The following articles have some more quotes from the statement.

The family said that there were "both major historical inaccuracies and a series of purely fictional scenes".

In return those responsible for the film production claim that the Princely Family had been allowed inspection and had not objected to the script. Well, in the end the result seems to be a different one as expected..

Prince Albert of Monaco denounces 'pointless glamour and pure fiction' of new Nicole Kidman biopic about life of his mother Grace Kelly | Mail Online

Ironically, this denouncement made the film more interesting for me. But good that Albert, Caroline and Stephanie took an official stand.

Trust the Mail to dig up the rumours about Grace's accident again.
It strikes me that the denouncement can only delight the film's promoters. If Albert disliked the scripts, I wonder why filming in Monaco was allowed to proceed.

The Daily Mail claim to have seen the script for the new Grace film. If correct, no wonder Albert isn't happy.

I can see why Monaco Royals so strongly objected.

If accurate, it's basically airing dirty laundry in public; no one likes when family drama suddenly becomes common knowledge. And if wide of the mark, then it's pretty much a slender. However, since the Monegasque royals haven't so far threatened with any court actions (as they undoubtedly would have, if the events were completely inaccurate), there is probably a grain (or more) of truth in the film's depiction of Grace's life.

Well you cannot libel the dead so not much they can do about it.

In the thread about Queen Beatrix abdication is mentioned that at the inauguration of Willem-Alexander no reigning monarchs will be present (because of protocol a new monarch first visits the other countries before they visit him).
Was the Monegasque family represented at Beatrix' inauguration in 1980?
Who will go this time? Caroline?

Yes, a good question as the district of Beausoleil, which is on France, occupies the higher slopes. However, the postal address of the gardens is La Condamine, Monaco. So the gardens must be in the Principality. You probably know this, but the tennis club is on Roquebrune not Monaco.

Palace Staff & Finances

I know this question has been posed elsewhere in the forums but I've yet to find an answer.

Does HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco have a lady-in-waiting?

Do we have any information of HSH Princess Charlene's staff at the palace? Does she employ a staff of her own?

Does HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover or HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco have ladies-in-waiting? Staff of their own at the palace?



Much is known about the finances of most of the royal houses of Europe--how much they are paid by the government, who in the royal family is supported by the government, civil lists, etc.--but little is known about the finances of the Princely House of Monaco. Thought this could be a thread to discuss this.

So, does anyone know how much the government spends on HSH The Sovereign Prince and Princess of Monaco annually? Who owns the Prince's Palace? What else is at the disposal of the monarch but owned by the state?

I think Prince Albert was paid about 14 million Euros last year. He owns the palace. Per Forbes magazine, the Grimaldis are worth around 5.7 billion dollars. I don't know if that includes what the Casiraghis inherited from their father. I think Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline have offices in the palace and at least a secretary. PC used to have a lady in waiting before Charlene but I don't know if she still does. I remember reading in the 1960s that the Prince was paid based on the economy's performance. I don't know if that has changed or not. You might look on the Monaco Government website to see if there is a breakdown on what's paid to the Prince.
