Unconventional Monaco - inviting his sister's kids to the 'Royal Box' is a good idea. It might have been even better if Albert wouldn't have forget about his other nieces and nephew. Could have been also a great experience and nice treat at least for Louis and Pauline. Where are they?!?!?! I just don't believe all those explanations about their continiuing absence. These poor kids are just second class relatives and the future will show what it does to them. In a prinicpality where the Prince is living openly with his mistress it woudn't really matter to invite the illegitimate kids of his sister. Not to speak of his own offsprings - out of wedlock.
I become more and more immune to this false charme of Monaco - still living on the achievements of the previous generation but unable to keep up their standard.

^ It is up to Stephanie on whether or not her children attend any events. I'm sure that if the Casiraghi Trio can go, then Stephanie's children have the same invitation. She has always kept her children out of the public eye as much as could. So, there is no need to blame Albert.

Let me add to my earlier post before we get totally sidetracked from the subject of this thread:
  • We don't know why Stephanie's kids do not participate in official events, so let's not speculate on why they are not in attendance;
  • This thread is about the Grand Prix and not about Charlene and Albert's relationship nor is it about his children and their participation in official events so I think we can leave those topics out as well.

Let's stay on topic. Any questions..can be directed to any of the Monaco mods and/or TRF administrators via PM .

I'm astonished that every time people do not see Stephanie or her children to a Monaco event, they are surprised. Since her youth and especially since she become mother, Stephanie has always said that she does not like attending these events and that she wanted to preserve the maximum possible her children from these obligations. She follows what she said, she has always been like this. Where is the problem??

Exactly! She is very involved in the charities that are close to her heart and attends the Red Cross Ball for obvious reasons. Likewise with Caroline. She is involved with the charities closest to her heart as well. The opera, the ballet, the annual floral show and of course the balls are what she is involved including AMADE. Plus others. Stephanie recently brought her eldest daughter to the circus with her but then that makes sense too. Stephanie has grown a lot since her father's death. I am so pleased to see what she is doing. Most importantly she has managed to keep her love life off the pages of the tabloids - Also for the sake of her kids. Good for Stephanie!!

I think you guys might want to reread that post and look at the transparency of it--Is it really Stephanie's kids that are at issue?

What do you think? Was Gabrielle Chanel right, when she once said, that the knees of a woman are not pretty enough to be shown, that they should always be covered by the skirt?

Sadly, his wife is known as "Princess Pushy"...it's funny how those labels stick!
