Hi,

She looks wonderful, but he should trim that horrible white beard or better yet, get rid of it... Ugh!!

I agree on one side, she looks beautiful as always (very red ). But he has always looked quite odd without his beard (though I always found him handsome). I really don't think he would look better without it - especially because his hair on the head has become so rare

I must disagree: I think Prince Michael looks wonderful with the beard. And I simply cannot imagine him without the beard; it would be, well, weird
Princess Michael looks characteristically beautiful.

Prince and Princess Michael looked wonderful as usually. I have to say that Princess Michael effortlessly pulls off very big pieces of jewellery.

Princess Michael certainly has the personality to carry off the red ensemble with style. However, IMO,she could do with styling her hair a bit better than she had it that evening.

Without the beard, he looks "weak chinned." You can see him without it at the time of his marriage. He looks much better with it!

Hi,

Well, what can I say - I dislike beards...
I think men look younger and more cleanly without them.
I suggest that if he wants to keep a beard and because he looks weak chinned without one, that he trim it up from that scraggly looking mess on his face.

Too bad he can't transfer some of it to the top of his head!!

Men who have lots of hair in their beards and on their bodies tend to have less uptop. Maybe it's a way of compensating.

No wonder William grew that beard at Christmas!

Seriously, I liked William's beard and I like Prince Michael's. I think it lends an air of gravitas.

I suspect that it was Princess Michael's idea for him to grow a beard, she has amazingly good taste, and it was a good change for his image, and makes him look more royal. The fact is, he didn't have one prior to his marriage.

The pics are great. The Princess looks so warm and friendly in them and SPARKS is such a worthy charity that it's a pity engagements like this don't feature more in the press. But then the papers wouldn't dream of showing her acually doing something good now would they?

With the Queen about to begin charging them 120,000 a year to rent their apartment at Kensington Palace, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent look as if they are about to take a major hit to their income at the worst possible time.

Princess Michael of Kent risks being another statistic of the recession - Telegraph

Princess Michael of Kent faces losing her job at the 'Harrods of antiques' after the firm went into administration.

I didn't even know Princess Michael had a paying job.

She also writes historical novels and worked as a interior decorator before her marriage.

I've read all three of her books ("Crowned in a Far Country: Portraits of Eight Royal Brides", "Cupid and the King" and "The Serpent and The Moon: Two Rivals for the Love of a Renaissance King") and found her style of writing very interesting and engaging. I hope she considers adding a fourth book to her bibliography soon enough.

I have read them as well and enjoyed it I think she is now working on a book about Elizabeth Stuart, a granddaughter of Mary Stuart and known as the "Winter Queen", but I'm not sure about it. More information about it you can find in an interview from fall 2004: Barnes*&*Noble.com - Her Royal Highness, Princess Michael of Kent - Books: Meet the Writers

This interview is also interesting because she's been asked about her favourite books, music and movies etc. in it.

Thank you for the link to the interview, Dierna23!
I am surprised to discover that the Princess and I share not only our preference in books (and she mentioned some of my most favourite ones), but also in music (Wagner's Ring Cycle is one of my all-time favourites), movies and, of course, love for History.

I should really like to read a well-researched book about Elizabeth Stuart: she had an interesting and eventful life and with Princess Michaels' gift of writing, I'm sure it will be a fascinating read.
