Tha Princely family is Roman Catholic.

They are a handsome family! Both Prince Max and Princess Angela are very attractive people, and little Alfons is so handsome! I think he was dressed adorably. Thank you for the information about the wedding Benjamin, and thank you for providing the links to the 3 photos Warren. This family is so rarely seen in public, any pictures we get are a treat. The only thing that would be better than this would be if I could see Princess Angela wearing something in a colour other than black, grey, white or khaki!

Alfons looked so adorable! Nice to see the family again especially since we didn't get a chance on National Day.

More significantly, it's good to see Alfons mixing with more than his Liechtenstein cousins. A Bavarian royal wedding is a full-on event attended by a good cross-section of the Gotha; as such it's another opportunity for the young prince to be introduced into and become familiar with the larger social circle of the royal and noble families.

Princess Angela's outfit was quite stylish IMO. The pics posted above along with a few from Seeger Press paint a beautiful outfit.

Alfons is a indeed Prince Charming: http://www.seegerpress-online.de/see...&ID=1189418571

Nice video!
Finally saw her with a hat...but I do wish she'd wear some color. I can't believe she was a fashion designer.

Well said. As they say you can teach a person to dress but Style and Class one either has it or not.

As far as the women of LI go, I think Angela fits right in. She's not as over the top as Pss Isabelle but not as retro as Sophie. She's in the middle. I think Pss Marie has a nice style, but again, very simple. But I wouldn't call her average.

Now, I do long to see Angela with her hair styled in a chignon or updo or something different from the way she usually wears it.

Oh my gosh he's growing into handsome and sweet Prince. Thumbs up to his parents for raising him so well and emphasising upon humility.

Thanks! It took me a while to figure out how to make the video. So it was a pain.

The whole family is rather private. As far as I know, when it comes to most official events either the Reigning Prince or Hereditary Prince carries out the duties representing the country. Prince Max is very busy in his capacity as head of LGT Bank.

There aren't that many official events in Liechtenstein. And the ones that happen usually only involve the hereditary couple and the reigning couple. Also, I would venture to say that most events that happen in Liechtenstein aren't covered by the press. You really have to dig for the few photos that we do get and when we get them, it's usually later than when it happened. Angela and Max have been at various society/royal weddings throughout the years and probably have a low-key social life with others in their social set. Max is th CEO of the family bank, so he's probably very active with that.

It seems she was born in Panama, but grew up, studied, worked, in N.Y., as a fashion designer. She was a sophisticated lady. It truly seems a match made in heaven.

I totally agre with you! I just think it's pitty that they met maybe a little "late" on her life, on the purely "biological" side of things. That of course imagining that they would like to have more kids. Maybe they just decided not to have more. But, considering that she was born in 1958, and they married in 2000 (wasn't it?) when she was almost 42, they didn't have time left for many kids. Someone said, previously on this thread, that nowadays women can have kids later in their life, and this is absolutely true. But, as a doctor, and a 41 yo woman madly in love with the idea of having a second child, I say I'll not try much longer: the risks of genetic problems for pregnancies after 43-44 yo are too big for running the risk. Specially when one already has a cute pie like Alfons (who looks like my son Henrique )

I read on a blog that Prince Max was a billionaire in his own right. No source was quoted but it makes you go hmmm. Has anyone heard this before?

The whole family are billionaires collectively (and I think most people say that when referring to any of the Princes of Liechtenstein for more effect). I know several blogs described Prince Wenceslas as a billionaire during that period when he was in the press for dating model Adriana Lima.

But, they also work for a living. ALL of them. So they are earning a living as well usually in banking or finance. They Princes also receive an ALLOWANCE. So, these are very wealthy people. Max is at least a millionaire but could very well be a billionaire in his own right.

Yes, they were...All I could find was this pic (hope I manage to post it here!) of the family on National Day. TSH Princes HA, Aloïs, and their wifes are clearlier seen, but one can also see TSH Princes Maximilian, Angela and Constantin.
