Does anyone know about the family and background of Astrid Kohl? I've heard her described as the daughter of an Italian industrialist, but that's about it. If she's the same Astrid Kohl mentioned in this 1993 W Magazine article, she is an old friend of the Miller sisters and a longtime fixture of the jetset.

W magazine (Aug 93)

I've perused the general threads on the Liechstenstein royals and haven't seen anything on her. But I apologise if I started a thread on something that's been covered.

Aha! This 1995 Tatler's article on the Miller sisters describes Astrid as the niece of Helmut Kohl and "the sort who....buys Renoirs when she is depressed".

Tatler's Magazine (June 95)

And a 'Royal News' blurb from the time of her marriage gives her parents' names as Theodor Kohl and Ingrid Schlechta.

She is lovely, and kind of resembles Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa of Luxembourg. How long have they been together?

My condolences to the Princely Family.
The Princess was also the mother in law of Princess Marie d'Orleans, eldest daughter of the Count of Paris and wife of Prince Gundakkar, son of Hans Moritz and Clotilde.
Is it known where will she be buried? In the Furstliche Gruft in Vaduz?

How sad! Does anyone know how he died? Had he been ill? He was only 59. I am very sorry for his family's loss.

Good question white Princess. Who knows this answer? I am sure they do. I haven't heard any press on them though.

Several years ago they received a visit from Pope John Paul II, in 1990 if I remember correctly.

Life in Liechtenstein is very quiet: the princely family lives in a simple way, they usually visit the new Austrian and Swiss President of the Republic, when elected, or the German Regional President of Baden Wuerttemberg.
From a diplomatic point of view Switzerland represents the principality around the World, as far as I know the principality itself has following Embassies: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, US and United Nations.

Fuerst Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein bestowed the Liechtenstein order of Merit on prince Wolfgang von und zu Liechtenstein, this friday in Vienna. Prince Wolfgang was Liechtenstein's ambassador in Switzerland from 1996 to 2001 and was always active for the interests of the principality and the family.

Prince Wolfgang is the son of prince Karl Aloys and princess Elisabeth von Urach (Wuerttemberg. He married Countess Gabriele Basselet de la Rosee, with whom he has a daughter (Stephanie) and a son (Leopold).

Finally I've found my source...
The official visit of Pope John Paul II was paid in 1985 and not in 1990 as I have previously written; another official visit to Liechtenstein was paid by the Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky in 1975.
In 1980 Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh paid a private visit to Prince Franz Josef II of Liechtenstein, after their official visit to Switzerland.
