Princess Michael of Kent left the Olympics team dressage at Greenwich early on Tuesday to search for her beloved cat, which has gone missing.
Ruby, an 11-month-old Burmese, has not been seen since Monday morning. “The Princess is very, very worried,” says one of her friends.
Prince Michael’s wife has been knocking on doors at Kensington Palace, whose other residents include the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to see if the cat could have become accidentally shut in somewhere.
The Princess whose name is Marie-Christine, has had Ruby since before Christmas and the cat has never previously strayed outside the palace’s grounds. It is wearing a yellow collar, with a telephone number on it.
