Thanks for the update on Prince and Princess Michael's activities. It is nice to see the couple attending various events.
Princess Michael's braided hairstyle is all right. However, I am not keen on the fashion choices as the latter is overly fussy.

Though, IMO, she can certainly wear it well!

You are quite right. Princess Michael does pull off awkwardly interesting ensembles with panache.

That's what I wanted to say! "Awkwardly interesting." Love that! Thanks!

The top part of that dress looks so delicate, it is beautiful. I also have to say that, without exageration, the second picture is one of the most lovely pics of the Princess I have ever seen.

I agree with you. Princess Michael looked great. A sleek dress was nicely enhanced by a proper hairstyle and jewellery. I assume that the large pearls are real.

I agree Angela to a certain extent. I would just add that this is the most lovely pic I have seen of MC in her 60's because there are some stunners at various points in her life.

As for the recycling of the hairdo, those of us with naturally curly hair understand the savvy motivation behind "stretching" a good style for several days (i.e. a moisturized, protective style is healthier than the harshness of daily shampooing)

I have just found the magazine article that refers to that pearl and diamond set from a few years ago. Apparently it was identified as having been made by a very upmarket Australian jeweller and was selling for $250,000 Australian dollars. Don't know wht that is in £'s but obviously very expensive.

Thank you for this interesting information, Angela! The pearl and diamond set looks really gorgeous. Btw, I also thought that the second picture is outstanding.

Prince Michael just gets more and more distinguished looking as time passes.

Have they overcome their financial issues? Has anyone heard anything new lately?

A stunning lady in red, I'd say. If only she had another hairstyle...

Oh but I am ENJOYING that hair style! It's a bit Grace Kellyish but Princess Michael can pull it off! Is it all her own hair? I think there is some hair pieces in there as well.

Hi,

Great style and glamour here.... Brava, Princess Michael!!!

I don't mind the hairstyle, but we could soon get bored with it...
If she doesn't change it soon, I propose we send her to yoddle off an Alp - a la Heidi....

Larry

Princess Michael is looking wonderful in the pictures. She is wearing some amazing Indian "kundan" jewellery which is very expensive - wonder where it might have been borrowed from, as it does not seem to be part of her normal jewel box
