That may be true in Duchess of Alba case, but the Liechtenstein royal is not hurting on cashflow. The LGT bank which is owned 100% by the family, makes around 300 million CHF every year. Here is a news link. https://www.lgt.com/en/news/lgt-repo...flows-in-2020/
The family also owns winery, real estate, forestry, and wind farms. All of these businesses produce cash flow steadily. A New York Times article estimates that Prince Hans Adam spent 18 million a year on art. Here is the NYT article link.

The billions of wealth attributed to the Fürst in popular media are also not the personal wealth but the fortune of the House, with the large art collection as main element.

To paraphrase the late Duchess of Alba: "Rich? Rich? I can not go to the supermarket with a Rembrandt under my arm" meaning that a family can be wealthy in assets but not necessarily in cashflow. The family Von und Zu Liechtenstein is quite extended and almost all of them work for their living. I can not think of any Liechtenstein Prince rolling their Euros or Swiss Francs in Monte-Carlo or Marbella.

Dr Craig Prescott, a constitutional lawyer, claims that Prince Joseph Wenzel is participating in government meetings.

"The Prince of Liechtenstein, Hans-Adam II, has already brought his grandson — not the heir, but the heir but one — into “meetings with ministers”. Dr Prescott explained that Prince Hans-Adam’s “more active role in politics” plays a role in the earlier preparations of his heirs.

He said: “I was thinking of Liechtenstein actually because I spoke with Prince Hans-Adam and Prince Alois [Hans-Adam’s son] of Liechtenstein a few weeks ago, and it’s interesting there because obviously the Prince of Liechtenstein has a much more active role in politics.

“They were already bringing, not the heir, but the heir but one, into meetings with ministers, because Prince Alois is exercising most of the functions on behalf of the reigning prince, and his son is already in meetings with ministers occasionally and he’s 26."
