These are beautiful, beautiful pictures. Princess Michael usually looks quite elegant, as do Prince Michael and their children.

Yes, I see what you mean, Albina. He looks like an elderly George V in picture 4.

Huh? Princess Michael was launching Family Portrait Week, an annual fundraising activity of the Variety Club of Great Britain, one of the UK's main children's charities.
Are you suggesting Princess Michael should refuse to publicly support charity fundraisers to ensure she's not accused of "loving the limelight"?
If some of the people attending these charity functions ask to have their photo taken with the Princess would you be happier if she refused?

I feel a bit sorry for Princess M. I know she says all the negative comments about her don't get to her but it must be very disheartening when you are trying to do good and some people still can't say anything nice about you. She must sometimes wonder why she bothers at all.

Yes, playing "kick the royal" is becoming a regular sport for some members here at TRF.

Okay, my comment was sarcastic at worst, and what is wrong with that? I do see Princess Michael, as being one to love the limelight. Her whole behaviour just shows it IN MY HONEST OPINION... You don't hear it about the Duchess of G, do you? there is a reason why, look at the pics of the ceremonies when the whole British RF got together on the balcony of Buckingham palace in the 1980's with Diana and Sarah, Princess M is always somehow in the center, with the main branch, not nicely on the side with the duchesses of K and G,and princess Alexandra... H'mm

What is wrong with it? Now let's see... the stated reason for your negative attitude to Princess Michael is her positioning on the Buckingham Palace balcony in the 1980's.
On that basis you posted that her launching a charity event in 2009 is "loving the limelight".
I'd say it's a pretty poor and vapid justification for your snarky post.

You know, if one of my causes were highlighted and I were getting publicity for it, I'd slut myself around by golly! (Probably a good thing nobody is asking!)
As it is, Princess Michael looked lovely and carried herself well for the charity she represented.

It has been my pleasure to see the Moderator stepped in to defend Princess Michael. She might enjoy basking in the limelight. At the same time, she does not frequent the limelight these days. She participated in the charity event, which does not fully qualify for loving the limelight.

Are you suggesting the Moderators are less fair to some members of the BRF than others?

Oh, I don't think Al meant that at all. I think that princess Michael was on a mission, she performed it admirably and eloquently and didn't deserve any untoward comments.
If she pulled a Celine Dion and usurped a party to hog the limelight, well thing I think it would be warrented. But obviously, this wasn't the case. .

My post was an answer to the discussion between Warren and auntie (see posts #284, 286, 287, and 288).
