Of course. That was just my opinion :-)

I agree (well, mostly) with Tutu's opinion about the relationship between Charlotte and Valentine. They had a common link in the Team Marionnaud. They did know each other before they were both in the team, as they were already both in equestrian competitions in France and Monaco, but the Marionnaud enrollment came along soon after their acquaintance in 2000. I believe they knew other since 1999. I believe that Valentine stays in touch in some measure with Juliette Maillot and Charlotte, but remember that Valentine has been working on university studies and maintaining a equestrian career with Team Marionnaud, so I think that she simply does not have much time left for the social scene that occupies Charlotte's cool new circle. Their lives have gone in very opposite directions.

Now, this is only my belief, or rather personal opinion. It is not based on fact, merely is based on observation. I don't know who gets the single honor of Charlotte's Best Friend, but I believe there are a couple of women who have been her friends from early childhood and, given that they are still good friends to her to this day, one of them might be the coveted BF:
1) Juliette Maillot
2) Eugenie Niarchos

There is also one Wendy Wauters, daughter of the late Eric Wauters, who was a friend of Charlotte as a very young girl, and they bonded in particular through equestrian pursuits. However, I do not remember a photo of them together after roughly 2001/2002. As kids, they seemed very close friends but perhaps the friendship dwindled after the brink of teenage years.

I just had a look at the "girl-friend" photo pages on carl's website and IMO charlotte looks best with valentine. she seems so relaxed and happy there... Maybe it's just because i still dont like eugenie at all - just cant stand this photo pose/face. Cecile at the beginning seemed to be a really nice, down to earth person but after a while she got that spoiled "I'm a celebrity dont bother me" - eugenie look, maybe even worse. carl unfortunately doesnt have any pics of juliette and charlotte in his juliette folder but if I remember well, charlotte seemed very relaxed and happy when they were at the showjumping in monte carlo last year - if i remember well... maybe it's just the showjumping environment/atmosphere ...
so what I'm trying to say is that i want juliette to be her best friend :) but observationwise i agree with casiraghitrio... it's either juliette or eugenie IMO too

I.M.O, while Charlotte was just a schoolgirl, Valentine was already going to university and probably living on her own. So, appart from horses they had really different lives. I doubt that someone who seems so independent as valentine (she was a rallye driver at 21, she is a serious horsewoman, has finished her studies at university...) was just sleeping at her friends at 20!

Charlotte and Val were friends from the time they were young girls and obviously my reference to the sleepovers were referring to that age group. And Charlotte herself didn't really enter society until the last year or so. So it's not crazy to think that Charlotte was a homebody and they preferred to do privte things. Yes, they grew apart. But you can't say they weren't close either. Anyway, MOVING ON from this discussion. . .

None of us can be right or wrong about who is a friend of the Casiraghis and how close they are, etc. Unless we are somehow inside sources, or have inside sources, we can only play at guesswork from observing pictures and patterns of behavior, body language, etc.

So there is no right, and there is no wrong, when it comes to the question of Valentine's friendship with Charlotte. It's not like you get forty lashes or something, BB.

The Casiraghi Trio, especially Charlotte, are very mysterious. Maybe that is what many of us love so much about them. The "not knowing" is, in a sense, what makes it all so much fun. Imagine how boring if we knew everything.

I think its quite subjective to clarify whether best friend, good friend or only friend. Maybe, at that time Charlotte spent more time at the equestrian place than at the shopping site or events. Or she will bring someone or other who likes to go shopping, vacation or others. But that's only my assumption..

I've been to events quite few times, but my best friend doesn't like to be at such places, so I have to bring someone else...

I think Charlotte has so many friends and each of the friends represents different 'categories'..shopping, sport, vacation, fashion show ..we may never know

Yeah...ever since Charlotte gave up the equestrian circuit...that's when she lost touch with Valentine. I don't know why she stopped but obviously their interests changed. And also it's been reported that Charlotte was over school so that's another thing...

Her BFF is definitely Eugenie...IMO

Girls like Alice Dellal are only there in her inner circle because of her boyfriend. But Cecile Winckler used to be there because of Felix and now she is pretty much gone...

Wasn't there a family connection between the Grimaldi and the Niarchos families - so, it makes sense that the Cashiraghi trio are friends with Stavros and Eugenie - there are other family connections like the Und de Taxis children (for their names - German royalty), but others like the Winklers and Delalls will come and go.....

I wonder if Char also hangs with the Olsen twins...I know Eugenie is close with MK because her bro dated her. And when they threw that dinner in London for their fashion line, all the girls came except Charlotte.

Ashley was also at that Louboutin/Lynch event that Charlotte did a piece on and there were no pics with them together...it would make sense for them to move in the same circles. They tend to hang around socialites more than actresses...

The pictures seem to be taken by an "insider" who either sold them, or at best, provided them to someone for this sight?! I say that because mos pictures are posed, or at least taken by someone who was enjoying the moments w/the gang - not taking them from afar, like the paparazzi might have to. Very interesting.

I like the way Tatiana is dressed; it looks so comfortable.

And yeah, I think they were sold, too. These pictures are so intimate and the paparazzi has truly never been able to catch that natural intimacy without sneaking around or surprising them in the act.

I don't think Valentine and Charlotte have been friends for quite a while, but you, drifting apart happens between friends.

(and could it get any hotter?! Really! I was dying today it was so hot)

Exactly - I would think they will remember who was taking shots (whether camera or camera phone) - maybe that person had a one-time invitation to this event in Japan, or was someone's date - but I cannot imagine anyone who grew up w/them, or knows them well from their social circle would do such a thing - leave the prying to the 'razzi!

If I recall correctly, I think Valentine was at Prince Rainier's funeral.
