Prince Michael, the American singer, has returned to his roots with a high-priced suit for a New Year’s Eve party in Moscow, where he will be spending the occasion with his Russian friends and his girlfriend.
Prince Michael is known for his deep ties to Russia and his recent purchase of a $50 million yacht in St. Petersburg, the largest private purchase of Russian property in recent years.
Prince Andrew and Kate Middleton are also staying at the Palace of the Holy Roman Emperor.
“The Royal Family and the Royal Canadian Air Force will be joining me for this celebration,” Prince Michael said in a statement released by his spokeswoman.
“As a result of a number of unforeseen circumstances, we are postponing our next event until the following Monday.”
The Palace of Versailles and other official venues will be open to the public for the event.
Prince Philip and Princess Charlotte will be on hand at a dinner at the palace on Monday night.
The royal family, which is also expected to attend the dinner, is the only official delegation to Russia for the holiday, and its members are known to have high standards for themselves.
Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, are also scheduled to visit Moscow on Tuesday night.
