I found this article, and I must say was kind of harsh...but I will let all of you decide. It talks about putting a curse on Prince Albert because he refused to allow little Prince Eric Alexandre use the Grimaldi name. It also talks about the hypocracy of Prince Albert given the fact that he and Prince Rainier descended on the female side from illegitimacy.
Yes, that the article is harsh. Things and circumstances change. Prince Louis had to adopt his illegitimate daughter Charlotte and have her bear the Grimaldi name bec. there was no other descendants/heirs, and that the throne will pass to a German family who was related to the Grimaldis and they (including France) didn't want that. That was, what, 80 years ago. It was a matter of dynastic survival. But with this generation, there are quite a number of descendants so I guess they can impose the direct and legitimate rule.

Camille is considered illegitimate and therefore not in line for the throne. But she bears her father's name. Is it the law in France and Monaco that fathers have to give their consent for their illegitimate child to use their name? Just wondering.....

Oh, I thought that guy was a member of the family, too, given his proximity. But I couldn't place who he was.

Thanks!:)

It's harsh but makes some points. The whole curse thing is a bit infantile....I mean....when all else fails.....we'll curse him..??

Well, I don't think that any of the Ranier's grandkids have the Grimaldi name, and none of them carry a title of 'prince' or 'princess' except for only 1 that belongs to Caroline.

I just wish Albert figures out how many children he has fathered out there already...:p

Once again thanks to everyone for posting pics from this wonderful day! It was so nice to see them as a happy family.

I wonder if Countess Albina (she's a cousin of them) and Christian De Massey attended the festivities?

Talking

Here is another link to a great video (in german). You can see Caro and Co. dancing on the way to the party, Camille hugging Albert and Caro giving him a handkiss.

http://www.zdf.de/ZDFde/suche/1,1926,1000001,00.html

The video is at the bottom of the page and is called:
Fürst Albert II: Vom Saulus zum Paulus

You will see a research site, search for monaco and you will see it.
