Thank you for your kind comments.

I intend to get back at it and catch up on many missed articles. I needed some time to reevaluate things. I'm not sure that things will ever be as super positive as they were but I'm can't be a "Debbie Downer" forever.

I totally lost my chance to meet a royal. I literally had heart attack two weeks before and was no condition to travel to Beijing. My dad sells bikes and through a of a friend we were invited but my ticker gave out.
I pray my experience is better than some yours because I met cry if they are rude. So what is Guillaume up to these days besides taking some pics and having a bad day?

I cannot express how disappointed I am that people have to hear from me, of all people, that Guillaume isn't always nice.

I will say this, being treated like nothing by a person that you respect feels terrible.

Despite my bad experience I still feel that he is probably one of the best heirs around. Maybe I'm still too protective of the family.

I know other people that have met Guillaume and had wonderful reviews of him. I only wish my personal experience had been better.etter.

i am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience that night..
everything has two sides, try to think of this issue the other way, you can see a more "real" Guillaume, he is a real person, we all have feelings, ups and downs, as you said, probably Guillaume was tired that day. try to forget it, and move on...
hope you will continue to support the family, and our prince Guillaume.
and i really love reading your blog, you really did a good job~

It is a good reminder that they ARE people- not a walking, talking fairy tale come to life. I think sometimes people forget that when they are dreaming about what "could be."

There are a lot of girls who dream of being a princess; royals like Guillaume and his brothers give that dream a more "real life" aspect but there's also always the "it will never happen" aspect that allows them to be idealized more. The problem with that is that no one can ever live up to an ideal- they will always fall short.

I'm a realistic person. I assume that all royals are normal people. Some of them are actually getting too common/normal. It is actually the normalcy of the Lux family that attracts me to them not any fairytale idea. It is a good reminder that even royals get tired and have bad days/moods.

A lot of business people brought their young daughters (this always happens at this event). When I was there and when I looked at pictures of past events, I wondered if they brought their daughters along in the hopes that Guillaume would notice them.

^ That's a good theory. They probably do bring their daughters for that. Wonder if he noticed any?

I'm certain that he did. He's a regular guy. He notices beautiful women just like every other straight guy in the world. Who knows if anything would ever come of it though.

I'm sure that royals are aware of this (people bringing their daughters to met HGD Guillaume) at various social events. This is hardly something new. People have done this since the beginning of time (bringing their daughter or sister to an event in hopes that the Prince or male royal will take notice of them).

I can't say that I see too many business people (women brought their daughters, too) accompanied by their young single daughters to other events that Guillaume lends his patronage to. Usually it is just social events that this sort of thing occurs at. I don't consider the business award a social event despite the gala atmosphere. It was more of an award ceremony with cocktails and networking.

Maybe I am getting to the party a little late but what is Guillaume up to now? I heard he was studying in France. Is that over? What is his direction now?

He completed his degree. He appears to be working in his role as HGD.

He completed his degree around a year ago. He has preformed about 100 engagements since then. He's not hiding from us.

^ He had an event in New York a little over a month ago. I only saw one picture from the event. He is not hiding from you
