Liechtenstein National Day 2011-

Liechtenstein celebrated its National Day today. The Princely family, including Prince Hans-Adams II, Princess Marie, Prince Alois, and Princess Sophie were all in attendance. The only missing members seemed to be Prince Maximilian and Princess Angela.

This year's celebration were a sombre affair as the traditional mass was not performed: the Archbishop of Vaduz, the capital, has refused to perform the mass in protest of Liechtenstein allowing same-sex parternships beginning in September. (Go Liechtenstein!!!!)

Thank you for these Lyonaisse. Prince Hans-Adam II is such a sweetie. A great pity the traditional mass could not be performed as usual.

Marie Caroline is such a beauty. The whole family actually is very good looking.
Aren't there any more pics of the event?

The pics of Prince Benedikt are really cute, looks like it's been a bit trying and boring for him to spend the sunny day that way..


Here are some more pics:

Princess Marie never seems to age! She looks wonderful. So nice to see her, one of my favourite but lesser seen royals.

Furst Hans Adam and Furstin Marie are a very handsome couple.

I know Liechtenstein is tiny, but I really wish we saw more of this family.

There were more family members present than in recent years but it seems odd to me that Prince Max and family and Princess Tatiana and family almost never come. I understand Alois' line will continue the dynasty but it would be nice if the others came at least every other year.

I missed this bit of info from last year. Was there a Mass this year since it was the Feast of the Assumption?
