Princess denies having designs on furniture tycoon
April 24, 2006

LONDON: Princess Michael of Kent's spokesman has denied claims that the princess is having an affair with a Russian millionaire.
The News of the World reported that the 61-year-old Princess, who is married to the Queen's cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, shared a romantic break with the furniture tycoon Mikhail Kravchenko.
The newspaper published photos of the pair together in Venice, including one of the Princess holding hands with the 40-year-old.
Simon Astaire, a spokesman for the Princess, insisted the pair were just friends.
Mr Astaire said: "The Princess met Mikhail Kravchenko when she visited the interior design fair in Moscow late last year. A friendship developed through a mutual interest in design.

Princess Michael denies 'affair' with Russian millionaire

Princess Michael of Kent's spokesman has denied claims that the royal was having an affair with a Russian millionaire toy boy.
(...)
"The Princess met Mikhail Kravchenko when she visited the interior design fair in Moscow late last year which in fact, Her Royal Highness opened," Mr Astaire said.
"A friendship developed through a mutual interest in design. Getting to know him she became aware that his life had been struck by tragedy and seeking to be supportive of him their friendship has continued."

Prince Michael and Princess Michael are both interesting, rather eccentric characters with a flair for the dramatic.

Actually I think they fit each other very well; they're probably each other's best audience.

She's doesn't have to. She isn't on the civil list, she doesn't carry out engagements on behalf of the Queen. Really she can do as she wants.

The photos I saw of them in Venice don't look too conclusive to me, but strangely she looks old in them (and I have never seen her looking old in a photo).

I think News of the World also took photos of her slipping out of Texas millionaire's pad in the early morning hours wearing an ill-fitting Red wig several years ago. Perhaps they have an open marriage?

Nonetheless, I still love her. Every fiasco she gets herself into only endears her to me more!

This is getting off topic but is it true that Lord Frederick Windsor, Lady Gabrielle and the other Lords and Ladies of Windsor are technically princes and princess of Saxe-Coburg?

One could argue that by male lineal descent the children of the current Dukes of Gloucester and Kent, and of Prince Michael and the Earl of St Andrews, are Princes and Princesses of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Dukes and Duchesses of Saxony, but since these titles were given up in 1917 it would be a hard ask. Nonetheless, Earl Mountbatten was known to sign himself a Prince of Battenberg when visiting Hesse.

Technically, King George V renounced all German titles for British members of his family and their descendants in 1917.

Realistically, I suppose they are free to call themselves anything they want - just like any other human being - but I can't imagine why they'd bother.

I found two funny quotes about PMOK recently:

Given the furore over her friendship with a much younger Russian magnate, with whom she was pictured hand-in-hand in Venice last month, you would think the princess might play safe with her public engagements for a few weeks. But that would be to underestimate her jaw-dropping chutzpah. For flanking her last night were two men. The first was her husband, Prince Michael; the second was none other than her handsome young millionaire friend, Mikhail Kravchenko.
