Wow! Princess Charlene looked AMAZING last night at the Ralph Lauren Collection Show and private dinner at Les Beaux-Arts de Paris, Paris France. Beautiful hair, makeup, a colorful dress and she wore jewelry....lovely huge drop earrings and a gorgeous bracelet. She really looked lovely and regal! She looks so comfortable in her own skin so to speak. More so than in months and years past, in my humble opinion. You can see her look here: http://www.newmyroyals.com/2013/10/princess-charlene-in-paris_9.html.

Charlotte Casiraghi (daughter of HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover) and her partner Gad Elmaleh, a Moroccan/French actor/comedian, have become parents to a son named Raphael, born on December 17 in Monaco.

Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Княгиня Шарлин получила награду от Риз Уизерспун. = Princess Charlène received an award from Reece Witherspoon.
Риз Уизерспун - LOL!

So the new Grace Kelly film starring Nicole Kidman is attracting criticism, both from the Princiary Family and reviewers. Reportedly it will highlight some more tragic aspects of Princess Grace's life. What I find most surprising about her married life is the fact that she always was more or less uncomfortable speaking French! It really shatters the princesse des contes de fées illusion.

À propos language, her paternal grandparents must have been native Gaelic speakers (hailing from western Connacht), while her maternal grandparents were native Germans. And not dirt poor emigrants like Charlène's freed-serf Wittstock ancestors from the Uckermark in Pomerania. Her grandfather fled to the US from a bankruptcy scandal, but back in Württemberg the family was quite patrician and had their own small castle by the sea (Lake Constance), just like Grace was to have in Monaco.

I guess the Bouviers were an exception among the Philadelphians. But with the city having the second-largest Irish population in the US, it's amazing to think of what a (passive) Gaeltacht it once was!

The Bouviers - are you referring to JBKO's family?   They were not Philadelphians.   I believe they hailed from New York.

Yes, you are right, although the first Bouvier lived in Philadelphia.

That's right, and he was French.  What does that have to do with Grace Kelly not being comfortable speaking French?   I've read several of your posts on this forum and you always seem to go off on tangents.  It appears to me that you are trying to impress (someone?)  with your knowledge of languages when all you really do is confuse the issue of the orginal post.

Trust me, it's not so much me being knowledgeable as others being quite ignorant!

OK, what about Benjamin Franklin, then? The most famous Philadelphian and ideal American was a highly successful US ambassador to France. That is a heavy historic precedent for a (self-made) Philadelphian gaining a prominent role in a French-speaking country!

On a forum about Russian royals of mainly German descent at a Francophone court, vacationing in Finland, Poland and Denmark, I see it as my duty to help others learn Russian, German, French, Danish, Finnish, Swedish etc. just like I expect them to help me learn Russian through content-based learning. No better way to learn than through a subject one is already passionate about.
