FAMILY TRAGEDY

Eight years after Charlotte's grandmother, American actress-turned-Monegasque royal Princess Grace, died in car crash, the Grimaldi family once again suffered a tragic loss.

In 1990, Stefano – dad to six-year-old Andrea, four-year-old Charlotte and Pierre, three – was killed in a speedboat accident during a world championship trial race off the coast of Monaco. Handsome and charismatic, Stefano, the 30-year-old son of a wealthy Italian industrialist, had begun racing in 1984, winning the world title just five years later.

After her husband's death, his widow Caroline settled, along with her children, in the French village of Saint Remy de Provence. "For personal reasons she wanted to move away from the gossip and hoopla of Monaco," said her brother Prince Albert in 1997. "But she's here (in Monaco) whenever she's needed."

Any promise of a family fairy tale came to an end with Stefano's death in 1990

The loss came just eight years after Charlotte's grandmother, Princess Grace, was killed in a car crash

GENERATIONS OF BEAUTY

One legacy Charlotte's dashing young father left her – and her heart-throb siblings, Andrea and Pierre, for that matter – was his Italian good looks. And the radiance of her American film star grandmother has also carried through the generations.

"No one has failed to spot the incredible resemblance between Charlotte and Caroline when she was her daughter's age," says one royal style watcher. Another opines: "Charlotte is outstandingly attractive in that dark Mediterranean way… She is a sweet girl with stunning looks who remains very down to earth."

The press caught on early that Charlotte would take after her gorgeous mother and grandmother. She was just five years old when newspaper headlines trumpeted her as "Princess Charming" and heralded "the next generation of Grimaldi beauties".

Caroline certainly seems to have passed her photogenic traits on to her daughter

The similarities between a young Caroline - seen with her mum - and her own teenage daughter, have not gone unnoticed

Elder brother Andrea has also earned himself a reputation as a pin-up

TEEN ICON

As a toddler Charlotte was known as a frequent visitor to high end boutiques perusing the latest fashions alongside her mum. And she was an eight-year-old schoolgirl when Chanel designer and family friend Karl Lagerfeld pronounced: "She makes me think of Brigitte Bardot."

By the time she had reached the age of 15, Charlotte was already a budding fashion icon and international teen pin-up. But while other girls her age flocked to imitate the skimpy tops and low-slung jeans of Britney Spears, Charlotte highlighted her model looks with an ultra chic wardrobe.

"She is a princess and yet she's also cool," said celeb watcher Nathalie Dupuys from Elle magazine. "She's fantastically beautiful, so she can get away with just about anything. But although she always wears the latest thing, her look never lapses into vulgarity. She wouldn’t just wear trainers with a crop top, showing off her belly button."

By the time she reached her mid-teens, a style-conscious Charlotte was already setting fashion trends

Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld recognised her charisma early on, and compared her to a youthful Brigitte Bardot

And her blossoming beauty made her a favourite for the press around the world

PASSIONS

For a little girl with everything – her paternal grandparents even presented her with a $9-million island off Sardinia for her fifth birthday – it was only a matter of time before she had the world in the palm of her hands.

And Charlotte, who seems to have had neither an awkward age nor a "wild child" phase, has made the most of her youth. Always discreet, her public romances are few and far between, though reports say she 's been known to flirt with Andrea's pals David Alexis, the son of a French businessman, and Hubertus Herring-Frankensdorf, a wealthy Austrian business student.

The multi-lingual teenager – she speaks French, Italian and English as well as a little German – counts playing piano and socialising with her best friend Valentine Pozzo di Borgo among her pastimes. Her passions include being big sister to her goddaughter and half-sibling Alexandra, whose dad is Prince Ernst of Hanover, and of course, she's also famed for her skills in equestrian pursuits. "She knows how to hold herself, how to sit properly," said a friend. "She has class – like her grandmother."

Equestrian pursuits are among Charlotte's true passions

Now that she's blooming into a beautiful young woman, royal watchers are keeping an eye on her developing friendships with male pals

But it is her best friend Valentine Pozzo di Borgo that Charlotte is inseparable from

"She has class – like her grandmother," says a family friend

For those of you who can read Italian, there's another big Charlotte article in the latest issue of "Chi" magazine.
According to it Charlotte might come out at the next Red Cross Ball on the 6th of August.
The rest of the article is sort of hagiographic bio of "la Signorina Casiraghi" accompanied by old pics.

Ciao,

Tosca

Salutatemi la vostra bellissima città!

Bacioni.

Hola article about Charlotte's birthday party:

28 JULIO 2004
Mónaco, tradicional sede del glamour y la elegancia, recuperará el próximo fin de semana el esplendor de sus años dorados con motivo de la celebración del 18º cumpleaños de Carlota Casiraghi, heredera de una saga de bellas princesas que han conquistado al mundo.

Será el gran debut social de esta princesa de cuento, increíblemente hermosa y encaminada hacia un destino excepcional. Carlota podría haber esperado aún algunos años más para su presentación en sociedad, pero, al igual que sus antecesoras, ella también ha optado por crecer y vivir deprisa. Consumir el tiempo con urgencia para ser mayor cuanto antes. Por ello, este aniversario, el de su mayoría de edad, es, por encima de otros, especial y lo celebrará, asimismo, de manera extraordinaria con cuatro eventos muy señalados:


Viernes 30. La propia Carlota se ha encargado de organizar una fiesta para sus amigos en Stars and Bar, un local de moda del puerto de Montecarlo. Sus más íntimos –Valentine Pozzo di Borgo, Thierry Rozier, actual entrenador de Carlota; Hubertus Herring-Frankensdorf y Felix, un joven al que conoció durante las vacaciones y con el que se dice que ha congeniado rápidamente– no faltarán a la cita y todos juntos disfrutarán de una noche mágica.


Sábado 31. Andrea y Pierre Casiraghi han preparado para su hermana un divertido almuerzo en la playa. Ya, por la noche, Carlota asistirá a la gran fiesta de su puesta de largo. La Vigie, la mansión elegida entre un magnífico patrimonio inmobiliario para celebrar el gran acontecimiento, y en la que Carolina de Mónaco y Ernesto de Hannover llevaron a cabo, con tal motivo, varias reformas recientemente, ya está preparada.


Domingo 1. Los Grimaldi se reunirán para celebrar un gran desayuno en Palacio.

Todas las celebraciones, según subraya con firmeza el comunicado oficial del Palacio Grimaldi, serán “absolutamente privadas”. De manera que el debut oficial en sociedad de Carlota Casiraghi no se producirá hasta unos días después, el próximo 6 de agosto, durante la tradicional Gala de la Cruz Roja.




Anything we didn't know appart that she has met a boy called Félix with whom she seems to get along and all the parties are going to be absolutely private as the Grimaldi Palace has officialy said. Charlotte is also going to attend the Red Cross Gala ball on August 6. This is going to be her official debutant ball since the party in La Vigie is going to be private.

Monaco's newest glamour girl, Charlotte Casiraghi, is set to ring in her 18th birthday in style this weekend with three days of lavish celebrations in Monte Carlo.

Festivities kick off on Friday with a private party organised by Charlotte herself at the Stars 'N' Bars restaurant, whose past clients include Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson and Rod Stewart, overlooking the Port de Monaco. Her closest pals, including best friend Valentine Pozzo di Borgo and equestrian trainer Thierry Rozier, are expected to attend.

On Saturday, Charlotte's brothers, Andrea and Pierre, have reportedly planned a beachside brunch for the young beauty to continue the celebrations. But it is the night's spectacular gala which is the centrepiece of the weekend.

The birthday soiree will be held at Prince Rainier's La Vigie, one of the most prestigious villas on the Riviera. The historic 40-room mansion, famed for its panoramic views of the sea, was apparently handpicked by Charlotte's mum, Princess Caroline, for the occasion. Previous guests at La Vigie, restored by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld during the 1990s, have included Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, who stayed there while attending the Monaco Grand Prix this year.

Sunday will see the whirlwind weekend wind down, with a private Grimaldi family breakfast at the royal palace. And August 6, three days after her 18th birthday, Charlotte will make her official society debut at the traditional Red Cross Ball.

Yeah it would be cool if someone could post them here From what I could see in the small pics, Charlotte is wearing a black bikini in the beach and at the party she's wearing this silver/grey dress. I think Valentine is the girl with the white skirt.
