Your Excellencies,

I am extremely saddened to announce that our Grand Master’s mother, H.E. Beatrice von Hardenberg, Countess Von Hardenberg and Princess Zu Furstenberg, passed away this morning in Marbella (Spain).

She was born on 28 June 1947 and raised with her two brothers at Donaueschingen Castle in the Black Forest (Germany). The daughter of Count Eberhard Kurt Wilhelm von Hardenberg and Princess Maria Josepha Egona Sofia Wilhelmine Joachima Maximiliane Friederike zu Furstenberg.

In her daughter Olivia’s words:
Dear friends:
With great pain I communicate that this morning at 9:30 am. my mother Beatriz von Hardenberg zu Fürstenberg died at the Quirón Hospital in Marbella due to cardiac arrest caused by the COPD disease that she suffered for years.
Given the serious circumstances throughout the nation, the wake will be considered in the strictest privacy.
In these sad times for our family we want to thank all of you for your kind messages, thoughts and prayers.

Atavis et Armis
Dame Patricia Pedrazas Freeman
