Liechtenstein: Alois and Sophie of Liechtenstein

On Friday arrived five postcards: two from Liechtenstein, one from Japan and two from Germany.

One of the cards from Liechtenstein shows Alois, Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein, and his wife Duchess Sophie of Bavaria. Alois of Liechtenstein was born in Zurich in 1968. He his the eldest son of Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein, and Countess Marie Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tettau. He married in 1993 and together with Sophie of Bavaria he has four children. Since 2004 he is Prince Regent of Liechtenstein with the power of making day-to-day governmental decisions. 
I sent this card card when I visited the country on my way back from Milan.

With a nice stamp:
Young animals of the Alpine region-Marmot (from set of four) (issued 03-06-2013)
with a pictorial postmark from Schaan
