Minnie de Beauvau-Craon, known in her tiny French village as “Princess Minnie,” has ruled over the Château de Haroué in the Lorraine region of northeast France since her father died in 1982.

In order to keep the 82-room chateau going, the 59-year-old princess hosts open-air operas attended by thousands on the grounds as well as fashion shows featuring works by Givenchy, Venet and Balenciaga, among others. Next year she plans to hold art exhibitions, and maybe, one day, an informal pub.
