Many Royals have been out and about this week. We’ve rounded up a few key sightings if you’ve missed them:
October 2: Princess Charlene surfaces in Paris at the Akris runway show
Princess Charlene sat in the front row, two seats down from none other than the Queen of Vogue, Anna Wintour. She also spoke to the Daily Telegraph when they requested an impromptu interview. She told them, “I think for anyone living in a new country and adapting to a new lifestyle, it’s a different role…I’m just learning.I was an Olympic swimmer, I lived in a swimsuit, I lived on tour.” She also said she isn’t taking on royal duties full time: “I have just taken a bit of a break. I need time to adjust. I just got married.”
That may be very true, and no doubt it’s an adjustment to go from Prince Albert’s girlfriend to Princess of Monaco, but she has lived in Monaco since 2007 and had a good amount of time to get familiar with it all. So….it can’t be that big of a shock, can it? There does seem to be something else afoot here.
October 3: Princess Eugenie hailed a cab in her socks
We’ve all been there. Apparently it took ages for a cab to stop…
October 4: Princess Beatrice attended an exclusive Tony Bennet Concert
And then headed to Paris!
October 5: Princess Beatrice sat in the front row at Elie Saab in Paris
Not a shabby way to spend a Wednesday. And we love this dress on her – this has got to be one of the best looks Bea has turned out in lately. Apparently there was a bit of a kerffufle with Princess Sirivannavari of Thailand, who also sat in the front row..basically Bea’s bodyguard reportedly told her, “She don’t want to meet no princesses. She’s sitting here, not getting up.” Hmmm…no politeness points there. We hope this is just a rumour. These things can turn into international incidents!
October 5: Prince Philip Hobnobbed with Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow
The night of the fashion, show, Prince Philip attended an evening at The Arts Club in London’s Mayfair. Bear in mind Prince Philip recently celebrated his 90th birthday. What a guy to be out on the town. Can you imagine if the Queen had showed up with him? It would have been quite a different event in that case…this looks like it could be a little more relaxed. Gwyneth even got up and stage and sang her heart out.
What on earth were they talking about, do you think?
October 5: The Duchess of Alba married for the third time
Ok, she’s not technically ‘royal’ but heck the Duchess of Alba is 85 years old and the Guiness Book of World Records has her as the most titled woman on the planet. She is also enourmously wealthy and On October 5th, she married for the third time. Her new husband is 60 year old Alfonzo Diez. As you can imagine, this marriage caused great friction amongst her children who reportedly believed that Alfonzo was something of a gold digger. To prove them wrong, the Duchess divided up her fortune amongst them before the wedding. We hope she’s right!
Here’s a picture of the Duchess at her first wedding:
