Princess Michael of Kent has explained how she and her husband have been
hit by austerity; meaning they can no longer dine out as it's "too

The Princess, who is an interior designer and author, told The
an interview to promote her debut novel: "I am in very austere economic
times too, thank you very much!"

"We’ve cut back dramatically. I mean we never go out to dinner unless we go
to somebody’s house. We never go to restaurants. That’s too extravagant."

The Princess, who lives with her husband at Kensington Palace, added: "We
invite people here [Kensington Palace]. I cook. Well, if I’m giving a
dinner party I get in help."
