Hmmm, interesting discussion, Ladies. If I may add my two cents, I think that while Caroline does seem to have a still-attractive figure, she doesn't strike me as being THAT exceptionally amazing for 51 when compared to other women in their late 40's/early 50's. Another thing, I've seen Caroline in close-up shots without makeup, and.....well....to be tactful - she does seem to look her age, and perhaps a tad older than 51. True, she hasn't 'baked herself' in the sun as Stephanie has, but Caroline just doesn't strike me as being THAT remarkable - face and figure - for her age. I'm not saying she looks awful - she does not - but she's not 'WOW! She's only 51!?" to me, either.

I think there are very few at her age that have not had some work done and that is the difference (IMO). I can't blame some of these women, so many people do it these days, the most average of people. It's a lot of pressure -- It just looks like Caroline in spite of her resources has not gone that route? Few women at the age or even much younger have not opted for a little help? And I think Caroline looks refreshingly natural in the sea of nip tucked women? (JMO)

In terms of aging, a lot of factors can affect how a woman looks. Smoking, sun exposure and late nights and drinking ( I am talking generally here) , can affect anyone's looks.
Caroline is 51. She is not old but she is not a teenager either. She has lines on her face and a little belly. However, she is always well groomed and very well taken care of.
There are Queens who have been niped and tucked and others who plumped their lips, had lipo or whatever. The bottom line is that a woman can still look gorgeous at 70 and beyond if she keeps a healthy regimen, stays away from the sun, cigarettes and alcohol and carries herself well.
There is a lot of beauty beyond what we can see.

Pruts, I don't know how old you are, nor what your background is, but I can tell you from experience and the experience of my baby-boomer friends, that your condescending tone toward me was quite misplaced. What is naive is to think conserving your body in a state of eternal youth is the norm, or does not require much effort. It is not, unless you live a very privileged life where you can spend many happy hours maintaining your body in various pleasant ways. For one thing, childbearing takes its toll (especially four times). If you work, especially full time, and have a family, taking care of your body through proper nutrition and exercise will be at the bottom of your priorities. If you are not properly educated in how to maintain your body, you will not even know where to start, and will lack the motivation and solidarity of like-minded friends that is essential.

I think that Princess Caroline has done a great job maintaining a youthful figure. I think that indeed ballet was the foundation of her interest in gracefulness, and an interest in endurance, strength, form, was reinforced thanks to all the sports her mother insisted she play (she talked about that in an interview). She is now obviously into yoga (pictures from a couple of years ago), continues to swim and dive (pictures from last year), and if she can be faulted in other aspects of her physical appearance, fitness is not one of them. Not for her I think, liposuction. Sure, she has a little belly, so what ? She is 51, a mother of 4. So I stand by what I said earlier. Her maintainance program is very effective and she looks beautiful. As far as her style goes, well that is another issue altogether, but for women our age, she is an inspiration because we know how hard it is.... Sure money helps, but her self-discipline is free and it's something we can all look up to.
Dear Iloveroyals, I am older than Caroline, 53 years old to be precise, I have a demanding full time job, a husband and a family and I look as good as Caroline does. All this makes me feel entitled to have a (different) opinion on how "amazing" she looks. As I stated before, she looks OK. The point I was trying to make, was that if you have 1) good genes 2) natural beauty 3) the drive to work on yourself 4) A LOT OF MONEY, it would be a disgrace if you did not look good. I was in no way wanting to put you down or to be condescending, only suggesting that you may not be aware of all the possibilities to "buy" a youthful face nowadays, without in the least looking unnatural. She can only be an example for women of her age, therefore, if they are in a comparable starting position. You are too clever, as I gather from previous opinions from your hand, to believe truely that women like Caroline, Catherine Deneuve, Sharon Stone, etc. are in a different league and therefore look years younger than their sisters in the normal world?

As a reminder: This is a thread about the summer vacations of the family.
Maybe this could be a place to continue your discussion:
Grace, Caroline and Charlotte. . . it's all in the genes!


And in order to get back to the main topic, here's a nice gallery
with pics from June 29, the family at the Beach Club in Monaco.
Especially the pics of Pierre playing with Alexandra are very nice

What did Alice get some saltwater/sand in her eyes? Charlotte looked so cold. It is nice to see Alex paying so much attn to Charlotte and to see her getting along with his family so well, almost like a second family. His parents seem like very nice, interesting people. Formentera is the "new Ibiza" for the fashionable crowds, much less congested, but only for now. It's a matter of time.

I've read in a magazine Char and Alex were in Portugal, but I didn't scan it because there were no pics. It's great we can see these great photos now.
In the magazine there were some things I guess it's interesting to know, that the journalists ask to owners of restaurants and shops they went, in spite of them (owners) hadn't talk almost nothing
- They are simply and educated persons
- Charlotte and Alex bought a french magazine VSD with them in the cover. (And Pierre is reading last week Point du Vue in one of this pics)
- Charlotte bought a swimwear in a little shop
- They were completly unnoticed by the people of the village
- They stayed as usual at Albina's house (Charlotte's godmother)
- They had dinner many time at a restaurant at the beach
- Charlotte and Alex speak english with each other
I find it very interesting that Charlotte and Alex speak english together. 1: because it is almost mandatory in schools in the UK to take French (if you don't already speak it), and 2: becasue it was mentioned in a weekly that Alex/Alice's grandmother or grandfather was French. Very interesting. Thanks for the info julliette.

Of topic: I remember seeing pictures of Caroline and her children in the mid 90's on the beach in Portugal (Caroline was wearing a blue bathing suit, they had yellow towels and they where posing for pictures). Does anyone know if they were staying at Albina's house then too?

Gallery from Formentera:
PHOTOS : Charlotte Casiraghi, son chéri et Alice Dellal... en vacances !
The little snippet in French calls Formentera the smallest isle in the Balearic archipelago. It calls Alice the "new delicious" Mango model. "Tanning, idleness,boating.... it is beautiful, the life of the princess!"

Charlotte's chest looks so weird. For such a youg girl her breasts seem to hang so much and the skin between them looks strange.
The rest of her body looks great this summer!

Muchas gracias Carlos. I was wondering where he was!

Well, it's not the Andrea I fell madly in love with, but he's looking a bit better these days. The tan helps.

It seems as if Andrea really has been out-shined by Pierre. I can't believe there haven't been more photos of Andrea this summer. Usually he's everywhere.

Wow, he still looks way too thin!!! Almost as if his spindly legs have trouble holding him up, he really needs to gain some much needed weight.

In one of the pictures, it appears that Tatiana's father was there - if that's him, then Tatiana muss be there, too, so there should be cool pictures of them, again, enjoying themselves.
