Happy Birthday Your Serene Highness


You'll be forgiven for having never heard of Liechtenstein's Hereditary Princess, Sophie, who today turns 43; either royalty from Catholic countries are so much better behaved than their Protestant counterparts or they're better at covering it up*. In fact, Liechtenstein's best-kept secret must be Sophie's sister-in-law, Princess Angela.

Nevertheless, Sophie's wedding - to Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein in July 1993 - ought to have been big time media fodder: a beautiful church in the picturesque capital Vaduz, a beaming blonde bride, and a HPLILF** for a groom. Clearly the Princely Family of Liechtenstein either has a very smart or a very stupid press secretary.

In the fullness of time Her Serene Highness will become the first lady in the land of the quaint mittel-European principality currently under the watchful eye of her father-in-law Hans Adam II and his wife Princess Marie Aglaƫ which she and her husband will, in turn, groom for their son, Prince Joseph Wenzel.

*Either way, no one messes around or up quite like the good ol' House of Windsor, am I right? Where my whiteys at?
**Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein I'd Like to Fuck.

Whoop, whoop! Or should I say, hear, hear, old chap! Now let's put the kettle on and enslave another continent.

Good-looking show on Prince Charles' other mistress (some Australian bint I have only vague recollections of- Trebor or Tryon or something) this weekend on Channel 4....

Oh who can keep track? There were so many bints in the 70s that ITV could have aired a show called Charlie's Bints; the reason he never got married earlier is they all got bored hearing him talk about architecture and organic gardening.
