yeah, sam, he has a bit of weak chin. the beard not only masks that, it gives him an international allure. it also brings out his resemblance to the Romanovs.

I thank you for your nice words, indeed an interesting read Skydragon.

Also loved the pictures and I had to share it with you.

Polly, I believe that first picture you mention is from their religious wedding... a photo from their civil wedding (that happened 5 years before) was posted at the Other Noble Weddings Thread, I believe by Alexandria, not sure... take a look there.

Regards,
mtbcm

Why do they keep mentioning their son and daughter as their sons? I'm a little confuse about that.

They look great, I hardly see members of the British royal family shown so much public affection like they do. In every picture she has that stand-by-your-man pose letting the prince be the one in the spotlight. I don't care what the tabloids say, they do make a loving couple.

Totally agree! He actually resembles Prince Charles (who also has a bit of a weak chin) in some of his earlier pics.

Prince & Princess Michael of Kent come across as a very traditional couple. I never would've guessed it. It's kinda nice actually. They really seem to care for eachother. Whatever they've been through I applaud them for "making it work".

Mtbcm, thank you very much for sharing the wonderful pics with us and taking the time to post the interview as well!! It's very interesting to read!

Romy and I have already talked about filling this thread with some more older pics and I think this is a good opportunity to start doing this
One of my favourite pics:

I love the pictures posted so far, as I'm also a fan of Princess Michael, thank you mtbcm and Iceflower! And yes, Iceflower, let's go
To give it a start here is a picture I like too. She looks so natural on it.
