Same with Bea, if she weren't related to the Agnelli/Marzotto families, she wouldn't have been hired as a 'journalist' and TV host. Lots of beautiful, well educated and smarter girls around. Marta isn't much of a fashion designer, she will probably shut her business sooner or later like Lavinia Elkann did. No matter who you are or whom you are linked to, if you've got no talent, your business will die out itself.

Well said Tosca.
We were had a civil wedding (important due to the money both families have).
This is completely forgotten because of bling bling wedding and guests.

Not even a picture of Princess Caroline alone.

Why would we have a picture of Caroline alone ?

I loved Beatrice's wedding looks. Her purple dress was so regal and fairytale like and her evening gown was incredibly stunning.

As Mother of the Groom and in Monaco she was the most important Royal.

Someone seems confused on being negative and being factual. Misrepresentations need to be faced with honesty and one of the key values of this forum is that you can get genuine insights from locals.

I agree that Beatrice wouldn't have been on tv if it weren't for Mr. Santoro's "fun" idea to put a "communist" noblewoman on his show who should have been the voice of her generation (! - 41% youth unemployment these days)...but it backfired. She was made fun of (some criticism was justified) and no matter how hard she works it will always be difficult for her to be taken seriously. She is aware of it as she has said in various interviews.
But I must disagree on Marta Ferri's talent as a designer. She is still at the very beginning of her career, and no doubt the family she comes from and her connections have helped her put her on the map (big time) but I do believe she is talented and original. She makes high quality dresses (check the seams on her frocks and the quality of the fabrics!) that are timeless, yet fun and young. But it's a question of taste: if people prefer to buy Prada or Prada wanna-be designers they probably won't like Marta's colorful, chic, creations. I don't think she will shut her business soon.
Same thing for Lavinia's now-defunct children collection (BLav). There is no market for it in Italy. She made beautiful little things comparable to those of Marie-Chantal's collection, but, honestly, look at Italian little girls: they're wearing Hello Kitty pink, glittered tops with llace eggings and crocs on their feet... Who's going to buy a sweet pinafore dress these days?? I'm afraid we are getting OT but Lavinia's work for Trussardi, Guzzini and Poltrona Frau is very good in my opinion (the bag La Vie still remains one of my favorite purses that I use day after day)!

There shouldn't be such negativity around. It's a wedding! Let's be happy that we can pour over those pictures we have! Just because they belong to a princely family they don't have a duty to show us detailed pictures of their dresses and for what ? So that we can criticize them? So what if we don't have pictures of Princess Caroline yellow dress? I see a happy, beautiful face smiling in the group picture and that should be enough!

The history links here, such as they are, provide little detail but do say the Borromeos have owned the isles since the 1500s. Isola Madre history

Thank you Admirer for your positive effort to inform, however, if you go through the previous exchange on this subject you'll see that you may have missed something or it did not transpire properly. I haven't put in question the Borromeo family ownership of the isles, but the ownership of Beatrice's father, who is the cadet son. I did ask clarifications on the source and am waiting.

Funny pic of news, am not in the position to say whether it's true or just a joke, they claim that Beatrice Borromeo has worked as journalist doing a telephone interview on the day of her wedding:
Beatrice Borromeo e Pierre Casiraghi, al matrimonio lei lavora

Wow, first time we've seen the bride and groom in the Monegasque national costumes they wore to the garden picnic...I love it!

Perfect.

As Hola has that special pic with the national costumes on the cover, it makes me hope that we'll see more pics we haven't seen yet! Thanks for sharing, polyesco!
