Does anyone know if the Grimaldis, and the Casi trio, are invited for William and Kate's wedding?

Oh, i think it will hardly happen Palomaise. First of all, P. Caroline is not an official representative figure of the principality ( at least, not anymore, now that Ms. Wittstock is H.S.H.'s fiancée ); second, she's separated from her husband, wich leaves her in a very difficult position where diplomatic arrangements and official events are concerned. Finally, as to the Casiraghi Trio... why should they be invited? They have no official duties in the principality, they are just second row figures ( remember they're Casiraghi, not Grimaldi ), and last, but not least, they're not anyway related to the bride and groom. So i guess, we'll have to content ourselves with Ms. Wittstock's attendance...

Indeed, you're right. But I thought we might see Charlotte. I mean, Alex's father, if I'm not mistaken, is said to have connections with the British royal family. So I thought we'd see her there, perhaps. But I think you're right. We'll have to be content with Charlene.

I can't wait for Albert and Charlene's wedding. I'm sure both Caroline and Charlotte will wear something Chanel or Valentino or whatever designer house they choose. The British wedding will be much more tame. I mean, it's Glamour vs. Proprierty. Which to pick?

I have the feeling they'll go with the latter. Btw, does anyone know whom Kate's getting the dress from? It was said it'd be Westwood but she denied that.

If I could choose a prince to marry , between William and Albert, I would definitely pick Albert.
Monaco is glamour,fashion,the sun of French riviera............ it appeals me so much more than the dull British monarchy!

Vera, I agree, in Monaco you have more room to misbehave. With your sisters-in-law paving the way, the public is most likely to tolerate pics of you dancing the night away or dressing sexily. In England, the media will crucify you immediately. And the Monegasques can be depended on to defend you regardless of your antics (in Monaco, at least).

Albert also is wealthier than the Queen herself. The Grimaldis can spend their wealth without the public being too critical of their lifestyle because of their tax-free status vs in England where the Royal Family's spending habits and lifestyle are always seen in the light of the political and economic climate.

And also, with Albert, I think you are more likely to have more good-looking kids. Beauty is all relative, but I think I'm not alone in saying that the Grimaldis are perhaps the most good-looking royal family.

Oh dear Vera, but the man aged so ungracefully, the man grew so bold ( ok, P. william will grow bold to ), he became the dullest, grayest, uninteresting male specimen of the european monarchy ( once again, ok, apart from princes Charles and Andrew ). He's the absolute opposite of that glamorous Monaco you dream of. At least, William still keeps his freshness...

Let's get back on topic.

Posts about the fashions of Charlotte and Caroline, the British monarchy, etc are off topic and will be deleted without notice.

I completely 100% agree! There seems to be more personal freedom, and unlimited amounts of $$ to boot!

The Riviera is beautiful beautiful beautiful!

Charlotte can often be found at fashion shows/mixing with designers etc, & it is a world that is full of young women who are size 0, so I am not surprised that she has gradually assimilated a similar "look".
BINGO!! Charlotte's freaky thinness coincides with her hanging out in Paris and London with runway models like Kate Moss. She might be subconsciously trying to "keep up" with these women and their fashionable but ghastly concentration camp look.

It's quite a shame because Charlotte is more beautiful than ANY of them...she should not try to emulate that look!

Ii think it's her riding and jogging. She went from sitting at a desk all day to doing athletics all day.

I think that's it too. Plus Charlotte said it herself in an interview that she's always been too much of a perfectionist, so I'm pretty sure she's quite dedicated and puts a lot of effort into it. And as far as I know Charlotte's always been surrounded by those kind of people. Even when she was a lot younger. She was always a bit exposed due to her condition. She's a grown woman now and possibly a lot more mature than she was a few years back. I personally tend to agree with Fan of Monaco.

All I know for sure is that I look at photos of Charlotte now and she seems to lack a certain youthful freshness. I remember photos of her when Rainier was alive when she would appear on the balcony of the Palace with her brothers, and again as recently as Prince Albert's installation Mass. She seemed not only young and beautiful, but happy.

I know that you can perhaps put it down to the fact that she is maturing into young womanhood but even Caroline at the height of her club crawling with Junot never appeared jaded, imo.

Charlotte, I am very sad to say, does indeed seem bored and jaded and for me it appears to coincide with the arrival in her life of Alex and his crowd.

I very much hope I am wrong. She has the right to select her own friends and the type of life style that makes HER happy.
