Princess Michael's pearls are stunning. I could only image how much this jewellery set cost ...

Public at large is entitled to form their personal opinion about the couple in question. As for accepting Prince and Princess Michael as King and Queen, it will never happen. No matter what they do, Prince and Princess Michael will be viewed negatively. Thus, it does not really matter what public may think of them.

Where is the "green with envy" smiley?
Where is the 'I am so short of money' smiley!

Princess Michael was quoted as saying at an event, "Anything for a free meal." I doubt that she meant it to sound as "poor mouth" as it came across, but that's the impression that stuck.

Is there any need for such adverse comments aimed at the couple in question? People, who met them in person, noted that they are polite and professional. They are no better or worse than any senior British Royals (e.g., Prince Andrew or Duchess of Cornwall). My relative was favourably impressed by Prince Michael's demeanor.
As for your question, Lady Gabriella (#32) and Lord Frederic (#31) are in the succession line according to this web-site Line of Succession to the British Throne.

The Princess's skin does look unusually smooth for her age, doesn't it?

Yes, it does. If I am not mistaken, there were some press stories a few years ago in relation to some "help" she might have had!

However polite and photogenic the Kents aren´t very popular in their own country and you hardly ever hear a good word about them. Unfortunately they are seen as ready to get anything for free and for pushing themselves into the limelight at every opportunity. I have a feeling it is more the Princess than the Prince but if their own people think that about them it doesn´t really matter what the outside world thinks.
My father´s favourite quote was "there is no such thing as a free lunch" and perhaps all these adverse comments they have to suffer are the price they have to pay...

So Prince Michael's in India. Anyone know what is his connection with the Royal Western India Turf Club , or is the connection with Cartier. So many BRF in India at the same time.

Isn´t his daughter Gabriella on again with her millionaire Indian boyfriend, he may get time to visit his family if they still live in India.

Ah, that's good thinking, Menarue. I had read about Lady Gabriella being back with her Indian boyfriend, but the two things didn't "click" with me until you mentioned it.

Gabriella's boyfriend, Atish Taseer comes from a well to do family in Delhi, but I do not think they are very wealthy. His mother, Tavleen Singh, is a well known journalist. His parents are divorced, and his father lives in Pakistan.

Oh well it was a good guess He is very very good looking, they make a lovely couple but a few million would come in handy I think perhaps they could get married and charge that for the photos? Oh well just and idea.

I am sure Princess Pushy can be their close advisor on how they can supplement their income. Maybe they could do a Big Brother style reality TV show featuring the family of Prince & Princess Michael of Kent!

There is no evidence Lady Ella is back with her ex-boyfriend, it was just a bit of hearsay reported in the Daily Mail a couple of weeks ago. I would also guess that Prince Michael's trip was organised some time ago as these things usually are. I think Aatish Taseer's family are quite wealthy though as his father owns the biggest newspaper in Pakistan.

WOW!!! Princess Michael looked absolutely stunning in a monochrome black-and-white outfit. She definitively knows how to choose flattering outfits and has taught Lady Gabriella to do so. Undoutedly she is my favourite among various members of the British royal family.
