Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent

About this author

For more than twenty five years, Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent has pursued a successful career lecturing on historical topics. In her new book, A Cheetah's Tale, the Princess describes aspects of her own early life travelling in Africa and raising a cheetah cub. This unusual experience in the 1960s sparked her lifelong interest in conservation, of big cats especially. Among the many charities she supports, Princess Michael is currently Royal Patron of the Endangered Species Centre in South Africa (predominantly cheetahs) and also of The Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. She lives with her husband, Prince Michael of Kent, in Kensington Palace in London. Princess Michael is the author of three non-fiction books, and a novel trilogy.
