HRH PRINCESS MICHAEL OF KENT SPEAKS EXCLUSIVELY TO YTL LIFE ABOUT HER NEW BOOK, A CHEETAH’S TALE, AND WHY CONSERVATION EFFORTS ARE MORE CRUCIAL NOW.
H er Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent recently published her seventh book, A Cheetah’s Tale, which focuses on her teenage years spent on her father’s farm in Mozambique - a considerable departure from her previous works of historical non-fiction and fiction, such as The Anjou Trilogy.
In the exquisite surroundings of the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur’s Presidential Suite, Princess Michael is in full cheetah mode. She is wearing a pair of magnificent pearl earrings encircled by cheetah-patterned rims, and a necklace crafted from the shell of a Tahitian black lip oyster, which comes adorned with her own drawing of a cheetah’s face.
“I am involved in cheetah conservation and wrote a cheetah into my trilogy, all of which made me aware of how endangered the cheetah is,” says Princess Michael, Patron of the Hoedspruit
