I think Charlotte needs a break.

Looks like Dimitri's hair is a different color.

She participated in the Monaco leg of the Tour in June 2017, it was the one where she presented prizes dressed in a black cocktail dress with ostrich feathers and Dimitri sat in the Princely Box next to Caroline for the first time.

She could not participate in June 2018 because of her pregnancy with Balthazar, and this year the Monaco Tour fell on the weekend of her Church wedding.

I cannot remember her last participation at the Paris event, but maybe since she is now the mother of two little ones she has retired from competing and only rides privately as another poster suggested.

Dimitri decides to get a haircut AFTER his wedding, eh?

Carole Bouquet looks chic as usual.

Charlotte has chosen(again) not to participate in the Tour and I am beginning to wonder if the rumors that she has totally given up show jumping are true..i can't remember the last time I saw her ride.
Dimitri will get a haircut when he feels it's no longer 1997.

He does indeed. A stunning couple. They rival Pierre and Beatrice, and that's tough to do

I see Pierre/Beatrice as the beautiful Golden Couple and Dimitri/Charlotte as the beautiful Exotic Couple...both very glamorous and striking in their own distinct ways.

It's genetic bingo in Monaco..like watching Greek gods frolic on the Med!

I wasn't suggesting that things would change, it was just a lighthearted thought as someone who doesn't know their father - i.e. I'm glad the same isn't for Raphael.

Golden and Exotic, I like that. Nice way of putting it.

That's a good question. I am almost certain that they will visit Pantelleria because they have done so every summer that they have been together.


But I don't know if any additional wedding celebrations are planned there.

Louis and Marie's wedding is in Monaco next weekend.

And I just read that Dimitri and Charlotte are indeed planning another wedding party on Pantelleria for August, where they also celebrate Carole Bouquet's birthday.

So I guess 2019 is going to The Summer of Wedding Celebrations for the Grimaldis...sounds good to me!

What is the main language they speak in the family? I'm not sure what languages Dimtri speaks. I would assume the members of the Monaco family speak French amongst themselves?

Dimitri's native language is definitely French, since both his parents were French and he was born and raised in France.

Paris Match reported in the issue devoted to their wedding that Dimitri and Charlotte speak to their children in French, English and occasionally even Italian.

I know for 100% sure Charlotte is completely fluent in all three languages. And I have heard Dimitri speak flawless English with almost no accent, and of course French.

But I have no idea if he speaks Italian. And his late father was not born in France, but in Lebanon.

All of the Grimaldis are very skilled linguists., especially Albert and Caroline.

What do you mean by 'skilled linguists'? That they are bilingual; easily learn new languages or are an expert in the study of languages (for example can explain how one language evolved from another/know all about syntax, semantics and phonetics)?

I meant, quite simply, that they have an excellent grasp of an impressive number of languages...both Caroline and Albert speak French, Spanish, Italian, German, English and perhaps even the local dialect Monagasque.

Caroline's children are perfectly fluent in at least three, not sure about Stephanie's but they do know French and English.

Perhaps "skilled linguist" was not the proper way to describe it.
