Talk about kudos.
Indeed. From what I've read in Spanish mags, Telma Ortiz, the Princess of Asturias' sister, has and is dating a Belgian gentleman. One of the magazines has a photo taken of her in the park kissing this Belgian man.

How did this rumor about Albert and Telma come about? If Telma has a boyfriend....... maybe Felipe or Letizia tried to set them up but things didn't work out so she is off dating other guys and he is over her, and onto the next?

It seems to have come from a German tabloid where it was picked up by a German pop show. Similar to the US show Entertainment Tonight in media 'culture' fluffy-ish.

Most rags outside France rarely report on Albert anymore and the tv shows rarer still since the lawsuit. Even though 'the kid' is confirmed as his, no one wants to take a chance with news that may be wrong. Even Entertainment Tonight and other such US shows and papers waited until after the Palace confirmed paternity before reporting.

Yes, very few news sources in America keep up with PA or anyone in the Monoco royal family. Where as, the british are a whole nother story. I think it is, in part, due to the language difference. But also because America has SO many celebrities we really do not even need royalty.

I also think many many in the US could care less about PA or anyone else in Monoco. The tiny country has very little if any real impact on foreign affairs. I laughed my butt off when I heard PA had signed the Kyoto environmental agreement and that was going to "put pressue on other countries". I promise the entire world in this post that no president of the United States is going to feel in any way pressured by PA. And I doubt seriously few world leaders would either. I know Monoco is worth 100 Billion dollars and some very wealthy people reside there but the US is worth Trillions and Trillions. As is the UK, China, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and many others.

I also saw a story on Entertainment Tonight about NC allegations when they came out. I do not think they ran any follow up story when he claimed the child. I do not think they fear law suits, I think he lacks appeal and that is why he is not covered more in the US. IMO

How much do you think that would change if he began to seriously date an American?

I want to elaborate, it would change in a flash! All the tabloids, magazines and news media would discuss this relationship forever and a day! Grace Kelly was admired for marrying a prince. Americans could not stop talking about this fairy tale marriage. Even present, there are numerous novels about her marriage to PR.



PA visits America often and suppose he fell in love with an American female and decided to marry her, it would be the talk of the town… There would be so much press coverage; it would get on your nerves…



Just my opinion… :)

Since Albert is such a lovely person and most of the celebrities that are worshipped in the US are so icky, I'm not sure whether to hope he does marry (or at least date seriously) an American gal.

While it would be neat to see all the old Grace&Rainier coverage rehashed again for comparison, I'm sure by the tenth story in two days on EVERY show (not even 'news' shows can get away with not having an entertainment segment nowadays), I might be yelling at the tv and wishing Prince Harry would do something foolish again just for a change of subject!

But then if it turns out he's squiring Lady M or myself about, all bets are off. I would want the media to completely go away!

None. George Bush flipped off the UN and went to war in Iraq. (I do not want to disucss GB or the war, this is not the place.) Dating an American might get him a few minutes on Entertainment Tonight but it certainly would not gain him any political points.

When Rainer married Grace neither was carrying around the kind of personal baggage PA is. (Likely because they were a lot younger) It doesn't help him any that NC is talking and has outted herself as a dummy. He dated her (or maybe just slept with her) for five years and she apparently doesn't know who Mugabe is....That is VERY bad (ignorant) when your from Africa....Or for that matter, any country. PA doesn't need to date anyone, he needs to marry. Even in the military they prefer that officers are married because it lends to their personal support group and stability. A solid marriage is also a good indication of how a person is at maintaining long term relationships on all kinds of levels. This is an important skill for a leader.

I think the changes would be along the same line as it was when Lisa Halaby married Jordanian royalty. Larry King Live would do interviews from time to time, but for the most part, their marriage would fade out of popular public subject matter. Of course, media coverage could be changed if the PR people from Monaco wanted it done. I do think American tourism would increase in Monaco.

Ladies! Here's an opportunity to see Prince Albert:)


Swarovski Fashion Rocks for The Prince's Trust

Jerry Hall, world-renowned model turned West End star, will host this year's most star-studded fusion of fashion and rock: Swarovski Fashion Rocks for The Prince's Trust, in the presence of HSH Prince Albert ll of Monaco, October 17th at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.


Rock immortals Bon Jovi will star in the show, as will the biggest selling female artist of all time, Mariah Carey. Other artists announced include Kasabian, voted second best band in the world by NME, Roisin Murphy, Moloko's star vocalist turned solo artist, and Jamie Cullum, the UK's biggest ever selling jazz artist.

These artists will provide electrifying performances, paired with their favourite designers: Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and Vivienne Westwood. The event will be televised by Channel 4.

For 2005, Swarovski Fashion Rocks for The Prince's Trust will have more to offer including guest appearances by Sharon and Kelly Osbourne. Not only will the guests enjoy an eclectic mix of fashion and music, they will also experience a weekend of sensational parties whether on board private luxury yachts or dancing the night away in the infamous Jimmyz nightclub. The show will begin with a champagne reception and culminate in an exclusive dinner, within the Grimaldi Forum, as the glamorous finale.

Some of which was created by PA himself.

Oh and I want to comment about PA, his future wife, Nicole, Eric Alexandre and any new children getting together for BBQ's. If I was the new wife, Eric could come whenever, but I wouldn't let that woman anywhere near my husband. Primarily because she cannot be trusted to keep her mouth shut. Who's to say she's not going to do an interview and say all kinds of horrible stuff. IMO.

Eric, yes, anytime, anywhere. NC NO WAy.
I'm with you on that totally! And I wouldn't care about anything that was said on the matter either!

I hope PA marries someone who is a strong woman!

I slightly disagree. If PA marries a 'normal' American, yes, there will be an initial furor that will ebb and only flow when they have children or visit the US.
But if he marries some sort of celebrity (a very loose term indeed these days), it would behoove the entertainment reporters to keep after them as the US has no real royalty (Kennedys aside) and a genuine American (albeit Monaquese) Princess would be big ratings.

Just look at Grace. If Rainier had married Ms. Bobbie Jo Sayer from Middle Town, there wouldn't haven't been anywhere near the attention they and Monaco received because Grace was a Movie Star. Hollywood Royalty.

However, I personally think Albert has dated enough famous gals to realize he might actually be better off with a Bobbie Jo who just wants a quiet life than someone looking to be at every event and on every magazine and tv show.

Princess Grace Foundation Announces 2005 Award Winners

Mikhail Baryshnikov to Be Honored

NEW YORK, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Trustees of the Princess
Grace Foundation, USA and its Chairman, Hon. John F. Lehman, announced today the winners of the 2005 Princess Grace Awards. The Awards for Theater, Dance and Film, first instituted in 1984, are named in honor of Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, who helped aspiring artists pursue their goals throughout Her lifetime.

This year's Gala will be hosted by CNN's Larry King, October 26 at
Manhattan's Cipriani. Baryshnikov has been chosen as the inaugural recipient
of the Prince Rainier III Award in honor of his outstanding contribution to
the arts. "Establishing an ongoing commemoration to HSH Prince Rainier III
was an important charge based on one overriding principal: to support and
enhance the work Prince Rainier started to honor his wife," says Lehman.
HSH Prince Albert of Monaco, the Foundation's Vice Chairman will preside
over the Awards Gala.

The Foundation, a public charity formed after the death of Princess Grace
in 1982, awards grants, scholarships, apprenticeships and fellowships to
assist artists with their training.
This year also marks the addition of a new Choreography Fellowship to
recognize the nation's most promising young practicing choreographers.

I finally got some "non-news" let explain myself, I was able to talk to one of the old ladies of Monaco (she was in the "in" crowd when P Grace was alive) she said that the issue with NC is a non-issue, he made good in the promise of caring for the child and he is doing so. She was more alert regarding the many changes that PAII has/will make in the gov structure. He has said out with old, in the the new, so the speculation is going as to who will stay and who will not (which to the members of this forum including myself don't give a dime). I tried to get more info but, it seems that between PR death and all this crap of NC the allure of Monaco has waned down, even in this forum all you see "new" is old photos and clips. The rumor mill keeps churning about the other "children" PA might have, (when I asked her about the other "possible children" she gave me one of those answers to be put in a book- "in the Kingdom of Bastardhood there is a lot of pretenders").

Which brings me to think in another possilbility: what will happen if PA when and if decides to marry, he does marry a divorce mother?
Wow, I would love to have tickets to that show .

I don't see his having a problem marrying a divorcee provided she wasn't married within the Catholic Church in which case the marriage would need to be annulled. Albert said he knew of no other claims that could be true and again I take that to mean there are no other children he could have fathered. Generally that would mean he used protection.
