-Princess Caroline of Hanover, Andrea Albert Pierre Casiraghi & Charlotte Marie Pomeline Casiraghi attended a Private party thrown by Noor Fares on the yacht Wedge 2{Photos} (not sure when I've read multiple sources that its from various times recently. my guess is during the GCT Monaco)

-Princess Caroline of Hanover allegedly announced her eldest son, Andrea Albert Pierre Casiraghi, is engaged to be married to Tatiana Santo Domingo on Tuesday. Supposedly. Allegedly. I'll believe it when I see the statement from the Palace, of which there has not yet been one (no, Monaco-Martin's announcement does not count. They could just be saying she said that to sell papers. The original article in Vouge Italy had too many mistakes for it to be true. There has been nothing on the palace website or facebook page. Once it hits there, its true, never EVER before.). I have 5 reasons why there is no way possible that it is true.
