I came across this signed Prince & Princess Michael of Kent Christmas card on eBay. It's not something I would buy but I do like the photo a lot (especially Freddy holding hands with his mother and wife). Just thought I'd share :)

Lovely picture of the family.
Am waiting for the Daily Mail to suggest that the seller is Princess Michael herself, writing and selling off these cards for profit!

I wonder why one would sell Christmas cards from Prince and Princess Michael...moreover it seems that they sent the card to some friends if not relatives, selling it seems to me rather tacky.

As far as I know Princess Michael has sent those Christmas cards with the picture of Freddie's wedding to all of the charities and organizations she's involved with too.

Thank you for the pictures Iceflower. Prince Michael looks as regal as ever!!

I have a question concerning Marie Christine. I can not remember having ever seen a picture of her before her wedding with Michael,as a young woman, child, teenager..... Does anybody have pictures or know where to find them? Thanks in advance!

She has an autobiography that Russo has read and got at the library a long time ago that might. In fact, Russo might go hunt that down and re-read it.

Perhaps this may be the only book in which old pictures could be included (sadly I still haven't bought it).

From what I've read after the scandal concerning her father in 1985 Prince Michael phased all pictures of the Princess before their wedding out. There are still no pictures available and actually that's the oldest picture of MC I know:

There might be old articles with pictures, though.

Thanks, Di. You're a star! Is this picture from before the wedding? Pity that there are no other pictures, she must have been stunning. I mean even with 65 she still is!

Isn't there anything from when she was married to what's-his-name-Trowbridge?

Yes, Thomas Troubridge. No, there aren't any pictures either. Perhaps there may be old articles from papers and magazines before 1985 with some pictures of her earlier life, but after 1985 nothing has been published anymore. From what I know it must have been such a horrible experience for MC that her father was a subject in the British press back then that she decided everything before her marriage is strictly private.

Yes, apparently it is from the seventies. I agree with PrinceS, she looks a bit like a Hippie.

My thoughts exactly! This is amazing, I realised just now that I never saw M-C looking younger than this! Thanks for sharing, Dierna!

In the book "MC-The adventures of a Maverick Princess" there is a pic of her at 16 with jet black hair and she is stunning.

Thanks for the photo!
I have to say that Princess Michael's look is similar to the people of that generation.
