Figure skating is such a subjective sport, so full of politics! I wonder if she really deserved the second place or she just got it for being who she is. I remember a while ago to see a video of her skating and I am sorry to say but she wasn't very good.
I must say she looks pretty and lovely costumes! can she do triples? any video out there of her in this last competition?

She's a young junior figure skater, not an Olympic contender. From what I understand, she just mastered her single Axel a few months ago. She's only 13 years old. You sound like you expect her to be champion material instead of a competent junior figure skater.

Skating is a very expensive sport, she is beautiful, great body for skating and the money to pay for great trainers, how long she had been skating? for what I understand quite long time, so I thought she would be doing doubles for sure and may be trying for triples, and in sports 13 can be old it depends where are you at. but of course it depends how much time you put inoto it, she might be skating from a longtime ago but jjust once a week an hour so that way yes, you would take long time to muster just a simple axel.

Thanks for posting these pics.

I can't believe she's only 13, already she looks like a young lady of 16 imho, and especially her height! Wow, she's going to be tall, taller than both her mom & big sis imho. She's gorgeous, already a knockout, can't imagine what a beauty she will be by the time she does turn 16...

And I cannot express how pleased I am that little Alexandra took up skating, my favorite sport in all the world, have been a fan of it since I was a mere babe myself. And to have Princess Caroline's youngest child participate in it is simply divine.

Hmmm, my only concern is that if she does grow too tall she might want to take up ice dancing instead because being too tall can be a detriment in figure skating, which more often than not favors girls that are shorter, though there are a few statuesque beauties out there that have defied the odds ~ Carolina Kostner of Italy being one of them ~ at 5'7" tall she's already a World Champion and 5-time European Champion: Carolina Kostner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What a joy it is to follow young Alexandra's figure skating career, hopefully all the way up to the 2018 Winter Olympics, as she will be too young to compete at the 2014 Olympics.

I think Alexandra is a great happiness for princess Caroline. Casiraghis have grown-up and Alexandra became a sort of "companion" in her life since her huseband left... At least, it seems to me so

Caroline seems to have a good bond with all her children. She's always come across as a great mother to me.

I do wonder what kind of relationship Alexandra has with her father.

I agree with you. Her kids are always bound to her, always near her.

I was wondering the same. We never see Alexandra with her dad, never. I do not say that she never sees him, but it is strange that they never do something in public, like father and daughter, got to KFC, to watch a movie, or to go skiing.

I suppose these are the kind of things they do privately, unless papparazi find them, we'll never now. More surprising is that he never appears on her competitions

(..)

I only hope that his daughter is happy and that she someone - if not her father directely - who fills the gap.

And if her relationship with her father is not good, I'm sure Caroline and the whole family will try to fill that gap. All of them seem extremely fond of Alexandra. Especially Pierre and Charlotte.

The paparazzi probably leaves them alone since PC isn't there with them. I've noticed the last 2 summers PC circling Corsica on Paca; part of the time without PA. Am guessing that PA is with Ernst during this time. There's also Skype.

And this time Princess Alexandra fought for her rights against the publication of pictures at a sport venue back in 2011:

German analysis of the judgement of the Federal Court (Bundesgerichtshof) from May 2013:

Bildberichterstattung über eine 11jährige Prinzessin | Rechtslupe

Translation:

Google Übersetzer

It basically says that it is ok to report of a sports event, but not ok to speculate about the man at her mother's side and whether he is already accepted as dad.

Quote:

This is not the case, as the photos show a sufficient connection to the actual event and illustrate an accompanying text, which at least provides a coverage of this event itself. Through this type of use of the images of the legitimate interests of the applicant are not significantly affected. In particular, it is not clear that the offending photos could interfere with the adequate development of the applicant. In this situation deserves the interest of the defendant's publication takes precedence over the privacy rights of the applicant. Federal Court, judgment of 28 May 2013 - VI ZR 125/12

But honestely, this was a regional event back in 2011 in Toulon, of interest alone to regional newspapers. I doubt anyone in Germany would have cared about it if only normal kids had participated .
