the magazine that “he would have approved the photoshoot.”
“He was described to me as very humorous and loving. So he would definitely have approved of it. I feel a special connection with him,” Gabriela told Bild.
The 37-year-old, linked to the 1,000-year-old House of Wettin, is unsure about her royal family’s approval of this.
“I would be surprised if they bought a copy. But of course I hope that they will at least tolerate it,” Princess Xenia said about her relatives from the House of Wettin.
The princess said her royal origin seemed “like a curse” during her childhood. The aristocratic title finally became known to her school friends when she was in Class 7, and the experience was “terrible”.
“Immediately the first girls asked me if I had a maid and the boys asked if I would marry them so they could become a prince,” the Princess added.
The princess further said that now she sees her royal title as a “blessing” to make the most of it. The title has allowed her to take part in numerous reality shows such as ‘Die Burg’, ‘Summer House of the Stars’ and ‘Battle of the Reality Stars’.
“I want to bring the real back to reality TV and at the same time show people who I really am,” the princess told Bild
She revealed her royal ancestry in her biography titled ‘Xenia: The Life of a Princess in the 21st Century’ in 2011. But the House of Wettin, one of the oldest documented families of the German nobility, rejected her claim.
“She is a nothing. She can’t have a biography. This thing is a dreadful faux pas, a misfortune for the 1,000-year-old House of Wettin,” Maria Emanuel, the head of the now-defunct dynasty, had said about Princess Xenia’s biography.
