"This kind of high-profile visit is welcome at a time when we are trying to reach out to high-end tourists," Sri Lanka Tourism's Acting Director General Vipula Wanigasekera was quoted as saying in the statement.

Prince Michael of Kent is a grandson of King George V and Queen Mary and a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. He is representing the Queen at certain functions in Commonwealth realms.

  1. Princess Michael is a wonderful representative of the RF. She is a very glamorous and attractive woman in her best years. People, who have met her are full of respect for her, she is a warm and brilliant communicator. THR are best ambassadors for the UK. All the best to them in 2012. Hopefully we can get a lot of good news from them.
