what was unfair about
it? It was the law at the time...and he was so far down the line that it was immaterial.

It made no difference, except for useless words. Prince Michael, was controlled by the Act of Settlement.
Most of his life he was second in line to the throne. Only a few months before his wedding he went down to third (which he was the first 12 years of his life as well); so this was after his engagement was announced and his niece still wasn't born when the couple decided not to go through with parliamentary approval - which I am sure they tried at first, he may have put up quite a fight during those months between engagement (June) and the announcement that NO approval would be sought (October).

Friso even famously said to reporters that they could do anything to his older brother as long as he was kept alive; otherwise he would have to be king!

The Liechtenstein royals only need to get approval by the reigning prince. If a member of the princely house of Liechtenstein marries without his approval, the consort and issue of the marriage will not be members of the princely house nor will the issue be in the line of succession.

But because the house law altogether excludes princesses' husbands and issue from membership of the princely house and succession to the throne, the princesses really do not need his permission.
