My favourite is the rear view where PA put his arm around Alexandra.

And I'm glad Louis is there....

I don't find Alexandra beautiful yet...she still looks too much like her father Prince E-A.

But I am hopeful that the formidable Kelly-Grimaldi genes come to the forefront soon.....

No, you're right..... she isn't beautiful in conventional terms.
You will laugh probably, but I see a vague similarity between her and Mélanie de Lusignan...... not a stunning beauty, but someone wise before her time..... someone who can keep her own counsel....

^^ahah it's funny but I see the similarities too.

I agree that she's not a stunnig beauty, i mean, you won't look at her and think: "oh such a beautiful face" like probably most of us do with Charlotte. and, yes, she resembles her father a lot, which to me, is not that bad.
But what i like more about Alexandra is how happy she always seems to be. She has such a vibrating smile.... and that's refreshing to see in this family because her siblings always seemed to have more serious or even sad facial expressions.

Yes! You are right...Melanie is who she reminds me of as well. I couldn't put my finger on it...thanks Renata4711!

Little Alexandra could surprise me and become as beautiful as her mother and her sister...I reminder seeing photos of Princess Caroline as a child and marvelling later that she turned into the great beauty that she did...it wasn't always apparent imo.

ICAM with juliette that she is very obviously a happy and well loved child, despite the breakup of her parents.

You're absolutely right. Alexandra inherited her father's dominant genes, but, sometimes, in the way she turns her head, in her little nose, in some gestures and postures, the Grimaldi genes pop out clearly. As for her permanent joy and hapiness, i think it's one more proof of P. Caroline wonderful job as a mom ( no disregard for P. Ernst's job as a father, of course... ).

Alexandra

This is a great pic of her. Imo, she will be more beautiful than Charlotte. And that's something to say! Anyone where can i get that pic without watermarks?

That is a lovely picture. I think she will be Alexandra no more no less. A beauty in her own right.

I think Alexandra has a sense of tranquility (despite her parents marital circumstances) because she has grown up surrounded by love. Not to say that the Casiraghi Trio didn't know love....but I am sure in the beginning Caroline's grief was very strong...and while they had their uncles, aunts and grand parents (including Stefano's side)...its not the same as growing up without your father.

She is growing up FAST.

Aha, I too notice the similarity between little Alexandra and cousin Melanie de Massy, though I think it's mainly due to the fact that they both have wide flat kewpie doll type faces when seen head on, like here:

Melanie de Massy Pictures - Monaco National Day Celebrations - Zimbio

But then again so do Princess Caroline and Prince Ernst, as seen in these pics:

http://i1.tinypic.com/sg27gj.jpg

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_T4GLZmpZ2S...-of-monaco.jpg

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...p;d=1114170666


In conclusion, I think little Princess Alexandra is a perfect combination of both her parents, which can be seen more and more as she matures into a woman.

But that said, I've noticed that girls in general tend to take after their father in looks, whereas boys take after their mother. However, personality wise the opposite is true. Jmho.

What a joy it has been and will continue to be to see the maturation process of the lovely Princess Alexandra.

ps: one thing's for sure, both Charlotte and Alexandra are their mother's daughters, no doubt about that. They both resemble Caroline, they just don't resemble each other. :)

PA's favourite diver, Pierre Frolla, did his stuff again today by diving 24 metres deep into the Med in order to retrieve the flag for the 69th Grand Prix.

The flag was signed and dedicated by seven famous Open tennis players (Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Gael Monfils, Sebastien Loeb, Daniel Elena) and by PA and Pierre Frolla, in the presence of his nephews Andrea and Pierre.

Later on, it was raffled off for "Peace and Sport" (L'organisation pour la Paix par le Sport)
