But who is the stunning Princess Maria-Anunciata of Liechtenstein?

Prince Louis, Princess Maria-Anunciata, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa in the Vatican

Last week, I published photos of the royal families attending the Beatification of Pope John Paul II in the Vatican. Since I read on Mad Hattery that Princess Maria Anunciata of Liechtenstein was there, I wanted to know 1/who was she, really? 2/maybe I could find who all these people sitting behind, happily chatting with Prince Louis and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume were.

Here is the family! Princess Maria-Anunciata (first on the left) is the eldest daughter of Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein (do not get him confused with Prince Nikolaos of Greece) and Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg

She was born Princess Maria-Anunciata Astrid Joséphine Veronica of Liechtenstein in Brussels, Belgium, in the very posh neighborhood of Uccle on May 12th, 1985. She will turn 26 next week and has a spot on the "let's get them married soon" category among the royals. 

Her younger sister, Marie-Astrid, is 23 and Josef-Emanuel turned 22 today, May 7th.
