Andrea Casiraghi Joins Monaco royals on National Holiday
21 NOVEMBER 2003
Three generations of Monaco's royal family presented a united family front this week, greeting well-wishers from the balcony of the royal palace in honour of the country's National Day.
Princess Caroline, Prince Albertand Princess Stephanie put aside their reported differences in order to stand alongside their father, who missed last year's ceremony for the first time in 53 years due to illness. Also making an appearance were Princess Caroline's husband Prince Ernst and son Andrea Casiraghi, who seems to be taking a more prominent role in royal family duties in recent months.
Newlywed Princess Stephanie appeared alone, with neither her children nor her husband, circus acrobat Adans Peres. Both royal sisters donned elegant suits for the occasion, Caroline in a Jacqueline Kennedy-style ensemble complete with pillbox hat, and her younger sister, who wore a new curly hairstyle, wearing bright blue.

Thats a cute car!! how old do you have to be to get your license in France? and is it a long process?
Here in New Zealand we are able to sit a theory test when we turn 15 and that enables us to learn to drive only with a full licensed person. (This is called the Learner stage) then after having your learners for 6th months we can sit a practical test and if passed you have whats called your restricted license which means you can drive by yourself and only carry passengers if you have a supervisor (which is someone who holds their full license) after a year of having your restricted you have to sit another practical test to finally get your full license. So in theory you can have your full license when you are 16 and a half.
Here's a picture of the whole car!! It is cute and Monaco70's informed me that it has a Monaco license plate!! I didn't even notice the Grimaldi shield... good observation!!!!
Yeah it has a Monaco License Plate, at least that's what the plates on the cars from Monaco that I've seen on TV or anywhere else look life (with the Grimaldi coat of arms). Anyway he chose a cool number B)
