As to whether the family is approachable, well you can bump into Steph as she walks her dog in the park or when she goes out. But I don't think she would be too comfortable if you'd chat her up as if she was anyone you knew well ( at least she never gave me the impression. although she would surely be polite if you did. IT is just not sth I would think of doing in passing her) I used to see Albert and Steph often when I used to go out nightclubbing a few years back, but they tend to stick with their own crowd, so unless you know one of them you wouldn't have a natural encounter with them. It is either on official occasions if you are invited that you meet them, but again that usually doesn't go beyond exchange of politenesses and rarely a conversation. Unless you knew them from other occasions. That's usually what it is like. So mainly they stay among the people they know or those that get introduced to them for a specific reason. And I don't really remember seeing Albert on a stroll through his principality. He should do that sometimes. he might learn sth.
Many many thanks Paca for all these information. I have question for the other members of the family. I do not kow for how many years you have been living t here. but what about Caroline before Stefano's death? I know that she used to live in Clos Saint Pierre, she was going out walking with her babies, was she easily approachable?
And what about now, when she is there with E.A??
And what about the Casiraghis?
I do not ask about Stephanie's children they are very young, they should be protected.
Neither for late Prince Rainier, he should have been unapproachable.
Thanks

The other day I was watching a short coverage for the Amade gala, which included some pitures of Prince Albert as a blood donor.
Well, paca, I couldn't help recalling some of your posts...

The blonde middle-aged, and over , lady with a bunch of flowers in her hand, standing on Albert's left side in the 3rd pic, is the editor of DIVA mag. She represents Italy for Les Enfant de Frankie. She was the ex- CHI mag editor.
However this week's DIVA carries only a close up of Albert's with no girls by his side.

Is the tall brunette the Tascha everybody talks about? I don't think she is very attractive at all. Whoever she is, she is really eyeing Albert up in the first picture. Not very subtle.

At first, I mistook her for Tasha as well, but she looks younger than Tasha is.

I think that the brunette tall woman is Tasha. On the other forum I saw more and larger pics of her with Albert and it looks like it's her. Her hair is little darker and eyebrows are thinner than years ago and she indeed looks younger in some pics. Tasha had a boyfiend recently but now she is hanging around prince Albert again. Next princess wannabe?

Botox can do amazing things to get rid of the wrinkles. And to be honest, she looks like she applied makeup like spackle.

I know there are quite a few ladies out there who have problems with Albert's dating and love of beautiful women but I have to say with his paunch and semi bald head I think he is spunky. He is a firm favourite of mine.

just had to get it off my chest!

A few days ago , on 12/13/06 prince Albert met with ambassador of the USA in the princely palace.
American embassy is one of the seven embassies in Monaco.

An interesting article:

A Kalorama Embassy Worthy of a Prince

We're always hearing rumors that some jet-setting celeb is house hunting in Kalorama -- and finally, it's true! None other than Prince Albert of Monaco zipped into town last month to handpick the historic home that will be his country's first embassy in the United States.

The Kalorama neighborhood is lovely. I wonder how come now PA decides to spend all the money to buy and staff an embassy if they've done without it for so many years? Maybe he is looking to expand business ties?
