Prince and Princess Michael have become members of the extended family. This means that their official engagements are very rare.

It is great to see Princess Michael making a public appearance.

Prince Michael has never been a working member of the BRF, unlike his sister and brother. If his website isn't giving information then either he hasn't done anything or his staff aren't updating it anymore for some reason.

He was awarded the title of an Honorary Professor of the St. Petersburg Mining University for his "contribution to the development of the Russian-British relations". That may have been the main reason for his journey.

The ceremony took place yesterday, March 27:

I have to say, a lot of Americans like Princess Michael. They see her as one of the stylish members of the Royal Family, but she is not well-known as the other female royals.

She should promote her books in the U.S.

Sometimes when royals receive honorary titles or orders you wonder why. They seem to get them for simply visiting a country. That seems the contribution.

But that really isn't the case with Prince Michael. He has spent many years promoting good working between the two countries. He serves with the Russian British chamber of commerce who funds his trips to Russia. He us even a certified Russian translator.

Princess Michael to publish “inspiring” wildlife book. A Cheetah’s Tale is the first of Princess Michael’s books to detail aspects of her own life and she will undertake a number of promotional events later this year:

Marie-Christine has such a zest in her. Hungary must have a special meaning to her since her mother and maternal grandmother were Hungarian.

She is very prominent and outstanding Princess -
Her father Gunter is not mentioned by her and her family (everyone understand why, WWII stuff that needs to be forgotten, though he didn't support nazis, he was decent man), and her Grand father Count Friedfrich Szapary was Austria-Hungraian ambassador to Russian Empire - and he had to submit documents about war declaration.

Also she is a descendant of lots of European Royal houses, and by the way she descends from "Vampire Princess" Eleonore von Schwarzenberg

People are very well read in Hungary and there are plenty of excellent bookshops in the city. In one, I saw the Hungarian version of the most recent biography on Queen Elizabeth II.

Of-course Princess Michael's book will not be a best seller - the same as here in the UK but apparently there must be some demand for it to be published.

Marie-Christine published several books. If there was no any interest, the publishers would not continue with her, so it seems there is sufficient interest.

The Serpent And The Moon - Two Rivals For The Love Of A Renaissance King

Cupid And The King: Five Royal Paramours

Crowned In A Far Country - Portraits Of Eight Royal Brides

The Queen Of Four Kingdoms (Anjou Trilogy 1)

Agnčs Sorel, Mistress Of Beauty (Anjou Trilogy 2)

The Princess is a Dame Grand Cross in the Sternkreuzorden. This prestigious Austrian-Hungarian Order is only granted to ladies with 16 noble quarters.

Usually the Kaiserin was the Grand Mastress of the Sternkreuzorden. After the monarchy this position befell to the most important Archduchess. The current most important Archduchess is Francesca von Österreich née Freiin Thyssen-Bornemisza. She just felt short in the requirement of 16 noble quarters, so her sister-in-law Archduchess Gabriele is the current Grand Mastress.

Princess Michael had no problems in providing a full "Ahnenreihe".

Besides this the Princess is a Dame Grand Cross of Honor and Devotion in the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (Knights of Malta), a Dame Grand Cross in the Sacred Constantinian Military Order of St George (Bourbon-Two Sicilies), she is a Lady in the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Vatican).
