I am quite impressed with Andrea's trip to the Phillipines and more impressed by Tatiana's interest in supporting him on such an important 1st humanitarian mission. And more impressed by their commitment to each other as this is a huge step in their relationship. I like celebrities who use their status to bring awareness to the world about the terrible conditions some humans have to live in. Andrea has obviously learned a good lesson from another wonderful humanitarian, his mother.

I would be curious to know if he ever met his cousins Jazmin and Alexandre and how they are treated by his family. I think it is very good to get involved in the humanitarian field, especially when you have the money, but I hope this is not just for publicity reasons.

Sorry brother, but no one here can answer your question. Neither Andrea nor the rest of the family has ever talked about that. So it would be just speculation to say he has or he has not. And furthermore this is not the right thread for such questions.

Here is another article:

Canceled visit won’t dampen ardor for princess

MABALACAT, Pampanga—Victims of contamination from toxic wastes left in the former US military bases in this region were not able to see the son of their benefactor, Princess Caroline, but still the memory of the charm and generosity of the royal from Monaco remains unblemished.

from the pictures we've seen it seems that Andrea is happier when he's with the poor people than with some party organized for him..i really liked the picture when he kissed a girl..it's very touchy

No, its not for publicity reason, for years, the Grimaldis have too much of it..I think they are all fed-up with all these publicity, scandals and media stories about them...Princess Caroline is the head patroness of Amade and Virlanie foundation, so its her responsibility to get involved in the field.She has been active with this work all through these years.This was the legacy left by her dear mother, the late Princess Grace of Monaco, the founder of Amade Foundation..Andrea is in Manila to represent his mother, Princess Caroline...I think Her Royal Highness is doing a great job in training his son to get involved with good causes..Andrea is currently the second-in-line to the throne of Monaco, so its just appropriate for him to do some charitable duties and help her mom to promote good cause..

Complete speech of Andrea - Youth Forum at the Ateneo de Manila University, August 25:

Good afternoon. Thank you for the great welcome we've had here. I would like to thank the previous speakers for their wonderful speeches and persuasive points. So I will actually be... I won't be technical or long. My speech will be easy because it is very easy to help children.

It is not difficult. You should have the strength to look into yourself and say, do I want to be part of the 10% of Filipinos who could go to university and do nothing about that; do I want to leave 90% of the population without an education? I'm sure you don't. Education seems to be luck here; it is not the way it should be. You, the Filipino country, the Filipino children are its future, the same way you are. Do you want to see the Filipino future go to waste? I'm sure you don't.

I'm just here to engage you to make a difference - a very small difference. I have been to many places here. Terrible places. Payatas - deadly mountain of waste. Most horrible place I have ever been to (I don't understand why you're laughing; it's very serious). Last night I was in Paco market. Suddenly 15-16 kids appeared out of nowhere. 5, 6, 7-year old orphans using drugs, not knowing how to read, never having had a roof to sleep under. I'm asking you, do you want this to continue? I'm sure you don't.

You are very, very, very lucky. You have a responsibility towards yourself, towards your family, towards God, and towards the Filipino. And I will not answer questions today because you shouldn't ask me questions. You should be asking yourselves questions. Do I want this situation to continue? And no step is too small, either.

As my mother always says, "If you have to turn off a volcano with a glass of water, you should do it." You think.... think of yourself as that little glass of water that makes a world of difference. Next time I come, I want to know, I want to see that people will go to the shanty towns. Lucky people like you who have education, who are top part of the nation. Even some of the cleverest people in the world have seen amazing things in the Philippines. I have seen development like no other developing country, either. But I have seen extreme poverty, too. And these differences cannot continue. So that's just simple words I want to share with you, and I hope you will make a difference. Thank you.

These pictures and his speech are amazing - proving that he is serious about his charity work. Like his trip to Africa for AMADE, he was low key, professional, but accessible - and, I like that Tatiana joined him. If she is "the one," then she should get used to going on charity/less glamourous trips as well as their high-profile vacations. I wonder if any of his charity work will push him to study social work or law if/when he returns to college (there is a rumor that he's to attend NYU some time in the future). I don't think there is any doubt that he is committed to AMADE and doing good things for the future of the world's poverty-stricken children - I'm sure his mother is very proud.

Andrea Casiraghi dancess at dinner organized by the Virlanie association for the street children of Manila and one of the shanty town.

I LOVE IT!!!! He seems to be enjoying learning whatever the dance is they are doing - although, he doesn't strike me as someone who is comfortable on the dance floor! That's great!

wow mabelle, you are so lucky! great pics. there's no red eye reduction though, but i'll forgive you. :mrgreen:

Inquirer has articles and photos of Andrea's visit including the article by, as expected, Tim Yap:dry: (which was already posted). i'll scan them tomorrow. i left them at home.

it was funny and irritating at the same time how they kept referring to Andrea as 'Prince.' obviously they are ignorant and to make matters worse, they did not do their homework.
