How sweet and interesting! Caroline must be a great skater! Because Alex won Silver @ that Monaco figure skating competition earlier this year!

THAT'S GREAT!! I'm glad the Princess Alexandra has something that is just hers - Caroline and Charlotte are equestrians, as far as I know, no one skates, so good for her - maybe she'll make her own mark there.....can we see an olympic champion figure skater in her future?!

Working against her though is the likelihood that she'll grow up to be a very tall lady. She is most likely to be taller than her mom and sister even in her early teens. I'm basing this assumption on her Hanoverian genes, as her paternal half-brothers are extremely tall.

However, she might compete before that burst in height and female body development occurs, so who knows? And that is if she hasn't found another sport by then too :)

The most successful figure skaters do not exceed 5'4" (like Michelle Kwan, Yu Na Kim, Sarah Hughes, Dorothy Hamill). Due to the demands of the sport, such as the spinning and jumps, it pays to be petite as a figure skater. That's why most of the female champion skaters achieved their golds in their teens, before their bodies (breasts and hips especially) developed fully. Katarina Witt is relatively tall for a figure skater and has defied expectations by being the most dominant skater of her time, with a given height of 5'5" and having a womanly figure even in her teens.

With that said, it is commendable that she has a sport and passion, and that her mother is very supportive of her! True enough, she comes from a family of Olympians, with her maternal great grandfather John Kelly Sr. being the most celebrated oarsman ever. And when he was competing and dominating his sport, rowing was at the height of its popularity.

Alexandra looks lovely in the photos! I think it is really nice to see Caroline with her step-son. Even though she and Ernst-August aren't getting on she stll has a good relationship with hs children.
