I think Junot was quoted in the biography, Grace by Robert Lacey. Likely they were double dating or something. At that time, Princess Grace was staying in Paris most of the time with Caroline and Stephanie. I think this director said something like Prince Rainier was very tolerant, as there were a number of times when the three of them (Rainier, Grace and him) would dine together. Again, these tidbits are just from a book. I don't personally believe them.
I don't either.

You mean this picture. right?

Stephanie hosted the show together with Halle and Jon Bon Jovi in 1997.

Hi Dane,

The Grimaldis are wealthy by any standards. When Prince Rainier II died, his estate was said to be worth 2 billion pounds, mostly in real estate and his family's share in the SBM, which in turn owns a lot of recreational facilities (hotels, the casino, etc.) in Monaco. The palace is so splendid, have you seen it on this forum? The family also owns a lot of valuable art stuff (paintings). As for the crown jewels, there are some heirlooms from the earlier generations and those of Princess Grace. There is a thread on the family jewels here at the TRF. Most of the family jewelry belong now to Princess Caroline as part of her inheritance. The family also owns properties in France, Switzerland, in the USA. They live a glamourous lifestyle to say the least, but they are all hardworking.

I may be mistaken but I think the World Music Awards was started in Monaco. So every WMA has at least one member of the family attending it. And Stephanie was a singer and still a huge fan of music, so it's not surprising to see her there. :)

Nice pic, Sebastian! Haven't seen it before. Thanks!

Question Grimaldi Trio - Future Expectations

Coming back I got to read and see several reports that asked if Albert, Caroline and Stephanie can continue the glamourous image of Monaco ... or if it died with their parents.

I believe the three siblings ... and it is on purpose that I count Stephanie and Caroline as well for thos responsibilities because their function is more than important for the Principality.....I believe they'll do a wonderful job.

There's a lot to do ... but those three have been well educated and prepared for their role and function. I also believe the two sisters are as important as Albert himself in this challange. He couldn't do without them...

It is hard to explain, but the Monegasques now see their three little ones carrying all the responibility ...now that they have lost both mom and dad ... I was so touched ( as always) by all those loving gestures and signs people offered them. It's really hard to describe. You may have to see it closely to understand... what these three mean to the monegasque people. Whereever they appear there's applause, cheering, children shouting their names, young men shouting ' I love you Stephanie' , 'I love you Caroline' ... elderly women taking the princesses into their arms to give them some kind of motherly warmth ... etc. ... it's really special.

I have a lot of confidence in those three:


(sipa,cp)


What do you think?

I agree, on everything you said!

At the end of the Place du Palais cerimony, Albert was called at the balcony again but the crowd cheering, after a minute he turned around and called his sisters to join him and you could hear the crowd exploded when they saw the three together, smiling and waving. I also liked that after that he called the Casiraghis, i think to show the "new" face of the Grimaldis! Touching!

Kisses

I completely agree!

I didn't know Albert had done that...very touching indeed. They seem like such a close, and wonderful family. I thought it was wonderful to see everyone together.

Princess Michael of Kent's grandmother was a Windisch-Gratz so I guess they are all inter-related.

As Stephanie said, Albert's ascension to the top position marks a new beginning for all of them. :) I'm sure Grace and Rainier, wherever they are, are very proud and happy of their 3 children, taking up their responsibilities, keeping Monaco's best interests at heart, and also, making up, putting aside differences, and being a family once again.

The Monegasques' respect and love for all three are very touching!

Generally, this is true for the Europeans. What about other continents?

To my knowledge the American Royals the Hawaiian's are not related to others as the Orientals I am not sure which countries they are. The Orientals Royals haven't married outside their race that I am aware of but I haven't researched it. If you know of one of them connected to one of the following then they are related. The Hamiltons are my cousins why I said Albert looks like our side. Being of Irish decent of the Kings of Ireland like O'Kelly / Kelly High Kings of Ireland seems Grace and Rainier might have already been related before they married. If you believe in Scripture Adam and Eve the Nephilim which is said to be the intermarriage of humans and angels we are all related. There is a group of people in Africa descended from Aaron that they proved through DNA testing with samples from the High Priests in Israel.

As a point of trivia my sister will marry in St. Mary's church in Hamilton on 3/6/06 and one of Queen Victoria's grandaughters (give me time to clarify what one it was) who was a German Princess and married to the Duke of Hamilton, was the chief patron of this church during it's construction and personally paid for it's huge stained glass window and gorgeous Italian marble alter which stands to this day.

This might be one of one you are talking about. The 11th Duke, to Princess Marie of Baden, daughter of a cousin of Napoleon III. It was he that had the grandiose Hamilton Mausoleum built and reinterred the Hamilton ancestors there. They are the parents of Lady Mary Victoria Douglas Hamilton who married Albert I.

None of Queen Victoria's granddaughters married into the Baden or Hamilton families. The first "British" Royal connection with the Badens was Princess Marie Louise of Hanover who married in 1900 Prince Max, later Head of the Grand Ducal House. Their son, Prince Berthold, married Princess Theodora of Greece, a descendant of Queen Victoria and a sister of Prince Philip. The current Margrave of Baden and Head of the House is Maximilian, son of Berthold and Theodora, and thus a nephew of Prince Philip.

To that great job they're doing belongs their endless implication for charity issues...

Here are the portraits of Albert and Stephanie which were auctioned off for UNICEF:



.. along with the pictures went some artistic project. Celebreties, icluding Al and Steph, were asked to handmake puppets... which were then soled for UNICEF as well:

(getty)

... honestly I don't know exactly who made which puppet... but I looooooove the idea !

Who is that man???

Hello everyone!

Just for curiosity: I would like to know who is the man that is always with the Grimaldis. He was in Rainieir's funeral, in the mass for the pope. He is old and have white hair. Is he a kind of 'secretary' of the ruler prince of Monaco???
