Oh come on. It is obvious that, if she has ever said it, it was said privately!! And what has that to do with Princess Michael loving publicity? Nonsense. But the poor woman will always have her critics.

Well... Princess Michael was not fond of the late Diana, Princess of Wales and said so on multiple occasions. Her opinion on the Wales' marriage turned out to be accurate. Furthermore,a fair number of TRF members shared it.
Now Princess Michael has got more or less the same opinion about Miss Middleton. Who knows? ... but she might be correct again.

And why would MC or anyone 'shut their mouth' when it comes to the future King's wife? Everyone in England (and abroad) has an opinion, why not express it?! Freedom of speech, remember? Princess Michael hasn't offended anyone and she hasn't speculated on anything either. Moreover, someone needed to talk IMHO, and make William 'get the message' at last! lol

Actually from what I read (The Diana Chronicles, Diana, The Way We Were) by the time of the divorce and the Princess of Wales' death relations between the too were warmer. Around the time of the divorce Princess Michael sent a letter to Diana telling her it would be ridiculous of Diana to curtsy to her. When the Princess was killed PM and the Duchess of Kent sent letters to Paul Burell expressing their grief..

But I do think PM is entitled to her own opinions.

This may just be the press taking MC's comments out of context, but if it is true, this is just aniother example of how the Princess Pushy is a complete loose cannon who will do anything to attract attention or make some money. IMO, its pretty naive of MC to have made such comments.

That's right. Princess Michael and the late Princess of Wales were on friendly terms with each other. But only the two women would be able to know that for sure.

This article is absurd, but I'm sure it won't give Princess Michael sleepless nights.

In this context, I would like, en passant, to mention that Prince Michael looked dashing once again and I hope that he enjoyed the meeting!

It appears to me that the late Diana, Princess of Wales, re-evaluated relationships with people around her and attempted to mend fences with some of them after her divorce.

At least Marie-Christine is a genuine person. Just like her dear mother.

Yes I agree. What I like about PM is that she's blunt and honest. Perhaps too blunt at times.

Just like her dear mother? Care to elaborate?

PM is getting formal recognition for her charity work very soon. IMO it's time she got the Royal Family Order as well, with even Camilla getting it I think it smacks of a kind of persecution, but maybe that's just me.

Good for Ella to continue her studies. Anthropology is very interesting, IMO. As to Princess Michael's charitable work, I feel that the papers owed that to her. Shall we call it 'atonement'?

I agree. I was almost afraid that this would never happen. Good for her!

Ms. Seward's postive opinion on Princess Michael's charity work has been a pleasant surprise to read. Finally she has been recongised for something good.

Prince Michael of Kent admits he and his wife spend 'a lot of time apart' but dismisses marriage rumours | Mail Online

Quote:
Prince Michael of Kent has shrugged off questions about the state of his marriage, insisting they have a 'tremendous' relationship.
The Queen's cousin admitted that he and his wife spend 'a lot of time apart' but insisted that was only because they had different interests.
Michael, who has been married to the Princess for 32 years, said their separate interests made for a 'richer' life together.
'I think people put two and two together and make five. We spend a lot of time apart,' he told the Sunday Telegraph.
'The Princess is a writer and she likes to get to write. We both have different interests and, although some coincide, this makes for a much richer life than always doing the same thing. So we have a tremendous (married) life and we enjoy practically all of it.'

It is a ridiculous claim. Had there been significant troubles in the marriage, Prince and Princess Michael would have separated and divorced long ago.
