In 1993 the duchess married hereditary prince Alois of Liechtenstein in Vaduz. The couple had 4 children: Prince Joseph Wenzel (1995), Princess Marie Caroline (1996), prince Georg Antonius (1999) and Prince Nikolaus (2000)

The princess is a patron of the Liechtenstein Red Cross, the Liechtenstein Animal Welfare Association and the Pricness Sophie Foundation for Woman and Child.

Because neither her uncle Franz, not her father Max Emanuel have sons, the princess and her descendants will inherit the Jacobite claim to England, Scotland and Ireland.
