I can't sympathize with this family... if the business is doing so bad, most people in the "real world" would call it quits and find something else that would bring them income.  Poor things can't go out to eat most people who support themselves and family can't do that themselves.  Where's my smallest violin I'll play them a sympathy song.

Today is the 69th birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent. Over the years, Princess Michael (whose real name is Marie-Christine) has become the subject of fascination to many for some of the most baffling, intriguing and humorous quotes from a member of the Royal Family.

1 On her lineage and her ancestors,
“Sometimes people say, “Oh well, we all descend from Adam and Eve.” But do you descend from Charlemagne directly? Do you descend from Saint King Louis IX?.. I do.”
.
2 On planning for the future to her husband Prince Michael,
“If you died first, I have to think about whether I’d stay here or go back to Austria.” I’m allowed to stay here – if I pay the rent!’

http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/insight/princessmichael-22175


Quote
5 On family and breeding,
“The English take the breeding of their horses and dogs more seriously than they do their children. God forbid that the wrong drop of blood should get into their labrador. But their children marry everywhere.”
.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Princess Pushy: Old Royals are 'boring' and as for Diana...She was 'uneducated'

PRINCESS Michael of Kent was under fire last night for branding older members of the Royal Family "boring" in an interview to promote her new book.


In an astonishing outburst, she also described Princess Diana as uneducated and said she could not cope with fame because she did not have a strict mother.

Princess Michael, who recently celebrated her 69th birthday, made her comments during a bizarre chat with disgraced media tycoon Conrad Black on Canadian TV.

Dubbed Princess Pushy, she has a history of making headlinegrabbing comments when trying to whip up interest in her books on European royalty.

She began the interview, however, by insisting she could not talk about Britain's Royal Family.

Then, when asked about William and Kate, she said: "Of course we're thrilled to have a beautiful young married couple with a baby.

"Let's hope there are more marriages soon because I think to have that young generation is terribly good for the people. The people love to see happy young people and I think the older generation are a bit boring for most people."

MC wasn't saying she found the older members of the Royal Family boring but merely stating that the public in general do - sadly I think this is true and that we live in a youth obsessed culture.

Also it is interesting to note that MC is giving this interview with Conrad Black - MC has remained a loyal friend of Conrad Black and his wife Barbara Amiel throughout their troubles when most people in what is called society dropped them like a hot brick. These people who dropped the Blacks were those who had feasted and drank at their table and in some cases owed their careers and promotions to them.   

Re MC's remarks re Diana - it is true that Diana's mother was absent due to the divorce and remarriage. It is true to say a good solid education does ground people.

Many people have sought to give reasons as to how Diana's life could have been better managed (a clumsy choice of words but I can't express it any better) - Just after her death i  their memorial edition C

Banksy in the ranks-y: Prince Michael of Kent inspects female soldier at passing out parade... but fails to notice her rebellious 'Molotov cocktail' tattoo
 Female soldier sports iconic tattoo on her leg at her passing out parade
 But luckily for her commanding officer Prince Michael failed to spot it
 The tattoo is of one of the elusive graffiti artist's most celebrated pieces

It depicts a man in a riot preparing to hurl a bunch of flowers

Army regulations prohibit tattoos of 'an excessive political nature'

Rules state tattoos should not be visible while the soldier is in uniform

Princess Michael of Kent to present history lessons via YouTube
Princess Michael of Kent, member of the Royal Family and now a historical novelist, plans to promote her work via YouTube
Princess Michael of Kent is planning her own YouTube channel to promote her debut as a historical novelist.

The princess appeared at the Hay Festival to discuss her fiction debut, a 15th century royal romance called The Queen of Four Kingdoms.

It is the first of a trilogy.

In order to boost sales, she is embracing online marketing and making a series of two-minute videos on the periods of history covered in her books.

"This is an experiment I'm trying out, to make these little videos," she explained.

"I thought my website first but, who knows, maybe YouTube if they're good enough."

The Queen launched her own YouTube channel in 2007 but Princess Michael will be the only other member of the Royal Family to appear on the site.

The subject of her novel is one of the 69-year-old princess's distant forebears, Yolande of Aragon.

It is her first foray into fiction after publishing three non-fiction books. "I have to tell you, I've always been rather snobby about historical fiction," she said.
