"the" Mrs. Astor

Thursday, June 11, 2009

As the official "walkers" of Henrietta, The Queen of South Beach, we are often besieged by questions of her background, her every day comings and goings, and--especially--the secret of that hairdo.

I can now reveal that the secret of Henrietta's hair style was passed down, through secret notes hidden in a jar of pomade, from Crown Prince Otto of Austria and Hungary. Otto is the oldest son of the last emperor and empress of the Austro-Hungarian empire, Karl and the ever-fascinating Zita. In 1940 Zita, her husband long dead, escaped the Nazi invasion of Belgium where they resided and fled to Paris, then to Portugal, and finally to the United States and Canada. Otto was an ardent opponent of Hitler and was sentenced to death by the Nazis. Fortunately, he outlived Hitler. Since 1951 he has been married to Princess Regina of Saxe-Meiningen and Hildburghousen and is very active in European affairs; they have seven children.
