I think they all have accent speaking english, but Andrea less, because he lives in NY, and now Charlotte will have opportunity to perfect her english, I somehow think that Pierre has the strongest accent... I also think french and italian both are their first languages, becasue I imagine that Caroline must have wanted them to speak their father's language, especially after his death...

Caroline and Albert both had an English nanny, an American mother and a father who spoke with a British accent (having studied in Britain). But while Albert lived and attended college in the US, Caro attended part of high school in the UK: that's why they have different accents speaking English.
As for the Casiraghi and their Italian, I don't think they are exactly bilingual, they probably speak English better than Italian, but growing up they had the opportunity to speak their father's first language at home, cause Caro kept the Italian staff Stefano had hired before his death (a driver, a cook, I think a nanny). For their English accent, if they learnt it from their mother only, it must be neutral, with a tendency to a Brit accent, otherwise, it depends who their teacher was; they probably have a little of a French accent, eccept Andrea, who might be getting a NY one.

True, as the only of the three children of Rainier and Grace who spent part of the education in the UK, Caroline has a tendency to speak English with a British accent. Having not heard Caroline speak English, I simply assumed she spoke it like Albert & Stephanie. Albert spent part of his education at Amherst, and Stephanie lived in California.... I imagine Grace ("our" Grace) made a good point, that the Casiraghis most likely speak English with accent similar to Caroline, and we only heard Andrea speak English so far, hence the nearly-but-not-quite British sound. Now the lightbulb is brighter. It's all making sense to me now. Thank you, Lady Jennifer, shappica, and Grace.

Wow!! SThey must be proud that someone's interested to know about the history of a newspaper. Maybe other newspapers should follow suit..Daily Mail should conisder to bring in Paris Hilton instead.

Paris Hilton is long gone, ancient history, yesteryear's news. There is a new breed of heiress emerging, and these ladies have restraint, class, and mystique: Charlotte Casiraghi, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Bea Schaffer, Charlotte Dellal.... I hesitate to include Alice, because she's the "modographer," quite distinct from these ladies, even her own sister. Alice is on a plane by herself, and I mean that as the highest compliment.

I can't stand Alice...she came off like a douchebag in her Nylon interview. She was trying to be funny but it didn't translate at all...

I heard about the interview. It's short, right? Any chance you can post some of it in the Dellal thread in Celebrity Chit chat? I would like to read it and there have been requests for it there. I heard she came across badly, but I still like her, or I should say, I like her now, as I have only of late started to take to her. It took some time. At first, when she was dating Pierre, I wasn't sure I liked her. Now that it seems they aren't dating anymore, I think I like her. I hope the reason is not that they aren't dating anymore.

8) Stepfather's Auerbach estate in Austria (have spent many times there, 1999, 2000, 2001.... we haven't seen pics of their summers there in a long time, though; it might be because of the Human Rights court decision in 2004....)

*See fantastic pictures of The Hotel Eden in Rome

I'll try to post more soon.

CasiraghiTrio, you can add hunting trips to Spain (at least for Casiraghi boys). I beleive they've made some number of those over the years.

The last one that I could remember is from Nov./06 , they've been in Provincia de Caceres in Spain. here's pic;

Oh yeah. Thanks for reminding me about that. I guess I missed the pics from 2006. The last pics I noticed from the Extremadura hunting trip are from November 2002. I will add it on the list.

Ianna, or anyone who might know: Do you remember what Caribbean island they went to with their Grimaldi relations in the 90s? I believe it was the last trip Caroline and Stephanie made together with all their kids in tow, before their supposed/alleged "rift" of some years.

Is this photo from vacation you mentioned? (orginally provided by iceflower) I beleive they were in Jamaica, Montego Bay (?), the same place where whole family went after Stefano's death.

Yes, that's it.... Jamaica.... I did a country count for all three Casiraghis and the winner, no surprise, in terms of most # of countries visited appears to be Andrea. Pierre slides in at a close second, and poor Charlotte lags behind at just nine. Mind you, there might be loads of countries missing from the list. But I included everything I could remember....

I'm probably a bit late here, but I just recently saw a documentary/biography of Princess Grace and there were several commentary snippets from Caroline, and her English was identical to that of her mother's - she has an American accent. She spole perfectly, which initially shocked me but really shouldn't since her mom was American. DUH!

I think its good for them to see other countries while they are still young since they are in line to the throne and at the same time not stuck to any royal titles yet. Good for them. I guess Charlotte will do more travelling in the future for her writings...

It was said Pierre went to St Petersburg in the summer 2005 and met Tina Flohr while he was there, and later in February 2006 went skiing with her in St. Moritz. There aren't pics from that as far as I know.

But the trip to Helsinki produced pics because it was official. He and Albert traveled there for a day or two for the IAAF Championships. I think it was September, maybe October 2005. Pierre wore a black blazor over grey V-neck, jeans, and a sort of burgundy colored tie. His hair was gorgeous (the big curly hair).

Come to think of it, I think I might add Australia to the list...... I am not sure though. Maybe someone knows for sure. I remember around the year 1996 Andrea and Pierre took a trip somewhere to learn kayaking and ?skydiving. Was it Australia?

I am sure that Charlotte is near-sighted like Pierre and wears both glasses and contact lenses. She used to go around sometimes in glasses, to school or just around shopping or something. She never was photographed a lot wearing glasses, but on the occasions when she was, she was wearing them walking around, which indicates that she was wearing them for near-sightedness. I believe she and Pierre must now be wearing contacts all the time because neither is ever seen with glasses anymore. I believe the same of Andrea, because sometimes he had been photographed wearing glasses in the past, but it's been many years since I have seen it.
