I think Alex is a childhood friend of Tatiana. Makes it a little awkward for Charlotte, but they both seem to be handling it well.

IIRC Alexandre is the French male equivalent of Alexandra, and it's also the name of Prince Albert's illegitimate son (Alexandre Coste). It seems to be a fairly popular name within the family.

Alexandre Andrea Stefano is a lovely name, and I like how they honoured Stefano Casiraghi. It also flows nicely IMO. Like Archduchess Zelia, I'm also pleased that Sasha is just a nickname.

I have a quick question - is Sasha officially spelt with a c or an s? Wikipedia lists him as Sacha, but also say Sacha. (Yes, I know it's not the most reliable of sources, but it's interesting that they call Sacha two different variations of his name). I've always thought that Sasha is the female equivalent.

It's Sasha, according to Caroline's bracelet. It was mistakenly thought to be Sacha after Stephane Bern spelled it that way in a tweet revealing the name.

Thanks for your reply! I personally prefer it spelt with a c.

On a different note, I wonder who Sasha's godparents are, or if we'll ever know. The Prince's Palace didn't officially confirm Sasha's birth, so I doubt we'll get their conformation on godparents.

The palace didn't, but Caroline's press office did. If we get anything, it would probably be through them. But the palace tends to flip flop about giving information, so who knows. Fingers crossed anyway!

A better picture of Sasha on the day of his baptism: http://images.vanityfair.it/gallery/...2ba363ab47.jpg

I think Alex Dellal is the godfather. He was there at the baptism and at Tatiana's hen party on the Pacha this summer, he seems a very close friend of her. So maybe Alexandre is named after his godfather.

Tatiana, Andrea and Daphne
Andrea e Tatiana em Gstaad (antes do casamento) - A realeza

Tatiana and her mother
Tatiana com a mãe em Gstaad (provavelmente antes do casamento) - A realeza

Tatiana and Margherita Missoni
Tatiana e Margherita Missoni em Gstaad (provavelmente antes do casamento) - A realeza

These were all taken in Gstaad and likely before the wedding

From what he looked like as a teenager and (very) young man I thought heīd be one day one of the most beautiful men on this planet...
(like Karl Lagerfeld once said something like "Princess Carolines children are so beautiful you couldnīt almost bear it...)
I really donīt know what happened to him in the last 3 or so years! Heīs pale, dark shadows under his eyes, looking like not having enough to eat...
Normally finding beards a big plus and a win for men I think this beard makes him look stuffy and older than he is.

But I must defend the family when it comes to the refusal to celebrate this wedding in public! The Casiraghis are in fact more or less private citizens without any royal title because their father wasnīt styled a prince, duke or something like that by Prince Rainier.
So I think it is their absolute right to shield their private sphere and we have no right of fairytale wedding pictures.
Remember that these public "putting-on-a-royal-show" is, even in royal houses, an invention of the 20th century and weddings or royal ceremonies in general took place behind palace doors. There were some commemorative items like postcards, newspaper specials etc. or a procession through the capital city by a foreign bride making her official entrance. But that was that.
To resume it briefly, we might have the feeling (through films, TV and now the internet) to have a right to be part of and witness these things, but I still think it makes a different if one is a royal prince having official public duties for the country or if your mother is a princess in a tiny cote dī Azur state while you are just a wealthy commoner!

Yes, that's her mother, Vera Rechulski. She manages to be very discreet, very little is known about her. She owns that flat in Rio where the Casiraghi's have been photographed many times. Spanish Vanity Fair says that she lives between Paris and NY and always made sure her children (Tatiana and her brother) stayed close to her brazilian origins, like for example, speaking portuguese fluently. They also describe her as very serious, that kind of mother who always keeps you on track, and she wants both her children to work

Thanks for this informations. I didn't follow the Casiraghis and Tatjana so often, but I searched some informations, photos, videos about Tatiana, I was now curious who is this girl, who is so important for Andrea Casiraghi. I am surprised a little bit, because she seems to be very shy and serious. Not so glamorous as the Casiraghis. But a very nice person.

He seems to have the same full lips P. Charlotte, P. Caroline and Charlotte have... Could it be he takes after the Grimaldi side of the family?!?!?

That's interesting as I've never seen any pictures of Tatiana doing anything but vacationing. I don't recall seeing/knowing anything about her brother but I would suppose he would have some involvement in the family business.

It would be interesting to know more about these 'down to earth people', and I wonder if other members have more than what I attach here:

So beautiful you couldnīt almost bear it... What is with the people's obssesion of beauty these days? I am mean the Casiraghis are perfectly normal people, normal looking, even their grandmother Grace was just normal looking. Why is looks so important to the people? I prefer someone really cute like Tatiana, Alexandra and Pauline over "the perfect looks" of the Casiraghis and Grace.
