For what I can tell you he just made the photos for her last interview in Vogue Paris. Yesterday I put the link in Charlotte´s cover thread if you are interested. So I understand they are still close friend.

And since German is the native language of Ernst, I am surprised to hear that he and Caroline mostly spoke English together.
She totally can speak german and I would say quite well
however I think it is dificult for her to keep talking during a long time cos in this AMADE act she changes into english in a couple of minutes.
You can see how there is need of a traductor for ppl in the room when she talks in english so it makes no sense to change the language.

Her grandmother and mother did exactly the same thing. The problem is the women of Monaco don't like being perceived as empty headed socialites so they try to counteract it. Theytry to counteract it by controlling the interview but that doesn't really work either. The media is committed to the fairytale and oversell everything. I don't think Charlotte is trying to come accross as an intellectual or a better rider than she really is. She just doesn't want to be perceived as a shallow socialite.
Am I the only business major on this blog? That is one of the things that fascinates me about Monaco; what good business people they are. Their only assets are the sun, the sea and the royal family but they have leveraged those assets to the maximum effect. The US on the other hand has abundant assets and has managed to waste most of them.
Again Trep Step and Lovely Kate you two mostly assume the worst and I am overly optimistic about Charlotte. I have a feeling the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.
Another business major here and me too, I am utterly fastinated by their business, specially Caroline and Charlotte´s Monaco`s representation business. I truly believe they both are who sell the glamour that the others business need in order to be sucessful if you know what I mean. I always have thought that Grace-Caroline-Charlotte have been an authentic blessing for Monaco.
However I read and listen to Charlotte`s speeches in her interviews as sponsor of the philosophical meetings and...
I need to wait until I form my full opinion but I fear she has the same level as rider: sponsor level only
I am not Socrates myself at-all but I am not even sure if she is saying something when she is talking sometimes...
