Kittencrews: WOW... I always thought she was left handed... I wonder why she almost always wears her watch on that hand....Wonderful pictures Montecarlo... whereever did you get them!?!?

Monte Carlo: Maybe she feels comfortable with it on the right hand. Anyway, a good friend of mine gave me those pictures. Plus, he gave me a link to a new photo agency. Unfortunately, sometimes it's hard to access the website. You can't enlarge any of the pictures, I mean I've tried every trick in the book, and nothing works.

King Christian: Maybe she's ambi-dexterous ....... can write either left or right handed!

Monte Carlo: That seems like a rare gift to have.

Jacintha: Wish somebody will help explain how does the monarchy in monaco works? are the casiraghis prince/princess? are the heir/heiress to the throne? I'm so confused..

Monte Carlo: Monaco is a small principality that's ruled by the House of Grimaldi. There are no kings nor queens just princes and princesses. The sovereign prince of Monaco is the sole ruler. His/Her direct descendants are heirs to throne. If you would like to know more about Monaco visit: http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monaco

No, the Casiraghi's are not royals because their father, Stefano, was a commoner. You see, royal titles are normally given from the paternal side and not the maternal. If Stefano Casiraghi had a royal title then, his children would have been given one also. Occasionally, the press would wrongfully refer to them as royals.

Josefine: Are there any event soon with the whole family?

Monte Carlo: Caroline and her children often spend New Years in Lamu, Kenya. So, there should be some new pictures soon!

Monte Carlo: Charlotte's been falling off her horse ALOT this year. I don't think she takes it as seriously as her best friend Valentine.

Bubbette: Yikes Alexandria looks like her father!

Monte Carlo: She does doesn't she? Well, Caroline wasn't as cute as Stephanie when they were little, and now look. Caroline looks much more beautiful than her little sister. I love Stephanie but, lately Caroline seems to be beating her in the looks department. I think with time, Alexandra will be just as beautiful as her mother but, not as beautiful as Charlotte.

hey ... I wear my watch on my left hand and am right-handed. I thought it was tradition to wear the watch on the left hand. (maybe that is why I take a second look at people who wear their watch on the right hand).

The reason the head of Monaco is a prince and not a king, is because of one or more international treaties. Sean.~ I am sure would be definitive about the how and so on.

I am sure there are also treaties with France, in fact I know there are, which impact on the taxation aspects, citizenship, and I think have a bearing on recognized succession.

I hope she wasn't hurt with that fall. She's probably fallen before and can bounce back easily. But still. That must have hurt.

Well I wear my watch on my right hand just because it is more comfortable for writing left handly (is that a word)? I write, eat, and things like that with my left hand and play sports right handed... I know I'm strange

I think she should cut her hair shorter and colour it darker but if she like it better that way she does... :flower:

Does anybody know what kind of person she is in school?? Is she top of her class or what???

I have read somewhere that Charlotte fell of her horse at some event and was unconscious for a while. Maybe this was the event? She seem to be unconscious in the photo. Too bad it's so small, and hard to make the details.

It is guessed that Charlotte is between 5'4" and 5'6", however, I am not sure how much she weighs. :)

Since the year 2000, people have been saying she's 5'4''. Do you guys sincerely think she hasn't grown at all since then? She was 14 in 2000.

People grow up until their twenties, that I know as a fact. You sometimes hear that people suppose the growth stops when you get your period, but that is not the case. B)

I think she has grown up, I don't even have to look to the age factor, I just look at the pics and she seems to have grown up.
I think you stop growing aproximatly 2 years after getting your period, so on girls it can depend on that, but they usually stop growing at the age charlotte is now, (17) and boys around 19.
I'm sure she is now taller than the 1.65cm reported in 2000...

I also said between 5'4" and 5'6" not just 5'4". :) I said between because I do not know for certain. Also, she doesn't look as tall as Caroline and Caroline is supposedly between 5'6" and 5'8".

Yes, Charlotte isn't as tall as Caroline, I don't think she's going to reach her height, because usually girls have stopped growing by 17. I haven't grown much since I was 15 (which isn't saying much I'm 5'5").

Not to get from the forum topic but does any know how tall Ernst is??? On the video of Caroline UNESCO ceremony everyone in the audience is standing and Ernst is towering over a lot of them!!!
