Welcome khalia!!!
Im wondering too now:p Ernest and Caroline? , or Andrea and Tatiana? I dont think that andrea knows spanish, but perhaps Tati speaks french?
Andrea, Char and Pierre speak french, english, italian and german But i think they speak most of time in french so i think that Char and Felix speak french (i guess he lives in paris ), Tati and Andrea:perhaps english, Caro and EA: no idea

Caroline and Ernst mainly speak English, Andrea and Tatiana probably French as she has lived and studied in PAris for years; same for Char and Felix.

I don't know if the trio speaks Spanish but Caro does (or so I've heard)

The Grimaldi family speak english so clearly...I thought they would have an accent since they live in France and know so many languages!

tatiana is probably very fluent in french since she grew up in switzerland and andrea is said to be fluent in english...and tatiana goes to school in london... so either french or english or both. :)

That makes sense...I'd guess more French simply because they both grew up in French speaking countries.

Caroline DID have a French accent in the early eighties. Stephanie claimed she didn't know English back then. Albert ALWAYS spoke English clearly, but with a stutter.**************************************

Actually Grace talked to her children in English, and there was a video on the web that clearly showed a two year old Caroline talking in English to her mom; plus in the early 80s Caro had already spent two years studying in England and Steph moved to the States, so I don't see how they could not know English very well...what's your source?

BTW, people if you can find it, watch the video; Grace and Rainier with Caro and Al interviewd in the Palace garden...too sweet!

Kisses

When they did American tv interviews, Caroline spoke with a french accent, Stephanie in french only, that was translated for the viewing audiences. Television in the 80's, is MY source.************************************

Are you sure? They do know English and speak it fluently.
Stephanie when I met her , spoke English with me and my little brothers ( she couldn't know we understood some french as well )
she knows English and French the same way ( she even once said she prefers to read in English)It's the same with Caroline and Albert.
They grew up perfectly bilingual.
The princesses children have also been exposed to the english language from their very young age on. The princesses kept the family tradition to read fairytales and stories to their little kids in two versions - English and French.

Caroline, I know for a fact, doesn't speak with a French accent. I distinctly remember her interview with Diane Sawyer and she spoke basic British standard English. Albert speaks perfect English as well. As for Stephanie, I'm not really sure.

Oh, and that video of Andrea, it's of him screaming some expletives in English at photographers. To me, he seemed to sound pretty American, although his voice was strikingly high-pitched.

What about speaking Italian? The Casiraghi's father was Italian, so I hope their children can understand this language, and Caro too
