Happy Birthday to Princess Angela of Liechtenstein, who turns 61 today! Born Angela Gisela Brown, the daughter of Javier Francisco Brown and Silvia Maritza Burke, in Bocas del Toro, Panama, she studied fashion at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, receiving the Oscar de la Renta award, before creating her own fashion label, “A. Brown”. In 2000, she married Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein, second son of Prince Hans Adam II and Princess Marie, becoming the first person of African descent to marry into a reigning European Royal Family, and despite some opposition, she was warmly welcomed by the Princely Family. The couple have one son, Prince Alfons. Princess Angela is quite private, but attends some family events in the Principality. I wish HSH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
