they were taken by m lucie the court photographer. I haven't seen any in the paper yet (maybe today or tomorrow). We were not allowed to take any (didn't bring mine anyway, since I thought it was going to be like that). PA gave some autographs though. (I'm not sure if it was only the kids asking )

Oh, my, Paca...thank you for the photos, I think...illusions are getting shattered. :(

I was going to say that the camera adds 10 lbs but in one photo where PA is leaving the water it doesn't seem to be the camera that is the problem! And then again in the group shot on the beach HSH is obviously sucking in.

He needs a good woman; unfortunately not me I love to cook & bake.

P.S. I'm new to the site -- I really enjoy all of your observations. How do you get invited to all of the official functions? Do you work at the Palace? Absolutely fascinating for this American...

At least he looks much better topless than in his way-too-small tuxedo.

Yes, he is definetely working on whale size. I guess he should rethink having English breakfast in the morning (as he stated in one interview). I still hope he did't misunderstand fitting his fathers shoes as fitting his fathers suits.

As to me being present at official functions, that is only the case when they take place in the cathedral, meaning in regular years twice. exceptionally we got invited to the palace (btw I saw a pic, though not in the paper - one could hardly recognize the faces, so in the paper it probaly would have made a big black and white blurr).
I do not work there though one of my older Monegasques friends used to work there as a secretary and is still very well known in the palace.

BTW on the first group picture, if I am not mistaken, on PAs left you can see Rainiers and Stephs kinesitherapist/osteopath. And I think in the back of the second is his MD brother, who should give PA some advise on how to get in shape, because that guy at his age has the body of a greek god.

Guess I am voting now for PA marrying a nutrionist who will get him back into shape and keep him at it. Let's hope we will see PA next year with -20kg.

PS the camera did not add extra pounds, but it did add extra wrinkles. His face looks much younger and smoother than on the pic in the bathrobe.

He ought to be able to afford liposuction and all sorts of operations to remove the fat if he likes. I think he keeps the belly to fight off any women who might be interested. This way he can say "See, noone wants me now, I am so fat!!!! :( I'll die all alone!!" :(

so first he got rid of all his hair, then he puts on so much fat that people think a whale stranded in Monaco and all this to scare off unworthy women to be able to feel sorry for himself? A notice on the palace wall would have been sufficient. Nah, I think on his last trip to Norway he fell in love with an orca and all his preps for the arctic, getting rid of his hair, putting on some protective weight are just attempts to make her love him back. She probably let him know that she had no intention of spending her life with a skinny lad like him and if he didn't put on a few xtra tons, he could just about forget it.

We are nasty!!! There are people here who love him so much that we have to say something nice. Our darling prince still has the same dashing smile and good looks no matter what his lovely shape is. And this way he can find a woman with a free shape without her looking fat beside him.

Yes, Donna! I am so sick of "Manorexic" males!! Metrosexual males can be consumed by their appearance and lose the natural charm that PA has...These males watch every calorie and turn down home baked cookies....
It's so nice to see a passionate male for a change!

I like that.

BTW Whales are one of my favorite species.

And i like PA too, though at the moment I am a bit furious with him for letting the cityhall vote for a project that will destroy almost a third of the only childfriendly playground in MOnaco in order to get 40 meger creche places, whic were originally supposed to be integrated in a different project (the have planned for years to get at this marvellous site (great seaview and palace view, real estate are lusting after this site) and it is just a pretext to finally get rid of the last reserve for children where they can actually built sandcastles.(a few years ago they wanted to built sth there and reserve an underground area for cildren with videogames - I'm srprised they haven't figured out yet how to deep freeze the tods and wake them when they are adults and ready to enter the work force, preferably realestate or hotel business) So much about childrens rights. The city pays people to clean up after the dogs, but spending money on kids is apperently not en vogue.
