Prince Michael was 66 on July 4.

Coincidentally, Franklin Roosevelt was one of his godparents (as well as the kings of Greece and Norway and the queen of The Netherlands, among others).

I just think he's got that "look", I'm not sure how to explain it, it's that look when a rose has come full bloom and they start that wilt. Not incredibly noticeable, but you know the flower has bloomed and is getting ready for that whole circle of life sort of thing. . .

You made me laugh.. He is almost 70.years old....The bloom from that rose has fallen off a long time ago..........but....he can still go out on a date with an unknown who looks mighty young......

Pic 6.9.2008

Like Princess Eugenie and her mother Sarah, Prince and Princess
Michael of Kent have been guests at Maya Flick's birthday party
in Regensburg, Germany, September 6, 2008. The dress code for
that 50th birthday had been to wear red clothes.

I think Prince and Princess Michael did a decent job wearing red clothes. Due to some reason, I have never imagined Prince Michael wearing kilt, but he looked regal indeed. In view of Princess Michael's photo, I think that too much of the red cheapened her look. Of course, I can be wrong in assumptions.

What a nice picture, Prince Michael strutting his legs and everything! He always looks so regal these days, with the white beard and everything. He's starting to resemble some ancestors, and he looks like a Tsar Michael to me...

He looked rather like a Scottish king, did he not?
Of course Marie-Christine looked DEE-LISH.

I see what you mean, Al_bina about Princess Michael looking a bit "cheap." The head-dress doesn't do her any favours--looks a bit "Moulin Rouge" to me. I can't think of another picture of Prince Michael in a kilt except when he was a page at someone's wedding...perhaps the Queen's?

He has a "cheeky" smile in Pic 1. Cute.

I think the two of them together look as if they're in costume for something. Fortunately for them that's sort of the point...

I've noticed that they holiday together as a couple often which I think proves that they have a happy marraige and not the marraige of convenience that some sections of the press try to make out it is.

I can´t see why it would be a marriage of convenience for either parties as Christine didn´t have money and he had to give up his place in the line of succession to the throne as she was a catholic..... he too is not wealthy so it must have been love.
I wouldn´t take it as a sign that they are holidaying together though...

..... it is often reported that all is not well in the Kent marriage only because of the number of other "very close" male friends that the Princess has had. I don't think it was a marriage of convenience at the outset!

Muriel you wrote what I was thinking..... It had to be love at the outset but some of her holidays were not in her husband´s company.

"Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are to pay rent at a commercial rate for their Kensington Palace apartment for the first time, Buckingham Palace said today..."
'Princess Pushy' to pay £10,000 a month rent on Kensington Palace apartment for first time | Mail Online
Given the current economic situation, which may entail some financial hardships for the Royal family, this news comes as no surprise.

Why do they have to pay for the apartment?
