I do wish he hadn't said anything. This is ridiculous(sp?).

Charming.

E-F spends a lot of time in Monaco, it does not surprise me that he has lots of friends there. He is also close to Prince Albert.

Both he and his wife understand that the chances for any Savoy restoration in Italy are slim and none. For better or worse, they choose to conduct their lives like celebrities and not members of an ancient Royal House. In fact, I don't think E-F would have married Clothilde at all if he had cared much about his image and that of his dynasty.

Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia is obviously not interested in the restoration of Monarchy in the country and he dedicates his life to his artistic life and to his daughters.

To some it's a dereliction of duty, to others it's being pragmatic and a realist. Take your pick.

It has nothing to do with restorations of monarchy. Forget about that. It has everything to do with the prestige and the dignity of a House, with respect for the patrimonium and the historical place of a family.

Families like Pallavicini, Odescalchi, Massimo, etc. have no hopes either to regain their once powerful positions but they do everything to preserve their prestige, their heritage. Vittorio Emanuele however gives the impression that he does not give any damn at all about this. Just jetsetting, partying, shopping, jetsetting, partying, shopping and his wife even beats him in that aspect.

His cousin Prince Aimone at least has done military service in the Navy, is doing real work (for Pirelli) ánd shows interest for the monarchist cause, for the dynasty and its patrimonium. Aimone simply comes over as a man with substance, with a goal in life vs that empty-head cousin of him with only interest in the next red carpet-event.

What is the point in wearing sunglasses during night?

Now as you've mentioned it, it reminds me of the Corey Hart song from the early 80s...I wear my sunglasses at night..

Restoring the monarchy is a hopeless cause in Italy. There's no popular support for that.

Smilling means 10 years less in case of Princess Clotilde! And she's wearing a strong lipstick!

According to !Hola! prince Emanuele has a new profession- designer of shirts.

The vulgarity knows no limits. Designer of shirts, okay, but "Prince Tees"?
