Funeral of Princess Marie of Liechtenstein

The State Funeral of the Princess of Liechtenstein at Vaduz Cathedral in Liechtenstein on August 28th, which began with members of the family, including Prince Hans Adam II, curtsying to the coffin.  After the service, the coffin was followed by the immediate family members as they made their way to the burial. The dispossessed Countess Marie Aglaë Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau married Prince Hans-Adam in 1967 and became the Princess Consort of the wealthy Alpine Principality in 1989. Princess Marie passed away peacefully in Grabs at the age of 81, after suffering a stroke earlier last week.

In addition to the extended Princely Family, Royal Guests and Relatives in attendance included Queen Sofía of Spain, Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg and Princess Caroline of Hanover. Most of Princess Marie’s grandchildren gave individual addresses.

  1. I watched the whole funeral and it was lovely, sober, and dignified. I think they were speaking German, so I didn’t understand what they were saying, but being Catholic I was able to understand everything that was going on. She was much loved by her family and adopted country, and she will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace.

  2. I Think Princess Marie of Liechtenstein Is on the same level as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Diana, Princess of Wales, Princess Grace of Monaco, Queen ‘Masenate Mohato Seeiso of Lesotho, Queen Letizia of Spain, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Princess Paola of Belgium, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Princess Charlene of Monaco, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Queen Noor al-Hussain of Jordan, Princess Sofia of Sweden, Queen Naa Tsotsoo Soyoo, Queen Raja Zarith Sofiah of Johor, Queen Sirikit of Thailand, Queen Anne Marie of Greece, Beatrice Borromeo-Casiraghi,

  3. I was only able to watch a small part of the ceremony, but it was a very solemn occasion. I was glad to see that Royals from abroad were also present. Now, I might be mistaken (as my don for recognising people is close to non-existing), but I thought I also saw HRH The Duke of Bavaria sitting in one of the pews. So could there have been more lesser known foreign Royals present also?
