When did Alexandra's birthday party take place? In 1st July?
It seems that in the same day Charlotte and Dimitri were on Pacha.

I agree. I remember when she was born so clearly, and seeing Andrea, Pierre and Charlotte carrying her around and doting on their new baby sister. It was so sweet!

I wonder did she-or will she-get a "coming out" party at La Vigie like Princess Caroline gave for Charlotte when she turned eighteen?

Yes, I saw those. That was her(Alexandra's) birthday party at the Monaco Yacht Club. It seemed to be an informal party for family and friends.

I am wondering if she had a traditional, formal coming out like Charlotte did at La Vigie. Or maybe Charlotte chose that type of celebration in lieu of a more informal birthday celebration.

Camille had her birthday dinner in the evening at La Vigie too. It was quite lavish.

The yacht club was the brunch the day after. She had a party at the observatory in Nice and I think a lunch before that at the beach club restaurant.

She's so very lovely and this outfit looks perfect on her. Pink is most definitely her color. And I can honestly see a young Princess Caroline in her ~ facial expressions, posture, bone structure. It's awesome to see her come into her own!

Very nice outfit indeed, although very summery!

Nice to hear. The photos of them are cute, I hope they have a successful relationship.
I wonder if it's coincidental that he is also German or if, given the fact that his family are very wealthy, he has some kind of contact with Alexandra's father's family.

The translation gives some background on Alexandra's new boyfriend, stating that Ben Sylvester Strautman moved to Monaco when he was little as his parents are millionaires. Before life in Monaco he lived in Lower Saxony. Then the article in turn gives information about Alexandra.

It doesn't say but elsewhere I read that he was part of the under 17 basketball team in May 2017, and the article mentions him playing in the under 18 team, so he is most likely 18 or 19 years old. He just started his studies at King's College London.

None of that math adds up at all. If he was on the Under 17 team seven months ago, he couldn't possibly be 18/19

From all I have read he seems to be 18, almost 19. He played on the U18 back in 2016. This seems to be his profile, which suggests he will be 19 Dec 31.

His mother

Seems both parents are bankers. Parents seem described as millionaires and he a billionaire so not sure which one.
