On Monday night, Princess Marie and Hereditary Prince Alois were present for the opening of the Schatzkammer Liechtenstein, or Liechtenstein treasury. The new exhibition in Vaduz mainly consists of the art collection by Adulf Peter Goop, including Fabergé's Apple Blossom Egg, now owned by the Liechtenstein state, as well as items on loan by the Princely Family, including the replica of the Ducal Hat, once the most expensive crown there was. In addition, the Princely Family has loaned paintings, old military and hunting weapons, representative gifts from King Friedrich II of Prussia, called "the Great", and Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria, and more.
