I am just thrilled to know that Mr. Robert Miller has some Canadian blood in him. His mother was from the beautiful east coast island province of P.E.I. (Prince Edward Island). Stunning beautiful scenery and with very warm hearted folk who posses good ethical work sense. She left West Prince County and most likely came from Alberton, to work for an American family near Boston, Mass as a governess I believe. Someone else might want to add or correct me ...
Cheers,
MM

I don't know too much about his ancestry, I do know that Robert Miller grew up in Quincy, MA - just outside Boston. I believe at the time of MC's wedding, his mother (MC's grandmother) was still living in Quincy as there was a small mention of the family - and the wedding - in the social section of, I believe, The Boston Globe. But none of the Miller girls ever talk much about their parents' backgrounds, which, I've always said, is too bad.

Thank you for adding that Bella. You are right, they haven't revealed too much about their grandfamilies. Cheers,
MM

Here is a site with the alleged geneology of the Miller sisters. It only mention the ancestors from the Miller side, which just makes me more curious about the Pesantes side of the family.

To Olili, about the pic in this week's hello mag :
I've just downloaded the mag, the (nice) pic is the same I posted about page 8 of this thread on 30th August. I think the effect is just due to the dress and position (all natural, for once)...

Mr. Miller also has some background among the early English settlers in the American colonies. (We're distant cousins.)

Thanks for the picture, Iceflower. Pavlos and MC don't seem as visible as they used to be. This is a really nice picture, IMO. Her hair style is very flattering.

Thanks again, Ice. There's something sorta odd about the photos, though. Pavlos looks sorta strange. Not like himself. Maybe it's the expression. And MC's body language is very distant. She doesn't look too amused either.

There is something tragic about these pictures.

Its always lovely to see the couple, they seem like a perfect match, i hope one day we could see them at an event which does not have to do with anything celebrities attened etc. MC reminds me of the party that Valentino held, same hair etc. I like the outfit but the sleeves/jacket doesnt look right with the dress. would work with a staprless dress nicely.

To set the record straight, here's the quote in the context of the July 1995 Vogue article, from Pia Getty (neé Miller):

If, as everyone says, the Miller sisters are loaded with style, they thank their mother, Chantal, an Ecuadorian beauty who, like her daughters, married in her early 20s. They describe her taste as conservative with a penchant for Valentino; her grooming is impeccable. "Never bite your nails; don't get fat" is some of the advice Pia remembers their mother giving them at an early age.
Well, this is an entirely diferent story. "Neber bite your nails" is a legitimate and absolutely reasonable advise. On the other hand, "Keep your nails always manicured" is a very shallow and inappropriate one. So folks, we need to be careful about how we relay various statements made by other people. It is inappropriate to victimize people.
Thank you Warren for the explanation.
