Iím going to be honest, I donít really get the point of her participating Secret Obviously itís Philippeís decision so I guess heís good with it, but it seems odd - kind of how she said she all she wanted for years was recognition and then suddenly she wants a title and spending from the family. Itís not like she was raised around this stuff and had it taken away, and itís weird to me that she suddenly wants play happy families. I get wanting to know your siblings but it feels weird to me at her age to suddenly be a part of all of this when it didnít seem for years like it particularly mattered to her. Maybe itís just the public nature of it - and I get that Albert bears responsibility for most of that - but it rubs me the wrong way.

That's an interesting perspective; I hadn't thought of it that way.  I will say kudos to the family for including her, but you're right that it does seem kind of different from what she seemed to want throughout the process.  Maybe the reality of this being her blood family is having a stronger impact on her than she anticipated and she really wants to bond with them?

She was invited. She went. She fought so hard for recognition, why shouldn't she? If all that fighting was just to hide away and ignore the family, why bother to begin with?

She's as much a princess as anyone else and I'd rather see her there than Albert and Paola. There will be a bit of friction as Delphine decides the extent of the royal role she's comfortable inhabiting, but in the current climate? A weird family figuring out a way of coming together and working together doesn't bother me.

Philippe is very kind and generous, giving her a title and inviting her on events.
IMO she should be there since she got the title, but the rest will depend on her behaviour in general.
I don't like the fact she went after a title but we'll see her behaviour from now on.

I thought a judge gave her the title not Philippe.
Oh, I have no idea! I thought Philippe should agree/sign papers etc (if it wasn't the one who gave the title)

Did her children get Prince and Princess titles? Are they going to be doing events (not sure how old they are). There are going to be a lot of Princes and Princesses in the future.

Well said FC.

I think sheís figuring this out as she goes, so she may or may not attend official functions in the future.  But how wonderful and generous of Phillipe to include her.

Interesting to read everyoneís thoughts. Itís a tough situation and I do admire Philippe navigating it with kindness (and obviously he doesnít need my approval). If Albert had handled this with a tiny fraction of the grace his son has, so much hurt couldíve been avoided.

Yes, they did also receive titles. Not sure if there are plans for them to participate in anything.

Maybe they feel that giving her a title and a role is better than a half in/half out model.

To recognise her as Albert's daughter, but go no further than that, might seem the odder thing to do.

If she wants to come it would be hard of Philipp to refuse her - because that would continue his dad's line in this and seem very snobbish. She might attend a few times and stay away or she might become closer to everyone and things might be more natural. The family is in the early stages, something might develop, or not.

I think it's nice of Phil to invite her to National Day.  I'm looking forward to seeing the photos!

It is lovely of Philippe to invite her and I like how he is making up for his father's poor handling of the whole thing. That said I am surprised she's attending what always seems as a very official event for the State rather than a family event. I mean they made such a point that she wouldn't be getting an official allowance like Astrid and Laurent etc and we don't always even see Claire at the National Day. Is this the start of more official involvement I wonder.

Apparently it was the courts that gave her and her children royal titles.
