Princess Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein and Rafe Worthington

I was delighted to see American Rafe Worthington accompany Princess Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein and her family to Liechtenstein's National Day on August 15.

Princess Marie Astrid is the second of three surviving children of Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein and a younger brother of Prince Hans Adam II, and Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg.  She has an older sister, Princess Maria Anunciata and a younger brother, Prince Josef.

I am most grateful to Tatjana Schnalzger, the photographer for the Vaterland, one of Liechtenstein's daily newspapers, for allowing me to use this photographs.   Thank you, Tatjana.

A very informative source told me in June that the couple were engaged.  So far there has not been an official announcement.   Princess Astrid does not carry out official engagements and lives a largely private life.

Friendly amendment: The caption for the first photo identifies Rafe Worthington as the man in the lighter suit. Unless my eyes deceive me, in this photograph he is wearing the darker suit and standing straight, with his hands behind his back, next to Princess Astrid.
