Marriage & Family
In 1978, in Vienna, Prince Michael married Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz, daughter of Baron von Reibnitz and the former Countess Marianne Szapary.
Prince and Princess Michael have two children: Lord Frederick Windsor and Lady Gabriella Windsor.The family live at Kensington Palace in London.
Eighth in line to the throne at the time of his birth, the Prince lost his right of succession, under the 1701 Act of Settlement, following his marriage because the Princess is a Roman Catholic. His children, however, still have a claim to the throne having been obliged to be brought up in the Church of England.
