Hi Ladies & Gentlemen,

I just noticed Princess Michael has a new website:
http://www.princessmichael.org.uk/ and her old princessmichael.com website now redirects there.

It looks very much like Prince Michael's site (probably the same web developer). She is a bit of a workaholic!

Thanks for the information!
Princess Michael is a Grand Dame of the Order of Malta. That is impressive.

THE popular weekly bike night held on Poole Quay has won a prestigious international safety award.

Presented by Prince Michael of Kent at a glittering ceremony at The Savoy Hotel in London, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award was given to Dorset Police, Poole Tourism and the volunteer marshals.

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent visited an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka earlier this month. Has anyone come across any other photos?

No, but thank you for sharing these! They are both into the protection of wild life, a very worthy cause!

As far as I know it's not true, but nobody knows exactly if she had ever been diagnosed with cancer.Personally I highly doubt it.

She has had skin cancer. She was diagnosed with skin cancer in 1999 and 2003. It became only known when she talked about it to patients during a hospital tour in 2003. So, if she had cancer now (and I hope not!) we wouldn't know about it because she keeps such things completely private.

'Princess Pushy' has her husband's birthday parties pooped for being too extravagant | Mail Online
Quote:
Princess Michael of Kent has been told to drop plans for a three-day celebration to mark her husbandís 70th birthday after they were deemed too extravagant.
She had wanted two parties and a lunch at Kensington Palace in July, but when her husband discovered the plans - and the £40,000 cost - he decided that they were too extravagant.

I was wondering, even if they are off the civil list, do their exoenses get paid for when they travel to represent the RF? Even if I criticize the michaels, I do think they are a breed, fast dieing of authentic royals, who dress and act the part with elegance and dignity.

If they do represent the BRF in any official capacity (such as the rebural of the late Empress Maria F sister of Queen Alexandra) I woudl imagine that any expenses associated are picked up by the Queen.

They don't do many official duties, after all.

I just love (sarcasm) the comments from the Daily Mail --- as per usual people don't have a clue on a particular subject before making nasty comments. The Michael's are not on the Civil List. But than again neither is William, Anne, Edward or Andrew, etc.

Also, I think is the Michael's business if they do or do not want to throw a price birthday party for the Prince. As long as they pay for it who cares. Now, I don't think you should pay for an extravagant party and than cry broke! Thats a different ball of wax!

I don't think Princess Michael really wanted an extravagant party, I think she just wants to organize something familiar, but specific.

Oh well, a Katie Nicholl article... I find it silly to write such stories when most of the DM readers may believe now that the 40.000 are taxpayer's money. And why sensible? Who cares if Princess Michael spends that amount of money for a private party as long as it is hers? Besides, you only get 70 once in a lifetime, who knows if Prince Michael will be around for his 80th, 90th etc.? However, he is a rather shy person, so he might not like the fuss of a big birthday bash...

@Auntie: I wish I knew if they're paid for such functions, but I don't. The Kents have represented the RF maybe once in a decade. Princess Michael represented the DoE in Italy last autumn and then I remember that both represented the Queen in Belize in the 1980's. Not that often...
