thank you Warren. isn't it totally the same with his brother's(Duke of Kent)?

The Duke of Kent has essentially the same arms as his younger brother, except the anchors and crosses are reversed. Same thing with the current Duke of Gloucester and his elder brother - the labels were reversed. You can't have the exact same arms as another living person.

Prince Andrew
Countess of Wessex
princess alexandra of Kent

This shows the marks of cadency in the family, to show what to look for.

Princess Anne's standard is here. Her arms would look the same, except on a shield and surrounded by the garter.

Elspeth 10-16-2005 04:49 PM

The Gloucester standard is here:

This site, along with a couple of others, is given in the British Royal Links sticky in this forum if you want to go and have a look.

For those of you in the New York area...
"Royals and Their Pets" will be broadcast on Channel 13 on Monday evening / Tues morning 1:30 - 2:30 a.m. While it covers that general topic, the last part of the show features Princess Michael at Nether Lypiatt w/her cats.

thanks kelly&Elspeth.
but aren't standards different from coat of arms? coat of arms have the supporters, motto and everything?

First interview of the Princess since the Sheik scandal
 
Here an interesting interview with the Princess. The article is IMO quite objective, very informative and well written (even through you can guess through some nasty undertones that the journalist is not a fan of the Princess...:rolleyes: ).
Anyway, she seems very naive to me when she talks about the Sheik. I would like to hear your opinions on that.

From the Observer

An audience with Princess Michael

Having successfully dealt with the tangled love life of Henri II of France, Princess Michael of Kent now discusses her royal neighbours, the pleasures of laser treatment and being charmed by an undercover reporter. Tim Adams pays court

Sunday October 16, 2005
The Observer



I meet Princess Michael of Kent in her walled garden at Kensington Palace. There is a perfect green lawn. A flat, black square of pond. A stately magnolia. An ornamental bronze armadillo. And a cunning trompe l'oeil mirror that could convince her that all this might go on for ever. It's taken the princess a while to make this place her own. The garden, by rights, came with her husband's apartment, number 10 - 'They are called apartments, but, in fact, they are houses, in that they go from basement to roof; it's a little terrace, really' - which he was granted when they married 30 years ago. But the garden had always been Princess Alice's next door, and it wasn't right to turf her out, quite, so they thought they'd better bide their time.

It's a very interesting article. Just amazing how Pss Michael complains that her children were always in the public eye, unlike the glouchestors, huh whos fault is it?

Zonk 10-20-2005 06:11 PM

She is something else. But you gotta admit...she is entertaining.

I would agree that the Gloucester children (though they are adults now) are less in the public eye...but thats cause they choose to be. Let's see...her son is part of the jet set crowd...and so is the daughter to some extent. The only time you see the Gloucester kids are at major occiasions (Trooping of the Colour, family weddings, funerals, etc.)

james 10-23-2005 04:50 PM

I think that Lord Frederick is a shadow of his mother whereas Gabriella is her father's daughter. I like Princess Michael but I think she is in denial if she thinks that Freddie dosn't draw a cetain amount of attention to himself as she herself does. However it's more a personality thing than a situation of one kid being "good" and the other "bad". Ella and Freddie both achieved degrees and have successful careers but Freddie's flamboyant nature attracts attention whereas Ella is more reserved.

Re:
 
Prince and Princess Michael always remind me of that wonderful Novello number ;

"If you wonder what a Duke should be"

Substitute Duke for Prince and you them to a tee!

james 10-23-2005 05:59 PM

I'm not familiar with it can you elaborate?

BeatrixFan 10-23-2005 06:10 PM

Just you take another look at me..............

By Gad you can search your family tree but you'll NEVER find a Duke like me

james 10-23-2005 06:18 PM

Is this flattering or not....I'm not sure.

BeatrixFan 10-23-2005 06:21 PM

Re:
 
Flattering I think. If you want to know what a real Prince should be like - look at Prince Michael and that goes for Princess Michael too. You can look through any number of Princes/Princesses but you can't beat them.
