Happy Birthday to Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein, who turns 50 today. The eldest daughter of Prince Max, Duke in Bavaria and Countess Elisabeth Christina Douglas-Stjernorp auf Mühlhausen und Langenstein, she has four younger sisters, and is the heiress presumptive to the Jacobite claim to the Throne of England. Educated in Bavaria and the UK, in 1993, she married Alois, the Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein. The couple have four children and since 2004, when her husband became Regent, Hereditary Princess Sophie has been the de-facto ‘First Lady’ of Liechtenstein, carrying out official duties at home and abroad, and supporting charitable work, including the Sophie of Liechtenstein Foundation for Woman and Child and the Liechtenstein Red Cross. I wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
