  4. Charlene looks great in red. Also loved Tatiana's dress (but her sunglasses looked ugly).

  5. I wish Charlene's hair was longer.
    Pierre and Beatrice look amazing. I just like them. But why isn't she wearing a bra? I thought she was breastfeeding.

  6. Charlene looks fabulous - the dress is gorgeous, very simple but elegant. I love the draping and graduated hemline as well as how it sweeps behind her. I like the pattern on the fabric which adds a bit of texture and interest. She takes centre stage which is as it should be.

    I like Beatrice's nod to Monaco national costume, she looks cool and understated.

    Andrea's little family is cute. Tatiana is faithful to her usual style and I like it - the summery floral design and tiered skirt look good.

  7. Andrea Casiraghi Grimaldi:
    Father: Stephano Casiraghi.
    Mother: Caroline Grimaldi-Louvet. (Consented and protected son of Caroline.
    Profession: Has no define profession.
    Jobs: Unknow.
    Noble rank: Neither.
    Noble titles: Neither.
    Contributions to Monaco: Neither.
    Hobby: Speed motor boats. Nothing serious.
    Status: Plebeian.
    According Salic law of Monaco (this was modify on 2012 constitution for Princess Gabriela), Andrea Casiraghi was the probable heir of his uncle (something ilogic), until born of Prince Albert sons. In fact, Andrea Casiraghi just has a possition in succession line just like his brothers and cousins, he has not and is not heir to any noble rank or title, he, his wife and his sons are plebians.

    1. Jorge - with all due respect, there are some errors here.

      Andrea's late father spelt his name with an f - Stefano.

      Why do you keep saying Grimaldi-Louvet? The Louvet name is several generations ago - if anything they are Polignacs, but the family name is Grimaldi.

      He and his brother are both major owner/shareholders in various Monaco businesses so he does contribute in the background.

      He is not especially interested in motor boats. I've seen more pictures of him skateboarding and doing winter sports than I have of him in a motor boat.

      I don't understand why you find it illogical that Andrea was seen as possible heir - as Caroline's eldest son and she was the heir before Albert's marriage, it seems to me quite logical to make that assumption.

      Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    2. Franny, thanks! A very interesting- and good comment! :)

    3. Thanks for your corection and yes, he was Ambassador and member of council but that´s one thing other is do something for Monaco. Yes, Louvet is a long-time surname but Polignac too; so that like Costello and others. I think you understand why I put Louvet. I am talking about rapid boat, I really don´t know hoe is called such sport but that is or was his sport. Yes, it´s Stefano, I forget its italian write.

      Yes, It´s illogical because even being Caroline´s favorite son, It was stupid to think Albert wouldn´t had sons. More when he had had at least two no leal sons. Any person intelligent had understand such thing. In that sense, It was illogical by part of all to think Andrea would be Duke of Valentinois and Ruler Prince of Monaco, It was so fool thinking. It seems illogical to think Albert would never married and of course had no sons. Really, put to Andrea or Pierre or Charlotte or Louis or Pauline or... like effective heir thinking Albert would no assume crown and would not marry and would not sons, that just that was totally illogic thing. It´s very simple.

    4. Thank you for your reply.

      Honestly, I don't understand why you choose Louvet in particular - it isn't Caroline's name any more than Costello. I agree it's part of the lineage.

      Personally, I don't think it's illogical (or involves any lack of intelligence) to assume that a man who had successfully avoided marriage for many years and whose succession was assured might continue that way. Andrea might not have been the most suitable candidate but it's a fact that until the twins were born, he was second in line. Anyway, it's no longer the case and I'm sure that Andrea, as much as everyone else, is relieved! 😃

      Lastly, I don't think Andrea is Caroline's favourite - she may have been protective of him, he certainly strikes me as being sensitive and the most affected by his father's death but that mean she has preferences (or ones that are public).

      Have a good day.

    5. Sorry - I meant to say "that doesn't mean she has preferences"

  9. Many errors, the Constitution was changed in 2002 and not 2012.

    Gabriella was born in 2014, his brother Jacques who is the heir of the throne

    1. Yes, It was in 2002 but in 2012 was made corrections and in one or another case, even Jacques is elder that Gabriella, Gabriella can be Ruler Princess of Monaco in case Jacques by one or another reason can not rules. It´s simple to understand, is it not true? .... In another way to say it. ..... Whilst nor Caroline neithr Stephanie have the same rights than Albert because Salic law, Gabriella has in fact all same rights to rule Monaco than Jacques because law was changed. is it not true?

  10. Tatiana Santodomingo.
    Uncle: Julio Mario Santodomingo, a colombian bussiness man who knows to Grace Kelly when she was in Colombia filming a movie called "Green Fire" with Stewar Granger and Paul Douglas; in fact, Gace Kelly known many colombian people whos today are important but in that time no.
    Noble rank: Plebian.
    Noble titles: Neither.
    Profession: Neither (Possibly Photographer).
    Jobs: Neither.
    Contributions to Monaco: Neither.
    According to Salic Monaco law she was consort pretender to Monaco but with its modification on 2012 in favor to Princess Gabriela and born of Albert sons this leaved to be.
    Labors: Nothing remarkable.
    Santodomingo: It´s a spanish surname without any historical relevance for Spain, Colombia or Panamá history; with exception of Julio Mario Santodomingo who acquired A brewing company following a debt and constructing a high bussiness called "Bavaria",
    really has no historical relevance.

    1. She runs a very successful high end award winning fair trade fashion business - Muzungu Sisters. She may have help and it may not be full-time but a little unfair to call it unremarkable.

      Delete
    2. All depend you call remarkable or not remarkable. Do you really think I am unjust with my comment? Think it about.

      Let us retire all millions and palaces and luxury houses and all of that not real Magazines noble aura of Caroline and Stephanie sons, of al them, What do you think would be remarkable in them?

      They simply would be just like any common person around the world that live daily. Them, What is remarkable or not remarkable?

      Delete
    3. Indeed - it's all perspective.

      However, I think running a business that tries to be fair to the suppliers and be ethical in its dealings with them, that has been recognised within the fashion industry enough to be given an award is not unremarkable.

      I'm not denying the incredible privilege nor claiming she has made some amazing scientific breakthrough but to say her contribution is not remarkable is slightly unjust.

    4. ok. The unjust is a prespective too. So much time An American philosopher sais something interesting: "If a man has nothing to carry bread at your sons table and other posses millions, something is worng." ... Of course, this sentence can apparently not has something about discussion but that leaves so much to think about people or ourselves.

      Into your personal judgment my comment can be unjust because it is a little hurting to your "sense"? or something but also you can be wrong in your personal judgment about my comment. So, I apologize with if that satisfy you but I am correct in my comment.

      Again I say you "A Triara make no a Princess".

    5. No apology is necessary Jorge - it's not about satisfying me. I don't think you are "correct" or that I am "correct" - we just have different opinions on what we consider makes someone's passage through this life remarkable.

    6. I agree With Jorge that Tatiana Casiraghi's business is unremarkable. The brand takes very inexpensive and barely ethnic handicrafts (they are "replicas" made by ethnic people) and resells them for exorbitant prices. This is not a sustainable or culturally sensitive practice. The same was done in the United States with "Indian" crafts: produced with inauthentic materials supplied to the laborers, produced in marginally authentic ways (such as directing weavers to change their indigenous patterns to be more commercial), and sold so that the broker, not the laborer, gets the bulk of profits. Meanwhile the brand advertises itself with pictures of socialites and their children and their exotic travel destinations. With the lift of a little finger either of the co-owners of the Muzungu Sisters brand could make more significant and lasting changes for their laborers, and with the lift of one hand could influence political and economic progress for those who have no bread, as Jorge says, in Latin America and the Arab world - both of these heiresses come from politically powerful families. To work for a boss is not empowering when one has no choice. Women spending their afternoons making pom poms for $400 handbags is not empowering. It's humiliating.
