Also, I think it's too early to tell what decision Andrea will make - he has plenty of time to finish school, mature, get married, have a family, etc - he may find, once he's grown out of partying, social issues and ruling Monaco will seem more important; now, maybe not so much. His grandfather had to become ruler and produce heirs at a young age (in his 20s, I believe), or risk losing Monaco. But Prince Albert had 20 years more than his father to experience life before he was made ruler. Even if Princess Caroline decides not to step aside, Andrea has plenty of time to experience life before he's expected to rule Monaco. So, maybe for now, he doesn't feel the pressure to engage, politically, until he's asked.
You're probably right. I just wondered about his recent appearances. I hope for Monaco's sake (and his) that Andrea does have the time to mature before asked to rule.

REPLY: I don't know if you're still in college, or graduated, but I know at 20-something I was soooo not ready for marriage (right away), kids, etc - I got a job right away, but traveled w/friends and goofed off before settling down. Can you imagine the (future) burden of running a Principality looming over you ?! I would go nuts partying now, too, if I were in their position - have all the fun you can now because 20 yrs from now (or so), there will be too much to do, oversee, etc to be concerned with the latest night club.....it's fun to reminisce with my old college roomate and friends, however, about how much freedom we had and how it's ALL changed! Hopefully, Andrea, Pierre, and Charlotte will be able to do the same for a while and won't have to worry about taking over ruling Monaco for many years to come.

Well, I don't think Albert would abdicate soon.

Thanks a lot for the pics, Thrbc.
It's funny, but I think that Pierre has his mother's eyes !

I think prince Albert can decide that Pierre is better for the job and adopt him as his son. So he can jump all the others and become heir to the throne. He has time to learn and seems to be more similar in caracther to Albert.

I think we could make up a seperate thread about the discussion on Albert adopting any of Caroline's or Stephanie's son/s . I think there may be some need to think about this. Albert will have a heir - wheather it will be his own son (or daughter) or Andrea, Pierre, Louis or one of his sisters girls. There's enough choice and I don't think one is better than he other, but we could talk about it anyhow.

Here's the thread : Who's to succeed Albert?

Just a little reminder: under the new Constitution (and in all recent interviews Albert said he doesn't want or feel the need to emend it) the Sovereign cannot adopt an heir; the Succession line is fixed and it is Caroline, Andrea, Pierre, Charlotte, Alex, Steph, Louis, Pauline (Camille is excluded as her parents never married, and I don't think this rule will ever change or Alexandre would inherit the throne, an hypothesis Al has repetedly ruled out)...Of course Albert can change again the Constitution if he thinks it necessary, but he cannot just choose one of his sisters or nephew as an heir.

Kisses

Many people thought Rainier was going to adopt Caroline's children and it never happened. It is better for them if Albert has his own children, so nobody would discuss about who will be the chosen one.

He looks a bit like Jude Law with this haircut.

I think a lot of you make good points about Pierre and Andrea and their future. The "coming out" idea makes sense. But I also think Pierre is making a personal choice to be close to his uncle in the first year of the new reign. He wants to be supportive and helpful to the uncle who has always shown him great respect and love. :)

P.S. I like the way the tux fits Pierre. I didn't like his new haircut at first, but it's growing on me. It looks nice in black tie. He looks so mature and handsome.

I'm a guy, but even I have to agree that Pierre looks miles better with his hair short.

Doesn't he look handsome and mature - MUCH prefer the shorter hair. In some shots, he does look like Jude Law (I agree w/those that posted that observation).

Yes.... I am seeing that now. He looks like one of those really dashing 1950's movie stars, like Cary Grant, Spencer Tracey. Very elegant, if a guy can be elegant. If so, he is. The black tie look definitely flatters him. Of course, every look flatters Pierre in my opinion. Long hair, short hair, shirt, no shirt! :p
