My guess is that he is staying either in the Presidential suite of The Makati Shangrila Hotel or The Manila Peninsula.These hotels are located at the heart of the financial and posh district of Manila, which is Ayala Avenue, Makati City..The headquarters of Virlanie is just located in Makati City and the " Royal Chill Out" party would be held in Makati also, so there's a big probability that Andrea is staying either in these two hotels,and these hotels are A-listers, the usual choice for the upper class and diplomats.The Manila Peninsula is a favorite choice for housing royal and foreign dignitaries visiting Manila...King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain, ex-US Secretary of State Colin Powell, etc. stayed at the Manila Peninsula...However, it was in Makati Shangrila where Princess Caroline launched a fundraising gala in 2004..Probably she stayed there and so is Andrea right now..but he could be staying at The Manila Hotel-its the most famous hotel in the Philippines because of its rich history, prestige and glamour..but its quite outdated and not as glamorous as before and far from Virlanie, so my bet would be Makati City hotels- such as Manila Peninsula or Makati Shangrila.. BTW,these hotels are almost adjacent and a block away from each other..

Andrea is indeed staying at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. He's with the Virlanie Foundation people today at the hotel. It's been going on since this morning, I think. I wonder if he has a down time, like louisgarrel mentioned .... it seems that his schedule is fully-packed. Tomorrow, he will be up very early (probably as early as 6:00 am as his hotel and the venue of first event is quite far from each other, not counting Manila's horrendous traffic jams) and will end the day/night partying....

Update:

Forum at University of the Philippines (U.P.)- "Children in Armed Conflict", Aug. 25 at 8.30 a.m. to 12:45 pm, Balay Kalinaw, U.P. Diliman campus. I heard many people will attend this. Unfortunately, I think I can only make it to the forum at the Ateneo de Manila University... if my work schedule doesn't change.

Visiting young royal sparks battle royale

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT Meryl Streep’s wicked Miranda Priestley in “The Devil Wears Prada” would become the talk of the town, the high-society buzz has shifted to the battle royale over royalty between two prominent, lovely, and occasionally “wicked” matrons.

Is that his girlfriend? He took her on a business trip??
And she, to my eye, is not pretty at all. but then again, and I'm sure I will get blasted for this comment, HE is too pretty for a guy. He has very feminine features, not at all masculine.
But then again, I like the manly, man cowboy looking kinda guy.

He should take her to Boracay or Amanpulo. BTW, I caught him on the news last night ( we get The Filipino Channel here in the States), and I thought he had an American accent, wouldn't you think?

Thanks, tbhrc! What news to start the morning! I think this visit of Andrea is a private one, not a state visit - he's not even a state official or royalty like his mother - and specifically for Virlanie projects, so what the heck is the other socialite whining about and bringing in our Department of Foreign Affairs into the scene? Is there nothing else to report about this visit that this fight of socialites here had to be featured - the writer, editor and publisher should be ashamed!

Oooh, Tatiana is with Andrea. Hope she's enjoying the stay, too.

Yes, it's the typhoon season. It's been raining in Manila almost everyday for 2 months now- with nasty winds. Today, there are some light rain and the skies are overcast. I hope the rains didn't affect Andrea's schedule.

again, I am disappointed that the Inquirer made this a society event not a humanitarian one. i am writing them a feedback right now!

at least Hola did better: http://www.hola.com/casasreales/2006...rea_filipinas/
(to our Spanish-speaking members, please tell me if the following translation is correct. i made changes in it after using an online translator).

Andrea Casiraghi follows the footsteps of his mother in humanitarian work

Andrea Casiraghi, son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, left behind the beaches of Ibiza and Saint Tropez, where he is usually seen during summers, and traveled to the Philippines. There he visited several development projects chaired by Amade Mondiale, a non-profit organization founded by Princess Grace and is now presided by his mother. The said NGO was created in 1962 and is present in 16 countries to help children in need. Now Andrea is involved in humanitarian work following the footsteps of his mother and his uncle, Albert II of Monaco, who has been collaborating actively with this organization for years.

Everything is not fun and frolic for Andrea, who is usually in the news for his romances or his nightlife. Now the son of Princess of Hannover has decided to take advantage of his last days of vacation by helping to the Philippine chapter of Amade, which was founded locally seven years ago. Andrea with his mother and uncle held a celebration last April, where many famous faces attended like Karl Lagerfeld, to collect funds for the NGO. Caroline of Monaco was in the Philippines when Amade celebrated its fifth anniversary in the country and had the opportunity to get to know the families who were living there and were thankful to those who continued working on the project that her mother, Princess Grace, had initiated.

--and i am so sorry too, i won't be able to go to the Ateneo forum and the event at Nuvo today. too much work to do.

and Monica, it wasn't raining, at least here in Parañaque. it was actually sunny this morning but this afternoon it's rather cloudy.

Youth Forum at the Ateneo de Manila University, Aug. 25

Andrea's forum at the Ateneo de Manila University finished an hour ago! The small venue was jampacked - mostly girls - and some people were reduced to watching him from the glass structure. Tatiana was with him; she looks prettier in person. I'd say that she looked at ease and approachable.

Andrea seemed nervous at first, but better as he went along. The organizer said that Andrea was only expecting a handful of people and got a bit panicky when he was told that more than a hundred students signed up. He struck me as sincere in his charity work - at one point, he mentioned the children living in Payatas, this place that's a huge garbage dump, and some people laughed. And he said that it was nothing to laugh about. The organizer also mentioned that they wanted to include some rest & recreation for him, but Andrea politely declined as he wanted to make the most of his visit for work. Apparently, it was Andrea's idea to have the two forums with the youth.

Well, basically, Andrea's speech was mainly to tell the audience- composed mainly of elite students who come from the upper 10% of society in the Philippines - not to isolate themselves while 90% of their counterparts live terrible lives. He also said that for a poor country, the country seems to be more developed than other poor countries; he has seen many luxurious places for the rich here, yet many, many more live in poverty. He also said that he won't answer questions because the audience should be the ones asking themselves questions.

I will try to transcribe his speech during the weekend and post it here for those who are interested. Hope I could get it done as it was kind of noisy (girls whispering to themselves how gorgeous Andrea is, I'm sure ). The speech wasn't lengthy. As long as the mods say it's okay to post it. I also took some pics but they are dim; will see what I can do. There were no photo-ops with the audience at the event, but there were some photographers.

Rhapsody Brat, good for you there at the southern part of Metro Manila; it's drizzling on and off here at the northern point. And good you told off Philippine Daily Inquirer - gosh, are there no decent newspapers left here.

I hope the other TRF members from Manila who were able/ will be able to attend the either forum at the University of the Philippines (this morning) or at the Ateneo or the charity party tonight will share their tidbits with us.

wow, Monica, you are so lucky! how i wish i was really able to go there and listen to him.

and i liked that part when he said there was nothing to laugh about the situation in Payatas. he earns my respect with that! in a way it's embarassing on our part, because it shows how little we care for the situation. it had to take someone from Monaco to teach the seriousness of the problem right to our faces.

bravo Andrea!
