It looks really fake to me. Why is it in English? She wouldn't be throwing around Charlotte and Ps's name like that. PS always wears Dior. I just read that her family hasn't owned the hotel property for 100 years.

That property has been up for sale for years. I'm not sure if somebody already bought it. Here's an old article saying that the owners are the Pozzo di Borgo family. It doesn't say the actual address nor does it say Hotel Pozzo di Borgo but it mentioned that Karl Largerfeld lived there for sometime time, so I'm guessing its the same property. I've also read another article where Val's father and her uncle were interviewed about selling the place.

There are a lot of contradictory informations about the hôtel in the internet. In some places it says the family sold it 100 years ago, in other they are trying to sell it, in others, they sold in through Christies in 2006!

I've finally found this. It looks well researched and acurate but who knows:
Misscellaneous: Hôtel Pozzo di Bongo

Didn't Val's dad become le Duc in 2008? Maybe since he succeeded to the title, and properties he decided to sell to cover expenses for the late Duc. I don't know if France has the same kind of astronomical death duties that fall to the British aristocracy.

Yes CasiraghiTrio, you are correct with the death duties. Her dad did mention that there are around 10 or 12? (forgot the exact number) of them who are heirs so if one of them dies, the rest would be paying huge amounts of tax. I wish I had saved that article.

Pierre's dog looks like a stray he probably got from a dog's home. Good for him!

I agree - the leash is the appropriate length, but the dog is not paying attention - too distracted by surroundings (or, inexperience from lack of training). Either way, it looks tough, but as that dog grows (looks like a German Sheppard or GS/Mix), it will be strong enough to pull Pierre down, if he gets distracted and wants to chase another dog, cat, etc.

Oh yeah that has to be a training leash! Yeah, that's gonna be a big dog!!!! Her name is Uma! She is growing up so fast. He got that dog for Beatrice fairly recently, I heard. It's not exactly German Shepard, definitely a mix, and the breed, I forgot....... starts with an L. I know who knows.... Thecia! She's the one who told me this info. She knows the breed too.

BTW, see the guy who sorta looks like Pierre and who wears the Fedora hat? He really looks like Pierre, doesn't he? He could be a cousin, seriously.

It's called 'Lupo Italiano' = Italian Wolf.

Well, we know giving a pet indicates a certain level of committment - which, with Pierre and Beatrice, there doesn't seem to be any question that they are committed! I mention that because, should there be a break up.....who gets the pet - can get ugly....

Training or not, the dog has to be able to reach the ground with its paws. Pierre should know better or he could hurt the dog.

By the way, about Valentine's Journal. It's got to be fake. She links to a "Pierre" who links to an Andrea"; and the "Andrea" said he no longer will be writing as Andrea. Making it clear it was just pretend.
