Enven though it would have been normal for you to have employees doing the grocery shopping, you prefered to do it yourself. Every morning after taking the children to kindergarten you went to the supermarket. It was said that a lot of monegasques were happy and thought it was fun to go there and meet their princess. So you are very accessable.... Our all-day-life resembled each and everyones. We took our breakfast all the four of us while watching cartoons...then we tried to go for all the kisses we would need to survive the day before everyone left for his obligations. You took the kids to kindergarten and I went off for work. As I had just started a company in Italy and also was involved in my brothers security business I had a ot of things to do. I took my appointments in the morning so that we could have lunch together. You always prepared salad nicoise and big baskets of fruit. Afterwords we mostly went into our fitnessroom for half an hur of exercises and finally we found ourselves on the terace with a good cup of coffee.....In the afternoon I went for work again. I often thought about what you were doing at the precise moment when I was at the office. I imagined that at 4.30 p.m. you went to fetch the kids at kindergarten and then you three went playing, inlineskating and for a walk....In the evening there was a very special ritual that I never wanted to miss. The kids bath...the two of them having fun in the water, washing their hair....Sometimes we took our bath all the four of us together. I would have wanted the time to stop. I never called you Stephanie and you never called me Daniel. First it was:' Mon bébé' ( my baby ) You took me into your arms and told me I was your baby and that you wanted take care of me. I always liked to be taken care of and being careed, you know how to do this very well. Then we called us: 'Ma vie' ( my life) and finally we got used to calling each other 'mommy' and 'daddy' just because we taught the kids to o so....

.... and so I thank you, Michael ...

And here I am 10 years later...


Thank you very much for these interpretations. I have wanted to read Lettre à Stéphanie since it was published in 1997 but never managed to secure a copy. Being an American who couldn't read or speak French may have had a little to do with it.

So you actually knew Daniel and Stéphanie during their romantic relationship?
