They make a descent couple. :) I just found an interesting coincidence that 3 generations of Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein (Franz Joseph II, Hans-Adam II, and Alois) all have several sons, but only one daughter. :P

It appears that the Liechtenstein Princely family is busy in Russia: promoting the country, opening the art exhibition and meeting the Russian beau-monde and government. It is not surprising because Russian rich people use the Liechtenstein banks quite a lot.

As reported by Komsolskaya Pravda, Hereditary Prince Alois presented the brooch "Monomakh's Cap" to President Medvedev. Prince Alois returned the above brooch to Russia fulfilling Mr. Dvorsky's request, who was a native Muscovite and is a citizen of Liechtenstein. Made by Faberge, the brooch "Monomakh's Cap" will be kept in the Armory Chamber (http://www.kreml.ru/en/main/museums/armoury/).

They've successfully managed to keep Josef Wenzel under wraps. He's been virtually invisible for ages.

Not only him, but all the children...and not only Alois and Sophie did, but all the Princely Family...
Where does Joseph Wenzel study and/or live?

They are quite a handsome family. It is nice to see that they purposely avoid the limelight. Life for the children is probably more balanced and relaxed than for those royals who are always being chased by photographers.

With all respect to Warren and his incredible knowledge on these matters, I believe his interpretation of protocol and precedence is a little misleading. An annointed sovereign, whether or not he is an ex-king, always outranks a prince who may be an extant head of state. The formal court protocol of any state is only valid within that country; there is no universal rule other than those of a diplomatic and UN nature.

The Grimaldis of Monaco were accorded high precedence by Queen Victoria, but within the European high nobility are considered of equal status to nobles bearing the appellation, Serene Highness.

No, Prince Hans Adam has not abdicated; he still is the Reigning Prince of Liechtenstein.
In 2004, he turned the power of making governmental decisions to his son, Hereditary Prince Alois, but he remains the Head of State, like his father Prince Franz Josef did in 1984 with Hans Adam.

Prince Alois is on a two-day visit to Germany from April 14th to 15th.

It's the first bilateral visit by a head of state of Liechtenstein in Germany.
The visit underscores the new stage in relations between Germany and
Liechtenstein, which was initiated by the conclusion of an agreement on
the exchange of tax information in September 2009 and ongoing,
constructive negotiations on an additional tax treaties.

Today Prince Alois met with President Horst Khler and Berlin's mayor.


German President Horst Khler looks on as Prince Alois signs the golden
book as they meet at the presidential palace Schloss Bellevue in Berlin,
on April 14, 2010 prior bilateral talks.
