I clicked on this photo set because I wanted to see Princess Charlene’s hat. I ended up staying in the photo set as a mixture of lust and horror filled my body. Lust because… I’m completely hot for Pierre Casiraghi, and horror because I cannot even believe how terrible Andrea Casiraghi looks these days. Good lord. These photos are from Monaco’s big National Day events, where the royal family all gathers on the balcony of their palace, and then some of them go out to greet the peasants.
Princess Charlene and Prince Albert brought out their heirs, little Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques. What I enjoy about ALL of these kids is that it’s almost like the Grimaldi genes always do the same thing in kids: they’re all beautifully grumpy blondes, all with the same “bow down, peasant” expression. Pierre Casiraghi is rocking the f–k out of his beard and yes, I know I’m pretty much alone in my attraction to him. But that guy is HOT to me. Andrea is trying to do the beard thing too, only he looks an unkempt heroin addict. What else… Pierre’s wife Beatrice looks impossibly chic. Princess Caroline is trying to wrangle her grandchildren. Princess Alexandra – the result of Caroline’s terrible third marriage – is trying to help out with all of her little nieces and nephews.
… And Charlene’s hat is so bad! She just looks kind of awful and frumpy in general.
