tao ruspoli olivia wilde gi Olivia Wilde, Prince Tao Ruspoli split after 8 yearsOlivia Wilde‘s life as a princess — literally — may be coming to a close.

Wilde and Italian royal hubby Tao dei Principe Ruspoli have officially separated, a rep for the actress tells Us Magazine. The couple eloped when Wilde was just 18-years-old, interestingly enough, in an abandoned school bus.

“The bus was the only place we could be completely alone,” the “House” star told Playboy. “The wedding was a secret, and we wanted to do it someplace where we could hide with our best friends. It was all about the intimacy of the promise we were making.”

It doesn’t seem as though Wilde will miss her title, though. She also told Playboy, “I never call myself [a princess]. I occasionally get mail that says ‘Principessa.’ It’s all part of being this lucky person who has been welcomed into an interesting family with a long history.”

Ruspoli is a filmmaker and musician, who founded The Los Angeles Filmmakers Cooperative back in 2000. He is the son of Prince Alessandro Ruspoli and Austrian-American actress Debra Berger.
