The spitting image of her mother HSH Princess Caroline of Hanover, Charlotte Casiraghi, 30, condemned the paparazzi in a Vanity Fair France interview published October 26, 2016.
“I find it unacceptable that they take over my private life. That I can be observed at any time, my private life scrutinized. It’s a breach of my personal freedom.”
The granddaughter of Grace Kelly has no presence on social media yet can be found regularly in the gossip magazines which dissect her love life (and that of her mother). “Today we live in a society of obscenity, of staging one’s life … I believe that not disclosing oneself is a form of good etiquette.”
The Princess, an accomplished equestrian – “With the horse, you are not in a relationship of power, but a relationship of trust” – is a regular fixture at Jumping International held annually in June in the Principality, but her other passion is philosophy. She has been published in the French daily, Liberation, writing a book review on the “Défense du secret d’Anne Dufourmantelle” with a byline “Charlotte Casiraghi, President of Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco”, an association she founded in 2015.
Les Rencontres holds a series of monthly workshops with guest speakers in different locations across Monaco from October to April. The theme for 2016-17 is “The Body”. The next conference – “Quels maux pour le corps? Le corps souffrant” – takes place Thursday, November 17, at Théâtre des Variétés, from 7 to 9 pm.
A full schedule can be found on Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco website.
