Yes, it is in Kenya. Won't be sunny there this season? I mean, it must be spring or summer there right now.

P.S Debrann, the cat in your photo is very very cute!!

Oh well, Debrann and Azure, i'm afraid P. Caroline has already been photographed with Charlotte and Alex in the Alpes... ( check http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...5-a-16083.html ), so i guess there's no kenya this year ( nor P. Ernst, i suspect... )!!!
And to you both... a Happy New Year

Thanks.

I have the impression that she became suddenly very old!!! Tired, sad and neglected.

great to see her out and about anyway!! yes she looks tired and sad. Does anyone know who were the people she was walking with in Paris?
Thank heavens she has her children. You know she could have known about Ernst's whereabouts and activities before it got into the newspapers. She has resources available to her to find out where he is etc. There could be a possibility that she has known of his philandering for quite some time, hence there hasn't been any effort of reconciliation. Can she get a divorce? They did not marry in the Roman Catholic church. Ernst left his other wife, he is leaving Caroline -- seems to me that the fault lies in him. He could be having a middle aged crisis. Heaven knows where he will end up.

Well, I'm sure all of us have been thru a bad break up - whether we decided, or not - you NEED that time to cry and reflect; not be dressed up w/all your make up & hair done. Then, when you're OVER IT, you go back to normal. I'm sure because the pictures were recently released, she'll grieve a little longer - and, by looking neglected in public (and allowing photos to be taken), she garners more sympathy - perhaps she's using the press to make her own point. Eventually, she'll be able to move forward and return to normal.....

Yes, but remember that this time things are a little bit different for her: she's no longer young, she's facing old age, what must make her think more bitterly of the future, and this time she has no one to turn back to. There's no P. Grace to comfort her anymore as in Junot case, and there's no P. Rainier to support her again, as he did when Stefano died. The Casis's have their own lives and neither P. Albert or P. Stephanie seem much supportive. This time she's facing public humiliation on her own, she's facing the storm alone... there seems to be no more protective family warmth where she could hide her pain away. These are really difficult times for her...again...

The princess is `facing old age` as she turns 53 this month? It would be hard to agree with this had she been about to turn 63 years of age in my opinion. Even this is not considered old age nowadays.

I have to say that there seems to be a tremendous amount of presumption about how Princess Caroline feels about various situations, her relationships, who is supporting her and who is not, who is responsible for her marriage break down [if indeed there is one], how she gets on with her children and so on.

She never speaks publicly or gives interviews about these topics, nor does her family or friends. How can these things possibly be known?

I think Albert and Stephanie are very supportive. They are a close bunch.

Caroline is a very strong woman and I think she will hold her own on this situation, also as you get older you learn to cope in ways that you would not have been able to do when you were younger. Though her family have grown up apart from Alex - Caroline is very close to her older children and I'm sure they will try and support the best they can because they are now adults themselves.

She also has the strength and support of her 4 children. She's always had a strong, close relationship with all her children - they'll sustain her thru this; I'm sure Stephanie and Albert have enough going on.....

Princess Caroline has a very loving close relationship with her children. It is evident that there is special bond among Albert, Stephanic and Caroline. Since the passing of Prince Rainier the Monaco Royal family continues to grow closer.

I agree with agogo, this is the time when the three siblings can really support one another.
Just like in "ordinary" families, the ageing process is relentless, but the Three can help each other through that period of change.
