Your Royal Highness, You’ve have been known for your environmental activism. Please shed some light on what drew your attention to this.
To produce 1 kg of meat, you need about 20,000 liters of water, 16 kg of grain and you cause as much CO2 emissions as a 250 km trip on the motorway. If you were to give these resources of water and grain directly to people instead of wasting it on mass livestock farming and meat production, you could feed so many people that there would be no more famine in the world. The rearing of animals in animal factories is cruel and an ecological catastrophe. This is what led me to be an environmental activist. I would like to behave responsibly towards animals, people and nature. That’s what our future generations also deserve, that’s why I live vegan.
“I would like to behave responsibly towards

generationsalso deserve, that’s why I live vegan.”
What according to you are some small steps that people could take to improve their relationship with the environment?
There are currently about 7.6 billion people in the world and forecasts predict that there will be about 9.8 billion people in the world by 2050. The world’s natural resources and farmland will fall short at some point of time. We can no longer afford to waste about 67% of the grain harvest as animal food in mass livestock farming for meat production.So everyone can start by not eating meat every day, but by eating a vegan or vegetarian meal. Eat consciously and consider where the food comes from, what you consume. Every small step counts.
“I have saved the lives of many animals myself
and live with over 100 animals, which I have all
adopted, among them also old and blind ones.”
Tell us a little about your recent work. Does it touch on any of the world issues?
I am a small creature in this world, but I try to live within my framework responsibly towards my environment. I have been a committed to animal welfare for many years and I have been particularly committed to the rescue and protection of stray animals. I have travelled to many countries, negotiated with governments on better animal welfare laws. I raise public awareness of animal suffering and advocate animal-related education programs for children in school. In Romania, for example, I was able to introduce animal welfare education as a compulsory subject in schools as part of the “Eduxanima Program”. “As a designer, I take my steps responsibly in the production of my collections.”
Your style has been described as quietly elegant. Tell us more about your collections.
Thank you very much for the compliment! I have various collections in the interior sector, such as carpets, porcelain and bathroom furniture, as well as collections for pet accessories, children’s toys and hats. My collections are represented on the international market in about 80 countries. (www.prinzessinvonHohenzollern.de)
Royal collection is a very tasteful and exquisite bath collection. Please introduce us to the aesthetics of Royal Collection from your perspective.
I just presented my new bathroom furniture “ROYAL BATH” Collection. It consists of the series “Diamond” line and “Urban Loft” line. It is addressed to people who value modern and stylish design furniture, equipped with the most modern comforts.
“Diamond Line” is a truly classy design line!
It combines geometric rhombus patterns
with retro “hairpin feet”. The design is
modern, light and warm.
“Urban-Loft” combines a puristic, royal design reminiscent of the cool lifestyle in lofts found in modern cities. High-quality extracts with soft-close technology as well as surface mirrors with emotion lighting lend luxury to the bathroom series.
The ROYAL BATH Collection by Princess Maja von Hohenzollern is available from specialized retailers under the successful b • collection brand.www.b-collection.de/prinzessinvonhohenzollern
