On March 8, 2011, HRH Princess Tatiana of Greece attended the Vanity Fair Rocks party at the Corinthia Hotel in lovely London, England. Great.
I’m not sure what the point of this Vanity Fair party was for, but one thing that I do know: There were a lot of people at the party smoozing, boozing, and air-kissing. Guests included model Jacquetta Wheeler, Amanda Eliasch, Ari Busson, Camilla Rutherford, Eliane Fattal, Nicky Haslam, Plum Sykes and hundreds of other fashionable people as well as VIP London socialites.
Oh and Princess Tatiana’s husband was there, Prince Nikolaos… but no one cares.

The French newspaper, Nice-Matin, is reporting that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI will visit the Principality of Monaco sometime in 2012. Now the Riviera Times has picked up on the story though they remain skeptical.
Per the Riviera Times:
Although the date that the religious leader will land in the Principality is still not officially set in stone yet, Archbishop Bernard César Barsi has revealed that he will celebrate a Catholic Solemn Mass in the Stade Louis II. It’s estimated that around 22,000 faithful followers will fill the stadium to worship with and to see in person the German-born head of the Catholic Church.
Ahead of this mass, it is planned for the Bishop of Rome, to pay a visit to the palace, the official residence of the Prince of Monaco, and to then join local cardinals at the Principality’s cathedral.
On the latest issue of the French magazine, Point de Vue, is the future Princess of Monaco, Charlene Wittstock, looking lovely in a long dress and her hair in a delicate ballerina bun.
The image of Miss Wittstock on the cover was taken at the when she was in South Africa to participate in the famous Midmar Mile Race as well as to raise money for the Special Olympics. In the magazine there is a nice article about Charlene according to several French royal watchers. If you happen to run across Point de Vue magazine at your local newsstand, read it or buy it.
