The source is the 'people', the site which told that Prince Albert did not want to know the gender of the babies.this story was true. Do you remember?
Why the prince would not give an interview to this site people. and he is right to deny this false rumors . when the tabloïds will leave the couple quiet and living their life of couple with the babies ?
He gives us news about the babies Jacques and Gabriella and it is nice to have these news;
He gave the same interview to Paris Match saying that the babies are wonderfull that he gives the bottles

I just think that it is better to keep quiet because this could just fuel the rumours even more! the press is horrible

No, he is right to deny these rumours , he is angry to always to justify themselves. there was a break during the pregancy and the paparazzis did some photos of Charlene with the babies in a house and already they published false rumors. each time Charlene will spend holidays with the kids somewhere as Princess Grace did it in Paris, in Gstaadt without her husband, there will be rumours on their couple, it is unblievable. I hope that the couple will sue the tabloid 'Caras' Happilly Prince Albert gave an interview , princess Charlene gave an interview in off where they said they moved in a house near Monaco. the rumours did not spread a lot.even Hola said that they moved because there were works in the palace.

The Grimaldis have done several interviews for People magazine going back to Princess Grace. I think this interview is legit.

A very relaxed Charlene , La Turbie is the large village where there is Roc Agel, Her brother lives in this village with his family, her parents are living also here when they came to Monaco., Charlene is very often seen in the Streets of La Turbie.
Princess Grace was also very seen in La Turbie when she was in Roc Agel.

We already saw the first photo of Charlene in the Streets of La Turbie in a tabloid before the privat manifestation of her foundation, because her mother , her brother and her sister in law and son did notstay along moment near here and there was a little photo of Lynette and her sister in law at the aeroport of Nive in departure for South Africa on january 28th 2015. and the title of the tabloid was, Charlene of Monaco left by her family.


Charlène de Monaco «*abandonnée*» par ses parents ?


I don't find Charlene pale and very tired, she seems to be fine for a mother busy with twins.

I think I have to get used to Charlene's sporting attire after having seen her in glam dresses...

The Prince of Monaco has issued two condoleances:
- one to the King of Spain (in English): http://scontent-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hph...79&oe=55779863
- one to the Mrs Angela Merkel (in French): http://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.ne...f101834135aebd

Four strange things:

1)
French is the language of international diplomacy. Why is the King of Spain addressed in English (not his language) and is the Chancellor of Germany addressed in French (not her language)?

2)
Why the one condoleance sent to the head of state of Spain (King Felipe) and the other not to the head of state of Germany (President Joachim Gauck)?

3)
Why is the one condoleance sent to the head of the German Government (Mrs Angela Merkel) and the other not to the head of the Spanish Government (Mr Mariano Rajoy Brey)?

4)
Why does the Prince not sign with Albert like all Sovereigns do? His signature Albert, Prince de Monaco is the style for a junior Prince. The form of address "To His Majesty King Felipe of Spain" is also wrong, it is only used for abdicated monarchs. See King Juan Carlos - with Christian name- see King Albert, see Grand-Duc Jean. Felipe however is THE King, so the form of address should have been "To His Majesty The King of Spain".


Anyway, it is nice that the Prince of Monaco has sent his condoleances, the "handling" however can use some improvements.

I really can't speak for all the points made but I think Albert probably knows how to style himself in his own signature.

To day, it is not the moment to seek the little beast because there were to much deaths in this horrible accident nor to follow the protocole and Albert knows how to sign and contact the king of spain.


To day, Felipe made a speech in spanish before the palace of Elysée. On the photo Inside the Elysée, we saw a person who made the traduction between Felipe and president Holland, also Albert spoke in English to King Felipe.


There is now no matter the language , french is no more a diplomatic language , now the very important persons are speaking in french or in English.


Albert sent condoleances to the king Felipe and to Mrs Angela Markel as president Holland did it.
To morrow , president Holland will recieve Angela Merkel and mre Rajoy in France to visit the place where the plane crashed. He does receive MrGlauck.


Don't forget that we are all comonners and nothing else , we did not read any other condoleances of other Kings , Queens , or princes sovereign or head of states to compare


And I will repeat it is not the times of the critics but the times of prayers for all the families who lost a member of their family.


For me, it is well that prince Albert sent condoleances to the King of Spain and to Angela Merkel.


Who else in the monarchies? I would like to read the text of condoleances.

It is not a signature, it is typed text, most likely set by the secretariat of the Prince. This is however the least important of the remarkable questions which popped up from the two condoleances.

There is a special thread to deal with the tragedy and undoubtedly more tragedies will follow, and there have been other, recent tragedies like the shooting down of MH-17 above Ukraine with almost 193 Dutch) killed.



But in this thread about the Prince of Monaco, I was talking about his condoleances, issued by the palais princier:

- the one in English (to Spain), the other in French (to Germany)
Why? Pourquoi? Warum?

- the one to a head of state (Spain), the other not to a head of state (Germany)
Why? Pourquoi? Warum?

Imagine that a plane crashes with British and French citizens and Albert sends a condoleance to Queen Elizabeth II and to Premier Ministre M Manuel Valls, but not to M François Hollande, the Président de la République. That is equally weird... to me it comes over as an amateuristic mistake.



As this is a forum, I think that, aside of a new hairdo here and a new dress there, we can also talk about what we actually see, read, hear and think. And this is an official communiqué, no reason not to discuss it.

I think that prince Albert knows better than anybodes who are commoner how to speak to a head of states or to a king.


The comments are tied to the horrible accident and I will not say more, as I said , it is not the times to critic in respect of the families but the times of prayers.

I am sure the palace has a protocol official who knows how to address each country. They've been doing this for hundreds of years.

PA has been releasing statements in both French and English for the benefit of his citizens. eg. the birth of his children. I am sure the actual letters would be sent in German and Spanish; again according to international protocol.

I also agree that the Palace knows how to style their sovereign Prince in a typed signature.

So to see the practice of hundreds of years is no guarantee for a logical and correct handling of something simple but sad as condoleances. Also on other forums this is discussed and the mistakes have been remarked caused surprise and question marks too.



While King Felipe VI is fluent in French, and Prince Albert knows him personally, a condoleance in English is sent. To a country which has nothing to do with English language.



While Frau Angela Merkel is fluent in German and Russian and understands some English, a condoleance in French is sent. To a country which has nothing to do with French language.

French however is the lingua franca of the corps diplomatique. Then the condoleance in French to Frau Merkel (but why not to the president of all Germans, dr Joachim Gauck?) is correct but why then no French for the condoleance to King Felipe?



The condoleance to the King is sent to "King Felipe of Spain" and not to "The King of Spain" (which is the correct form). Okay, maybe the Prince wants to be "more personal" and address the King by his first name. Thagt is fince. But why then sent it to the Royal Palace, which has primarily a museal function, while King Felipe lives ánd works at La Zarzuela on the compound of El Pardo?



That is the same as sending me a personal message but address it to the headquarters of my company... No, the palais princier needs a good review of the communications department.
