Thank you a lot for the info, Thecia

I think it was in fact the written exam she failed..... because I believe that the oral exam was the one you had to qualify for with the written.

It was definitely in June 2006. I remember when it was happening. We were following on tenderhooks, checking the ENS website for Char's name on the candidates list when it came out. I really wanted her to get in and I was so disappointed when I she didn't go onto the next phase! Even though I knew it was a long shot for her to get in, for anyone to get in, I just hoped and convinced myself she'd do it in true superhero style. I wonder how things would be different now if she had gotten into ENS. I forgot how many years it is. Would she be finished by now?

^^I also wanted her to get in..Studies there last four years( in general )but she had already spend two years in Fenelon to prepare herself.She used to read everywhere: Zurs,at Pacha..She would still live in Paris,and i guess that we would still wonder if she has an apartment at St. Andre des Arts road and about her books like we did back then.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed but I was just wondering if Charlotte marries, who is more likely to give her away? Prince Ernst or Prince Albert? I just have a feeling that it might be Prince Albert. What do you guys think?

Hope I've posted this in the right thread.

Um...definitely NOT Ernst. I mean--speculating a little bit here--but even if her mom doesn't divorce him, I can't see that. Char & Ernst never gave off a close vibe to me, more of a casual, cordial type relationship. I'm guessing Albert. Which would be too adorable for words.

Or perhaps one of her brothers or Caroline.

I think Prince Albert! This is the closest possibility, unless she feels Ernst like her second father! It is to her to decide

Well, i also think that Albert will give her away. But we will see when time comes!
I was wondering, - i am not really good when it comes to the french school system -
Char didn't pass the exams (ENS) which enter you to the University or?

Good question...
My guess would either be Andrea, Pierre, Caroline or Albert. But I'm going to speculate that is a long ways off yet.....

Char didn't pass the exams (ENS) in order to go to the University or?

No she was already at University, but if I know well the ENS is a level superior to a normal University, it makes part of a group of some very selected Universities, called "Les Grandes Ecoles", special schools for diplomats, high level staff of multinationals, etc etc
Sorry to our French friends if I'm wrong

You are very right about grandes ecoles fandesacs2003.She prepared herself two years after school at Lycee Fenelon to enter Ecole Normale Superieure and when she failed we suppose that she continued at Sorbonne.

I don't think she ever went to Sorbonne. I think we were wrong and most sites were wrong to say it. I believe now she left school after Fenelon and went into her internships and that's all.

I think the person who would/will "give" her away at her wedding is Albert!
It would/will be very adorable. I like their relationship. It is too cute for words.

Regards Charlotte, I always assumed she was an outstanding student (like her mother before her), and that she graduated from high school and university (same as Princess Caroline did). Is this correct?

As far as her future wedding and who will give her away, lol, I will chime in too. :) I believe it will be her uncle, Marco Casiraghi, or Prince Albert, but moreso Marco because that it her late father's brother, and she seems close to him, even preferring to speak Italian moreso than the other two languages that she is fluent in (aka French & English). Just my humble opinion, of course. :)

Marco! Good choice! Isn't he her godfather anyway? It makes logical sense for him to do it if that’s the case.

Like I said before, according to Wikipedia, she took the BAC in July 2004, with excellent marks at Lycée François Couperin. After passing her bac, she enrolled in the hypokhâgne and khâgne course at the Lycée Fénelon, in St-Germain-des-Près, Paris, in the hope of entering the École normale supérieure (Paris). She took the written entrance exam for ENS in June 2006, and made the list of candidates eligible to proceed to the oral exam.

In 2007, Casiraghi gained a License of Philosophy (B.A.) from the University of Paris IV: Paris-Sorbonne.


However, I’m having trouble believing that her Wikipedia page is accurate…when did Caro move her Casiraghi trio to St. Remey? According to Wikipedia, she attended nursery school in St. Remey, and I thought they moved there after Stefano’s death when she was 4.

Nadine, Charlotte was a very good student. Of course she finished the "high school". That is, she passed her Bac exam with the highest result. She did two of the three years required to have a 'license" because these two years were done with preparatory course for the ENS exam. But after this two years, I believe she did not go onto other studies, because she did other things, i.e. her internships and Ever Manifesto and equestrianism. Wikipedia and other sources will say that she went to Sorbonne and got "license" of philosophy. I don't believe it. There is no proof or evidence of it besides heresy.

I think you make a great point about Uncle Marco!

Glad I'm not the only one doubting her education according to wikipedia...

So, she doesn´t have a University degree? What are those two years she did after high school? is it university level? Sorry if this is repetitive. The French system is not clear at all.

The two years the Charlotte studied after high school were studying for her École Normale Supérieure (ENS) exams. The ENS system is the highest of the grandes écoles, which is a different set of universities to the public ones. Public, mainstream universities are required to accept all candidates in the region who apply that hold a baccalauréat (le bac, as it's called in France), grandes écoles acceptance is based on the passing of written and oral exams. And the passing criteria is really strict. So yeah, it's more "elite" than a normal French university. You have to be really smart to get into ENS.

Exact! They moved to St.Remy after Stefano's death, it means Charlotte was 4. And it is correct for nursery school, it is normal to go at 4.
Primary School starts at about 6, and before is the "jardin d'enfants" , half nursery half preliminary school. You can also go before the age of 4, (especially for children with both working parents) but this was not the case of Charlotte.
