Although they had a horrible loss this year I think Charlotte is probably very happy in love with Felix. Whats the saying? When your happy in love one tends to put on a couple of extra pounds (she looks fab) Also a year at university, if she's living in a dorm chances are she's eating not such healthy foods as she would be at home...

She is not at the university. She is in a Lycée (which is french high school), but this Lycée (as many in France) gives some post-baccalauréate teaching in Sciences, Economics and/or Literature. It's quite hard to understand when you're not French. These schools are very selective (particularly in Paris) and the training is hard. They prepare for Hautes Ecoles, which are like small and very, very selective universities.
Char is studying Classics. If she does well, she can go to Science-po (which forms the best journalists, politicians and intellectuals of the country) or some other top school after 2 years.
She lives at home or in her own apartment in Paris because these schools rarely have dorms as they're high schools as I said before.

Idriel, thanx for explaining this Lycee-fact. Every country has different school education system and France's school system didn't know so much. Glad you take time to explain it!:)

The vacation system is simular in almost all the European countries (I'm from Belgium, but the French system is the same. Only the dates can be a bit different).

Elementary/Secundary school:
The schoolyear starts on the 1st of September and ends the 30td of June. That means 2 months summer holiday (July and August)

Around Christmas and New Year there are 2 weeks vacation, also in the Eastern Period they've 2 weeks off.

And around Nov 1st, we've here 1 week vacation. And there is also 1 week vacation somewhere in Februari.

That means: 2 months + 6 weeks = 3.5 months vacation.

For university students:
Summer holiday from the beginning from July till the end of September = 3months

+2 weeks in the Christmas Period and 2 weeks in the eastern period.

That's it for us: 4 months holiday (officially, but of course we need to study quite a lot during these 2 weeks during vacations)

I hope you understand what I've explained here in a hurry...

Wow you're so lucky! I'm from the Netherlands and here at university you only get two months of summer holiday. (From the beginning of july to the first of september). For highschool it was the same. Plus two weeks of Christmas holiday and a week in february. But the summer holiday feels so short!

Well, that would be a lovely thing for the Grimaldi family to annouce, wouldn't it?

I mean, seriously, how hard can it be to issue a simple statement clarifying what Caroline's kiddos are doing? Inquiring Minds need to know these things! I'm on the verge of writing to Prince Albert myself and demanding some answers!

Dear Highness, could you please tell us what the heck your niece and nephews are doing? Is Char at the Sorbonne or what? Is Andrea going to marry Tatiana? Where is Pierre going to study now that he's done his Bac? Come on, Sir, I need to know for my website about them!

Oh boy, that would go over well! :p

According to what I read in "Point De Vue" (a French mag) last summer, she in a Hypocagne (not sure about the spelling, sorry ) in a secondary school in Paris.
Could somebody tell me what it means? Thanks a lot!:o
