I agree. She's got great bone structure. Her cheekbones would look fabulous with an upswept 'do.

I fully agree with you. Wearing her hair up makes Princess Michael look truly regal and polished. The Ewdwardian style updos suit her perfectly. (e.g.,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elizabeth_Drexel.jpg). Worn loose, Princess Michael's hair tends to look frizzy untidy.

Assuming it's the real deal, that ring is a whopping cabochon emerald.

Here is the information about the Festival and some photos
CONCEPTION OF THE "IMPERIAL GARDENS OF RUSSIA" SECOND INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL
œеждƒна€одн‹й „ес‚ивалŒ ˜мпе€а‚о€ские сад‹ *оссии - Presentation
As stated on the web-cite (the Russian version), this festival is held under the patronage of Mrs. Matvienko, Governor of St. Petersburg, and HRH Princess Michael of Kent and is organised by the Russian Museum with help of HRH Prince Michael of Kent's Charity Fund. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Princess Michael participates in the festival. Although her hair looks unkempt, she enjoys her trip to Russia.

Thanks for the video!
The first thing that attracted my attention is that Princess Michael has got a nice soft voice. Her pronunciation differs from that of other members of the British Royal family I have heard speaking (e.g., Her Majesty, Prince William, or Prince Henry). Furthermore, her accent has got a slight German sounding. Well ... my assumptions can be incorrect.
As for the overall look,
I like her Indo-Pakistani themed outfit, whereas her hairstyle is so-so. Unkempt frizzy hair worn loose is not the best choice for Princess Michael.

The princess seems really at home in Russia, she would have fit in so well in Imperialistic Russia!

As I have stated earlier, some Russians hold Prince and Princess Michael in respect because of their personal qualities and professionalism.

Indeed, Prince Michael is fluent in Russian, another reason Russians respect him for. Princess Michael does not speak Russian.

I'm glad, you liked the interview

Well, for me as a german, her accent reminds me more to an very little austrian accent, but I can be wrong also.

But indeed, she has a great voice and much charism in her behaviour and talking...

in my oppinion

I can't get it. The only time I saw her interviewed was when it was discovered that her father was a Nazi. She sounded quite Austrian that time.

I can not believe my eyes ... Princess Michael looks great even wearing her loose. Joining Lord Frederic and his fiance was a wise move on her part.

You need to go to Rex Features - Photographic press agency and picture library and type "Princess Michael of Kent" into a "search" link. Then depending on in what order you would like to see photos, click on "newest" or "oldest". There are 31 pages of photos.
