(TRF Readers: I've been noticing numerous mistakes when lurking in the Monaco forums this week. 
  1. Claims Camille wants to be a photographer are false. Read the Gala interview again, where she says she wants to attend an ACTING school in Paris and take over the Princess Grace Theatre from Princess Stephanie someday. It's likely a class project (note the other kids her age there doing the same thing!) or just a hobby. The camera she has is not a professional camera-a friend of mine who is a hobby photographer-has a very similar one. 
  2. Claims Charlotte attended her first Rose Ball at 19 years old: False. She was 18, as her 19th birthday was in August 2006. Pierre was 18, Andrea was 21 at the 2006 Rose Ball as their birthdays all occurred AFTER the ball in June, August and September 2006 since the ball was in March.)
