Sorry to be in the minority here, but how many people must exist, which french is their mother tongue, and don't write it well?
I highly doubt every french person can write prefectly.

I don't think Andrea is an idiot just because he wrote radieu instead of radieux.

Laruedubac is a site about spectacles, music, cuisine, a little bit of everything.
There are pics of Albert there too.

It´s not that serious. Many people make orthographic mistakes in their language. I know doctors who write an S when they should write a C in my language. It has nothing to do with intelligence, education, not it is a shame because he was educated in French. They have the ability for some issues but not for writting. It is very common.
At least we know he speaks more than one language, probably three, which is very praiseworthy.

Well if you are brought up in a French speaking country and educated at French schools I would not imagine writing the language should be too difficult, although everyone makes mistakes regardless of the language we speak. I think we are all too used to spell checks on our computers.

I still don't understand the big fuss because he made a mistake writing a word.
Again, not everybody writes perfectly, it doesn't matter if it's your mother tongue and if you are educated in that country. Nobody is perfect.

Do people here in this forum write without any mistake in their own languages, being their mother tongue and being brought up in schools with your mother tongue, I wonder?

Yepp. I didn't wanna make a discussion out of my question asking if he is fluent in french.
And I also think he could have been nervous and not sure what to write.

Of course we do, you're totally right! And so are the other ones who share your opinion.
But as Andrea is concerned, it's a big shame because we can see TWO mistakes (tous/tout is not clear) in ONE sentence. He's not anybody, he's Andrea Casiraghi. He received a very good education (far better than most of the french people), and I'm sure that if Princess Caroline has seen these mistakes, she must have called him immediatly.
So yes, I repeat it: when you're not able to write correctly a few words which are going to be published, it's a shame. There is no excuse for it. Even if he's not a public person, as Prince Albert II's nephew, he has to show the exemple. And if he makes some mistakes in private letters, that's not our problem. But this "text" was supposed to be published, he sould have been more careful.
This said, this doesn't make him someone bad!

Because he is the son of Princess Caroline he can't make a mistake?
It doesn't matter if he received a very good education, that doesn't guarantee that he is not going to make a mistake. For his disgrace, he did in a public paper. Now everybody says it's a big shame. Poor boy.

Not considering the «I love RueduBac», Andrea made 1 1/2 mistake in a sentence of 7 words. Well spelling is obviously not his forte if I may say (hihih). I didn't count 2 because he corrected from «tout» to «tous» . And for all his fans pleading that French is so difficult etc...well we're just talking about a simple adjective here and about a person quite fluent in French.

It's just a word.
He is fluent in french. And he made a mistake.
People still want to sent him to the guillotine for that. Is not like he wrote "vache" with a "b", that would be a shame.

Anyway, we'll have to agree in disagree

I assume he knows how to write it well but just forgot to put the x at the end because he didn't know what to write.

I wouldn't read too much into it if it was just one mistake. Everybody makes has a silp once in a while, and I for once am known to make HUGE spelling mistakes (vache with a "b" kind of mistakes!) when in a hurry.
Now, 2 mistakes in just one short sentence...

We all makes mistakes in our mother tongue, and some of us will never be spelling bee winners, so that's what I sea hear. A couple of mistakes from a terrible speller, lol.


But I see the gorgon strikes again, but this time goes after Charlotte's eldest brother, Andrea.

Surprise, surprise, Not.

The pics of Andrea shopping in Milan recently, have been a real good promotion for Tod's ,
I've already seen them in some magazines and here they are with less watermarks:

Thanks for those bigger pics.
It has to be so uncomfortable to bear with the photographers, inside the store.

I was about to say exactly the same thing. Maybe he forgot to write the -x in the end of the word. It's not a big deal. We all or most of us make mistakes in our mother tongue. Most times not because we don't know the right word but because we're not very carefull the moment we write it. And Andrea's mistake - for me - shows that it was just the mistake of a moment.

I felt the same as you when I saw the pics. It's very hard to see such an intrusion: poor Andrea!
Then I had an idea: what if Andrea was there to promote Tod's?
It would explain why he has been shot while looking at a mocassin, sitting on a sofa. It's the only explaination I can find to paparazzis' attitude. I hope that I'm right, I always feel sorry when pics are so intrusive. What made me think about it is that Andrea went to a Tod's party with Charlotte, a few time ago. But maybe I'm wrong!

I didn't think of that possibility. It could be possible.
Because i don't remember having seen pictures of celebrities shoping in a store that were so intrusive.

I don't remember it too. I guess that there was a market: some shoes against a bit of publicity. Wasn't PG's name linked to Tod's in the past?
