In the Philippines, we call it the Barong Tagalog. The one that he is wearing looks like it's made from pineapple fibre (very hard to extract!) and silk. That type is typically used here in formal occasions. Especially considering the heat, it's great to wear that instead of a suit or tux.

His only mistake in how he wears it is that he should have worn an undershirt beneath it, which I don't think he did
yep, he wore barong tagalog alright!!...that was the first thing that I thought of when I saw the shirt!!..I bought about the same design of barong for my husband last year!

does anyone know if any of the family ever vacations in the U.S.?
Princess Graces' family (the Kellys) used to spend a great deal of time at the New Jersey shore - Ocean City

Albert seems to be the only one who has returned regularly to the USA the last few years-mostly for the Princess Grace Foundation dinner in NYC. Caroline and Stephanie have individually accompanied him to these events once every few years.

Albert has also visited Philadelphia and Massachusetts for camp and college reunions-one just last year.

This year, Albert is set to visit the USA three times. The first for the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island. I believe its his first visit to that state. Its a celebration including 50 years since "High Society" was filmed there. It was Grace Kelly's last movie. The other visits will be to NYC for the PGF dinner again and a tentative fall visit.

While its not clear that any of Grace's children and/or grandchildren (aside from Jazmin who lives there) vacation in the USA, the Casiraghi trio did come with Caroline one year to visit her old camp which Grace had sent her to during her younger school years. It was near the Kelly family, (so Grace could visit them during) though I do not know what state or the name of it.

I hope Felix is still on the scene as Char's boyfriend and this was not just a courtesy/kiss-off invite. Felix rocks. I like his attitude (all those funny shirts speak volumes about his sense of humor) and ya gotta love his I'm-not-so-rich-I-can-only-afford-one-pair-of-swimming-shorts style. But of course it would be even better to see Charlotte date a *real* Plebian.

I think (if it is true that she broke off with Felix) that her next boyfriend will be similar to him, she doesnt seem interested in famous, gorgeous type of guys, i think she prefer someone who makes her feel confortable and is able to give her some intelectual references. Lets see what happens, i hope she is still with Felix and by the way, the italian magazines last summer were part of those who spread the pregnancy rumours like if they were true, so better do not believe all this fuss.

good question not sure what the duties are, how the palace referred to her (might have lost something in the translation) and we ran with it and the benefits are all that goes with dating a prince.

i guess that also means that she is one step closer of being engaged to PA? wow, i can only imagine what are the things she can do now, like going to the balls, vacations, meeting important people.....

charlotte really looked beautiful in the last picture... pretty smile like that can always make a boy move mountains for her.....

I just left another thread of TRF on royal greeting, (i.e. curtsey and bowing, air kissing, etc.) of royal families. Is there any particular reason why the Grimaldi family never receives or extend this type of greeting? Is this only for Kings and Queens? I was under the impression it was for all royal Heads of State, princesses and princes as a respectful gesture. Does it only go by rank? Does anyone have any information? I am curious. Thanks

Here is this weeks cover of Point de Vue with Albert and Caroline on it, and this is the caption. Is anyone able to translate it? The google translation seems to be crap.

Quote:
AINE OU CADET QUI A LA MEILLEURE PLACE?

Ainé ou cadet, quelle que soit la place que l'on occupe dans la fratrie, rien n'est jamais simple. Dans les familles royales, le premier hérite d'un destin tout tracé, de la gloire et des devoirs subséquents. Le second, délivré des obligations dynastiques, peut presque agir à sa guise...
Quote:
GROIN OR JUNIOR WHO IN THE BEST PLACE? Ainé or junior, whatever the place which one occupies in the phratry, nothing is never simple. In the royal families, the first inherits a destiny very traced, subsequent glory and duties. The second, delivered dynastic obligations, can almost act with his own way...

What is the De Vue suggesting in this excerpt? These rags are so cunning in creating havoc. Are there some disagreements between siblings? The excerpt is not clear.

Is there someone who subscribes to this tabloid and can share
the article.
