I recently wrote to Their Serene Highnesses The Prince and Princess of Liechtenstein requesting information for a school project on Liechtenstein, TSH most graciously sent me 4 large book on the Royal Family and they also sent me a photograph of themselves which they signed for me. The Heriditory Prince and Princess also enclosed asigned photograph. This was a pleasent suprise as I had not requested a signed Photo.

Prince and Princess are not as snobbish as they may seem. They are great people, however Princess Sophie is more reserved and does not like to be so much in the spotlight. Prince Alois is very proud of sharing his families history with anyone who would like to know more about them. Brings great pleasure in doing so. Of course he has people who do this for them and also the photos are presigned.

You can see that from her photos. She does seem sweet but reserved.

I knew that a lot of the European royal houses were related especially through Queen Victoria. However, I did not know that the Liechtenstein Princely Family was related to them as well. I found the following link: http://www.warholm.nu/Liechtenstein Click on FAQ and scroll down.

Thought to post it just in case some of you were interested.

Thanks Kerry :). Here's the extract from that site with some added detail:

Liechtenstein - United Kingdom
Prince Hans Adam II and Queen Elizabeth II are seventh cousins once removed. They are descendants of Prince Johan Willem Friso of Nassau-Dietz, Prince of Orange (1686-1711). These are the lines of descent:

• Johan Willem Friso > Charlotta Amalia > Karl Friedrich of Baden > Karl Ludwig > Karoline > Sophie of Bavaria > Karl Ludwig of Austria > Elisabeth > Franz Josef II of Liechtenstein > Hans Adam II

• Johan Willem Friso > Willem IV > Caroline > Henriette of Nassau-Weilburg > Alexander of Württemberg > Franz of Teck > Queen Mary > George VI > Elizabeth II.

Could someone explain the relation of "once, twice, etc., removed". I've never understood the term(s). What does it mean?

It gets complicated, but those two lines of descent make it easier. Charlotta Amalia and Willem IV were brother and sister. Their children, Karl Friedrich of Baden and Caroline are first cousins. Count down the generations from there. A simpler way of looking at it is to say they are very distantly related. :)

Thanks Warren. That works for me. My mom said that the removed term has to do with being related but of different generations. The room got hazy after that so I'll stick with your explanation of being distant relatives.

Did anyone take notice of the Liechtenstein family not being on the billionaire list? Take a peek if you get a chance.

http://www.forbes.com/home/lists/200...ople_land.html

Not sure what it means. I didn't find them on the Drop-off List either.

Maybe there's been a discreet phone call to request removal from the list. Otherwise, who knows? :)

As far as I know they have taken a back seat somewhat on "spotlight" regarding money situations. So I think that Warren is right regarding them not being on the list.

Yeah, I thought about that too. I for one wouldn't want my personal net worth published for all to see. I know that some extremely rich families have been the target of kidnappings throughout the world, especially from poor and destitute countries.

Also, it sends another message...none of your business.:p

That's something I admire about the Liechtenstein family. Privacy. I'm glad we don't see them all the time. It makes it that much more special when we do :)

I admire them for being private too but I'm salivating at mouth wanting some news, any news. Especially of our most famous and elusive couple, Max and Angela.

I've often said kudos to them for their privacy but every now and then they should accommodate us by giving us a little peek or tidbit into their world.

Yeah, if only it was that simple.
