No, I think she never did. She once said that she would feel as if this wasn't her if she wore one...is just not her type.

Steph is a girl so she's great with 6 .

Did you know ...some of Stephanie's classmates and co-students called her 'Lilly' ,as a reference to her third name Elisabeth.

Did you know .... Carolines was called 'Grimmy' by her classmates, as a reference to her surname Grimaldi

Thank you for interesting infos Michelle and Sebastian! Looking forward to hear more from you two!:)

Some anecdotes from J. Glatt's book;

Did you know...As being little, Caroline used to bite Albert while poor Albie never complained (probably fear of older bossy sister ). It was only after seeing bite marks on Albert's arm that Princess Grace realised what was happening. When her warnings to Caroline to stop biting Albert were ignored, Princess Grace bit Caroline's arm hard, so she could feel the pain as same as she causes to her brother..:p :) (that biting part reminds me on my own childhood, as my sister had love to bite me too:p )

Did you know..Albert as age eleven started training judo and he reached a very high level in it. Inside of book, J. Glatt uses part of inteview where Prince Albert recalls on his practical judo part.. He said that one day Caroline came bugging him after something. At one moment she went after him and he threw her off balance. Prince also said that Caroline didn't appreciate it very much.. (Well Caroline, that must a be a revenge for biting part:p :) )

Did you know....

That when Caroline was a very young, she went with her mother's friend and the friend's daughter to a shopping mall in Los Angeles. Grace didn't accompany Caro. There, Caroline threw a tantrum - the saleswoman who attended to them was appalled and told Grace's friend, "This cannot be your daughter. I can see that your own daughter is well-behaved. Where did you pick up this child?" (italics mine). For security reasons, the shopping trip wasn't made known to anyone else. Caroline replied, "I'm Caroline, Princess Caroline. And don't you dare speak to me like that."

What a girl! :)

(Source: Micheline Swift, friend of Princess Grace, found in the book Grace by Robert Lacey)

Caroline was also called "Max" by her classmates. Her mom called her "Caroline Caline".

That Prince Rainier said that the day Caroline was born was the happiest day of his life.

That Princess Charlotte was very close to her grandchildren - and that Caroline wanted to live with her at the Marchais estate while studying in Paris.

That an old female schoolmate of Albert (Catherine? Catharine?) at Amherst described him as "handsome beyond belief". They dated a few times.

That Brooke Shields is also a Grimaldi? She is listed as a descendant of Prince Honore I. That makes her a very, very distant relative of Albert (did they date?), Caro, and Steph.

Thanks everyone for your postings! They're all interesting.

Did you know... Caroline slept in Stephanie's bed for weeks after their mother died and Caro went to get one video after the other to watch with Steph to make her think of something else, something nice.

Sebastian are you talking about when Caroline stayed the night with Stephanie at the hospital after the accident or later when Stephanie was discharged and went back to the palace. I can remember somebody saying that Caroline helped Stephanie to walk and eat in the hospital after the accident which I thought was really sweet!
Thanks for all the interesting facts Sebastian and Michelle!!! Please keep them coming!:)
