While it is nice to see the couple, Princess Michael appears to be overwhelming the event.

It was a "Coats and Collars" Event.

With that appearance she'll be in the news for sure

Your comment made me laugh iceflower. I love Princess Michael but, to be honest, when I browsed through these photos I thought she'd make a great character on that hilarious new American sitcom "Suburgatory".

That's a great event to attend but, oh my, how many other little pooches can Princess Michael hide in her voluminous robe??

Prince and Princess Michael are going to be the Royal representatives at the Lord Mayor's banquet for the President of Turkey on Wednesday night. Yeah!

I agree, this was a grand appearance. I can't say I didn't like it though, a bit over the top, certainly not boring!

Ha! So true. I'm so drawn to strong characters like PMoK (but I know I'm in the minority)

^ Me too, and I know how you mean it. It's such a boring era, nobody seems to like eccentricity or glamour anymore... Well at least on the royal scene there's still one person who can fascinate us with her appearances. Marie-Christine: Love it or Leave it.

We so seldom hear anything positive about Princess Michael in mass media outlets. Even these positive tidbits of information are accompanied by acerbic remarks about her past faux pas. When meeting in person, people spoke kindly of her and were generally impressed with her. It is always a pleasure for me to see Prince and Princess Michael representing the UK or undertaking engagements. They do it with flair, raffinnement and elegance that can be found in the old school aristocracy.

Yes, Princess Michael can definitely be classified as a strong personality. She always brings her own grand style to an occasion or event.

I remember that someone once wrote on a blog, I guess that person was even from Britain, that if Marie-Christine had become princess of any other European country she would have been "the star", but with her personality she simply couldn't win in England, mainly because of the rather aggressive press. I don't know if that's true or not, but I do think the British press has indeed created a rather unfair image of Princess Michael. I'm not saying that Princess Michael is without fault, she certainly has made mistakes, but... I may be biased as I too had the pleasure of meeting her and I found her perfectly nice, funny and overall simply adorable.

Yes,unlike some other family members who are saints

Just kidding...from the start she was doomed because she was German(Austrian),her father was revealed an SS member and because of proudly pointing out her royal and noble ancestry,which is in fact the grandest of all family members that had entered the family since Prince Philipp...

Pleae excuse me for mentioning this, but in fact Prince and Princess Michael of Kent seldom represent the Queen or other members of the British Royal Family in an official capacity. I should think that such official appearances number one a year, if that!

It has been kind of you to comment on my post. I did not write "representing the UK on behalf of the British royal family". Prince and Princess Michael happen to be invited to state banquets and receptions. This means they do represent the UK, not any other country, alongside other attendees. I hope I have clarified the situation since you appear to be so fussy about it.

Well, IMHO they don't represent the UK unless they are charged with that particular task by the Queen, which indeed the couple have been on a number of occasions. Otherwise at any function they attend, private or state, they are there as guests surely, and not representatives of the UK.

The other week we saw Princess Michael in Italy. On that occasion she was apparently representing Prince Philip, who was indisposed on that particular day. Even so, this was not representing the UK, it was representing Prince Philip.

It has been kind of you to provide some additional information. At the same time, I think it would be better not to argue over the semantics of "representing the UK".

I would like to see Princess Michael being given the family orders regardless of whether she is officially representing the Queen/ the UK or whatever.. I think she's "earned her stripes"

She may get one posthumously,when she doesn't represent a "threat" to them anymore

LOL! Yes, that could be possible.


BTW, I wonder why there are no pics from the Kazakh Gala or Sparks' Winter Ball this year? The press coverage concerning the state banquet wasn't exactly grand, not one single pic of Princess Michael at the Media Reception at BP either...
