Martial Arts, Drugs and Other Stuff

Yesterday, Hereditary Prince Alois attended the 2nd edition of the Dentokan-Black-Belt-Show at the Saal am Lindaplatz in Schaan. The event was organised by the local martial arts school.

Already in October and wholly unnoticed by us thus far, Prince Hans-Adam II gave an interview to a Liechtenstein youth magazine. -- Honestly, who can keep track with those gazillions of interviews the Princely Family gives while we are still waiting whether that info about a possible interview by Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie wasn't a canard after all?! -- In difference to the usual topics of state and finance, Prince Hans-Adam talks about his parents trying to give him an as normal upbringing as possible, his love for sciences and mathematics, his dislike for learning languages, singing and drawing, as well as the rareness - Were they? - of drugs in the 1960's in this (admittedly rather short) interview.

On November 8, Prince Nikolaus and Princess Margaretha were in Vaduz to make one of their sadly rather rare media-covered public appearances of the year by attending the 28th presentation of the Binding-Preis, an award recognising commitment to the causes of nature conservation and environmental protection.

And because this is a bit of a catching up post anyway, another bit of old news; on September 12, Hereditary Princess Sophie attended the jubilee concert of the symphony orchestra of Liechtenstein.
