Prince Michael of Kent, son of George, Duke of Kent gave up his right
to the throne in 1978 when he married the Roman Catholic Baroness
Marie-Christine von Reibnitz of Bohemia. They have two children, Lord
Frederick Windsor, born in 1979; and Lady Gabriella Windsor, born in
There was embarrassment in the Eighties when Princess Michael of
Kent's father, Baron Gunther von Reibnitz, was exposed as a former
Nazi party member and SS officer.
" It was being speculated for over a year, but now it appears that
Lady Gabriella Windsor, called Ella and 30th in line to the British
throne, will marry Aatish Taseer, 24-year-old son of the columnist
Tavleen Singh, soon. Prince and Princess Michael Kent will reportedly
announce that their 23-year-old daughter is to marry Aatish early
this year. The Prince and the Princess have no problem with Aatish
who, although born of a Muslim father, is said to be a practising
Sikh. In fact the Princess, who considers Aatish as one of the most
handsome young man, once reportedly said she would have no objection
if Prince Williams married a Muslim girl. .. [India Express Bureau]"
I wonder whether the Prince is not a bit too "open minded" to be a
reasonable candidate for an orthodox throne.
