The fact that the Hock lawyers always seem so front-and-center whenever there is media around and making every effort to ridicule Pierre makes me think that they don't have much of a case and they know it. As for the latest load about being on disability for a month ... (sigh) ... every time I hear outrage over this I am reminded of why the United States will never ever be able to have a national healthcare system. When you have a national healthcare system it is for everyone, whether you are rich or poor, and organizing care for entire populations can only be done if there are strict guidelines that apply to everyone even if in individual cases it seems ridiculous, that is just the price you pay of having a system where everyone is looked after in the same way. The stuff about Pierre being 'qualified' for disability for a month does not mean he was actually given compensation, it does not mean he was laid up for a month, it just means that according to the rules in place, for the injuries he had, he was entitled to that by the government. It's not near as outrageous as it is being made to sound.

In a French magazine they said he claimed he could not work during 30 days.

But he has NO work, so he could not go out to nightclubs during 30 days !

I'm sorry but he does have a work. He takes care of his late father helicopter's renting company. He actually lives in Monaco and he works.

Pierre arriving in Nice a few days ago (before the Grand Prix, I believe) with, although not with with Jean Dujardin and his wife. I kind of wish we could see more of his outfit. That's one of the things I love about him: his fashion sense. He looks tired though.
People don't seem to notice him at all. ?

Absolutely. ! But what I find interesting and good is that it looks as if he can move about freely without any hassle. ?

Do you mean Dujardin or press in general? I don't think he and Dujardin know each other. They were just on the same flight. Press-wise, for all his foibles , Pierre is no attention whore and he looks to be moving out of the camera's way or they didn't notice him behind a recent Oscar winner.

I meant the press in general.

Yes, I agree that he doesn't appear to be courting attention at all.

Is there any news about the Hock trial? Is Pierre ever going to have to go back to NY to testify or what?

Hock pled not guilty in May and the trial is supposed to be around the end of July.

.

Pierre is currently on vacation on the Italian island Capri together with Beatrice and some other friends.
Some of the pics suggest that he smoked or tasted a joint. A bit disappointing for his age and position
in case it's true.

His position? What position would that be? He is the commoner son of a princess but holds no official position and only rarely attends official events in the principality and even then usually social ones like a Ball.

Exactly that position: as a member of a Princely family with occasional representative duties and frequently confronted with media attention.

What's the problem bewtween Grimaldis and the german press? First they say that Caroline was drunk at the Monte Carlo beach club, now Pierre smokes cannabis during his holidays... I don't know if it's true or not, but it seems that the german press's aim is to destroy Caroline's image.
However: nice to see that Piere and Bea are so in love!

Even if he was smoking a joint, whats the big deal about that? A rather high percentage of the general population under the age of 65 at sometime in their lives has done it.

It's a website from Austria not from Germany


NGalitzine, in case you are still referring to my disappointment comment and not the article itself: it's my personal attitude towards hard and soft drugs. A matter of opinion as always.
