This photo shows his left hand (assuming it isn't reversed because sometimes photos are flipped from left to right )

In Germany, people wear their wedding ring on the right hand. I don't know how it is in Liechtenstein.

There are quite a few European countries where the wedding ring/band is worn on the right hand. It seems as Liechtenstein is one of those countries.

Look at the following pic of Hereditary Princess Sophie with her ring on her left hand.

On the other point, the pics that I have seen of Princess Angela have shown her wedding ring on her left. Sorry I can't post the pic that I do have; I'm not sure who give credit to if I was to upload it. Also, I've never seen a wedding band on Prince Max or Hereditary Prince Alois.

I wouldn't be surprised if Princess Angela still follows the American tradition of the wedding band on the left hand.

Oxygen, that's exactly my point. What girl over here doesn't grow up looking forward to getting that ring on her left ring finger?

But...Her ring is rather European with the center stone being other than a diamond. She sports a nice looking sapphire set vice the typical diamond solitare and band we wear on this side of the Atlantic. It looks like it might be a Liechtenstein tradition.

That looks like her right hand to me.

Thanks BB. I meant the right hand. I also remember seeing an old pic of Princess Marie with what looks to be the same ring on her right ring finger.

While unsuccessfully searching Google for a different pic of Princess Marie in honour of her birthday, I came across this pic. It may have been posted earlier, but nonetheless...

Thank you Warren, they look lovely together. Photos of Prince Max and Princess Angela are so scarce we love to see them even if we've seen them before!

I have to agree with you. I do so love the pic since I did have it as one of my previous avatars. The couple was attending the wedding of Prince Donatus and Princess Floria of Hesse.

Since the Liechtenstein screen-writers are continuing their long-term strike, there is no alternative other than to show repeats.

This might be viewed as rehashed news but with a little variation. Tells us a little more about the family.

Greetings,
Does anybody know anything about Prinz Alfons' outfit? Is it traditional dress from Liechtenstein?
He is such a little heartbreaker, the spitting image of his dad and he looks like he is going to be very tall! How tall are the men in the family? Prince Maximilian looks to be at least 6'3"!

alfons is dressed in the characteristic austrian countryside-look and wearing a so called "lederhose" (short trousers made of leather of deer). the lichtensteins are austrian-bohemian origin - it typical for austrian-german nobility to wear the countryside look....

Alfons is very similar to Max in that picture.
And congrats to Maximillian for being listed as Wealth-Bulletin’s rising star in management.

Thanks! i was not entirely certain. He looks so handsome in that outfit. He truly looks like his father!

It would appear that this was a big event for little Alfons to attend. it was a great way for him to meet what I believe to be his extended family.

Mysterm Woman With Max In Earlier thread?

En Passant:
I took note of this mystery woman pictured with H.S.H. Maximillian in this thread:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f73/prince-maximilian-princess-angela-1-july-2005-may-2007-a-6655-5.html
I tried to do so sleuthing using Fotobank and babel fish.com. I was able to get a rough translation which yielded this:

Описание:
Свадеба Ванессы фон Бисмарк и Максимилиана Вайнера, Фридрихсру, Германия, 28 мая 2005. На фото - князь Лихтенштейна Константин (Prince Constantin) и принцесса Мари (Princess Marie) и князь Максимилиан (Prince Maximilian) с женой.
ENGLISH: Description: [Svadeba] Vanessa von Bismarck and Maksimilian [Vayner], To [fridrikhsru], Germany, on May 28, 2005. On the photo- prince of Lichtenstein Constantine (Prince Of constantin) and princess Marie (Princess Of marie) and prince Maksimilian (Prince Of maximilian) with the wife.
This was the wedding of:
Vanessa von Bismarck wedding to Maximilian Weiner
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9A01E4DD1139F93AA15756C0A9639C8B63


That is the best I could come up with.

BrooklynGirl,
Thanks for your efforts. I think we all can agree that the woman in the photo isn't Princess Angela. Unfortunately, photo agencies do make mistakes. So she still remains a mystery.

Oh Well...

Oh Well...
She looks vaguely familiar somehow.
Anyway, I too am looking forward to the pictures from National Day. Can't wait to see how much Alfons has grown.
BTW: Is he named after a family member?
