Prince and Princess Michael of Kent to sell family treasures

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent to sell family treasures

Around 200 lots belonging to Prince and Princess Michael of Kent will go under the hammer in November at an auction of their private family heirlooms. 

The items formerly belonged to the Prince's mother Marina who passed away in 1968. 

Along with his older brother, the Duke of Kent and sister Alexandra, Michael will sell the remaining treasures from her estate.

To be held at famed auction house Christie's, the sale will include paintings, tapestries, silverware and furniture, the Daily Mail reports.

They will, no doubt, be hoping the auction is as successful as the one when Viscount Linley sold off items belonging to his late mother, Princess Margaret in 2006.

Lord Linley and his sister Sarah Chatto, ended up making £14 million - five times Christie's original estimate.
