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

IN HER LAT­EST BOOK, PRINCESS MICHAEL DE­SCRIBES HAND-REAR­ING AN OR­PHANED CHEE­TAH CUB CALLED TESS THAT SHE SUC­CESS­FULLY RE­LEASES INTO THE WILD.
