Well Princess Michael's website details a whole portfolio of business interests and one can deduce she is probably paid by the art gallery to represent them (she was recently in NYC at a show) and clients who have hired her to decorate hotel suites.

Prince Michael receives his military pension + a pension from the Queen and I notice that he mentions that he represents the Queen in commonwealth countries outside of the UK (so the tab would either be picked up by the government or the businesses who have hired him as a consultant).

Hope this helps

What pension does Prince Michael receive from the Queen? For what reason? I know she was picking up the tab for the rent on the Kensington Palace apartment but that was supposed to have come to an end by now.

I guess it's a pension from her private reserves, granted for the rest of his life.

Could not find the link to the Mirror story but it was in 2002 that the Queen began paying the 10,000 GBP a month rent on the Michaels apartment in KP. That arrangement came to an end in 2008.

So another non-story by the DM again. The headline suggests PM was told by Buckingham Place to tone the party down then we discover that she and the prince decided to do it of their own accord due to the recession. If anything they should be commended for taking into account the feelings of the public at such a time unlike a certain Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their £15,000 per week jolly to the Carribean. But then some people are never criticised by the press whilst others like PM get in in the neck all the time.

Tak tak. Exactly. They don't work for their mother's soul, as a good ol' Greek friend would say.

Angela, this must be the first time I see you talk reasonably, good for you!

Taki is an attention seeking weirdo. He once said that he admires the Wehrmacht and he has insulted many people over the years. I don't get why people always speak badly of Princess Michael. She's one of the sweetest persons I've ever met.

Titles aside, I wonder what kind of gentleman would ever make such an uncouth remark about a woman, a n y woman!! It's a disgrace, even if he meant it as a joke again. Argh!

It is great that Prince and Princess Michael visited San Francisco. Hopefully they enjoyed some of excellent food the city has to offer.

It has often been suggested that they are a "rent-a-royal" couple, so pretty much whoever invites them, has the pleasure of fundng their trip and paying their fees.
