It's weird that Andrea doesn't seem that fluent in English--or it may have been that the interview I watched he was nervous--but Charlotte certainly is, though with a distinct accent (but then she lived in England) and it seems Pierre is also. Their mother, aunt, and uncle are all fluent in English and Albert even seems to have a largely American accent (at least to my ear) when he speaks in it.

Albert and Stephanie are the only Grimaldis that I have heard who speak English with an American accent.

Caroline's English has a soft British accent like her late father's. Perhaps it because both Rainier and Caroline attended boarding school in England?

I've heard Caroline speak with both an American and English accent. And the last interview Charlotte did on the GCT site was part American accent, part English. Maybe they just pick up the accent of who they are around the most.

I am not a native-English speaker, but I do speak very well and unconsciously I switch between the accents (one word/expression I remember from American English and one from British English). It can be the case here.

Stefano didn't sport a French accent when speaking , but I think it's normal for Pierre, since he grew up in a French speaking country. Anyway his Italian is grammatically correct on the whole.

Well, i wasn't exactly referring to Pierre's accent.... I was referring to the sound of his voice, his features, his maneirisms... It's like looking at a clone of Stefano. TVE site has a video where you can see and listen to Stefano speaking. If you have a chance to watch it you'll see what i mean, Tosca. Incredible!!!

I found the video you were talking about . . . my first time ever hearing Stefano speak and Pierre really does sound like him! Not sure if it's been posted here before but I posted a link for anyone who wants to see it. It's a very sad video though. It shows the accident that killed him (Stefano)...

No, i don't think the video has ever been posted here on TRF. And i absolutely agree with you: it's a very, very sad video... I was brokenhearted when i saw it. It was the first time in twenty three years i actually saw the images of the accident ( and the afterwards ) and still, i was so moved and sad.... Now imagine, having these images of Stefano right before the accident talking to the reporters in mind and listening to Pierre speaking after competing in a nautical sport just like his dad... Uhf... it was like travelling 23 years back in time...

What sad moments, my God. Such a young and lovely person, in the top of his hapiness!
Anyway, I also went 23 years back, sad, sad.
As for Pierre, so handsome, and a carbone copy of his dad.

New video of Pierre in french which i don't understand but i think it's about the win with his team in that race,

It's quite weird to have so much new interviews of him lately, right?

IMO these two would be great as the next prince and princess of monaco if Albert has no children with Charlene. They really look the part and I think Beatrice enjoys these kind of grand royal events. Andrea and Tatiana seem too bohemian and privacy obsessed to be the next couple on the throne, the whole royal scene dosn't seem to suit them at all. To me even calling their child Sacha suggested a disinterest in history and tradition. I really hope that Andrea passes and it goes to his brother as I like the sound of Prince Pierre and Princess Beatrice and I think they would do a good job.

I would love for this to happen as I agree 100% with everything you stated, but I don't think it will come to pass.

That is not the way hereditary monarchy works....it is not a popularity contest or who dresses best.

Pierre and Beatrice seem more interested in the social life of the Principality and in socializing in general-which is 80% of the allure of Monaco. Andrea and Tatiana appear to be privacy obsessed...which won't be a good fit for ruling a place like that.

I think everyone(except the Kate/William fans who want them to leapfrog Charles in the Succession) realizes that hereditary monarchy is not a popularity contest.
