Awww, thanx Ice for the pix. Steph is such a cutie....

Yesterday Stephanie celebrated xmas with her friends at CAPS ( Centre d'activité Princesse Stéphanie ). She recieved several presents from them. Posters, greeting cards and a DVD, some for her, some for Louis, Pauline and Camille.

That is a bit abrupt, isn't it? One minute you see them smootching as though the rest of the world doesn't exist, next thing he's back with his ex? Don't know whether that is true. Steph is often good for surprises, but they didn't look as though they would have major problems. Maybe she has been too busy recently. Basically since mid November she's been very busy. She's been around MC a lot (sometimes several events per day - just saw pics of PA and her playing santa at the Foyer, obviously same day as a few oher events), so maybe he felt neglected and thinks it's going to stay like that for a while while Steph is supporting PA.

They are claiming though that he will reopen his bar. That seems a bit strange. Thought it was HERs. Well, maybe she is being generous and lets him work there for a while. I've seen Adans hanging around in Larvotto the summer after the divorce as well, when one would have thought that he would rather avoid being seen around here after al the news stories. She doesn't seem to be the kind to carry a grudge.

I thought exactly the same...

It might explain though, why she was on Wednesday on the Vip tribune with PA, rather then as usual sitting with the fans.

Maybe Steph is in a transition and finally coming to terms with who she is. We have seen here style almost completely changed. Almost always wearing the right thing for the right occassion (though a bit more colour and less turtleneck might pep it up a little), but still the sort of style that a hands on mum can wear. Se also seemed to enjoy doing it lately, which didn't always seem to be the case. She seems to be more at ease with the cameras too (before she seemed to be bothered by them even on public occassions). So maybe she is trying to join the life she had with the life of a princess (which she seemed to try to escape from before). ANd maybe Matthieu saw that coming and felt it was better to go rather then hang on and get hurt. It's a pitty though, because with some effort that could be worked out and it is not like she suddenly turned into a princess. He knew whom he was with and that alone attracts the press. It takes a strong man with a lot of character to stay his grounds and I think Steph is much tougher then she lets on and also then the men she has been with.

Again, you're completly right there , paca....I also think that Steph would be great with a man who stands all by himself, I mean professinally... someone who would be for once easaly accepted by her surrounding... but she needs to be in love which means it has to be the right one on all levels and we all know that is hard to find...I have't totally given up on Mathieu anyhow ' cause he seems to be a good guy.
I came to think of something though: Even if Stephanie goes for real feelings and she doesn't care about social statues and stuff I think it bothers her that it would never be just easy and seemingly right to bring someone like Mathieu to the family xmas celebrations at the palace and similar occasions...I mean she could bring him, she could have braught Adans...after some struggles she brought Daniel...but it always weill be strange for them ( the man) as for the rest of the family...
It's not that she has to go for a prince or something but I guess some normal standard well educated business guy, teacher, lawyer, doctor ... or something of that kind would make it go...anyway...finally it's her feelings which play the most important role here...

I'm sure some education won't hurt anyone, but she doesn't seem to be going for the intellectual type (neither is Caro, actually I think they have not such a different taste after all, they were just looking in different places , I mean looking at EA, he doesn't seem to be the most refined and polished version of a man either). But I think now things are a lot different then while her Dad was still around. He surrounded himself with the sort of people who would look down on others (unfortunately there are a lot of people around here who do that and did that with Grace as well - she had to prove that she was good to become what people think of her today and it was surely not easy). So anyone trying to enter the family will be scrutinized. It is up to the family to show the backbone to be supportive to the prospective new members and I am positive that this will be much more the case now then it has been. But still I think it will be difficult, because no matter how much they try to be close to normal people, they did not grow up with that conception, so they will never realy know whether someone is behavig a certain way because of how they grew up, or whether it is due to the caracter of a person. I think coming from a similar background does facilitate things, but unfortunately that heart often goes wandering in differnt territories then the mind...

Stephanie in Auron sometime last week. It looks like the boy on her left (in front) is Louis, if so he has again grown a lot. Can anyone confirm my guess?
I think she's in Auron now as well with her kids. She usually spends new years eve there including a one-week skiing vacation.

I doubt it is Louis. The hair is too dark in comparison with last summer and I think he is clearly older (my guess would be between 16-18). I know boys in their teens can grow very fast, but I doubt that they grow this fast. He might be the son of a friend.

You might be right there paca. But I've seen photos of Louis from last November and he had again grown a lot since July. The boy on these pix seems to be Stephanie's hight, Louis has been almost his mon's hight in summer....but I don't know as it isonly the boys back that is seen on these pictures.

Yes, but the hair is so much darker too. And I think he is taller then Steph, although perspective and point of reference are a bit vague. They don't really stand close enough to determine his actual hight.

True. It's just that the boys head looks a bit like Louis', but well, I don't know :p:) it's not really important I guess :p ...

From the portuguese magazine CARAS from this week. It talks about her evolution from the terrible enfant until the first lady.
