I'm not suggesting he should, I'm just saying that with great privilege comes great responsibility, and as he's currently second in line to the throne of Monaco, he has a duty and an obligation to comport himself responsibly at all times. Is this the worst thing anyone has ever done? Not by a long shot. But if it's true, and it seems to be, he put lives at risk to have a little fun with his fast expensive car.

I've seen too many ugly things come out of that behavior to think it's remotely acceptable for anyone to engage in it. I hope he at least deals with some real consequences from this, and doesn't pay off the fines, get his license back, and go right on risking lives with his reckless driving.

Well, I do agree with that. Hopefully, he will learn his lesson and will drive more carefully.
I said the spoiled thing because Andrea doesn't seem spoiled at all. He's party days were quite ago and he seems to have interest for other things. I have a friend that has met him in 3 ocasions, and she says he is the nicest guy ever, that many things that are written about him are just nasty things, pretty much what happens with his uncle and wife.

Anyway, I repeat, I hope he learns his lesson and can move on.

This seems to be a family pattern. His dad died in a speedboat race and his step-father lost his license for speeding in France. I bet PC is raking Andrea over the coals.

I hope so, for his own good! Can you imagine how scared she must be of losing another family member in that kind of accident?

And to clarify my earlier post- when I said he was acting spoiled, I didn't mean that he wasn't a nice person in spite of it. I think someone can be very personable and kind, but still be so pampered that they don't think about the consequences of their actions because they never really have to deal with them. That's all I meant by it- I wasn't trying to say there's nothing good about him as a person, just that this behavior doesn't show much regard for his life or the lives of others.

Happy that at least he did not have any alcohol in his blood...I thounk in this case he would go in jail...

As regards the speed... Andrea lost his father because of the speed, and from the
trio he is said to be the more hurt from this loss. Apparently this drama does not make him change mind. But Andrea has always seemed a little self catastrophy, no??

Furthermore, we touch a general philosophy matter? Why constryctor produce cars who can go at such high speeds? These cars are not race cars, they are street cars, and they can go at speeds forbidden in the streets!! This is a hypocrisy!!

The car was an Audi6, a very powerful one. Anyway, Hope he learnt the lesson.

My husband, who's an experience driver, always says that speed rarely kills. It mostly depends on the conditions of the car, the road, the weather, and most of all the driver's.
In Germany there's no speed limit on the freeways/highways, and as far as I know not all German drivers are dead..., or they would have imposed a speed limit.
If he was driving a stable car on a straight empty road with a good visibility he had very small chances to harm himself or somebody else. Driving a A6 at 200 km/h is different than driving a Micra provided this car reaches that kind of speed..
Besides Stefano was killed by an anomalous wave, caused by another raceboat, not by the speed of his own.

I think she's talking about the comments to the article, which are not really positive.

As it stands it appears that Andrea's license has been taken away for 5 months.

He was forced to complete his journey by train after the incident. He will most likely have to appear in front of the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Mâcon. Punishment for the offense could be significant fines, up to three years suspended license and removal of permission to drive certain vehicles.

He may be a lovely lad but what he did was reckless and idiotic. He's not the first and sadly he won't be the last to speed like this.

Hopefully he has learnt his lesson.

You know, I just hope that he does move on and mature from here - driving recklessly is indicative of someone immature; he seems to take several steps forward, and falls back again.....

Looking like an ordinary guy, not the son of Princess Caroline.
I don't like the shoes and I'm not a fan of this kind of dog. But I like the casual look.

it´s normal, they use a soft color clothing, or a set of clothes, but have one piece, with aberrant color ... in this case ... is the shoes

it´s fashion Paris working ...

Pfft, what a dumb.ss. I know a guy like that, who will speed everywhere, anytime and could give less of a f.ck.
The world would be better off if he killed himself whilst driving, before he does it to others. Talking about the guy I know, he's the defintion of stupidity.
