I do like that photograph of Princess Michael. It's very glam and so regal that one simply can't mistake her for anyone else.

If you ever get a chance I highly recommend any of her books. They are really good reads and not at all gossipy, she really gets into the minds of the women she profiles. Cupid and the King is my favorite.

I did look at the auction house's website and the stuff on offer isn't really outstanding. I was looking for anything owned by Princess Marina or something that one could proudly show of but I don't think a ceramic tea strainer onced owned by Princess Michael will wow them on the Antiques Roadshow, as much as I love Princess M.

CIRENCESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 17: Animal figurines, some of the lots on view at the Princess Michael of Kent possessions auction preview at Moore Allen & Innocent on August 17, 2006 in Cirencester, England. Miscellaneous items from the Princess former country home Nether Lypiatt Manor are to be auctioned tomorrow. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images):



If you look at the first pic you can see that there is a lot of junk and trash - well, at least in my eyes, things you get as a present and that you keep in the hindmost corner of your cupboard - but I think there are also some precious objects like these paintings.


And lots of cats of course..

I saw a newspaper article detailing some of the items that were even worse and as a result were going to a car boot sale.

Thank you for the scans ice .

Why would anyone keep in her possession ceramic ducks with broken heads?! Worse even why would anyone want to sell it?!

Beats me !

Only today I saw that wonderful scans of yours, ice... she looked wonderful!!

The first picture is overwhelming. Alexandria is right, for a tall bride it would look lovely as a wedding gown...

I'm scanning an article from Hola magazine dated some years ago with the Princes in an home and intimate atmosphere - the Prince working in the garden and the Princess in the kitchen so it was really nice to see those posh pictures against the natural ones... I hope to be able to post them next week .

Regards,
mtbcm

You are most welcome, mtbcm I had the same in mind as to those broken things.. And I'm glad you finally found my scans and liked them as well, I'm already looking forward to the pics you talked about, I do not know them yet, but I already have an idea how they could look like

On post 167, on the left side, I noticed a couple of geese lost their heads, they came from the gift shop at the Tower of London?

decapitation jokes aside, I got to say... Wow! on post 153 she looks great! That lady exudes royalty in every take. I also like her because she loves cats.

Princess's cast-offs raise £8,500

Many of the items had been derided as "tat". But Princess Michael of Kent had the last laugh yesterday when many of the contents of her former home in the Cotswolds sold at auction for several hundred pounds more than the guide price.

Diana was not, princess Diana, she was, Diana, princess of wales, and could be styled princess Charles

The same was with Sarah,duchess of York, could be styled princess Andrew

Great pics, thanks a lot for posting, purple!
The princess looked very good and it seems to be a very interesting exhibition, surely a theme she herself is interested in

On the "Jewels of Royal and Princley Families" website it says that the jewellry the Princess is wearing in the above photos belonged to the Duchess of Windsor and was purchased by Prince Michael in 2004 from an auction at Christies in New York.The earclips were sold for $54.970 and the necklace (of which the brooch is part of) for $119,500.They are made of a very expensive quartz apparently and set with diamonds in the centre. And to think I thought it all looked like plastic! (Picture below from the Christies catalogue of "Jewels of Style-The Personal Collection of Fred Leighton"-Cecil Beaton circa 1967) "J.ewels of Style The Personal Collection of Fred Leighton"

oChristies "Je (Phot(
(To of the Duchess wearing the earclips and brooch as wels of Style The Personal Collection of Fred Leighton" saw the sale of the chalcedony suite. The earclips, lot 462, were sold for $54,970 (USD); the necklace, lot 463, was sold for $119,500 (USD);
