Oh! Too bad there's no pic. But it's good to hear that Charlotte went with her.

I wonder if Charlotte was simply standing in for Andrea, or if she's taking over the duties of AMADE?

Mmm that's good question. I think it's the first time we see her in AMADE? I don't remember if we saw her before. So, it can be one of those two options.

I can only speculate because I don't know Caroline, but I don't think it has to do with racism. One of her best friends is that African singer--can't remember her name but she's often seen with the Casiraghi trio--and she seems to adore Nelson Mandela. I think it has more to do with propriety. Which doesn't make it anymore right, it's just what I think. Because just like she hasn't been seen with Alexandre (who is so friggin adorable by the way), she also hasn't been seen with Jazmin.

Have you ever seen Princess Caroline with Stephanie's illegitimate child (forgot the daughter's name) or Prince Albert's other illegitimate child - his daughter (both are white) - I believe it's because they are not legitimate, rather than having anything to do with race. I don't believe that Prince Rainer or Princess Grace raised them to believe they were better than other races of people, and they haven't conducted their lives that way (nor, have you seen/heard stories of them denying non-whites anything).

I agree with you iloveroyals... 100%. For a woman who is said to love children, who's been so much involved in childhood support work for the past 30 years; for a woman with such strong maternal instincts, it sure seems strange that she puts such distance towards her nephews and nieces, and not just towards Albert's children... Have you ever seen her holding, hugging or simply interacting with Stépnanie's children? Or have you ever seen her children playing with their cousins? Notice that Camille is barely older than Alexandra and we've never seen yhem together...

Due, it's their loss, not yours, if they don't want to associate with you.

I'm about as "white" as they come, with freckles, red hair, pale skin, but I've always longed for a "Mediterranean" complexion :-)

Let's get back on topic.

Its highly speculative to discuss Caroline's relationship with her nieces and nephews. The Princess doesn't live life on a reality television show, so we don't know what she does or who she interacts with 24/7. In addition, we can leave the subject of race out of thread as well.

Let's stay focused on the Princess's work for AMADE.

Here are some more pics and information about Princess Caroline's
visit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from November 24-25, 2009.

We already knew that she met with Princess Haya, but she also
attended a lunch organized by Dubai’s Young President’s Organization’s
and a lunch organized by the Rotary Club of Dubai. This gave her
"the opportunity to address the most influential members of the
Arab world to share Her thoughts and concerns about children
around the world".


** Pic 1 ** Pic 2 ** Pic 3 ** amade article **


And finally some very nice pics from the fundraising lunch in London,
Princess Caroline and Charlotte Casiraghi attended on December 1,
2009. The donations will be spend for child-support programmes in
the Philippines manged by the Virlanie Foundation that is supported
by AMADE Mondiale.

I like the tuxedo dress from the angles in pics 2, 3 and 4 but I have to say it doesn't look particularly flattering in pic 1. Caroline looks good though. I like her up do - I think it softens her looks a little. I particularly like Jacky Ickx's look (very dapper) as well. Thanks for the pics Ice!

You are most welcome, Thecia! I like the earrings best, she wears seem
for many years now and they always look great

The AMADE meeting takes place till today, April 30 at the Novotel Monaco,
main themes this year are the street children in Manila, the community
support around the orphans of Burundi and the participation of AMADE
at "Monaco Collectif Haiti" for survivors of the earthquake of January 12.

Here are some more galleries:

I think P Caroline looks elegant but I dont really like the tuxedo look on her - I know she needs to dress elegantly formal but I dont think what she is wearing does her any real favours - I like the earings and her hair, but hey you cant please everybody all the time....I look forward to the forthcoming summer...what I have noticed though in a few of the past events in the last couple of months is that she still wears a ring on her wedding finger!

Oh, you mean heavy-ish looking one? I wouldn't take it to mean anything of any great significance. She has been wearing that ring a lot, but she's been swapping from finger to finger and from hand to hand. Last year she wore it on her left little finger, then I saw her wearing it on her right hand (I don't remember which finger), then at the flower show she wore it on her left middle finger and now on her left ring finger. I don't think the ring is her wedding ring from Ernst - if I recall correctly that was a white-gold colour. But I could be wrong. Unless it's her wedding ring from Stefano but I wouldn't know that because I can't even remember what it looked like Anyway, as I said, I wouldn't take it to mean much.

Very elegant Caroline. Albert looks good too.
I would have like to see Andrea there too, I thought he was involved with AMADE? Maybe I'm wrong.
BTW, I love Caroline's jewellery.
