I bet the family knew about the illegitimate kids all along. Even though we don't see them with the kids, I'd like to believe they have a relationship with jazmine and alex. Caroline and Steph seem to care very much about children in general. I hope this applied to their "illegitimate" niece and nephew.

The www.jazminfund.com website has been updated. new pics, complete with a woman from Fiji presenting her a bouquet of flowers, similar to what REAL princesses get. Seems like they changed the website a bit to make it more professional looking.

I think it's interesting that her visit is being put together (at least on the picture) to look as if it's a princess-like 'meet and greet' activity. At the very least it is left open to being interpreted that way -- not like she was on a plain internship or plain visit.

oh well. I guess she's in training to be a UN ambassador or something.

Which country is she representing? I mean, on whose behalf is she accepting the bouquet? Are they giving her flowers because they are nice and they think she's nice too?

I'm sure her mother is very pleased.

I also went to private school and there were many times throughout my time there that I missed a certain amount of classes due to travelling. My teachers gave me loads upon loads of homework while I was away.

Thankfully I was able to keep up my studies so when I returned I wasn't behind.

Rosana, I'm Cuban...I have heard that expression many times! And I agree that Caroline likes things done "correctly" and I believe that she might have even been mad for a bit. But when it comes down to it, family is family, blood is blood. I think after the shock passed and she calmed down, she might have actually welcomed Jazmin. (Also, Louis was born out of wedlock, but she didn't seem to be mad at Stephanie when he was born. There are some really cute pics on the forum that show Caro making funny faces at baby Louis )

Er, Caroline has her OWN past.
If I'm not mistaken, she had Alex not too long after she got married to Ernst.

The same happened with Andrea. It seems she would never have a child out of the marriage. I don´t give importance to these things,anyone makes with one´s life what one can or want, but maybe she thinks royals have to follow some rules; i´m sure she doesn´t like at all the fact that Albert has already two children, but has to swallow it and show a smile.

This is not just meant as a reply to you rather just an observation of all the posts re the relationships with the different children. Caroline & Stephs children are being raised by their mothers (legetimate Grimaldis) raised as & with the Grimaldi Family. Unlike Albert's illegetimate children where it seems the extent of one mother's relationship w/ Albert probably can be counted in hours? So it's unfortunate but this puts the children in a difficult position. Also the mother's can't seem to take themselves out of the equation as far as vists go that we know of? too weird-but very telling. I would think Albert would have some say about it & could have visitation rights without the mothers in tow? The relationship should be between him & the children (not the mothers). So yes I can see why it would be difficult.

There is honestly a difference between the children being the mans and the woman's in what you are debating here and I know this as fact by this happening in my own family. Unless you have been there you can't really understand sometimes.

well, the legitimacy of her kids was bought from the catholic church with big bucks by annulling two of her marriages(have you seen this happening for any John Doe? actually she is one of the few who got such a privilege in the history of the Catholic Church). I can only imagine how large the check they gave was. but something tells me that in the eyes of the true GOD, her $$$ have no value. the fact that she thinks her children are better than the others in the family is maybe to feed her ego, they could have been in camille, alexandre or Jazmin's situation if rainier wouldn't have pulled the strings.

While I understand the Caroline posts, let's try to stay on topic. We are heading off on a tangent!

Thank you!

Jazmin will probably always have a difficult time because of who her parents are and the choices they have made regarding her--both publicly and privately.

I just hope the girl is able to find something she really enjoys doing and is able to make a life from it without a lot of faldera.

Please note that I have deleted several posts relating to Caroline/Ernest/Chantal as well as Caroline's annulment. This thread is NOT the place to talk about those events.

so where does she live? what does she want to do with her life? how close is she with her dad? does she talk on the phone with him much?

I'm assuming she still lives in Southern California with her mom. As to what she wants to be.....we will probably never know until she gets the job. As to how close she is to her dad- probably won't know that either unless when she turns 30 she writes a tell all book.

Services for former President Gerald R. Ford, who died Tuesday evening at his home in Rancho Mirage’s Thunderbird Estates, will begin Friday and will continue through the next week. The Rev. Robert Certain, the family’s pastor, said Ford will lie in repose starting Friday afternoon at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, which Ford and his wife Betty attended for years.

Isn't this the very same school Jazmin attended in Palm Desert?

You are right. It seems the same school. I doubt there were two St Margaret schools in Palm Desert.
There is also recent article in the local paper that mentioned Jazmin

I read the bio on Prince Albert on the web it said that Jazmin could not be in line to the throne not only because she was born illegitmate but because the mother Tamara Rotolo was still legally married to another man so even if Albert were to marry Tamara their daughter Jazmin would not be in line to the throne of Monaco period.
