Yes, Lyonnaise and ficciones are correct. :) Monaco's official language is French. There is a local version of French that is spoken by true native Monegasques. I don't know what is sounds like, though. Perhaps a bit like the French spoken by locals in Provence.

more on Stephanie's new project....

Princess Stephanie of Monaco is taking a different approach. Nude photos of the princess will be auctioned off in October, with profits going to an AIDS association. And the Irish singer Bono has written to German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder to push the EU to set aside a billion dollars for the fight against AIDS.

Besides funding concerns, experts at the meeting also announced another troubling finding that 10 percent of newly infected AIDS patients in Europe have drug-resistant strains of the virus. The findings were released in a new study, and reported by The New York Times. The study suggests many European AIDS patients have returned to needle sharing or unprotected sex, the kind of behavior that speeds the spread of AIDS. No such study has so far been conducted in Africa.
From: Voice of America

I wonder what Rainier and Caroline think?

Princess Stephanie of Monaco has posed nude for photos that will be auctioned off to raise money for her new Aids foundation.

The 39-year-old wild-child of the House of Rainier agreed to the photos after German artist Peter Klasen suggested it would be a good way to raise money.

She told French magazine Oh La that Klasen's idea had "moved" and "flattered" her.

The photos, in which Princess Stephanie can be seen covered only by a giant red ribbon, will be turned into a 14-page feature in the French magazine before the original prints are auctioned off.

The auction will take place on October 10, in Monaco with proceeds being donated to the foundation, that she recently founded with her brother, Crown Prince Albert.

I read somewhere that the pictures had Prince Rainer's approval to be sold.

I find it funny that everyone is concerned about what Caroline will think. Stephanie is 39 years old afterall. Sure she's made some unwise decisions in the past, but she's a grown woman. I (personally) don't see why she needs to be getting Caroline's approval to do something. (I am however not a big fan of Caroline, so had the question been about Rainer and Albert , I'm guessing my answer would have been different )

As for her donating her own money-- that probably wouldn't generate as much interest in the association and more importantly the CAUSE than the pictures. I mean, look how much we're talking about it. Had the article said "Princess Stephanie donates $500 000 to AIDS research", we'd have probably mentioned it once, then started talking about something else.

*Just my opinions of course*

Hi guys.... :flower:

About Steph's project: It's amazing...she's just amazing....that's such a great thing to do. She's helping people who are very much in the need of help. Plus....she's clever in the way she does it...she raises publicity....in order to make clear how some people are suffering. Great job, Steph
Doing that whole thing in such a manner...almost nude... ...COOL....really. I mean, she looks graet...really sexy as my brother says...and she really brings all one needs to be presented this ways...She wanted to do that especially for all the women and young girls who have to cope with this desease...and she wanted to raise attention to prevent the tradgedy that Aids causes....
About Caroline.....they're not the same....they've never been....but i'm more then sure that this time Caroline will explode from pride....doing this kind of projects is Caro's heart,her blood...and soul. Here you can see Grace through her daughters actions....

No, I diin't want to say that Caro is jalous now. I wanted to say that she's proud of her little sis now....and I'm sure they're much closer then everyone thinks...They're not so much the same kind of character...but still they're sisters and love each other like crazy....

Sure she has this ribbon around.....I mean completly nude would probably have been a little too much...
