Were I a Russian monarchist, I'd likely support Prince Michael as well.
Mermaid, I am curious. What is the controversies, please explain? Thanks.

Georgiea, questions about the Romanov succession are best discussed in the Russian forum, not the British.

Russo is getting old! She had to look at the picture for a minute as she thought Princess Michael was standing next to the flying nun. . . .
As it is, both looked lovely.

The Prince Michael of Kent's fund is listed among the supporters of this annual garden event. So Princess Michael's annual appearance of the event is to be expected. Princess Michael looked lovely and enjoyed the event.

I thought that too. Princess Michael looked lovely. I wonder how heavy the hat? is.

A previous poster mentioned that the dress the designer Roza was wearing resembled Princess M's red dress. I suspect she did design it as she also made Sophie Winkleman's wedding dress on the Princess' recommendation and also Princess M's dress for Lord Freddie's wedding. I'm thinking that she may now be patronising Roza as her regular designer in the wake of Gianfranco Ferre's death (he being her favourite designer during most of her Royal career).

This can not be happening ... Princess Michael's ensemble was absolutely awkward. A turban paired with a polka dots shawl collar and a multi-chain necklace is a bit too much for one look. Her German sounded nice though.

Hate that dress anyway and with the turban the whole outfit is awful IMO. But it was interesting to hear her speaking German. Wev'e now had posts on this thread of her speaking that and French as well which has been interesting. It must be nice to be tri-lingual.

Yeah, ix-nay on the ess-dray. Russo rather thought Marie-Christine was in the middle of chemo with the head attire. . . .

She said that her outfit wasn't planned that way, it rather had something to do with the rainy weather in Zurich.

Anyway, her Austrian accent sounds great.

The third picture is the most faithful to her, I think. Her smile is very pretty.
Does she speak with an Austrian accent? To me, she sounds different from the German announcer.

She does, Mermaid1962. She sounds totally like an Austrian.

I loved hearing her speak German. I had to laugh because I bet the humidity gave her a nice blond afro before she wrapped it up. Years ago in my former occupation I used to shellac my hair into place and wish for the best as I got ready to meet clients

The Princess Michael speaks excellent Australian and Hungarian as well. The princess is always stylish, can't we display some good manners and pretend that we didn't notice her ensemble.
