They’re both so young here. Mani isn’t even fully developed yet.
They both grew so much into man and woman during this union.
Prince’s look changed drastically from the Mayte years through the end of the Mani years.

He appears to me in these photos to be almost like a father, taking his daughter out for a treat in the town.

Really? I'm always fascinated about persepctions; because when I look at them, I saw two regular people (i.e. not stars posing for a photo opt) actually enjoying each others company. A couple that looks like they actually have a relationship and a connection, and who actually share silly, moments that just the two of them are privy to. I see a bond of a couple not father and daughter, or superstar and muse, superstar and fan. But who of us really knows?

As prophesied, the Wise One and his woman were tempted by the Resistor. He,
knowing full well the Wise One's love 4 God, assimilated the woman first and
only. Quite naturally, chaos ensued and she and 5 others were banished from
the rainbow.4ever.

.
The Wise One who understood the law that was handed down from God long ago,
held fast in his belief that the Lord would bring him another one who loved him so.

.

The Banished Ones approaching the palace shouted obscenities. They tried 2
confuse the Rainbow Children and dethron their king. Using the lies promoted
by the whosepapers, hellavisions, and scagazines- The Banished Ones
constructed a Digital Garden around the palace that extended throughout the
world. Furthermore they demanded compensation 4 their time spent in the
palace b4 the exile. This was noise! "So be it," said the Wise One, and
gladly obliged with an INVISIBLE DEED. The Banished Ones accepted and
returned to their place of birth in MendaCity. As 4 the Rainbow Children,
they began deconstructing the Digital Garden. Door to door they went in
search of those willing to do The Work

.

From all over, the people came 2 do The Work. And with every phase of the
deconstruction the Everlasting Now became evermore reality. Everywhere the
people were witnessing a change, but the alchemy occurred most in the Muse.

.

To all his good brothers
The Wise One spoke highly of his Muse,
Because her love for the one true God
Was growing with every passing day.
So he said, "to all a good night",
Sent them to bed early and invited his Muse to join him in
The sensual ever after

.
As she fell in2 the Sensual Everafter, out of bodyout of mind,
she stroked her hair a hundred times.
And as she fell deeper in2 the hypnotic unwind, he counted his way in2 the suggestive mind.
Planting a seed that bears fruit on the tree,
he said, repeat after me.repeat after me.repeat after me.1+1+1 is 3

.

One after the other, the Banished Ones fled
As they watched from the distance
The destruction of the Digital Garden

With no more fruit to bear from its trees
The Haze was finally broken
With the rains came the awareness that never again
Would anyone ever lay claim to the treasures of the Rainbow Children

As though awakened from a dream
The Muse opened her eyes
This time as Queen

In the photo that has mysteriously disappeared, yes. And the other basketball game photos.
Maybe Prince was just looking more reserved that day.

Nice photo! Thanks for sharing! Were they married here?

[Edited 3/10/18 10:07am]

Yup, very nice pic.

To my eyes this is a super cool look for Prince imho, with the cute creme turtle neck, making a nice contrast with his oh-so-dapper dark coat.

Not 100% convinced about Mani's outfit, but hey, I'm a complete slob, so what do I know about fashion?! wink

I loved him in the big snuggly turtlenecks he wore in the Mani years.

Interesting observation, anangellooksdown.....I noticed, and commented on, a photo of the two of them (Prince in red suit/gold accents, Manuela in gold(ish) dress) and my thoughts/comments mirrored yours (worded differently, but mentioned "father/daughter" and something similar to "going out for a treat")! The glaring difference is that MY comment was obliterated via moderation. Gone forever. I find the inconsistency so very perplexing.....

I feel, initially in the relationship, Manuela was very naive in terms of her impending status as a megastar's sig other; however, I will say that she grew into her role quickly. Frankly, I believe Prince was invaluable to her in that he helped her realize her path in life and how best to maximize on her "status" in the celebrity community to help those less fortunate. Additionally, her physical beauty (and acquired refinement) is apparent and something Prince would have appreciated.

I had never considered that Prince moved to LA to get close to Mayte.When it was reported that she showed up at one of his shows at the Rio and they hugged, I thought that they might reconnect but Prince seemed to be dating Bria at the time.

Dr Fbrrry said he felt they both had ego in the way and it was really too bad.

never mind self snip again

I think his sartorial choices were due to JW not Manuela. He started wearing suits, nothing over-the-top, everything was more polished.
Manuela however dressed differently before Prince and after Prince.
I could write a book on why I don't care for her but this picture is lovely! I haven't seen it before. Thanks for sharing. They both look beautiful!
I know it's not a candid pic but it really looks genuinely sweet.

Susu1976, I think that's a good observation about his fashion choices because, based on seeing JWs in the community, they do seem to value the conservative business-type suit look for men and women. I'm not sure it's an exclusively JW thing though; living in Philly, I can say that many Black men, especially middle-aged and older, often wear suits to church on Sundays. (I had to look up the meaning of sartorial, I'm not sure I've heard it before; I learned a new word today!)
