I'm not sure. I've heard of some French schools having class on Saturday but then giving a free day in the middle of the week. I don't know if it applies to every school in France/Monaco? I doubt it.

One thing about Caro amongst others- she is a dutiful and devoted mother.

The 3 days-off rule only applies for very young kinds in elementary school and it has changed in many schools.
When I was a kid they were still many schools where wednesday was free but kids had classes on saturday morning.
Nowadays private schools are open from monday to friday (although very often they are not courses on wednesday afternoon) and many public elementary schools are also open on wednesdays nowadays (even if the kids don't work and go there only to play around, do sports, cultural activities...) because usually both parents are working and need to have their kinds taking care off. In some place young kids still go to school on saturday morning.

But as a general rule the french elementary schools are changing towards a normal monday-friday schedule because for the family it is extremely difficult to adjust to the old system. Working parents need to send their kids to school on wenedsday and saturday morning school prevents families to do many thing together during the weekends when parents actually can be with the kids.
The old system probably had some advantadges many years ago, but now it is really a burden.

Anyway, Alex is too old now for elementary school. She was born in 1999 so she must be in 6eme now, and in 6eme everybody goes to school on wednesday.

We're talking about Caroline who from everything I've seen doesn't have a problem with age, which I admire especially in a time where people get botox at the first signs of wrinkle.
This was posted a few pages back, but is just so good it needs to be reposted again. Princess Caroline really doesn't get enough credit for aging naturally. She looks amazing.

Although I have to add I think she looks more spectacular now than she did when she was in her 20s. (Basing my opinions on pictures.)

I have to be honest, I don't think Caroline looks amazing. Smoking, drinking, and too much sun have done their damage. If she had done alot less of those things, I think she would be looking way better. That said, I do commend her for not going out and getting surgery. Younger women than her have opted for it. This fear of aging has gotten out of control and its really quite pathetic. I'm glad she has embraced hers and wears it with confidence.

Glad to see someone sticking up for older women who manage without botox or facial surgery! Caroline is a Mediterranean woman. She is exposed to the sun and the elements. So what?
She has what many women don't have: self-confidence, charme, and natural good looks.
