Vietnamese Princess Living in South Florida
Interestingly around the time where the public eyes are on Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, South Florida discovered its own Vietnamese princess, Thi Nga a descendant of Imperial Majesty Emperor Gia Long. She was born in Saigon, but raised in France after her family was forced into exile. Thus she relates to the Cuban community in South Florida because they share a similar circumstance. Princess Thi Nga shared her story with WPBF 25 News and as well has her family's private Jade collection in an exhibit that will soon tour many countries. "After living in Europe and New York for many years, Thi-Nga decided to make South Florida her new home and even received the key to Miami Beach for her philanthropic work."
