Talita von Furstenberg doesn't consider herself a royal

Talita von Furstenberg dislikes using her official title because she doesn't consider herself a royal.

The 20-year-old is the granddaughter of fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and German nobleman Prince Egon von Furstenberg but doesn't want people to call her princess, and she avoids using the moniker entirely.

"I definitely would not consider myself a royal. It's by blood, but it's so far off, I don't like to use my title," she told Vogue.com.

Talita recently launched her debut collection for the Diane von Furstenberg label, TVF for DVF, which was inspired by her childhood holidays in The Bahamas.

"Harbour Island in The Bahamas is like my second home - I've been going since I was a baby, so every time I return it's a big reunion with family and friends. The Dunmore Hotel is the cutest spot for lunch," she shared.

The designer is also juggling her budding fashion career with her studies at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where she is majoring in justice and peace studies. And as production on her second TVF for DVF collection begins in October, Talita is finding it harder to balance her responsibilities as her workload drastically increases.

"But it's worth it," she insisted. "I get to pursue my two main interests: fashion and social justice."

Elsewhere in the interview, Talita shared her must-have beauty essentials, including a $12 (£10) miracle balm.

"Glossier's Balm Dotcom in Coconut is really good. I never leave the house without lip balm," she gushed. "I use Ouai hair products and everyone keeps complimenting me on the scent. Now, the brand has launched perfumes, too."
