There was a French actress Rainier had seen for years (off and on). It was claimed she was barren which is why Rainier could not marry her (the Monagueque crown NEEDED heirs at that point to avoid reversion to France). After he married Grace and they had both Caroline and Albert, the woman had a child (not sure if she was married, the baby was the story), thus defeating the gossip and having her own life. There was never anything after that about the two having contact.

Both Grace and Rainier have been written about as being unhappy during the 1970s and there were rumours of romances of them with others but I believe they just led separate lives (Grace in Paris with the girls and Rainier in Monaco training Albert) until they came to peace again with their marriage and its requirements. I doubt either of them would have risked their core relationship with outsiders. They truly did love each other by the 1980s.

The woman you're talking about is Giselle Pascal. She died one month ago. Though completely forgotten, which is a shame, she was, at the time she lived with Rainier, one of France's most popular movie stars (during the 40s and early 50s). After the break-up with Rainier, she married another forgotten movie star of the day, Raymond Pellegrin, with whom she remained happily married and indeed had a daughter, Pascale Pellegrin, another actress.

Some links (sorry for those who don't speak French- at least, you'll see her photo)

Thank you so much leomichel. Even though its by association, I'm always interested in Monaco history---particularly before the media onslaught of now.

It is a shame she died almost ignored. Often USA actor/esses who were at the top of the world died in lonely poverty only to merit a blip on the AP wires (where its often ignored).
I have actually seen some of Giselle's work and she was a lovely spirit. Maybe its a good thing she didn't have all the press of "Rainier's last lover dies".

Member of Monaco Royal family that attended U.C. Berkeley

I was curious, which member of this family attended U.C. Berkeley for college in the late 60's. I was thinking it might have been one of the de Massy's?

The reason I ask, is I currently own a 1968 Porsche 911 Targa that was originally purchased by someone in the royal Monaco family and given to one of the kids who was going to college in the United States in the late 1960's.

They used the car while in school until they sold it in the early 70's. Any help or maybe even pictures would really help!

Thanks so much

Paul

I would say no, unless they did when Grace was alive. And even then they probably would have come back to the States to celebrate w/ their American relatives.

I think I've read at Tina Brown' book that Princess Diana admired Princess Grace, because she was an Hollywood actress turned Princess and Princess Diana dreamed about the day she would marry a prince and became a princess just like Princess Grace, maybe that why Diana request it.

When Princess Grace was alive, she and Prince Raininer would celebrate Thanksgving. I read in one of her biographies, that the royal couple would invite officers from any American navy ships docked in the Monaco harbor for Thanksgiving dinner.
