Victoria Silvstedt has at her blog photos of the christening of the daughter of Gareth and Roisin Galvin. Her name is Kaia Rose. She was christened at the end of March.

I wonder why Victoria S. was invited! She seems to be everywhere! Beautiful pics though, for a happy occasion!
I know that the other brother of Charlene had a baby too but can't find anything

About as suitable as Grace was when she was young. What is suitability anyway, I thought it was about love.

I know princess Charlene was born in Rhodesia in a family of mixed British/German descent. I also know her native language is English. However, since she grew up in South Africa, I wonder if she also speaks Afrikaans. Does anyone know ?

Also, has she learned French since moving to Monaco ?

Well, she 12 when she moved to South Africa so she would have started learning Afrikaans then as it was still compulsory I think (it was the dying days of apartheid) - maybe one of the South African posters could say. I know friends of mine had to pass Afrikaans to get the school leaving certificate and get into university but they are a few years older than Charlene. I've no idea what kind of level she has but she isn't a natural language learner - after nearly a decade in Monaco her French is still pretty basic.

IIRC, she mentioned in a pre-wedding interview that she and Albert conversed in English. When asked whether she spoke any Afrikaans, she said laughing only some certain words when she was agitated and/or angry.
