I got to know them in 1991. Back then Stefano had just died and you saw a lot of pictures of the young and happy Casiraghi family. Caroline was a stunning looking mum with a beautiful husband and their children looked really cute. That's when I started to follow their story.

All of the Casiraghi family fascinate me! But I have to say Charlotte is my favourite... Hehe. Have there been any recent pictures does anyone know? Haven't been able to find some for a little bit now!

juliette, you're not the only one who missess felix and charlotte. there were something about them that was so sweet.. when the news came that they split, somehow it crushed me too...however, i have also seen charlotte grown up and become nearly something else...i am not sure whether she still possessed the sweetness i seen when she's with felix, now that she's with alex...but i love her all the same..and more ..

I miss Felix and the old Charlotte
The pics of Charlotte (2007) in Ibiza, show that she looks to be eating healthfully, huh? A few years back she looked to be pin, painfully thin!

By the way ...

What happened to her and the darling Felix?

Here in Seattle, we don't get much news on the Monegasque Royals and their "kids" unfortunately.

Thanks,

-- Abbie

The Site won't let me in.

Keeps telling me "Sorry you don't have access to these pictures".

Can you give us a more direct link, to the photos, please?

One where you don't have to register to see whatever, perhaps?

Thanks,

Thanks, Juliette, for those cute pictures. Do you remember the pictures of P. Caroline in the Paris metro ?
A little cultural tidbit: Taxis in Paris used to be prohibitive and not easily available. They still are not as easily available as in New York or London. It also used to be more expensive to take the bus than the metro in Paris, and it was often the wealthier inhabitants who took the bus, as well as schoolchildren and the elderly. The bus network is so well designed, covering many streets and with many bus stops that it is more fun taking the bus (you see a lot of Paris that way) and more practical than the metro or taxi (if you are not in a hurry). The girls from the sixteenth, seventh and eigth arrondissements (the poshiest districts in Paris) are well-known for travelling by bus and numerous French films use that custom to describe encounters, flirting, etc.
Obviously, in these pictures, Charlotte is keeping other people at bay with a real or fake phone call. Who could blame her ?

I find it most refreshing to see them taking public transport, or taxis, or .... driving themselves to places.

Reminds we ALL that they are human, and not totally above it all.

Really, I never ever knew that. I have never got on a bus in Paris. I always use the metro, and I rarely ever get taxis either. I guess that shows what kind of girl I am. Paris is pretty easy and lovely to walk anyway; time and energy allowing of course.

I think that's what is so nice about being a princess or the daughter of a princess in Paris: both Caroline (when she was young and living in Paris) and Charlotte have been photographed doing things everybody else in the city does : jogging in the Champ de Mars (Caroline with Philippe Junot), enjoying cafe sidewalks, studying in the parks and gardens of the city (even dozing off), taking the bus or the metro, hanging out in front of your high school with your friends, and of course strolling and walking (your dog or your cat (Caroline as a little girl). Some of this takes place on the richest avenues of the city (Avenue Foch, where the Grimaldis had an apartment) and a lot of it on any ordinary street. I always wanted to see a picture of Caroline waiting in line to see a movie, but I never did though... Anyway, going back to the pictures Juliette posted, if you are going to travel to Paris and you are tired of walking, taking the bus is the way go. (You might even run into Charlotte...)

Well I guess they are lucky in the place they live too. It is definitely not the done thing to go up to any 'famous' person in Paris, and ask for an autograph etc. Pretty easy to live in London that way too, because Londoners (if they are sober) aren't likely to bother you. Of course in London you have the god awful Paps, but thankfully Charlotte seems to have been spared that.

sorry for going offtopic, but there is this
mystery photo that has been bugging me for the last couple of days. the first picture i ever saw of Charlotte, and which unfortunately i lost since, can be described as following:

she was wearing a black t-shirt and jeans, and sunglasses in her hair (brownish/turtle-print on the frame).
she was holding two phones: one for phonecalls and the other for txt-messages (according to the caption). she was looking slightly annoyed, and looked straight into the photographer's camera. it might have been at the Monaco grand prix, though i am not sure.

Does anyone recall charlotte being photographed holding two phones at the same time?

thanks for the help.

The picture you're looking for is on this page of the Charlottemaripomeline weblog (scroll down to May Grand Prix)

You mean this one?

Yeah there are lots of photos on that site from that event but not that specific one.
Is this the one you were talking about Gisele?

That's one cute Charlotte outfit. I always loved that look for her: hair, outfit, everything. Very casual, chic, simple, flattering. love the whole Diesel look on her. And the bag is cool, very cool, sunnies on her head, and the "two phones" thing is so her (yeah, I know, one is a friend's phone, but it's still funny.)
