Meanwhile in Liechtenstein and France

Prince Robert, cousin of Grand Duke Henri and owner of the Domaine Clarence Dillon and thus of the famous wine estates Château Haut-Brion and Château La Mission Haut-Brion, has enhanced his properties. As it became known now, the prince bought the Domaine Allary Haut-Brion (formerly Domaine de la Passion Haut-Brion) that borders his own estates. In March 2008 the value of the land on the estate now belonging to Prince Robert was estimated at a value of £900,000.

Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein, husband of Luxembourg's Princess Margaretha, has also been busy during the last couple of weeks and months. The principality is looking for an unbundling of the state and the church. Prince Nikolaus, who is the brother of the Prince Hans-Adam II. and his country's non-resident ambassador to the Holy See, was asked by Liechtenstein's government to head a delegation that negotiated a concordat with the Vatican to achieve a secularisation. Yesterday evening, Prince Nikolaus took part in a special non-public session of the country's parliament.
