Alexandra looks, to me at least, a lot like Ernst and a little like grandmum Grace (a very little). She's got Caroline's mouth, though.
What's strange is that she doesn't look like she's matured as much as Camille (Stephanie's daughter who is a year older). She looks like a cross between Stephanie and Grace. With Alexandra I see Ernst and maybe a little Grace. She's got her daddy's coloring. I wonder if she will actually get pretty. Right now she's just cute.
I'd say with Caroline as a mother she has a very good chance of growing up to be pretty! She's supercute now, and will always be an interesting looking woman. She also couldn't grow up as Caroline's child and not develop a wonderful way with clothes.
This is just speculation now, but I also wouldn't be surprised if her face changed some as she gets older. If you look at baby pictures of Caroline, she had the same round face and plump cheeks as Alexandra has now. But by the time she hit her teens, she lost that plumpness and her face slimmed and narrowed down a lot, revealing even more strikingly the fine bones underneath. As a young child she looked a great deal like Grace, but as a young woman her resemblance to her grandmother became more noticeable. Her youngest daughter may go through something similar.
I think Alexandra is a cute kid.. Not beautiful or stunning but cute.. I don't know if this will change or not..
I do think that Alexandra looks like the spitting image of her father Ernst.. She looks exactly like that man from facial features, to hair color, and even his coloring..
I think Alexandra looks nothing like Caroline as a baby or as an adult.. I don't think Alexandra resembles Caroline at all in looks or coloring. I would not even think Alexandra was her child if I did not know the truth..
Charlotte is the only one who looks like the spitting image of Caroline. Both Caroline and Charlotte have strong Grimaldi genes in looks, hair color and coloring... Caroline and Charlotte are both gorgeous in my opinion..
I agree... I think Alexandra does look just like Ernst... When I was younger and I was with my father everyone would say "she looks just like you" then when I was with my mother they would say "she looks just like you." So I guess it depends on the time and place. I see a lot of Caroline in Alexandra... her nose... lips... but she is with no doubt EA's child.
This is a picture of Caroline and Charlotte when Charlotte was around 2 or 3 and a picture of Alexandra just at 4 this past summer. I think maybe Caroline likes that hair cut on her girls... what do you think
I'm ready for new pictures to come out! Maybe they will be at the circus again this year!
I have read some comments in this thread saying that Alexandra is ugly and unhappy. People, you can't be serious.
First of all, how can anyone say she's ugly?! She's gorgeous, doesn't have the exotic beauty Charlottle had as a child but still, she's sooo cute. And definitely has more of her dad, at least for now. People change as they grow up, my sister used to look exactly like my mother's cousin as a child, now she's 12 and looks more like my dad's family.
And, unhappy? No way, I'm pretty sure the whole family loves her, she's the baby. Her siblings, especially Andrea, are really sweet torwards her, we can see that in pictures all over the place. Also, she does smile, of course she does. It's just that we don't see a lot of pics of her, I bet there were much more pics of the Casiraghis as kids than there are of her. And if you take a closer look in everyone's pictures, the Casiraghis weren't smiling in all of the pics, just like Alexandra. It must be really boring for a little kid to attend some events, it's easier to find a pic of her smiling in some more spontaneous pictures.
I'm sorry for any mistake, I'm multi-tasking and in a hurry. :P I hope I made myself clear though.
i don't think alexandra is an unhappy child too... i bet people had the same comments when they were looking at a young charlotte long ago. it's probably because of the pouty lips...
now what i'm saying is actually based on experience. i too have lips that are really unsmiling! a lot of times, people would that think i'm such a serious person, or that i'm sad or something like that when i'm not... it really irritates me!

imo little kids are a tad pudgy in their first 4-5 years. That said, why would some waste a lot of vernacular on how kids of that age relate to their parents and fore-bears when they develop a completely different personality / look as they mature is beyond me ...

Is it me or is this next generation of young royals (Alexandra, Elisabeth, Louise, Maud etc) just the cutest bunch of kids you have ever seen?? I can't stop looking at them. They are just so adorable!
Alexandra looks nice at the moment. When she's older, she'll probably be just as beautiful as Caroline. I agree with Kittencrews, she does have her mother's nose and lips, plus she has thick nicely shaped eyebrows like Charlotte.

Some think Alexandra is beautiful, others think she's cute, and a person said she was ugly. It's what happens with everyone else, and I don't think saying that a child is ugly is attacking her. I find her cute, not ugly, but in some pics she doesn't look very pretty, and I don't think she'll grow up up to be a beautiful girl, maybe cute, but she wont be no Charlotte or Grace Kelly, definitly. What's the deal, don't tell me you never saw a 4 four year old kid and found it ugly? Well, I did! And I don't think there's nothing wrong with that. of course I didn't went to the kid and said "you're awful!" There are beautiful todlers, cute, pretty, normal, ugly... I don't think you're a bad person because you think one kid is ugly. I also think that the poster who thought she was ugly doesn't need to apologise for that. That post could very well pass without all this complicated talk, some people could just say that agree and others that don't. we should be more tolerant.
You are so right about that!!! People don't be so seriously!!! :woot: [/b][/quote]
I know that's an old post but I had to reply to it.
I agree with both of you. And actually, that's the reason I don't post a lot here or in other message boards. I'm a considerably new internet user, and when I just got in, I decided to check the message boards to make sure how things are done. And I was surprised to see that most times when a negative(not offensive) opinion is posted, people don't react very well. I'm not talking about anybody in specific. It happens in all kinds of message boards.
I would love to have debates on-line and say my opinions directly, just the way they are. And also hear other people's. No matter how different from mine they may be. But I decided not to because I can see that it'll not be a pleasent experience. So, I just post some stuff about about Pauline(the "Grimaldi" that I love the most) and I'm always VERY careful before saying something that may be considered negative. I wish it wouldn't have to be that way!
p.s.:When we read stuff, we give the entonation that we want. And the poster may be missunderstood because of that. So, I want to make very clear that I my "ton of voice" in that post was the kindest as possible.
